TLZ (The Listening Zone) young people’s counselling service is based in the East Street young people’s information shop at 20 East Street, Barking IG11 8EU . We provide individual counselling to young people aged 14-21 who live or study in Barking and Dagenham.
Young people can self refer by ‘phone, letter or by dropping into the service. We also take referrals from the full range of professionals, but always ask the young person to confirm they want to be seen. Young people can request a preference to see a female/male/black counsellor.
TLZ are also able to arrange interpreting when needed.
We also provide a "drop-in" on Thursdays 4-5pm where a young person can speak to a counsellor without having made a prior appointment.
About the drop in, it is usually Thursday but please call anytime to check the day of the drop in (24 hour answer machine message available out of office hours).
We will respond quickly to self referrals or referrals. Short term (1-4 sessions) or longer term counselling (1-12 months and occasionally longer) will then be offered according to need.
We do provide a counselling service to primary and secondary schools in the borough of Barking & Dagenham.
