Abstract: This paper considers the ideological effects of recent person-centred discourse concerning personal development planning (PDP) and work-life balance (WLB). Two inter-related areas are examined as key sites of this discourse: student participation in higher education and the notion of work-life balance in pursuing a professional career. Whilst on the face of it this discourse may seem personally liberating there are a number of problematic issues that follow on from this inward focus on personal reflection, and particularly in relation to gender. The root of this is the inherent voluntarism in such a focus and the concomitant dissolving of how gender impacts upon the individual.
