Braving Boundaries

Coaching for Legal Professionals; Lawyer; Legal Consultant


Being a lawyer is tough. It’s a challenging job with long hours, complicated work and demanding clients, in a work environment that isn’t always the friendliest. As a lawyer myself for over 15 years, I know all too well how often work spills over into your personal life.
Sometimes it feels like you have to choose. Successful career or a successful life? But it doesn’t have to be that way. You really can have it all.

The focus of Braving Boundaries is two-fold:

(1) The primary focus is the individual lawyer at all levels (partner, associate, in-house counsel, trainee, legal secretary, business development team); empowering them to create a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life by establishing balance between the professional and the personal.

(2) The secondary focus is providing workshops / presentations (online and in person) to law firms and corporates on topics such as the importance of work life balance, establishing boundaries, and the more delicate issues faced by the legal world such as workplace ostracism, imposter syndrome, workplace relationships, mental health awareness etc.

Products & Services Offered:

⭐️ one-on-one coaching for legal professionals

⭐️ one-on-one coaching for professionals

⭐️ mental health workshops and seminars for law firms and corporates

⭐️ practical and educational workshops and seminars for law firms and corporates (e.g. building resilience, building confidence; work-life balance, addressing corporate bullying etc.)

Imposter Syndrome: Fighting the feelings of being a fraud

Imposter Syndrome refers to people who have a persistent belief in their lack of intelligence, skills or competence. Despite evidence to the contrary, they are convinced their successes are the result of luck, charm, connections or other external factors – not their competence and capability. Does any of this sound familiar? Well, luckily, you are not alone.
