Jason Colyer
Workplace Strategy Coach, Career Coach and Counsellor


“After much deliberation, I decided to seek support and make initial contact with Jason. Even before we met, his approach on the phone put me instantly at ease and I knew it was a call I could have made sooner. The sessions followed at convenient times for us both and an open and trusting rapport quickly developed. Jason’s ability to listen, share ideas and suggest techniques started to make a difference. A new personal outlook and perception started to emerge and through continued regular discussions, self-assessment and guidance from Jason, a way forward and an understanding was clearer. What I have learnt from those sessions with Jason remain with me and I continue to use them on a daily basis.

I have no hesitation in recommending Jason and advise anyone to make that initial call and see where it goes from there…..”

“I chose Jason Colyer because his work seemed to be people and not process centred. This became very clear at our first meeting when Jason allowed me to unload a huge amount of ‘baggage’ in a safe and sympathetic environment. Over the next few weeks, we developed a counselling relationship built on honesty, openness and trust. Jason listened carefully but actively to my problems before working with me to explore options for change. He became a catalyst for increasing my self-awareness and managing my anger much more effectively. My family have seen and felt the benefit from my behaviour change and I am determined to sustain it.  I would recommend Jason to anyone who is looking for a counselling expert with a human touch”.
