'Your home is a portrait of yourself'. - Elizabeth Gilbert
I’m Michelle, originally from the Netherlands and living in Zurich since 2012, with my husband and two children.
My journey started after reading 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up' (2011) and tidying my own home. The effect and results of this process, and the way it reflected on my life, blew me away.
It helped me choose and value what really matters to me and what truly brings me joy. It gave me a sense of lightness and calm, awareness and gratitude in living with only those things I love.
The Spark Joy approach has become the foundation of the choices I make in all areas of life.
Our move to Zurich gave me the chance for new beginnings and I decided to follow my heart and take upon the journey of becoming a
KonMari Consultant. I was certified in December 2018.
With Simply Serene I brought together my lifelong passion for organizing, my love for working with people and extensive experience as a social worker in guiding families through life transitions.
As a tidying coach I am welcomed into people's most personal place, their home, and as soon as we start to tidy I see and feel the change in people’s spaces and hearts. Something happens.
There is a tangible movement, that I call a shift of energy, in the house and within the people, that brings about harmony, calm and happiness.
This inspired me to continue my journey and delve into the Art of Feng Shui. I studied Conceptual Feng Shui with Nina Elshof, renowned Master in Feng Shui and Nine Star Ki, and founder of Conceptual Feng Shui, at the Feng Shui Academy in Zutphen, The Netherlands.
Little did I know that Feng Shui would profoundly change the way I see life and living...
If you would choose Joy
If you would surround yourself with only those things you Love
If you would live more Lightly
How would your life change?
My name is Michelle. As a KonMari Consultant I guide and support you in your personal journey to tidy your home and create space for a life you love.
