The 5 Key Steps to Progressing Your Legal Career Today

Are you a lawyer frustrated by your lack of career progress?

 Perhaps you’re tired of second-guessing yourself, wondering if you’ll ever have the confidence to go for the career you really want?
 
Or you're not sure how to position yourself to land your next exciting opportunity?

If you’ve fallen out of love with your legal career and are unsure where to turn, you may need professional coaching for lawyers.

Even a little bit of coaching can completely turn your fortunes around.

I'm the Career Coach for Lawyers

With over 25 years of experience in the legal profession, I have a long history of helping struggling lawyers to get their careers back on track.

I've coached 100s of lawyers, from trainees all the way to senior partners, and I know what separates the lawyers who miss out on career advancement from those who succeed.

My professional coaching for lawyers strategy takes a pragmatic approach to mentoring by using a combination of inspirational coaching and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) to help lawyers find success in the next chapter of their careers.

I have trodden the same path as you.

I qualified at a Silver Circle firm as a project finance lawyer. I loved my job, but hit my head on the glass ceiling and so moved into the people side of the profession. I ran my own coaching consultancy for 10 years before joining Magic Circle firm Slaughter and May as Head of Recruitment. I then moved to Allen & Overy LLP to set up the in-house career coaching service.  

In 2019, I founded the Lawyers Career Mastermind and returned to what I love most - coaching lawyers to build their confidence, authenticity & personal brand to land their dream role, or secure their next promotion, and to find the career fulfilment they deserve.

Testimonials

Former US law firm associate, now in-house legal counsel 

 "Five months after our first session, I was offered an in-house legal role at one of my clients (a position I was headhunted for!) It's a role which ticks all the boxes - and I've now started there with a ton of confidence.

Through our conversations and from doing the work in between the coaching sessions, I grew to believe in myself and my abilities once again.

I also came to understand my values intimately, and what I really wanted out of my career.

Over the course of the programme, I shed a lot of the beliefs that were holding me back from thriving in my career."

 "I wouldn’t be where I am now without Paula’s invaluable help and her no nonsense approach.  She didn’t go easy on me, made me question my career trajectory and pushed me to ask for the things I was too afraid to ask. She showed me that there were other options and gave me the confidence I needed to make a change.  Being a lawyer herself, she understands how the industry works and can give the insight many of us miss being stuck in the same environment for many years. An inspiring coach for anyone feeling that there is something missing in their careers."

 "I was feeling dissatisfied at work and considering leaving the profession. I was open to coaching, but hadn’t come across a lawyer-specific career coach before.

 Through my coaching with Paula, I’ve been able to work through my issues with someone who’s a specialist in this field. She was thoughtful, considerate and good humoured.  
Now I’m looking forward to excelling in my career and utilising the strategies she has given me to become more successful. If you are a lawyer and putting off fixing your frustrations, don’t wait - do it today!

"Before I started career coaching with Paula, I felt 'stuck'.
 
Yes, I had a good job but I was starting to feel pigeon-holed and didn't know how to change my career direction.

Paula gave me the tools and insight to question where I wanted my career to go and how to get there.
Through our one-on-one calls, together with her mindset tools, I realised that I wanted to move into a completely different area in the legal industry.

I also felt I had confidence to do this from Paula's holistic approach to career progression, something I was missing 12 months previously due to self-limiting beliefs.

Through working with Paula over the last 6 months, I have built a positive mindset which prepared me for interviews for positions which were very different from my private practise role. I have now obtained the right job for me as in-house counsel for an international corporate.

I cannot recommend Paula enough - professionally she goes above and beyond and personally she is a really lovely person..
