John Byrne
Programs Manager & Facilitator, Community Programs

John has been moved by the power of men’s work not least in his own life when he discovered the healing power of men’s work particularly around loss and grief. John has been working with men for over thirty years and for much of this time has worked in the Victorian Aboriginal community developing and facilitating men’s groups around the State of Victoria. His passion is seeing men tap into and discover their true selves and commit to being the best men they can be.

John has a Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Human Services.
