What Can a Certified KonMari Consultant Do for You?

by Dec 1, 2018

The KonMari Method™ is an organizing system developed by Marie Kondo, author of the international best-selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

As a Certified KonMari Consultant I can coach you through a series of lessons predicated on the KonMari principles and teach you skills that help you to focus on what brings you joy all the while learning how to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose in your life. 

Through this process of letting go of physical items, you will begin to release old ideas, toxic relationships and habits that no longer serve you. You will begin to make room in your life and easily discern anything that does not support your better self. In essence, you will begin the process of putting all of your items and affairs in order. 

As you visualize your ideal lifestyle during this period of discovery it will become easier to determine what you will take with you into the future and what you can leave behind.

The steps of the KonMari Method™ are listed below but we will go into greater detail when we are in the one-on-one sessions.   I will be asking you specific questions that will help you move through the steps. I will also be leaving some homework with you to ensure that you have grasped the concepts fully.  By ensuring you understand the principles there will be less chance of a relapse. Understanding each stage will be motivating as you move through the stages of this method.

I will also teach you the folding techniques of the KonMari Method™ and how storing items efficiently and designating a home for your items will ensure your home runs more smoothly.  This method will create a more efficiently run household and as a result, reduce the every-day stresses of looking for items.

The KonMari Method™

  • Commit yourself to tidying up.
  • Imagine your ideal lifestyle.
  • Finish discarding first.
  • Tidy by category, not by location.
  • Follow the right order.
  • Ask yourself if it sparks joy.

I have coached numerous clients on the KonMari Method™ and each and every time I consider it an honour when a client reaches out to me for help and welcomes me into their home.   I have a feeling of happiness and gratitude knowing that they have taken the first step towards a life that truly sparks joy and that I have been chosen to help them on their journey.

“The question of what you want to own is actually the question of how you want to live your life.”
