Tony Stubley TV Director: Made a Commercial Using Dr Jan and said:
It is very rare for a shoot to go so well and I put that down more to your professionalism than anything else. It’s a pleasure working with you and I hope we have many occasions in the future to work together again.
Adam, Print Journalist said:
I am doing a story and needed some quotes from a psychologist who has insight and a sense of humour – naturally I thought of you!
I think it’s because your opinions sound definite, aren’t heavily qualified and are put in “everyday” language.
Jeremy, Media Student said:
As for The Glasshouse, it was excellent. You rocked!
Seriously, for a non-comedian, you could hardly have done a better job.
