Join hundreds of lawyers who have chosen to BURN BRIGHT (not out!) in their legal career

Learn how to take your WELLBEING and DEVELOPMENT as seriously as you take the law and break the cycle of BURNOUT!

“It really is a life changing programme!”  Scott Walker, Solicitor

There is a reason why you are here…

You want to prioritise yourself EVEN when you are busy

You want to maintain focus ESPECIALLY on the tough days

You want to have a balanced life AND feel like a credible, highly competent lawyer

Seems impossible doesn’t it?

It’s not.

I want you to know that it is 100% achievable for you.

I know, because I was exactly where you are now when I was a lawyer.

I now have over 10 years of wellbeing and development experience behind me and I have used it to create a proven system to help you set solid boundaries around time for yourself and make them stick!

And which many other lawyers have used to help them BURN BRIGHT (not out!).

This is THE programme you need to BURN BRIGHT!

What if you could…


Understand your burnout

  • how it happens, signs to look out for and immediate steps to take

Implement daily wellbeing practices

  • stop ‘talking’ about what you need to change and actually make the change you need

Be your No.1 priority

  • guilt free whilst still being a team player and adding value in your role


and breathe

Here is what your future could look like…

Imagine – in just a few weeks you could…

…lift that relentless feeling of overwhelm and start feeling more confident and happy in all areas of your life, not just your legal career.

It’s a very good way to feel like you are learning something and then slowly transitioning into talking about you and working out what you need.

The Burn Bright Programme should be a compulsory module of PSC for all trainee solicitors as there is a complete lack of training in this area.

You didn't come this far to only come this far

Have we met?

Hi, I’m Donna Smith!

I know how challenging it is to be a lawyer. I was one!

I understand how hard it is to meet the increasingly high expectations and demands of clients, supervisors and partners, especially when you are are doing it in isolation, doubting yourself and not knowing who to ask for help.

It is my mission to make BURN BRIGHT the norm in the legal profession.

Break the cycle of burnout and get YOU on your priority list!

Why me?

The work I do is for lawyers who are determined to end that constant cycle of burnout where nothing ever changes because they are ‘too busy’ to focus on themselves.

As someone who has felt like that many times in the past, I know and value the huge benefits to be gained from working with someone who shines a light on the way forward and provides accountability for the actions needed to get there.


Your Investment

This is about creating a more balanced lifestyle so you can be your No.1 priority.

It’s about reducing the overwhelm and stabilising your stress levels at a ‘healthy’ normal for you.

It’s about experiencing more time and freedom to focus on your wellbeing and development as a lawyer.

This is a lifelong investment in YOU and your BURN BRIGHT journey!
