I am an integrative counsellor, entrepreneur, trainer, speaker and writer (and a non-practising lawyer and mediator!)
I trained to become a therapist after working as a family lawyer and mediator at Farrer & Co, one of the top London law firms, for over a decade.
As a lawyer, I worked on complicated divorce and finances cases and difficult disputes over children. I came to realise that it was the relationships between people that I was really interested in and so set up The Carvalho Consultancy in 2018.
I am passionate about providing support, insight and strategic advice to lawyers and law firms alike.
I split my time between 1 to 1 counselling sessions with lawyers (and those in legal processes), training lawyers and providing in-house counselling and consultancy services to law firms.
I have the practical experience and knowledge of the profession to provide credible insight and understanding but from an independent perspective.
I have been at the forefront of bringing therapeutic understanding and insight to the legal profession and I love the fusion of these two professions.
I also work with clients going through relationship breakdown and divorce.
I’m not your typical inscrutable therapist. You will get to know a little bit of who I am when we work together.
I offer warmth, informality, integrity and creativity. I believe that my humanity and practical perspective is as important as the psychological theory underpinning it all. Having a sense of humour also helps!
In my spare time, I spend time with my twins, pet pug and family. I also love everything about Spain and Latin America and those cultures so can be found brushing up on my Spanish or running around our local parks.
