Does anyone have any advice for getting clients to back off a little? Am having continual comments on my style of communication and editing what I say and how I say it. It's early days and I want to nip this in the bud. It's really wearing and making me feel like I'm constantly wrong and being monitored. This male co worker/boss is extremely passive aggressive but also making me feel like an over emotional woman. It's a small team so feel awkward and worried about how sustainable this is.

It sounds like it's a non-starter. Particularly if the source of your problems is in a position of seniority. Sorry.

I think we need a bit of context. How are you being corrected? Can you give examples?

Emails I have sent are critiqued in their tone and content. My feedback feels unwelcome and brusquely ignored. And I say the above then somehow I'm being over emotional. I feel super stressed and not at all empowered to do the senior job I've been asked to do. Feel like a junior again where I'm undermined at each turn.

Issue being that my role is within a small biz where too many cooks etc.

I would finish what you are doing for them and then move on. I wouldn't comment on their response to your emails just charge them for your time ;-)
