Why choose The Clearing?

** In such unsettling times, we know that our services are more important than ever. We are still open but have switched our full team to home working now. Online and telephone sessions are available.

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.

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. Our team of friendly counsellors are all qualified & experienced. They will make it their priority to put you at ease & will offer you guidance on the best way forward for you. You can be sure that when you come to The Clearing you will always be in good hands.

We are based in the heart of Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne. Our location is discreet, with no big signs outside or waiting area. The only person you’ll see when you come to us is your therapist. We offer late evening & weekend appointments to fit around your schedule. And when it comes to booking your half price consultation, we can usually find a convenient appointment for you within just a few days.

Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 7am & 9pm & on Saturdays between 8am & 7pm.

When you can’t see the wood for the trees… Look to The Clearing.
