She also holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents.
As part of her training, Annie spent two years as a school counsellor in a primary school.

Annie is a student member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), following both bodies’ ethical guidelines and she holds an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate (formerly CRB).

Depending on what’s appropriate for the young person, she uses a combination of active listening, creative work and play therapy to help them communicate and feel understood.
