Annmarie provides training for organisations, particularly law firms and barristers’ chambers. Her training programmes cover a wide range of issues relating to mental health and psychology.
At its heart, my goal is to help people understand themselves and others better.
I love connecting with people as a trainer and the creative process involved with designing bespoke training programmes.
As a former lawyer myself, I appreciate the reality of having a high-intensity career and the toll that it can take. As a result my approach to training, while grounded in psychological theory, is intensely practical and down to earth.
My style is informal, approachable and collaborative. I connect with those I’m training by sharing my own experiences, provoking discussion and always try to make my audience laugh (or at least nod in recognition!).
My particular specialisms are stress, relationship difficulties (at work and home), mental health in the workplace and attachments and addiction. I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, a highly effective technique for working with people to effect change.
Previous workshops include:
- The Psychology of Family Law
- Practising Law in a Covid-19 world
- Wellbeing and mental health for lawyers
- Managing difficult relationships
- ‘Under the surface’ – the psychology of law
- Boundaries in the workplace
I’m happy to answer any enquiries about training opportunities and provide fee quotes on request.
“It is rare to find a training workshop that helps practitioners on both a personal and professional level, but Annmarie delivers just that. She connects with participants on a personal and genuine level, and generously shares her own “lived” experiences. It is easy to come away from training workshops with theoretical ideas only; Annmarie’s training goes much further, and I left with a clear idea as to how I could put such skills and ideas into practice to help both my clients and myself. Her 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.”
