You’ve worked hard to get to where you are as a legal professional. And you do it because you want to help people. But working long hours coupled with high caseloads and intense projects is no longer sustainable. You’re beyond stressed and it’s starting to show. With so many competing pressures, it feels almost impossible to switch off at the end of the day. Bearing the full weight of your responsibilities is wearing you down. Your belief in your work keeps you going but something has to change if you want to continue working in law.
Take care of yourself, so you can better take care of your clients.
Don’t just survive at work. Thrive. Talk to someone who gets it. At YTherapy, we provide therapy and wellness support for legal professionals. We can help you flourish.

Introduce YTherapy’s team wide mental health support as part of your Employee Assistance Programme.
No matter what area of law you work in, you’ll come up against challenges every single day.
If feelings of anxiety, stress or the effects of secondary trauma are starting to get in the way of you doing your job as a lawyer, we’re here to help you take back control.
No one ever got an award for ‘most burnt out’.
Mental health support is for everyone.
If your mental health is being increasingly impacted by your cases or working environment, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. Counselling can help.
YTherapy offers a range of mental health support for legal professionals.
Working together, we’ll look at how things are affecting you and how you’re coping. With our mind & body approach to mental health and wellness, we’ll help you get to the root of your challenges and equip you with tools to build your resilience.
You’re working long hours, juggling several files (often with difficult clients), and you have to hit a certain number of billable hours. These things start to add up.
Soon, feelings of anxiety also start creeping in.
During your anxiety therapy, we’ll talk about your working life and where this anxiety may be coming from. And from here, we’ll equip you with a number of tools so you can get back to doing what you do best.
You may think that stress is part of the territory of working in the legal profession. Whether you’re a newly qualified lawyer or an established partner in your law firm, we’re here to reassure you that burnout doesn’t have to be part of your job.
If anxiety is left unchecked, it can quickly lead to burnout. Humans aren’t designed to be under a lot of stress for any prolonged period of time. Our systems get tired quickly if we don’t take care of them.
You may use your stress and burnout therapy to re-establish healthy work boundaries. You may want to talk to us about healthier ways of coping with high-stress and even crisis situations.
Sometimes it can be hard to fully separate work from life.
You may be working on cases that trigger past trauma to resurface. And it can be difficult to know how to handle those situations. How can you provide the best service if you’re struggling to compartmentalise?
In trauma therapy, we’ll work together to talk through your challenges and help you bring better balance to your work and personal life.
If you’re a criminal lawyer, a medical or accident claims specialist or insurance lawyer, you may often hear or see graphic information and images. When you pick up a new case or when you sit in court listening to evidence, you may find yourself living and re-living traumatic events through your clients. All of this counts as vicarious trauma.
Your clients’ stories may start to grind you down and cause compassion fatigue. This may, in turn, lead to feelings of anxiety and depression.
YTherapy provides a safe, supportive environment for you to process your secondary trauma. We’ll help you to build resilience in your role as a lawyer.
We’ll be here for you when you’re ready.
Simply follow these three simple steps to start your journey to a brighter, more resilient future.
