The Carvalho Consultancy is an award-winning therapy, coaching and training agency. We specialise in working with lawyers and those involved in legal processes.

We support lawyers with the ups and downs of life and the job, providing practical, insightful support.

And we should know – we’re lawyers ourselves!


We are specialists due to our in-depth knowledge of the legal profession and what it’s really like to practice law.

Our therapeutic approach and coaching techniques are pragmatic and realistic, borne out of our own life experiences.

We also run hugely popular training seminars and workshops for law firms and other organisations on psychology and mental health in the workplace.


Established in 2018 by Annmarie Carvalho after over a decade at Farrer & Co, one of the top law firms in London, we understand well the inner workings of law firms.

As such, we are uniquely placed to provide bespoke guidance and support to firms on both staff and client-related issues.

Our goal is to make the law a more fulfilling and sustainable profession within which to work.

Our team includes Tim Rice, who offers both individual and couples therapy

Kate Hall is an individual and couple psychotherapist and a former family solicitor and mediator.

Stephanie Bell  is a psychotherapist, executive coach and a former criminal barrister who also worked as an employed barrister for the government.

We also have Adam Carvalho, a former litigation partner at Farrer & Co who works with us as a coach and foundational therapist.

We work with clients remotely and face to face and offer services across the UK with bases in London and the North West.

I can truly say that the experience of working with Annmarie was life-changing and now I feel I have the emotional tools to face new challenges in the future



This is what family lawyers should all aspire to – a model practice for our times.

Annmarie’s training should form an essential part of a practitioner’s toolkit when helping clients navigate difficult and traumatic periods.  I could not recommend Annmarie more highly.
