Bar Council Launches “Wellbeing at the Bar” Portal


Earlier this month, the Bar Council launched a “Wellbeing at the Bar” website which aims to tackle the stigma associated with mental health and encourage members of the profession to better understand wellbeing and address the challenges faced by members of the Bar.

This month, Gillian Higgins at The Chambers of 9 Bedford Row, launches a new wellbeing initiative as she welcomes barristers and solicitors into chambers to practice meditation. The sessions are designed for beginners and address a wide range of issues including the management of stress, how meditation can increase focus, improve sleep, strengthen professional relationships and increase feelings of wellbeing.

Gillian has practised as a barrister for 18 years. She is also a qualified meditation teacher with the British School of Meditation.

To find out more about this latest initiative, please email Gillian directly at
