Hey @Browniebrown welcome!
The best all-rounder tool for general pruning work like that is a pair of long-handled loppers.
These ones from Fiskars are great but you can get models with longer handles & cheaper ones too.
They are handy as you can get right into shrubs & they can cut quite large branches too. Good for prickly stuff like blackberry as you don't need to get your hands into the bush.
I would still recommend some good, heavy gloves.
You'll also find a pruning saw handy for larger branches.
