The Lawyer’s Dilemma

‘Resilience And Happiness In The Life Of A Lawyer’

A lawyer’s life can be emotionally difficult.  Yet feeling bad and not coping runs counter to the lawyer’s role: the strong advisor on whom anxious clients can depend.

Many lawyers suffer: anxiety, panic attacks, dissatisfaction at work, relationship issues, illness, addiction, depression and suicide.

Lawyers who are suffering need to believe that things can get better, that they can be happier, and part of that process is recognising that they are hurting and believing that they can overcome their difficulties.

Finding happiness and living well is a personal journey for everyone. In this session, you can begin to explore this difficult and personal question.

Weisim will talk to us about, amongst other things, finding meaning and purpose, having personal power, managing our relationship with money, discovering resilience and survival, and discovering your gifts.
