The Process

Teaching others to tidy is a passion, pleasure and privilege, as you experience the joy of discarding things that you no longer want, need or love you will experience the joy of discarding, learn to love tidying and feel supported in creating the home and life that you have longed for. You will feel supported in creating a home that is not only liveable, but feels bright, light, spacious, deeply personal and works for you as an individual on a practical level.

To do this it is essential to learn to tidy. Through applying the Konmari method you will escape from the pattern of clutter and chaos. You will feel joy in changing your habits, through changing your way of thinking and consequently changing your lifestyle.

5 categories/stages of Konmari method, in order:

  • Clothes
  • Books
  • Paperwork
  • Komono (all other belongings)
  • Sentimental items

Each category is addressed by all items in this category being gathered in one place, and then the individual holding one item at at time and deciding "does this spark joy" and "do I want to keep this item?"

In my experience as client's progress through each category they will hone their ability to connect with whether items spark joy for them, and this process will become increasingly joyful and fluid.

Other services include:

  • Hourly decluttering support
  • Support with downsizing
  • Support in preparing to move home
  • Support with resettlement
  • Tidying lessons - children and adult lessons
  • Folding and storage lessons - children and adult lessons
  • Support with organising office areas
  • Support with home staging for house sales
  • Support with estate management
  • Support with linking into and identifying community resources
  • Advice with discarding/disposing
  • Telephone support with decluttering process

There will be an initial consultation, during which we discuss your current feelings about your home and life. In a supported and non judgemental space, you will have the opportunity to explore your current feelings about your life and living space. We will look at your feelings about your home and both your immediate and longer term goals for yourself, your life and your home.

How we experience our home and our lives is deeply personal and individual. The Konmari method follows a specific pattern, making the process of decluttering and tidying very clear and accessible. You will be supported to take part in this process. 

 

To get the best value and result from the Konmari method it is recommended that each lesson is a minimum of three hours, and maximum of 5 hours. Clients have found that this time passes quickly and have been surprised how quickly they have reached the end of their lesson. At the initial consultation we will identify the number of lessons required to complete the work that the individual wishes to address.

"Working with Clara was a true inspiration.  Having worked myself as a declutterer for seven years I thought that my drawers were fairly good, but Clara has upped my game.  I can now boast of one of the smallest pant drawers ever and a home filled with objects that only bring me joy.  Thank you Clara!"
