We understand how daunting it can be to come to therapy for the first time. Here’s some information about us that we hope will help put your worries to rest.

Our team of friendly counsellors are fully qualified, experienced, registered with a professional regulatory body & insured. They will make it their priority to put you at ease & will offer you impartial guidance on the best way forward. You can be sure that when you choose The Clearing you will always be in good hands.

Successful therapy hinges on a good relationship between you & your counsellor & this is always our focus. We will work with you as a person, not a diagnosis, getting to know you & your story & shaping your therapy accordingly.
