Specialist dog training - Service Dog for anxiety for young person

Hello
I came across a post about this on Mumsnet and would like to add my own request. One of my children, age 18, requested a Service Dog from Service Dogs Europe to help with panic attacks and anxiety. The puppy arrived ( He's good natured and toilet trained ) but Service Dogs Europe have closed, so additional training and accreditation as a Service Dog are no longer available. Other Service Dog trainers in the UK do not train for this type of condition ( although the US does ). There is a need for a training service in the UK for dogs to help this type of condition - perhaps using the US model ? Perhaps there is a dog trainer out there who could set this up ? Assistance Dogs UK could advise on accreditation.
