Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community


Place2Be is a children’s mental health charity with over 25 years’ experience working with pupils, families and staff in UK schools. We provide support through one-to-one and group counselling using tried and tested methods backed by research. We support young people’s emotional development by offering them a safe space where they can express their feelings though talking, creative work and therapeutic play. This service is set up as follows:

Place2Be, a dedicated 45 minute weekly counselling service (access is assessed/prioritised by select staff teams).

Place2Talk, a lunch time drop in service, by appointment for 15 minutes to speak to a qualified therapist (open to all).

COVID-19 NOTICE: Place 2 Talk sessions will be delivered via phone or video call during lockdown, please contact the school if you do not wish your child to participate in Place2Talk remotely.

Place2Think, a staff support service, where the focus is the students which in turn helps the whole school to thrive.

The service runs Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Oasis Academy South Bank in the Undercroft, and is available on Tuesday afternoons for Oasis 6th Form students. 

Referrals for young people can be self-made or via pastoral teams or Safeguarding staff members.
