The Anna Freud Centre are a children's charity with a longstanding and multifaceted commitment to the emotional well-being of children. The Centre was established in 1947 by Anna Freud, one of the founders of child psychoanalysis whose work has had a profound and enduring influence on theories of child development. The Centre's original purpose was twofold:

  • to help children in emotional distress
  • to train child experts and conduct research into the best ways to help children suffering mental ill-health.

Today this twofold purpose is reflected in their activities as a Centre of Practice and a Centre of Learning. As a Centre of Practice, their innovative clinical services offer treatment for distressed children and support and advice for parents. As a Centre of Learning they are dedicated to understanding children's emotional development through training mental health professionals, conducting pioneering research and advising practitioners, universities and governments around the world.

Anna Freud established the child and adolescent therapy and training institution known today as the Anna Freud Centre with four principles in mind. Firstly, she wanted therapy to be available for children in need, regardless of their family's ability to pay. Secondly, she wanted to create a training course specifically for therapeutic work with children rather than child therapy training being only an addendum to adult therapy training. Thirdly, she wanted to apply psychoanalytic knowledge and skill to fields such as education and social and legal reform. Fourthly, Anna Freud was devoted to enquiry, which was always based on careful and detailed observation: research was an integral part of the Centre's work from the beginning.
