The space in which we live should be for the person we are becoming now, not for the person we were in the past – Marie Kondo

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all things organised!

IMG_0877I am SO passionate about living a life that ‘Sparks Joy’, each and every day, in everything that I do.  My goal is to share this with everyone I meet and help people achieve their ideal life, full of happiness.

Spark Serenity is a professional consultancy service, specialising in The KonMari Method™ of organising.  It was borne out of an all-consuming passion for tidiness.  It is led by me, Jenny, and I have spent my life making sure that everything has a perfect place and everything is in complete harmony, which I now want to share with you, so you too can achieve perfect order in your life.

I have lived in Bristol, UK for over 11 years with my husband and our fluffy bunnies.  Prior to this I moved around a lot and I believe this is where my unusual (some say weird) love of packing and unpacking comes from!  There is nothing I love more than unpacking and putting things in their new homes.  This love has led me to become a professional tidying consultant and create Spark Serenity, so I can spread the joy to as many people as I can.

My Journey

Although I have always been organised I realised my methods were actually still REALLY high maintenance and tidying was still consuming a lot of my time, moving things, cleaning things, reorganising things – it never seemed to end!  Then I discovered Marie Kondo and my whole approach changed.  It seemed so simple!  So I embarked on my very own KonMari tidying festival and I instantly felt lighter.  I let go of so much stuff I didn’t even realise I was unnecessarily holding on to.  I felt as though I had finally allowed myself to let go of the past and the clutter that was holding me back.  I no longer felt the need to surround myself in excess.  I now only bring items into my home that spark joy and shop only when I really need something (shopping most definitely does not spark joy for me!).  I now understand myself, what I like and I have identified my style which is something I have been trying to do for years.  I have more free time and have taken up a new hobby (archery!) which I love, as well as starting a business.  It literally changed my life.

My Approach

I understand that trying to tackle any sort of clutter on your own is overwhelming and most often you don’t know where to start, so these things end up piling up and become all consuming.  That’s where I come in.  I am here to make you feel positive about yourself and your surroundings and live a calm, organised, clutter free life with all the added benefits this brings.  I will approach everything with a non-judgemental, empathetic and understanding attitude to make you completely at ease, so we can make the most out of our tidying journey together, to help you to achieve your perfect life.  I will never make you discard anything you don’t want to, I am here to support you in your own decisions.  It will be difficult to begin with, but once you start seeing progress you will start to enjoy yourself!

No matter how reluctant or embarrassed you are, please don’t let that get in the way of you taking the first positive step, trust me, I do not shock easily!
