The Early Years and Prevention programme comprises a multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals, some with a background in psychoanalytic child psychotherapy, counselling, clinical and educational psychology.
At Anna Freud, we have specialisms in parent-infant psychotherapy, video-based treatments, therapy for parents, carers and toddlers (in groups and individually) as well as other mentalization-based approaches. We are also developing and delivering specialised support for fathers in the perinatal period.
Other services available include:
Training to individuals and teams;
Packages of individual and family assessment or therapy with babies, toddlers and their parents or carers; including those who have recently been adopted or in the process of adoption;
Consultation to networks and organisations working in the early years;
Supervision to teams and organisations working in the early years.
