Cognacity are global experts in mental health and performance
We support some of the most successful organisations in the world to build better mental health, resilience and performance.
Our experts operate across the mental health spectrum, and we have significant experience in the legal sector.
Whether it be working with intact legal teams under pressure, providing training to specific cohorts or providing targeted 1:1 support, our interventions offer assurance, discretion and impact.
We are one of the few consultancies to have the effectiveness of our work externally validated and published in independent, peer-reviewed journals.

After our successful resilience training with Standard Chartered’s legal teams in New York and London we were asked to create a cross-organisation resilience and mental health programme called ‘Realise Your Potential’.
The programme was rolled out globally across all four of the bank’s regions and played a significant role in its response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Private Law Firms
We have extensive experience of working within private law firms, to help support mental wellbeing and performance.
Our experts have worked with all the Magic Circle law firms in the UK as well as US-based firms like Norton Rose Fulbright, Skadden, Hogan Lovells and Mayer Brown. We understand the distinct demands placed on lawyers and the professionals who support them,
During the height of the Deepwater Horizon oil crisis, BPs legal team – the largest team of corporate lawyers in worldwide – were under severe pressure. The challenge was to provide evidence-based tools and techniques to help them navigate the unrelenting pressure emerging from the crisis.
We delivered global resilience training which was shown to have a measurable impact on performance and health, with significant reductions in work-related fatigue (research published in the Journal of Occupational Psychology).
Outside of the legal sector we also have experience of working with large professional services firms.
As PwC’s mental health partners, we offer a range of services to help boost mental health and performance, including board-level advisory work, new Partner Induction training, Partner support, cohort specific training (for example support to senior Associate population) and clinical work.
