I qualified as a family law solicitor in 2007. I’ve worked in legal aid through to higher fee-paying clients and in small high street firms through to a PLC and top 50 UK firm. Throughout my career, I’ve experienced many of the different cultures, structures, and pressures that are common to most solicitors. In short, wherever you are in your career, and whatever your struggles, challenges, and pressures, I get it. I’ve likely gone through something similar myself
As solicitors, we have to give a lot of ourselves to our cases and clients. Over the years I’ve realised how important it is to reflect on and process our experiences and feelings, so we don’t burn ourselves out. When people ask me why I became a supervisor, I always say it is because I wish I had had supervision when I was working throughout my career. I love nothing more than helping others benefit from this powerful exercise to process their experiences in a healthy way and learn the coping mechanisms that are crucial for a long and successful career in our industry. Life should be a continuous journey of growth, and that’s exactly what my supervision is all about.
Being in family law, I’ve spent many years listening and caring for people, and these skills are now at the heart of what I do as a supervisor.
I’m based in Reading, Berkshire, but I help legal workers from all over the UK in person or via video call. No matter what your legal background or what stage you are in your career, I’m confident you’ll benefit hugely from our sessions. I look forward to meeting you and helping you build resilience, peace and confidence, at work and at home.
