Coaching

I am a career coach for women in law. My expertise is in delivering thoughtful and personalised coaching to help women through the critical stages of their careers to drive high performance and success. 

I provide practice owners with ongoing advice to manage their firm pragmatically and profitably; to align their actions with their vision; to identify the best clients and areas of work; to develop systems to support their strategy and most importantly how to develop their people.

Training

I design training programs to provide high quality professional development for women in law.  The programs are based on the best research available, combined with my extensive experience in legal practice, education, and practice management. Through both research and experience I’ve learned about the specific needs of women in the legal workplace and can offer strategies, guidance and support in leadership roles in law. 

Testimonials

"Through my coaching sessions with Cynthia, I am learning to see myself more objectively in the workplace. This is helping me to understand some key behaviours which are acting as roadblocks to my development and success. Throughout this process I am learning new strategies and approaches to challenges which have previously seemed insurmountable."
