Amy's story

Amy's story

Amy* was just 11 years old and in a very dark place emotionally when she first started talking to Place2Be Counsellor Priya.

Amy attended a Place2Be partner school. She was referred to one-to-one counselling with one of our mental health practitioners, Priya, who provided her with the mental health support she so urgently needed.

Five years later, Amy wrote to Priya, describing the life-changing impact that her counselling had on her.

*we used a child actor in this video to protect the identity of the young person who sent the letter.
