Behaviour Intervention Service
Annie’s behaviour intervention service is designed to help you feel confident about how you parent and to help you put an end to challenging behaviours in your home. Having Annie to guide you and show you how to implement a plan made especially for you can mean a huge positive change for you and your family. If you want to hear firsthand from my clients about how much difference getting parenting help from me has made in their lives, click here and watch my testimonial video (full screen is best).
Working with Annie has given hundreds of parents and children a new lease on life and shown them a way of being parents that has made them and their children far happier. Letting Annie help you is an investment in your health, your happiness, and your future.
Because Annie offers both a general parenting support service and a behaviour intervention service, it can be tough to know which service would be most helpful. As a result, Annie has written a special article to help you titled, “When to Seek Behaviour Intervention.“
So if you’re dealing with challenging behaviours, relax; you’ve come to the right place. Whether your child is having multiple temper tantrums, you can’t get them to sleep, they won’t eat normally, or they simply won’t listen, Annie can provide you with peace of mind in a convenient and confidential manner.
As such, Annie’s Behaviour Intervention Service is an online service that is highly personalized to meet the exact needs of each family. See what other clients of Annie have had to say about how she has changed their lives for the better.

Behaviour Intervention Service: Frequently Asked Questions.
Annie’s behaviour intervention services are available through Skype, allowing her to meet you in your home no matter where in the world you are. The first part of the intervention is an interview and consultation with you (the parent(s) or caregiver of the child). This interview and consultation will last between 2 and 3 hours. Parents generally find this interview to be relaxing and insightful. It is a nonjudgmental, reassuring, and supportive process in which Annie first gets a big picture of what’s going on in your family and then explains how to practically stop all the difficult behaviours you’ve been dealing with.
To make sure you have everything you need, within 48 hours of the interview and consultation, Annie will send you a parenting plan that has been written especially for you. It will explain again, in detail, everything you need to know to banish your child’s challenging behaviours and bring peace and happiness to your home. The end result will leave you feeling in control of your life and much happier with your family. The solutions she will provide you with are long-term and will help you maintain lasting and positive connections with your children. Please read the testimonials or watch the video of former clients telling their stories about how much Annie’s behaviour intervention has made life so much better for everyone.

If your request for the behaviour intervention service is urgent, please let Annie know in the form below, and she will respond to you as soon as possible.

Television shows like Nanny 911 show highly trained British nannies coming into the homes of families for long periods of time (a week or more) and dealing with the issues that the families present. Annie the Nanny is often compared to the Nannies in this television program, not only for her British accent and taste for strong tea but also for her strong, warm, and integrative methods that can transform family life. However, there are some differences between a made-for-television intervention and what you may find in real life (for example, Annie doesn’t have a television camera following her around, so your intervention remains totally confidential and is not aired for the public). Annie recently wrote an article explaining the differences for those who wish they could simply call Nanny’s 911’s number.
While the nanny appears on the parenting show for extended periods of time, Annie suggests that the vast majority of clients do not require her to enter their home at all to achieve the same happy outcome. She is able to do the whole thing via online meeting. With her training and well over 30 years of experience solving parenting problems, Annie knows what to look for and what questions to ask in order to find solutions and achieve the best outcome. The answers parents give to her questions give her the insight she needs to solve issues and are a far quicker method than waiting for the children to act out and illustrate those challenges first-hand.
Occasionally, the family Annie is working with may desire Annie to come into their home to work with them over a longer period of time. The reasons for this can vary. It might be because other family support systems are unavailable to them, or they may feel overwhelmed and feel they need an extended intervention and more direct, one-on-one guidance. Having said that, for most people, Annie’s online behaviour intervention services are all they need, but Annie is happy to help you in whatever way works best. Please contact Annie directly to get more information. Here’s the link if you’d like to know more about Annie.
The full behaviour intervention service, including the 2- to 3-hour interview or consultation and personal parenting plan, costs $489.00 Canadian dollars. Annie uses Paypal, and this will allow you to pay via your credit card or bank account. If you’d like, Annie will consider a payment plan for this service. In that case, the amount is simply split into four payments with no interest charged.
