In my typical blunt manner: If your boss is that fragile he shouldn't be in charge. His problems with the real world and getting along with every day events of life and management are just that *his* problems. Its not your place to be his emotional care giver. There have been many good pieces of advice on the phrasing and technique for delivering the news. I'm trying only to get your spine straight enough to delivery it. Be an adult, and talk to him like one.

The notice period in your contract is the agreed amount of time for knowledge transfer and helping to find/train a replacement. If you feel that he does need more and only if you wast to then the consultancy idea is a great one. He can call you up when he really needs it but but the higher fee puts pressure to only call you when he really needs help. After all, you have another place of work with new commitments.

Be warned, however, a new job is both invigorating and exhausting at the same time. It's tough to go home after a full day in a new place of work and find the energy for consultancy work.
