CAMHS, TLZ the listening zone

TLZ , The listening zone, is the young people’s counselling and psychotherapy service providing individual counselling and psychotherapy to young people aged 14 to 21 who live or study in Barking and Dagenham.

We take referrals from the full range of professionals, but always ask the young person to confirm they want to be seen. Young people can also self refer by phone or letter.

Young people can drop in to see the service prior to making a referral – to do this please call the service to arrange at time to drop in.

Young people can request a preference to see a female/male, black/Asian counsellor. We are also LGBT friendly.

Short term or longer term counselling/psychotherapy will then be offered according to need. We also provide a counselling service to some primary and secondary schools in Barking and Dagenham.
