Question: How can I find a good feng shui consultant for my home? I think the feng shui in our home is really bad, but I had no luck in finding feng shui help. How do I choose a feng shui consultant, where do I look? Thank you.

Answer: Choosing a good feng shui consultant involves the same search process you apply when looking for any professional, be it a doctor or a landscaper.

First, I suggest you do your own quick feng shui research - either on-line or at the library - to get familiar with the field of feng shui and clarify your expectations.

 As feng shui has several schools with talented practitioners in each feng shui school, it is helpful to be aware of the basic differences between feng shui schools and choose the school you like the most.

Second, ask your friends, relatives or colleagues if they have had a feng shui consultation and can recommend a good feng shui consultant. The word of mouth is often one of the best recommendations, especially in the field of feng shui consulting.

Another way of finding a feng shui consultant in your area is to use the feng shui consultant search on the International Feng Shui Consultant Guild website. Do keep in mind, though, that there are many excellent feng shui consultants that are not listed in the directory. 

Once you have one (or several) feng shui consultant names, get in touch with them and ask for more details about their work, fees, consultation style, etc.

In most cases, the feng shui consultant will have various marketing materials, such as a website, a brochure or a couple videos that can answer many of your questions.

If the feng shui consultant is new in business and does not have much experience, ask to talk to at least one of his or her feng shui clients.

Alternatively, you can meet for a quick cup of coffee or tea and sense the energy of the person - is it integrous? Do they mean - and have the ability - to do what they say? Do you see yourself working with them? 

It goes without saying that in both cases it is important to know which bagua style/which feng shui school they are working with, as well as inquire into their professional training.

Even though you can always have a feng shui analysis of your home or office done long distance, it is still good to have a feng shui consultant visit your space, so I recommend to focus your feng shui consultant search locally.

Doing a thorough research, checking the feng shui consultant references, as well as being sure your expectations are clear, are all guaranteed ways to receive beneficial results from your feng shui consultation.
