Episode 61: Jason Shiers (he/him) is a certified transformative coach and psychotherapist working with eating disorders and addiction
Catherine and Francis are excited to welcome Jason Shiers, a Certified Transformative Coach & Certified Psychotherapist who has been working with addictions and mental health for over 20 years in evolving ways, to the program. After his own recovery started 25 years ago in 12 steps, he had been searching for something different, following the path to a degree in transactional analysis, a psychodynamic theory of how people work, he found he was still not happy.
After a chance encounter, Jason found the work of another transformative coach which changed his life in unrecognizable ways. He has been teaching and sharing the principals of his work with addictions ever since; and to him, it made no sense to practice any other way. Addiction no longer looked like something that needed a complex theory or diagnostic label to overcome. As a result Jason realized people can spontaneously recovery and change their lives from any mental health diagnosis, to being happy joyous and truly free. We’re grateful for his time, insights, and energy.
