Who we are

Support from the comfort of your safe space

The Clearing offers a range of talking therapies to individuals, couples & organisations across the UK.

We are a friendly team of qualified & experienced counsellors, psychotherapists & psychologists here to support you through the difficult times with our online counselling & psychotherapy services.

All of our therapists are integrative practitioners, which means they are able to draw from a number of approaches to create a unique therapy to meet your needs.

Our goal is to help you to heal the wounds from your past & overcome any issues you are facing in the present, so you can move forward with the confidence that you can handle whatever challenges life may throw your way in the future.

We make it simple & straightforward

We place our clients at the centre of everything that we do. We aim to make your experience with us as comfortable, convenient & stress free as is possible.

Our therapists offer flexible appointment times 7 days a week, with late evening appointments available to fit around your busy life.

Arranging, paying for & managing your sessions with us is a breeze with our convenient online booking system, Kiku.

With your free Kiku account you can view your upcoming appointments at a glance, pay for your next session with the click of a button, confidentially message your therapist & make changes to arrangements with ease.

Always private & confidential

Your privacy is of utmost importance to us.

Our therapists use end to end encrypted video calling software & the Kiku system is both encrypted & password & 2FA protected.

Any payments made by card will show up on your statement under our umbrella company’s name – so if you would prefer that no one else knows that you’re coming for therapy, we’ve got that covered.
