Aaron has made it his mission to ensure that the amazing insights from psychology are shared as widely and responsibly as possible. For more than a decade he has been an active communicator who takes psychological findings from the clinic and the university and transforms them into useful concepts that can be applied to individuals, organisations and culture.

By breaking down the nature of basic human motivation and showing how technologies engage with them, systems can be creatively designed to better meet the needs of their users. By applying the theories from dynamic psychology to these technologies, Aaron enables organisations and individuals to develop systems that better map to natural human psychology to allow more natural and productive online environments. 

Aaron has been an ‘agony uncle’ for many years for both CBBC and BBC Radio 1. Aaron also authored the children’s self-help book Keep Your Cool: how to deal with life’s worries and stress which is widely used in schools as well as by parents around the world.

Aaron is director of Stillpoint spaces UK, the London arm of an international organisation devoted to sharing ideas from depth psychology as broadly as possible. Stillpoint Spaces International engages in investigating how technology can be used to build communities and does this by encouraging both on and offline events across the world.

As a keynote speaker, Aaron delves into areas of psychology helping audiences to understand how it relates to content, social media, and everyday life.
