Aedrian Bekker

Director: Organisation Solutions and Business Development

Aedrian is a Chartered Clinical and Organisation Psychologist. He is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and is a member of the British Psychology Society. 


While Aedrian started his career as a clinician in the NHS, for the past 16 years he has worked with senior leaders and their teams in blue chip companies around the globe. With an expertise in human behaviour in complex organisations, he has worked in heavily regulated and customer sensitive industries such as defence, nuclear, automative, finance, telecommunications, utilities, industrial relations and of course, aviation. 


Aedrian leads a team of psychologists and consultants that have designed and delivered award winning psychological interventions that have been credited for their innovation, integrity and user engagement. In British Airways for example, this includes working with over 2000+ flight crew as well as programmes for all senior cabin crew and facilitation of joint Management and Trade Union projects. As a psychologist, he has a deep insight into the unique challenges facing a highly professional and largely remote workforce - and the organisational contexts within which they work.


Aedrian's team use traditional methods alongside emerging technologies to create scalable and effective psychological solutions.

In response to the wake of the German Wings incident and to meet future EASA and FAA directives, the Centre for Aviation Psychology was established in 2016 to support aviation professionals (e.g. pilots, airlines, flight schools, cabin crew, air traffic controllers and AMEs) as they adapt to this new and emerging landscape. 


We know that there are problems to be solved by those in Aviation - and we know that these issues are incredibly sensitive. We believe they require practical delivery with professional expertise. Our teams provide the reassurance you need on both fronts  - we have years of clinical expertise and a track record of delivering large scale, organisation wide interventions.


We provide effective and compliant solutions for assessing, treating and promoting positive mental health in Aviation.
