About us

Led by Dr Rhian J Lewis (D. Couns. Psy., C. Psychol.), an experienced Counselling Psychologist, The Clearing is a vibrant team of hand picked, highly skilled counsellors, psychotherapists & psychologists.

Counselling is what we specialise in here & we have put a lot of thought into creating an environment that really promotes the therapeutic process.

If you are looking for counselling, psychotherapy, or professional supervision then you are in the right place. Even if all you are looking for is a little emotional support & advice, we are here to help.

We know 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. Here are the top 7 things that we think you may want to know about The Clearing, to help you to make your mind up

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

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

If you have any special requirements at all, just let us know & we'll do everything that we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

'when you can’t see the wood for the trees. . . look to The Clearing'


At The Clearing our primary focus is to improve your emotional health, by helping you to cope with & overcome, the many challenges that life can throw at us. We will seek to form a holistic understanding of your situation, by exploring & addressing all of the influences in your life that are having a negative impact upon your emotional well being.

Coming to therapy will help you to identify what the issues are & together, we will find ways for you to improve, remove, or overcome them. In doing so, the way that you feel about yourself & your life will dramatically improve.

No matter what your situation may be, even if it seems hopeless, you’ll be surprised just how much talking openly & in complete confidence to a member of our team can help.
