About me

Screen%20shot%202012-10-11%20at%2012.09.I understand that visiting a therapist for the first time can be really nerve-wracking. When you come to meet me here at The Clearing, I will do my best to make you feel as relaxed as possible.

Although my career started with a medical degree nearly twenty years ago, my counselling experience has taught me to be less scientific. we humans are complex & no two people are the same. I will make it my priority to get to know you as the unique individual that you are, so that I can support you to find your way to whatever it is you are seeking; be that happiness, peace of mind, or to overcome certain obstacles that may be holding you back.

I’m looking forward to working with you. Take care & I’ll see you soon.

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

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
