Services include:

  • sexual health advice, contraception & emergency contraception for under 25s living in any London borough (see opening times)
  • one-to-one psychotherapy (for young people age 16-24 living in Camden or Islington)
  • Systemic Integrative Treatment (BC-SIT)
  • parenting programmes for parents and carers of children and adolescents living in Camden or Islington  
  • consultation services for other professionals

Counselling and psychotherapy: Referral cap in Camden

The Counselling and Psychotherapy Service in Camden has implemented a monthly referral number cap. If, when a patient self-refers, the service has reached capacity for that month, the team can signpost patients to other services. Patients can also re-refer themselves to the service at the beginning of the following month. The purpose of this cap is to help to stabilise waiting times and avoid having a growing waiting list.
