I'm Christine, a Certified KonMari Consultant
I am the first certified Konmari Consultant in the Philippines. I attended the KonMari Consultant Seminar in New York in 2017 and received my certification in 2018. I have spent hundreds of hours working with clients in tidying their homes and also serve as a resource person for workshops and media on the topic of tidying and decluttering.
My own journey began when I first discovered Marie Kondo and her book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up in 2014. Overwhelmed with the stuff I accumulated over years of mindless consumption, and feeling its toll on my well-being, I put the KonMari principles to practice and felt an immediate lightness in mood and clarity of mind. I have since used my own experiences and learnings to support others in their decluttering journey.
Spark Joy Spaces
"I went through a whole house Konmari overhaul in 2017 and our lives have never been the same since. Going through the process really changes you in a soul level. Konmari shifts your energy and invites so much good into your space. I’ve seen so many things open up for me when my house and my mind was cleared of clutter. Not just me, but my son is changed too. I’m glad he’s starting with this awareness at a young age."
"Tin Dychiao came to our home in January 2018. I initially didn’t think I needed a consultant because I felt I knew how to organize myself. However, I thought I might learn more from personal coaching ... and I did! 20 months later, the general organization is in place, there are still days of “mess” but it’s easy to go back to organization. Most importantly, the best thing I took from sessions with Tin is trying to understand what matters most - applying Konmari to our values, on choosing where to put our money, to only buy what’s enough, to view things from abundance rather than lack and ultimately find out what sparks authentic inner joy. I couldn’t have gotten to this point without personal consultations with Tin and for this, I am truly grateful."

"Konmari’s timing in my life couldn’t have been better. We were renovating the house, and was set to move to a smaller space. Through the Konmari process, I learned that I had been living in the shadow of fear of people not liking me — thus I ended up with things I couldn’t give away! During the time I was cleaning out, I finally felt the power to give away gifts that I would NEVER use, and the things that I bought to make myself “feel better”.
While I know that retail therapy can indeed be some form of therapy, if nothing within me is fixed, then — it just becomes a cycle .
I’ve learned to stop purchasing things that will give me a temporary high, because I’ve learned how to be “high” on myself. I’ve learned to put away neatly so I remember where all my things are. I’ve also learned, that, sometimes, you fall off the “tidying” horse. And it’s okay. I can get back on anyway."
