Lawyers

Helping legal practitioners thrive
If you are practicing law, I understand how demanding the profession can be.

You might feel like some days are more enjoyable than others. Or you could be questioning your commitment to your career in the law. It might feel like you can’t talk to anyone about how you feel and you need someone who really understands what it’s like practising law.

You might feel reluctant to talk about it especially as you have invested so much time in your career. And others may have made sacrifices for you to get to where you are today.  Getting help from a coach like me can help you talk more freely about what you don’t enjoy about your career in the law.

Here are some specific challenges that I can help you with

As a legal practitioner you may be feeling:

  • Confronted by the amount of marketing required to achieve billable work
  • Exhausted by the many ‘hats’ you wear each day
  • Frustrated by clients or colleagues that disrespect your time and efforts
  • Resentful that you have little control over your day
  • Apprehensive that you cannot see your situation changing

Apprehensive that you cannot see your situation changing

As your coach, I can help you re-engage with your career in the law

I can help you discover what is preventing you from enjoying your legal career and teach you how to connect with your practice and truly enjoy what you do. I know that how you manage stress is a big part of that and I can help you manage it more effectively.

I understand what you may be going through, wondering if there’s a better way to do what you do. Or perhaps you have tried some other ways and they haven’t worked. That’s why I provide a supportive environment for you to explore other approaches and determine which ones are the best fit for you.

With over six years’ experience supporting lawyers in large, international firms, and being married to a lawyer I am very familiar with the challenges of the profession. Surprisingly, experience has shown me the challenges aren’t too dissimilar whether you’re in a sole practice or large international firm.

Most people would describe me as empathetic, pragmatic and creative, which is important when you are trying to work out which approaches to adopt in your practice.

Coaching can improve how you practice law

Coaching can provide the support you need to help you find your way towards a more fulfilled legal career. Even if you’re feeling flat now, I can help guide you to making lasting, positive changes in your legal career.

Coaching can help you:

  • Determine the most effective way for you to market your practice
  • Build relationships one conversation at a time
  • Practice law with ease
  • Recognise the strengths you bring to your practice, clients and colleagues
  • Adapt to the changing legal landscape

It’s not easy managing your legal career but the good news is that it’s possible. And I have the experience to help you.