My husband and I were struggling with behavioural and sleep issues we were having with our four year old son. We found out about Annie and her services over the internet. We were not able to meet Annie in person to help with our situation, so she suggested we consulted with her by Skype. We made an appointment to do our Skype session and Annie was very flexible at accommodating our schedule.
Our Skype session was very successful and easy! Over Skype Annie spent a lot of time discussing our situation and our current routines and forms of discipline we used with our child. She spent a lot of time with us getting all the information. She then discussed her advice for how to remedy our problem areas. What was great was that Annie took notes of the session for us, so that we could concentrate on the discussion. After the Skype session Annie promptly sent us her notes from the session and comprehensive notes of what we needed to do to correct the behavioural issues we were havi(...)
On behalf of my family and I, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Annie the Nanny. Annie has been a great help in providing us with methods to handle our two boys (aged 4 & 6) and the various issues that have come up over the years.
We have taken a group class as well as private consultations with Annie and always learn many things from her. Parenting is stressful and there are so many parenting books and teachers and friends that want to give you advice, it's hard to know who to follow. My suggestion is discard the others and listen to Annie the Nanny.
Our family, friends and teachers suggested to us that we may have a “Highly Sensitive Child.” However, we listened to Annie and decided against having our child diagnosed as too often people are quick to diagnose what can often be normal kid behaviours. After taking Annie’s advice and implementing her strategies, our oldest son is now doing very well in school and we have none of the concerns that were a problem (...)
We followed your plan and have seen amazing results. We are living in a much happier household and we can’t thank you enough for your help and expertise! We have had several people notice the change and we don’t shy away from passing your name on to friends and family. Thank you again so much for all of your help. It has truly changed my relationship with my son and I believe has made me a better parent. I do not have feelings of hopelessness as a parent anymore!
I just wanted to thank you so much for all your help! My life now has peace & cooperation with my little pot with ears. Supper time is peaceful, no more arguments. We try new foods. I have stopped asking so many silly questions & just let W know what we're going to do and how much fun it's going to be. I am enjoying my little fellow's company all the time now, and so is everyone else. He takes pride in helping and sometimes asks for extra jobs. You gave me a way of dealing and a different way of looking at how kids tick that has helped immensely. Thank you. You've given us order and peace in our
When my son was behaving poorly and wreaking havoc I found Annie The Nanny! Not only did she help me to realize that it's me but she was gentle in her direction, firm in her teaching. Today, I'm a much more confident mom and my son's Halo is shining again.
Thanks Annie the Nanny for being there and giving me the confidence I needed... I'm sure as the stages progress I'll be calling on you again.
You are indeed knowledgeable, kind and caring!
As a family of 6, there was little sanity in our house. With our 3 youngest children running the show, very little discipline, potty issues, eating issues, sleep issues we had come to the end of our ropes. I decided it was time to make a change. I did a little research and came across Annie.
I made the call and left a message. She immediately called me back. I was comforted by her voice and even in the first conversation; she was helping me see the light.
A few days later we had our phone consultation. It lasted nearly 3 hours. We talked about every issue we had with the children. Even down to the littlest problems. I didn’t feel silly or intimidated in the slightest. She made me feel that what we were going through was normal and a lot of other parents go thru it as well.
Her Notes were to follow via email. They were like reading a book from a bookstore about parenting, only it was about my family. Everything we talked about was clearly written out. All of the actions and reac(...)
Before meeting Annie, life at home was chaotic and unhappy. Since our meeting, we learned where we were going off track and what needed to change. If you can stick it out through the initial tantrums when you don't cave in, the results are immediate. One night being firm at dinner has turned into children that run to the table when they are called. One monumental meltdown that went completely ignored has resulted in a children that are generally happier people. We've also added purpose to our kids lives that we didn't even know was missing. Doing jobs around the house before play time isn't only helpful, its proven to be essential to their happiness which was a big win for everyone. Best of all my husband and I are finally on the same page with parenting. No more debates. I'm just so glad I did this before it was too late. Thanks Annie.
