Burnout and Compassion Fatigue

Law is a stressful profession. For many lawyers the non-stop demands of clients and the job can result in burnout. For those in high emotion practice areas, compassion fatigue can contribute to this.

Career Change and Identity Transition

Being a lawyer isn't just a career. For many it is a calling and a passion. So if the passion wanes, or you can no longer practice, that change of identity can be challenging.

Vicarious Trauma

Working with those who have experienced trauma, or with traumatic material can result in vicarious trauma. This is particularly an issue for those in the judiciary, and those who practice in crime, coronial, personal injury, abuse, and family law areas.

Workplace Bullying and Harassment

Unfortunately, bullying and harassment is much too common in the legal profession. It can be debilitating for those that find themselves targets of this sort of behaviour. But it does not have to be the end of your career.

Concerned about privacy and confidentiality?

As we do not offer rebates under Medicare, there is no external record of your using our services. So within the limits of the law, we are able to provide complete confidentiality. This is not the case where you utilise a GP Mental Health Care Plan through a psychologist or similar.
