His management style and mentoring techniques encourage interaction whilst supporting people to expand their skills. Jon has worked on a broad spectrum of TV productions including body dysmorphia, drink and drug issues, sexuality and relationships, eating disorders, and self-confidence/anxiety. Working on sensitive shows like this was the drive and inspiration to retrain as a counsellor.
