Instructor Information

Aynsley Graham

Aynsley Graham, MA I have been working with children with behaviour challenges since I graduated from University in 2009. I hold two degrees, a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and a Graduate degree in Human Ecology, specializing in Family Ecology and Practice. I followed the “family business”, working as a Child and Youth Care Counsellor for 7 years with my father, mother and brother! In the last 3 years, I have ventured out to work in a variety of settings to learn how to collaborate with other professions, like Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists, to better meet the needs of children and their families. I am a passionate believer in community. As a mother, I foster relationships that make my family as healthy and resilient as we can be; my family, my friends, professionals, I am honest and proud of the help that I receive. This support allows me to continue to enjoy the activities that make me me, and not just mom. My wife and I greatly enjoy live music and theatre and need regular dates on Whyte Avenue to feel like humans. I kickbox and am trying to get into Yoga. I am an avid camper. I am such an avid camper; my wife and I took our son camping in May when he was 6 months old because we were insistent that our life wouldn’t change just because we had a baby. Obviously, that was a terrible decision and it was the worst trip ever. We have since figured out how to camp with a kid As a Behaviour Consultant, I can help you build a support network a that helps you be the best parent you can be. We are stronger when we are not alone.
