ThinkWell Limited was formed in 2006 when 3 professional consultants came together to support each other and the growing need for competent professional wellness services within the working environment. The original aim of the organisation was to bring together various disciplines to enhance wellness within the everyday workplace, with an emphasis not only on being well, but also staying and remaining well.

Originally from Ireland, Jason began his training as a psychotherapist by completing a 3 year BA in Psychoanalysis and a 2 year Certificate in Humanities (philosophical studies) in his home town of Dublin. After moving to Wellington he continued his studies becoming a Certified Transactional Analyst (ITAA) – a theory based on effective communication between individuals and within groups or teams.
