The first step a client is asked to do is declutter the space. Once this is done then the Feng Shui cures suggested can be put in place.
How many times have we heard the story about everyone being different, some people finding their way through a messy room, and some others can’t function until everything is in the right place?
And it is true! We are all different, our goals are different, therefor if our needs are different, our cures are different too.
People can highly benefit from a tidy space, but it is not necessarily tidy what they need, it can also just be to organize the space differently than what it was previously to help the person feel differently, see things differently and have a sense of a fresh start.
Decluttering is a hard process, which is why I must establish a connection of trust and safety with my client.
The client can already be in a state of confusion, feeling stuck or overwhelmed, so it is already a difficult start, all the client needs is a supportive consultant to make their situation lighter and more meaningful.
My approach is very gentle and I 100% encourage the client to be in control of the process, I am there just to help with the thinking process behind every object or furniture in a nonjudgmental way.
There is nothing to be ashamed of if a space is cluttered, there are many reasons why this can happen, and it happens to most people at some point in their lives.
It can be that suddenly you’ve been given stuff from a family member, maybe you wanted to help someone else by decluttering their space and you took it all, or maybe you just don’t have time to declutter or you are in a fragile moment of your life where you feel the need of attachment.
My job is to understand in which phase of life my clients are, learn from them the meaning of the objects, the history, and the feeling attached to them, and decide with them the best course of action.
I can offer different services. After decluttering the space, I can also offer transport, I can take the unwanted items wherever need going, tip, charity shops, or even second-hand online. For this last option I can make an agreement with the client and in a situation where I manage to sell the items online, I will offer 50% of the sale back to the client.
