Welcome to The Holding Point


Jim Clancey                                                          Counselling and Psychotherapy in Somerset

Welcome to my web site. On this site you can find information about me, the type of therapy I offer, my approach to therapy, my qualifications and experience as well as practical information like costs and location.

I am an accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Highbridge, Somerset and also working from Taunton.  I have 17 years’ experience as a counsellor and I am skilled in helping adults of all ages with a wide range of personal challenges and concerns. I have worked in various services including further education, residential rehabilitation, drop in centres and Private Practice. My approach is integrative and creative drawing on my training in Humanistic Therapy, Gestalt Psychotherapy and Developmental Theories of Childhood. I can offer Counselling and Psychotherapy, and either long or short term work. I can provide a safe and respectful place where you can reflect on your process and make sense of your experience.

Introductory Session

In our initial session we can meet and discuss if I am the right therapist for you to work with. I am part of a large referral network so for whatever reason, if working with me is not the best way forward for you, I can give you details of other therapists who you could contact. While I have a lot of experience and have worked with wide range of clients, it may be that you require more specialised therapy within a specific area in which case, again, I can offer you contact details.