Annie the Nanny really helped me with a couple of problems I was having with my son. The advice she gave me fixed a lot of things. He now goes to bed a lot better, eats better, and I've learned giving him more attention really helps his behavior. I would recommend her to anyone!"
When Annie the Nanny came into our lives, my son (who is 3yrs old) and I were at complete odds. He would hit, kick, yell and scream at me and getting him to sit in the time out was not easy. Bedtime was also another battle that I was usually not up for to say the least. Annie was able to guide me in how to change my behavior and reactions to be more positive and consistent which helped my son to change his. With my husband gone for days to weeks at a time and my son trying to deal with his feelings I know that if I had not called Annie for help life would still be a constant battle. Thanks Annie for giving me my happy loving little boy back!!! Not to mention my sanity!
I still remember the call from my wife one weekday afternoon. “Honey” she says, I’d like to invite over a lady who specializes in working with families who have small out of control monsters. She is coming by tonight so don’t be late!” And that’s how the biggest change in our parenting methods, and the vast improvements in our home began. Of course, I did not believe her when she said she went by the handle of “Annie the Nanny”. When she insisted, I now wanted to meet her purely out of curiosity. It did not take me or my wife long to fully appreciate the depth of her experience, passion for children, and complete understanding of the challenges we face as working parents. It was also comforting to know, whether true or not, that we did not have nearly as big a problem on our hands with the twins as we thought we did.
From the first questions she asked, to her well defined systematic approach to giving us the tools we needed, Annie delivered every bit of what she committed t(...)
We have only one child whom we love dearly and have spoiled mercilessly. I love giving gifts and have given her so many things under the guise of pleasing her, when in reality it was something that was not good for her but gave ME pleasure. She is a great kid but needed some fine tuning such as learning to appreciate the littler things in life. So we asked Annie to come to our home for a day of observation. So many times on the Nanny shows on television, people ask for help, but when the Nanny gets there, they are offended by her trying to step in and help. So if you truly want help, you must accept it and be willing to make the necessary changes, regardless of how awkward it feels, for sake of your child. We were ready for change and knew it was up to us to do it for the f our child’s well being. I thought my Husband and I were pretty much on the same page but found out we were undermining each other a fair bit, not to mention routine in our family wasn’t that routine. With some(...)
My son is a much happier boy and even things like teeth cleaning and getting dressed are a joy rather than a struggle now. Even our nanny has told us how different his behaviour is. So a big thank you to you!
Annie...You're a wonderful, calm and confident mentor, a great comfort to frazzled parents!
I just wanted to thank you so much again for your assistance. It was and is such a comfort to know that you are there to support the parents out there desperately looking for the "instruction manual" to their children that surely must have been misplaced at birth. Your advice was kind, practical, non-judgemental and very easy to implement . Our girls are now 11 months (9 adjusted) and growing every day! The increased sleep they are getting with the successful sleep training is helping their growth no doubt!
With 2 children running the show in our house and and a third on the way, we were at the end of our rope and gave Annie a call. Annie sat with us while we reviewed all of our struggles and she patiently listened and broke all of our issues down to a few simple problems. She gave us a plan and some tools. The best part of her approach is that it was simple and not complicated. We were making parenting far to complicated and putting in far to much effort with very little results. We noticed an immediate change in the household after implementing her plan and techniques and we now get to spend our energy enjoying our children as a pose to constantly fighting battles . It’s still a struggle at times and new issues pop up as the kids change but we feel as though we have the tools to not let it get out of control like it was pre-annie. We highly recommend Annie as we are grateful for her help and continued support.
I first contacted Annie when my son Omar was almost 6 months old. By that time I was in desperate need of sleep. My son's schedule was all over and I couldn't get him to sleep longer than 3 hours at night. I had read many books and tried many things but nothing seemed to work. I decided to give Annie a try. I was totally impressed to see how quickly she replied. Without knowing her, I trusted her immediately. She really knows what she is talking about and her advice works! She is so supportive and caring. It was wonderful to have an expert to go to who gave me her best. Thanks for that Annie!
We just finished a few days with Annie the Nanny. What a great experience to have someone who can guide you with techniques that work! Thanks Annie!!
