About us

Place2Be is a children’s mental health charity with over 25 years’ experience working with pupils, families and staff in UK schools.

We offer expert training and professional qualifications. Our mental health professionals use an integrative therapeutic approach backed by research that brings together different strands of therapeutic thinking to support the development of each child and young person. Our approach allows children and young people to express themselves in different ways through talking, creative work and play.

Counselling training and Placements

We equip people with the skills and experience they need to support children and young people. Whether you’re starting your journey to train as a child counsellor from scratch, part-way through a course or making a transition from adult counselling, take your next step with Place2Be.

Place2Be also offers Counselling Placements in schools across England, Scotland and Wales. Every year over 1,000 counsellors and therapists take up one of our Counselling Placements, providing one-to-one support to vulnerable children and young people in schools.
