Supporting Barristers to proactively manage their Mental Wellbeing

Our specialised Occupational Health services are designed to help those working at the coalface of the legal sector with different mental health challenges. 


At UKIM, we specialise in providing personalised Occupational Health Services dedicated to enhancing and sustaining the mental wellbeing of barristers. Navigating the challenges inherent in the legal sector is not easy and this often results in mental and physical health being overlooked. We understand the importance of wellbeing initiatives - not just for the staff of large organisations with Occupational Health support, but for those who are self employed too. That's where our practical solutions can fill this perilous gap.

The Importance of Mental Wellbeing for Barristers

Barristers grapple with many challenges that can impact mental wellbeing, including burnout from high work intensity, case backlogs, excessive hours, sleep deprivation, the psychological weight of cases and the conflict between personal values and professional obligations

Recognising these complexities, our bespoke services are designed to provide comprehensive support. 


How UKIM OH Can Help

Whilst working in law can bring freedom, variety and the fulfilment of delivering justice - it can also bring intense mental turmoil. We're here to empower those who are consistently at the coal face of trauma to thrive mentally, ensuring that challenges are met with resilience and success.

A life-changing solution.
