The Place2Be provides one-to-one and group counselling sessions, plus a lunchtime drop-in service inside schools. The charity also supports parents, carers and school staff members with dedicated counselling and training. By giving children the chance to explore their problems through talking, creative work and play, we enable them to cope now and to make better-informed decisions about their lives. A child's formative years have a huge impact on their long-term development. That's why we concentrate on early intervention, helping prevent the downward spiral which can start in childhood and build momentum through adolescence.
