A one day program for men who have survived domestic or intimate partner violence in any type of relationship and would like to participate in an educational peer support program that provides a safe men only space for discussion and personal growth.

MOVING FORWARD provides participants with practical life tools and opportunities for personal development through a range of in-group activities. This program is guided by humanist principles of showing compassion and understanding.

He is a social work trained health educator, a Certified Workplace Trainer and an Affiliated Member of the Australian Association of Buddhist Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
