I’m Åsa Nilsson and together with my husband, Thomas Kindberg, we help people who want to bring their life into order but don’t quite know where to start and need some professional help.

Sit down for a moment and let’s talk about Swedish Death Cleaning. It’s not as morbid as it sounds, I promise.

Have you felt your busy life is chaotic and you’re drowning in “I really have to do this but don’t have the time” moments when you’re chasing for your keys rushing out of the house?

Have you recently lost a loved one and need support with handling their belongings in your time of grief? 

Do you want to bring your affairs in order because you know you’ll die one day – as we all will, without exception – and don’t want to leave a mess behind for your loved ones?

Do you long for a cleaner, lighter living space today but don’t know what to keep and what to get rid of – and where does it all go?

If your answer is ‘yes’ to some or all of the above, Thomas and I are the people you’ll want by your side to support you and guide you with sensitivity, empathy and gentleness through the process.

We are here to help you honor your past while embracing your future.

Feeling overwhelm and frustration is natural! The more cluttered your home is, the more cluttered your mind is. Let us help you start your Swedish Death Cleaning process. 


You are not alone.

Together, we’ll go through your home, one room, one space at a time, clear out what no longer serves you and bring order into your home environment and order to your affairs with our proven method of Swedish Death Cleaning. – And no, it doesn’t involve us swinging a mop, and we are not a removal service, either.

Bringing order to chaos is our jam and we do it together with you, side by side, with you being the ultimate and sole decision maker. And we do it all around the world.

Swedish Death Cleaning encourages people to re-think their possessions while alive so as to not burden loved ones after they’re gone. Leave no mess behind, we believe!

No project is too big or too small. Too close or too far away. We spend our time together with you, transforming your home and your life, as well as giving you that much needed support and judgement-free presence to speak about the things that are often most difficult to discuss with others, especially the people closest to you.

What We Can Achieve Together

  • You will have more freedom and peace in your life.
  • You will have more money in your wallet and bank account because you will know what you own and stop buying duplicates of everything because you can’t find it.
  • You will have a game plan because you will have your very important documents filled out so that your loved ones know what your final wishes are.
  • You will have better, truer relationships because a part of decluttering your life ALSO includes decluttering people who are no longer part of your solution.
  • You will have better overall health because you are taking better care of your body temple.
  • Staying conscious and making better decisions through heightened awareness.
  • You will have a closer relationship with your loved ones because you are smart and share your heart with them NOW.
  • You set yourself free and possibly, in turn, set others free.
  • You will have more time on your hands because you have order in your life.
  • You will have more anti-perspirant left since you don’t blow it every morning, running around, trying to find your keys, wallet, or purse. Ha!

Who Are We?

Åsa – I was born in Sweden, raised in the USA and after many years living and working in the corporate life, I decided in 2011 to return to Sweden and find a more meaningful existence and occupation with all the skills I’ve acquired in my many years of doing business and helping people from all walks of life. Starting out as an internationally working life coach, I found myself evolving into death coaching as well with Swedish Death Cleaning.

Thomas – Born and bred Swedish, but also fluent in English like me, has worked many years in banking after which he switched careers to work in primary education. He is now retiring from this job and embracing life together with me as a Swedish Death Cleaner.

We don’t have formal qualifications in psychology, psychiatry, nor are we trained Shamans. BUT we do have a lifetime of acquired skills, both in working with businesses and caring for people’s needs, also in times of their greatest distress, that makes us uniquely qualified to best support you in your most vulnerable area of life – death. Whether it’s preparing for your own or a loved one’s or ending the chaos in your life in general to start fresh and make better and healthier life decisions. We’re here for all of it, holding space for you.


How Does It Work?

The first step is to get in touch with us and book a free discovery call. We’ll do a virtual tour of your home (or if you live close enough then we will do an actual walk through) and decide what needs to be done and how best to do it together.

If you’re happy with what we offer, we will compare calendars and decide when to get started. Remember, you are going to be working right next to us so you need to be available when we are there. 

We can help you declutter one room, one floor, the whole home, whatever you need! We are flexible and look forward to creating a package that works for your needs. 

We love to meet people where they are, meaning we come to your home wherever you live. It can be in Stockholm or Spain. Los Angeles or Örebro. 

We don’t work for you but with you! Taking responsibility for your own life is part of the process, as is decision making. – If that’s not you then we may not be a good fit. 

The Details

We break it down into 4 Phases + 3 Follow Up Calls

  1. Assess the current situation. Create a dream plan of what you want to accomplish in our time together based on a floor plan of the home and exterior buildings.
  2. Assess what needs to be prioritized during our time together. 
  3. We do the work, in proper order, we stick together, and we don’t move around the home. We don’t distract ourselves with other areas. We stay on task.
  4. We finalize the spaces we determined for our time together. All items that are deemed recyclables, garbage, and donatables are moved out.


Follow Up Video Calls: We will meet VIRTUALLY on 3 x 45 minute follow up calls to follow your progress on the additional areas that you are decluttering yourself after we leave.



We will meet you for a 2-hour virtual session where we review “The Greatest Love Letter You’ll Ever Write” (we provide this packet for you).

This packet remains with you and you will fill it in but we will help you get started. This packet includes your wishes and wants for your funeral (end of life), a record and location of important documents, account numbers, insurance policies, and so much more.

We will go over all the pieces with you, so you know how to fill it in and who to share it with so you can ensure you are not leaving a mess behind.  

Swedish Death Cleaning is a lifelong journey, and you will continue with it as long as you live.

We are honoured to help you get started.

What can you really expect…

Working with us will always be lighthearted. We love to have fun. We love to joke around. We love to eat. Åsa loves to sing. Thomas loves to drum. We love to listen. We love to share. Åsa loves to organize. We love to cook meals together for us and for you. Thomas loves to lift heavy things. We both are madly in love with animals.

Åsa loves to see the whole picture and break it down into small, bite-sized pieces. Thomas has a heart of gold and has experienced a lot of loss in his life and worked for over 25+ years in banking so he is well versed in speaking about death, sorrow, grief, financials, documentation, and planning. Åsa also has 10 + years  in banking, as well as 11+ years selling residential real estate so the experiences we offer run deep. 

We have a huge passion for traveling and meeting people from other cultures.

The conversations can be heavy at times talking about death, fears, concerns, wishes, wants… but one thing we are sure of is this… we can hold the space for you so that YOU can feel peace in your heart today. Not one day.

Life is for the living. So let’s enjoy it together.
