'DR' is a 6-year PQE litigator,
"Before I started working with Paula, I was unsure whether I wanted to continue in law. I couldn't see an obvious way to reconcile the issues that were affecting me at work with remaining in the profession.
The fact that I know so many dissatisfied lawyers seemed to reinforce my impression that being tired and frustrated were the unavoidable ‘trade offs’ of working in a (largely) prestigious and well-paid industry.
After months of procrastinating, I made took the decision to enrol in the Lawyers Career Mastermind with the intention of leaving law altogether if things didn’t improve.
Paula has really helped me to think about the next stage of my career in new and challenging ways. A great deal of emphasis was placed on understanding my own individual needs and values and how to put structures in place to achieve them.
The approach was more holistic than I expected and, coupled with the invaluable weekly group sessions, hugely effective. It was incredibly reassuring to meet other lawyers who had similar concerns and with whom ideas and strategies could be discussed freely and safely.
The biggest result has been that I now have a much better understanding of how I work and what is important to me. This has boosted my confidence considerably and enabled me to secure numerous interviews and introductions that would not have been possible without Paula’s help.
My expectation that the process would simply involve tweaking my CV and running through some interview questions was completely misconceived. This is a course that empowers you to take control of what you want.
Paula highly personable, responsive and incredibly generous with her time. She has also worked with some of the best law firms in the UK and abroad and can therefore relate to any issues you may want to discuss.
This programme should be looked at as an investment which can benefit your career immeasurably. I cannot recommend it enough."
