Aidan believes that humans have largely become disconnected from nature and through this we have become disconnected from ourselves.
With considerable experience in supporting a broad range of men in their life challenges; with professional roles as a counsellor, support worker, suicide and crisis supporter and outback tour guide; Aidan has a broad therapeutic skillset.
He interweaves nature-based activity and therapeutic conversation; with nature providing the space and the energy for healing and growth.
“My core values are awareness, authenticity and aliveness. I believe I have a gentle, caring nature and am able to hold a safe masculine space”
Holding a Diploma of Counselling from the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors and currently undertaking in-depth experiential study in Compassionate Inquiry, a graduate-level trauma-informed psychotherapeutic approach created by Dr. Gabor Mate`, Aidan is committed to assisting his clients to develop key insights for healing and growth.
“Outside of his work, I’m interested in rewilding myself, sitting in men’s circles, ecstatic dance, spiritual practice and conscious parenting”
Aidan’s sees disconnection from nature, loneliness and isolation as major issues in our mental and physical health. His goal is to establish a thriving Perth community group; where people living with disability can connect and build friendships together in nature.
