He originally studied Person Centred Counselling many years ago to help people with addictions.

Jason then went on and studied at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy in Transactional Analysis, studying the work of Eric Berne and becoming a certified psychodynamic psychotherapist.

Various other approaches to understanding addiction including qualifying as an NLP practitioner and coach lead Jason to his current understanding.
