An awareness of what can lead to lawyer burnout is necessary due to the multiple factors involved, such as the pressures and challenges of entering the profession, the competitive work environment, and the impact a demanding career can have on your personal life.
I combine therapy and coaching strategies to help you understand and deal with the impact of burnout and enable you to develop better work habits that enhance cognitive performance and resilience.
Those of you who work in law and finance in The City of London are the high performing elite of your professions. Yours are intrinsically challenging occupations that come with extraordinary demands and stresses, on which you may at times thrive. Yet, despite outward appearances you may not be happy. Your health may be suffering. The stress, and other events in your life, can impact your mental and physical health. At these times, you may need experienced professional support to get your life back on track. I work with high achieving City professionals, like you, so have unique insights into your organisational culture and the psychology of high achievers. With this specific knowledge of your day-to-day context, I begin our exploration to bring change by understanding and exploring your challenges and their cause.
I know your time is precious. I have over 25 years’ experience of delivering and researching psychological services. During this time, I have developed my own approach that rapidly helps you to discover the core reason for your problems. I draw upon a range of psychological approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), hypnosis, somatic psychology and neuropsychology to provide you with optimal therapy solutions. You should know from the outset that I do not just provide ‘talking therapy’. If you just want a ‘talking therapy’ then, I am probably not the right psychologist for you.
I work with my clients to develop the right personalised psychological tools and techniques to support change. I pride myself on my ability to help my clients make positive changes so they can be happy, healthy and enjoy and maintain their success. I use an online brain health assessment service developed by Cambridge Brain Sciences that accurately measures core elements of your cognitive function and mood, including memory, attention, focus, reasoning and verbal abilities. This brain health assessment helps to monitor and manage core areas of your brain function that are key to your mental health and wellness. You can try the brain health assessment technology here with a free assessment of your mental concentration and focus abilities.
