About The Role

Together we can change children’s lives. At Place2Be, we believe every child should have easy access to mental health support whenever they need it. We create a safe place in schools where children and young people can open up without pressure or stigma, allowing our highly skilled and diverse counsellors to reach children, young people and their families who need us.

A qualified therapist/ counsellor, you’ve been working in the profession for at least a year, and now it’s time to take the next step.  As a Place2Be Supervising Counsellor your main focus is assessment and formulation of referrals and supporting and overseeing the work of the Counsellors on Placement enabling them to deliver interventions across all year groups and achieve the best outcomes for the young people we support. You’ll still deliver some therapeutic work with children yourself, including some group/whole class work, but ultimately, you’ll be shaping clinical delivery of services within the school you operate.

As part of a huge community of practitioners across the United Kingdom, you’ll have opportunities to share best practice and develop clinical thinking, knowledge and learning. You’ll have access to an enormous range of training and development and a pathway to develop and grow your career.

For a career with purpose, this is your place.
