Personal consulting is the model I have developed for helping people deal with life choices, when they feel stuck or need to bounce or talk through ideas before making an important decision.

Is there something about you’ve been promising yourself? Maybe you are putting up with a difficult situation because you “have no choice”, or simply because you don’t know how to go about tackling it, or where to start? Or perhaps uncertainty is holding you back in some way, or fear of failing prevents you from taking that vital first step.

I have published an article which explains what Personal Consulting is, how I came to develop my approach, and how it can help you get more of what you want in life.

What are YOUR lifestyle choices?

Do you have a dream? Perhaps you fantasise about a better life, or maybe you’d like to spend the rest of your days with the perfect partner… Create your own real-life rom-com.

We all have them (dreams I mean, perfect partners are a little harder to come by). We all face lifestyle choices as part of our inevitable growth and development. We promise ourselves that, when we get our act together, or we finally have the time or the money… we’ll do such-and-such… Some day…

Personal Consulting will help you when you have a dream, a goal or ambition that you’ve not actually got round to acting on.

How did Personal Consulting come about?

I developed my Personal Consulting model out of my work as a Solution Focused therapist and organisational consultant. I needed a way of defining the work I was doing that bridged both worlds. People would contact me to discuss life choices – for example for work or lifestyle guidance – that didn’t fit easily into either a therapeutic relationship, nor a training one.

‘Consulting’ was too broad and ‘businessy’, but Personal Consulting seems to set the right tone for what I do.

I’m Wrong About Most Things, At Some Point

We shroud ourselves in beliefs that help us feel secure. One of these is that things tomorrow will be the same as they were yesterday. But the idea that things don’t change is a delusion, that is all.

Nothing wrong with that, but it is best to recognise it, and to keep an open mind about what will happen next. The greater our need to keep things the way they are, the greater the risk of disappointment and even neurosis.

Trying to control the uncontrollable is unpleasant for us, and those around us.

Selective Optimism for Pessimists

There are advantages to optimism that are worth considering, but some people are put off because they don’t want to be disloyal to negativity.

Optimism and pessimism are generally seen as opposites, but that doesn’t mean they are mutually exclusive; learning optimism does not mean abandoning negativity. If that is what turns you on, stick with it.

If you tend towards a pessimistic outlook, how about learning selective optimism? That way you can get the benefits and still be true to your negativity.
