Personal Consulting Services vs. Therapy and Counseling

Personal consulting is a new form of support for people facing life’s challenges. It’s like therapy and counseling, but much different in the way it is conducted. Learning more about each one will help you decide what type of consulting is best for you.

Therapy and Counseling

When you decide to see a therapist or counselor, you are deciding to open yourself up to someone who will analyze your words and thoughts. This person will listen intently to what you say and identify some issues that you may have no realized. Once these issues are identified, you and the therapist/counselor will work together to solve them.

This can be bothersome to many people. They do not want to rehash emotions that have already been either buried or resolved. They simply just want someone who will listen to what they are thinking, and provide support through the challenges they face in life.

Personal Consulting

Personal consulting is perfect for individuals who aren’t looking for an in-depth look into their psyche. They just wish they had someone near them they could spill their guts too and then discuss what to do next in the life.

A personal consultant is much like a confidant – someone you feel close to and trust. This person will listen intently to you and let you completely unload everything that is on your mind. When you’re done, you feel free and so much more able to take on the world.

Personal consulting is different from therapy and counseling because you don’t have to go anywhere. You can stay right at home and pick up the phone to have your session. This means you don’t have to take time out of work, drive anywhere, or risk having someone see you at a therapist’s or counselor’s office. It’s completely private and everything you speak of is held in the strictest of confidence.

What Is Best – Therapy/Counseling vs. Personal Consulting

The answer depends on what you need at this time in your life. If you feel you have a lot of history to cover and deal with, therapy might be your best choice. However, if you feel that you just need someone to coach you through this time in your life and all you need is someone to be there for you – personal consulting is best.

Most people need personal consulting more than they need therapy/counseling, but they don’t realize it because they haven’t heard of it. Knowing your options will help you get the support you need, so you can quickly improve the quality of your life.
