WHY CHOOSE ME?
I understand lawyers and the pressures they face, because I was a civil litigation solicitor (25 years PQE). I was the founding and managing partner of a successful niche personal injury practice for 13 years. The firm had a reputation for professional excellence, winning seemingly unwinnable cases and delivering great results for clients.
Unfortunately I became ill and had to sell the practice. I was devastated. All my future plans were dashed. During my recovery process I discovered coaching and its transformational power. I strongly believe that had I had executive coaching I would not have become ill and would now be running an even more successful legal practice, as well as enjoying a good work/life balance.
After extensive retraining as an executive coach I want to share the benefit of my coaching experience with you. Coaching will change your whole life for the better, both at home and at work.
Coaching will enable you to achieve that elusive work/life balance. It will free you up to attain peak performance and achieve your ambitions.
Your personal & professional goals will become a reality. Successful coaching will give you contentment and happiness.
Evidence of my gravitas and business credibility is demonstrated by the fact that I started my personal injury business with 1 client, 1 secretary, 2 rooms and 6 month old twins. Within 10 years the firm had hundreds of satisfied clients, a staff of 10 and a £1 million turnover.
I have extensive business leadership experience at strategic and operational level. I am a former chair on two Non-Executive Boards and am a qualified trainer for the Ministry of Defence, the Career Transition Partnership and Help for Heroes.
I specialise in coaching lawyers. I talk your language. I understand your role, the pressures you are under and I have practical knowledge of your organisational context. I appreciate your challenges and can help you to move forward.
I help lawyers deliver their peak performance achieving success at work and home.
Running your own business is not easy to switch off from. In law, meeting clients’ expectations together with
A big part of the challenge of the Practice Manager role is that it evolves as the business evolves and you have to redefine it yourself and work out what you can delegate in order to add the new tasks into the mix. The other challenge is the wide range of tasks – some very serious and intellectually challenging and others completely mundane and dull but all need dealing with. Then we have the reactive vs the proactive. All these things together mean you need to be able to manage time or at least have a protected space every so often when you stop and take control of your to-do list and do not feel you are just reacting to events as they happen. Coaching made me set aside time to tackle specific challenges which were buzzing in my mind but which kept being put on the back-burner. I would not
Alison coached me through a particularly stressful time in my career. I felt a need to regain control but did not know where to start. I was extremely self-critical and that made me unhappy. Coaching has enabled me to recalibrate my life, giving me more control and confidence including the confidence to start on a new role as a self-employed lawyer and reduced my stress. I am now loving my work and getting much more satisfaction out of it and am less stressed and calmer at home
Six months ago I was confused about where I would take my career. Alison asked really insightful and deep questions which have required me to really look closely at myself but have enabled me to come up with solutions. Coaching has forced me to think through things which I might otherwise have avoided. Coaching has given me much needed direction and focus. Alison has enabled me to identify and define goals in way that I have never done before. I now have a clear plan that I am determined to deliver on and I genuinely feel that I will now achieve my goals. I wish I had had coaching at an earlier stage of my career’
Coaching for me has been helpful and relevant. Alison has taken the time to get to the bottom of what has been limiting my development and helped me focus on the things that I need to do to achieve my goals. Alison has been supportive and challenging in equal measure.
