“We constantly look outside ourselves for the answers when we have all the answers… they must come from within us”
Aaron grew up in the Wimmera in Western Victoria, a region plagued by a culture of drinking. This put him on the path to poor health, substance use and ultimately, to such severe depression that he felt like he had no other escape that to take his own life. However, Aaron is not just a survivor, but someone who has learnt to thrive and he has now seen it as his calling to return to Horsham in Victoria to provide support to his community and other busy Australians with wellbeing solutions that help us manage anxiety and stay healthy in body, mind and spirit. He has truly overcome crippling anxiety and poor lifestyle behaviours to turn his weakness into his strengths. He has now written about his story and the lessons he has learnt in his new book - A Wink from A Guru, forwarded by AFL great Paul Roos.
