Helping lawyers and their clients

The Carvalho Consultancy is an award-winning counselling agency specialising in working with lawyers and those involved in the legal process.

We provide individual and couple therapy and workplace counselling. We also provide psychology and mental health training for law firms and barristers’ chambers. 

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

Annmarie Carvalho is a therapist, mediator and family solicitor (non-practising) and so is uniquely placed to provide practical guidance and emotional support to those involved with the law.

She provides therapy for adult individuals, workplace coaching and counselling (specialising in lawyers) and divorce support. 

‘If I go to the doctor, I want an accurate diagnosis and a plan for recovery but it has to be delivered with emotional intelligence and empathy. So, as a counsellor, I give my clients practical help and tools to help them move forward with compassion and psychological insight.’

Tim Rice offers both individual and couples therapy. He specialises in relationship issues and works with couples who wish to stay together and also those who want to separate with integrity and dignity, the focus being on any children involved.

We also offer training seminars and workshops for law firms on psychology, stress, mental health and relationships in the workplace.

Annmarie was outstanding as a family lawyer. She is an excellent mediator, now also offering therapy. Great combination to help those going through separation or divorce.

“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.”

Stacey Nevin, Senior Associate at Kingsley Napley solicitors

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