Kylie Aekins

Kylie is a Mum to two amazing neurodiverse kids. Her family lives the day to day journey of what a disability diagnosis means. Her youngest child is also Autistic. Her children have taught her and husband Josh new and wonderful perspectives they didn’t realise they needed. On their weekends they enjoy going on adventures together, exploring, especially in nature and the bush or along the coastline.

Kylie is a peer worker and passionate about family centred service, mentoring and supporting families with evidence based, child led, strengths based approaches. She also focuses on mindfulness, emotion coaching and having a growth mindset.

She is an experienced facilitator of the Now & Next program. She enjoys learning from all the other parents who join these empowering groups as well as her innovative team she works with. Every person is such a rich resource of knowledge and lived experience to her. Kylie also facilitates other workshops at Plumtree and will be facilitating the Emotion Coaching program.
