Meet Rosie

Rosie had to move house a couple of times in a short period because of tensions and difficulties within her family. All that uncertainty made 10-year-old Rosie feel stressed and unhappy, causing her to lash out at her mother in anger.

At primary school, Rosie became quiet and withdrawn – she was clearly really struggling but couldn’t find the words to express how she was feeling. Concerned for her wellbeing at home and at school, Rosie’s teacher referred her to Place2Be for one-to-one counselling.

During her first session, Rosie found it difficult to open up to her Place2Be counsellor. Together, they worked at building trust and bonding through drawing and games, and gradually Rosie felt safer.

Why we need your help

Children and young people in the UK have a growing need for professional mental health support.

Did you know that over 400,000 children are waiting for NHS mental health support? With so many children in need of help, your support for Place2Be has never been more important.

Thanks to your kindness, we work to support children like Rosie with the resilience and coping skills they need.

How counselling works

Place2Be provides one-to-one counselling for children and young people like Rosie. Counselling provides a safe space for a child or young person to talk about their experiences, feelings and emotions with a mental health professional.

Our qualified counsellors tailor sessions for each child’s age, needs and likes.

The impact of counselling

When Rosie first started counselling sessions, she was in a state of crisis. Her emotional wellbeing improved throughout the sessions because she felt seen and knew she could talk about her feelings.

Thanks to the generosity of people like you, as many children and young people as possible can get one-to-one sessions from Place2Be counsellors. Your kindness helps to transform young lives for the better. In 2023:

  • nearly 7,000 children had one-to-one counselling with Place2Be.
  • we reached over 300,000 children and young people in more than 500 partner schools
  • 76% of pupils with severe difficulties showed an improvement in their mental health after one-to-one counselling.
