These are the services I offer to help you with, each of them is a root of your life that is leading you to the main Root of Joy. In whichever one you have resistance we will deal with it accordingly. Although I recommend the KonMari ™ method by Marie Kondo, it is possible to declutter and organize following conventional methods or something between the two, all according to your wishes. You can find more details about the KonMari™ method in the articles under the “Media” section. From the root, up we go!

Founder of Root of Joy, certified Konmari® Consultant, certified NLP practitioner and Zero waste enthusiast. I am here to help you start making changes in your life.
Although I have a Master degree of Economics I was always drawn to psychology and after years of reading self-help books, therapy’s, hypnosis and communicational workshops I came to a realization that I gain more in life the more I let go. With that in mind, I decided to grow myself new roots.
First came the sleeping root – what do I need to let go to sleep better? Then came the eating root – what is really on my plate? The root of exercise did not linger long behind and soon after came the Zero waste root – what am I leaving behind me in our nature? Then it was time for the financial root – in what areas can I let go of spending? Lastly came my belongings root and the famous KonMari Method® introduced by Japanese Marie Kondo.
Having to move nine times throughout past years I learned how to adjust to different spaces and find best storage solutions but most of all I have learned that our relationship with our things is indeed special and deep. What items elevate me and make my life simple and what items make my life complicated.
Making a home and work place a serene ambience in a way that puts emotions instead of thoughts as a main cause of all our decisions in the day, blended perfectly with psychology and working with people.
My experience showed me that current state of all our roots on which we stand are the mirror of our current emotional wellbeing. When we turn inwards and honestly answer ourselves when we really mean “no” and when we really mean “yes”, the fate of all our other relationships will be authentic.
Welcome to Root of Joy, please make yourself comfortable!
The intention behind this name is to grow your home and workplace new roots, those connected to the main root - our inner joy.
This root of joy is different for each one of us, so it can be thicker, thinner, expand in depth or width, and be associated with totally different things. Given that joy is often a very intimate and for each individual specific phenomenon, it is very important to listen carefully to what our intuition tells us while interacting with our things and everything else around us.
As the root itself knows best which substances are optimal for its plant, so we, whether we are aware of it at this moment or not, know deeply inside ourselves for each thing whether it is good for our home and life, or not. Very often though, at first, such a simple decision is actually too complicated for us because of too strong connection with the past, irrational fears for the future, more and more tempting but deceptive advertisements all around us and because of the frequent imagining of living in someone else's stories.
In that sense, you may need my help.
With me, in addition to practical tips, you will learn how to listen, hear and feel the voice, or rather the rumble of your root of joy. Once you gather enough experience beside me dealing with the already existing clutter around you, you will later find that you will not easily allow things to emotionally blackmail you and enter your home and life lightly and contrary to your real desires.
Perhaps even more important experience that will happen is the one where you will also learn to accept and find happiness in the things which you currently do not like but for some reason you need to share your home and life with.
This is not by any means an easy journey, but it sure is the one well worth it.
A great teacher once explained the difference between joy and happiness. “Happiness is when you feel happy and good. Joy is when you feel everything, when one emotion is not better than the other one.”
Happiness is the sun. Joy is the sun and the rain. We need both even though we hate them in one time, and adore in another. Going through our work together there is no doubt that the rain will visit us, but we will be prepared this time with cosy book and tea to welcome it, as that is the only thing that the rain wants from us.
If you will need me, you will hopefully need me only once. I’m here to show you how to choose a direction and set a pace, and then the path is all yours. I will both happily and sadly wave you goodbye, but then again, that is what joy is all about.
"The Konmari method with Petra was a completely new experience! I finally got rid of the excess unnecessary things that I would probably never got rid of by myself. It is very different when you have a person next to you who knows what questions to ask to get at the bottom of the matter. The closet and bathroom were finally organized leaving excess space even six months after organizing. I recommend the Konmari method to everyone, especially if you have a person next to you like Petra."

"Although I am always skeptical of anything unconventional, Petra left me without arguments in a few hours. With her extremely cheerful and positive attitude, she proved to me that every object can find its place in the house. The biggest difference is that my house is no longer only organized at first glance but also behind closed cabinet doors, shelves, or closed drawers. A seemingly plain cardboard box turned the messy interior of the closet into a functional and neat closet, and the kitchen seemed more spacious than before because there was nothing left on the work surface. With Petra's help, within a week I fully accepted this way of organizing the home and started implementing daily her tips for a tidier and more functional home but what made me even happier was the fact that my husband and son also started to participate in this way of tidying up."
Josipa A., Zagreb, Croatia
"At first, it seemed to me that the whole process was too much for me and my goal was just to organize the kitchen using the Konmari method. The idea of finding a place for everything in the house and respecting that place seemed like something wonderful but unattainable. The Konmari festival was physically and emotionally exhausting but the award was above all expectations. Now when I see my living space from the entrance, I feel the freshness and lightness that was not there before. Every return home is a return to the most beautiful place in the world. Today, I enjoy a lot more the process of choosing the details for my home, which make my home mine."
