Swanage solicitors tackle challenge of ‘managing stressful conversations’

MANAGING stressful conversations was the topic at a special session for Swanage solicitors.

Staff at Ellis Jones Solicitors marked Mental Health Awareness Week with a Lunch & Learn workshop, with Dorset Mind.

The workshop was held in-person and remotely for staff in the firm’s six offices, including in Swanage High Street.

Nigel Smith, managing partner, said: “Law can be an extremely pressurised profession, especially when dealing with clients and colleagues at some very difficult times.

“We are committed to supporting our people in a meaningful way by creating a working environment with an ethos of support and a focus on wellbeing inside and outside of the office.

“Dorset Mind joined us for a very well received Lunch & Learn meeting in January and we are grateful to the charity for returning for another incredible valuable session during Mental Health Awareness Week.”

Ellis Jones holds two to three Lunch & Learn sessions each month for personal and professional development in a range of subjects.

County charity Dorset Mind supports people experiencing mental health problems in accessing vital support.

The charity says one-in-four people will experience a mental health problem of some kind each year in England.
