The Potential Cost of Being a Lawyer
Research consistently demonstrates that lawyers suffer from significantly greater rates of stress and depression than most other professions. Stress related health issues, drug and alcohol dependency and relationship breakdowns are widespread and on the rise. Obvious causes include billing targets, case pressures, long hours and client and organisational expectations. The Pandemic has made a serious problem chronic.
The New Science of Stress Management
Neuroscience has recently increased our understanding of how the brain and body responds to stress, which in turn has led to dramatic changes in how stress is managed.
We provide our clients with a toolbox of proven, research backed, traditional and cutting edge strategies and technologies that are used by corporate executives, special forces and other high stress professions and are supported by research coming out of Harvard, Stanford and other prestigious institutions.

Perform At Your Best Under Pressure
Working under pressure is an integral part of practice yet is frequently perceived as a factor undermining performance. When approached in the right way, pressure can be an asset that enables you to raise your game. Using a combination of strategies including psychological tools and breathwork practices we will help you:
- Stay calm and focused in high-pressure situations e.g. difficult hearings or last minute deadlines
- Maintain a ‘steady hand’ under pressure and during those times when things don’t go to plan
