Place2Be's mental health professionals use an integrative therapeutic approach backed by research that brings together different strands of therapeutic thinking to support the development of each child and young person. This model is person-centred, psychoanalytic, systemic and draws on cognitive behavioural theories.

Through their professional development programme, they train c1000 Counsellors on Placement each year to build their mental health and counselling skills and experience through practice in their partner schools. They provide a range of professional development programmes on mental health and well-being for school leaders, teachers and other trusted adults who work with children and young people, so they can help build ‘mentally healthy’ schools and communities where all children can thrive and flourish.
