About me

logo.jpegAt The Clearing, I will create a safe space where you can freely share your thoughts & feelings. When things feel too difficult or overwhelming, the opportunity to share & reflect upon our emotions in a supportive & caring setting can be of an enormous benefit to our mind, body & soul

I, myself, have spent many years exploring my emotions through therapy. Although I found it difficult at times, I can see that each step that I took brought me to a better place & to a far greater understanding of who I am & where I want to be in my life

I look forward to accompanying you on your personal journey of self-discovery.

I understand how difficult it can be to choose the right therapy service for you & given how busy life is, you may not have the time to read through everybody's website. So here are the top 7 things that I think you may want to know about The Clearing to help you to decide if we're the right fit for you.


1.All of our therapists are fully qualified & experienced

2. Your first session with us is half price & introductory offers are available for students, trainee therapists & over 65s

3. We offer evening & Saturday appointments to fit around your schedule
Our last appointment of the day is usually at around 8 pm


4. Once you get in touch, we can usually book you in for your first session within a few days

5. We're really easy to get to
We're based in the quiet, leafy suburb of Jesmond. If you're coming to us by car, we have lots of free on street parking. If you're coming to us by public transport, we are a few minutes walk from the nearest bus stop & metro station

6. Our service is very discreet
There are no signs outside & we don't have a waiting area, so you don't need to worry about anyone knowing why you're at our door, or bumping into people once you're in the building. The only person you'll see is your therapist


7. Our building is wheelchair accessible

At The Clearing, we provide a safe, cost-effective & confidential space in which you can explore whatever is troubling you.
