What is the cost of emotional suppression?
How and when do you make yourself vulnerable?
Co-sponsored by the Vancouver Public Library
Part-time psychotherapist and part-time musician, Aiden is a clinical counsellor with a Masters of Counselling Psychology (MCP) from Adler University, and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in psychology from University of Alberta. Born and raised in New Zealand but a former inhabitant of Toronto and Edmonton, Aiden is continually reminded of home by the beautiful mountains, ocean and lush greenery in Vancouver.
In between seeing clients at his clinic downtown, ARC: Anxiety Relief Centre, he spends his time playing the piano and producing R&B mixes to showcase up-and-coming artists. He is excited to be moderating two cafés this fall, both involving topics that frequently come up in his work as a therapist.
