Hello, my name is Jason, and I am a Research Psychologist.

I specialise in Psychology, SPSS, JASP, research methods, statistics and general study skills.

A little about me

Prior to my return to education, I had a long and successful career in IT. I was an IT/IS manager for a very large market research company (Network Research and Marketing Limited) in London as well as Director of Operations for PC Solutions. During this time, I worked on high-level projects for a diverse set of clients including the National Library of Wales, the Thompson Group, House of Lords, Microsoft, Intel, and Volvo amongst others.

I returned to university to undertake a BSc in Counselling Studies and Psychology (BPS approved). Leaving with a First Class (Hons) degree, I then achieved a distinction in Research Methods in Psychology (MSc), and as of October 2019 I am working towards a PhD in “Detection and Prevention of Online Child Sexual Abuse: Understanding children’s vulnerabilities and strengths”, researching my first book on “Parametric and non-parametric tests by hand” as well as providing consulting services in relation to protecting children from being groomed online.

Post degree, I worked within the charity sector for Wales’s primary mental health charity Hafal, working on a stakeholder-inspired, National Lottery-funded project advising the current Welsh Government administration, the NHS and organisations within the public and private sector on mental health policies in relation to psychological (talking) therapies.

Publication of “We Need to Talk (Discussion paper)” - How should the Welsh Government proceed with mental health services.


I am available for tutoring on most evenings and weekends, and I am happy to tutor both face to face and over Skype or Zoom. I also have a Whatsapp group for short queries or group bookings.

Tutoring Experience

I have tutored numerous students in Counselling principles, Psychology and Research Methods/Statistics with considerable success, particularly in getting undergraduate students through their dissertations.

I have also developed and delivered a mental health advocacy training course to, Welsh Government, NHS, Carers, and large organisations such as DVLA.

As well as, developed a professional training course – Introducing people with serious and enduring mental illness to professional counsellors working within the private sector.

Experience in: SPSS, Research Methods, NVivo, Qualitative, Quantitative, Psychology, Non-Parametric, Parametric, Dissertation, Assignments, Literature review, Counselling.

Tutoring Approach

My main approach is to encourage the student to construct their own understanding of the subject by breaking that subject down into small bite-size chunks, which, through the use of a mindmap the student then fits together like a jigsaw to construct his/her own understanding/picture.
