Why work with Place2Be

We offer over 20 years' experience providing a sustainable, integrated service at the heart of the school community. Our commitment to thorough research and evaluation means we fine-tune our model to meet pupils' needs.

Mental health expertise

School staff have on-site access to trained mental health professionals who can offer expert advice and consultation.


Our school-based counselling services enable us to support pupils with emotional and behavioural problems who often miss out on receiving the help they need from statutory services. 

At the heart of the school community

Our non-stigmatised service supports children, parents, teachers and school staff with an integrated approach that ensures Place2Be becomes a trusted part of the school and the wider community.

We work closely with senior staff in schools to help them to identify their most vulnerable children, and to enable those children to get the therapeutic support that they need.
