At least 3 out of 10 of my new clients start describing their reason for seeing me, saying “I am a perfectionist”… I typically allow for a dramatic pause after this for both of us to enjoy. Then I answer in a humorous way, saying “I have green eyes. It's nice to know a little more about each other."
Then I elaborate, saying "What's wrong with you being a perfectionist? After all, perfectionism means doing what you do very well. What's so bad about it? Isn't it wonderful?"
They clarify "I worry about everything all the time, trying to take on everything and do it perfectly, this leads to constant burnout."
And here we get to the heart of the problem, which is not perfectionism.
Because perfectionists are the most reliable people, who do everything not just well, but very well! What's wrong with that? This is who we are.
The actual problem is taking on everything, and being unable to prioritise and focus.
I can help you learn to be a healthy and happy perfectionist, live with a focus, achieve outstanding results, maintain a resourceful state, and enjoy life.
I invite you to the first meeting with me, where we will draw up an action plan for qualitative changes in your life:
