We are a group of people passionate about life and about you.
We are leaders in our field and are here to help.
We are all fully qualified and certified KonMari Consultants trained by Marie Kondo and her education team, and we all live in the UK and are members of APDO (the UK’s membership association for decluttering and organising professionals). Between us we have hours and hours, years and years of experience. We have travelled the world serving clients and corporations alike. We have been featured in publications and broadcasts and there is much more to come...
....this is where, when and how we began The Spark Joy Collective
The KonMari History
Marie Kondo started offering training in the KonMari Method® in Japan as a way of helping her own clients who had completed their tidying festival to reach out and help other people discover the same life changing experience.
New York in the USA saw the official launch of the Consultant Certification Course with Marie Kondo along with her husband Takumi as Co-founder.
Following the success of the programme in New York and the demand for training, more Consultants were trained in San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Four of our team trained in the USA.
Amongst growing popularity and global interest, the Consultant Certification Course was rolled out to help facilitate the training of consultants in Europe, with the UK being the first country outside of USA to receive training in the KonMari Method®, as well as continuing to train consultants in the USA.
By 2020 many students had enrolled on the consultant certification course, many of whom were trained in the UK.
Five of our team trained in the UK.
Saw the launch of the Virtual Consultant Certification Courses, training over 600 consultants-to-be in the KonMari Method®, from 60 countries.
One of our team trained globally online.

It is not unusual to be overrun by emails and the first step here is to have a good clear out of your inbox.
Marie Kondo's 'The KonMari Method' is not about minimalism, nor about having a Pinterest perfect house, or an Insta-worthy lifestyle.
