I have gone through a tutorial on how to do this, and have done everything correctly. I have downloaded the Utility software and my camera even has successfully connected to my Macbook, but it won't allow me to transfer any files, or even access them (see the screensot) - it asks me to confrim connection settings on the camera which I cannot seem to do

All the EOS Launcher does is establish a line of communication between a camera and a host. The EOS Utilities are what actually perform the file transfer, and other features.
Launch the EOS Utility manually. On some computers it seems to need a jump start. The computer must be told, or in this case shown, what to do when the device is detected.

Maybe this will clarify.
If the camera is operating as the access point, you complete connection on the device connecting to the camera.
The error indicates the camera is attempting to associate itself with a device as a client, not as the host.
Watch this video and you'll see how to complete the process and the step you are missing.
The easy connect function generates an SSID name and password for you - Host Mode
The select a network aloows the camera to connect to another network - Client Mode

And you are completeing the very last step on the camera where it asks to acknowledge/allow the connection?
And, after when you click on the Wi-Fi icon (upper left) the camera's SSID has the "check mark" showing the MAC is indeed connected to the camera?
Please temporarily disable the FW on your MAC and restest. After you disable, disconnect ahd reconnect the MAC from the camera.
Configuring the application firewall in OS X v10.6 and later
Use these steps to disable the application firewall:

Yep. I have attached 2 screenshots relating to what you have asked. The thing is after I click to acknowledge the pairing on the camera, there is a menu that asked to disconnect.ext and below that it says Confirm.set, when I click confirm noting happens.
The problem I get is that when I open Utility I cannot access any of the options at all, only preferences.
Also my Mac automatically opens up 'photos' when the camera is paired, as if to export to there.
I am miffed and annoyed as I don't have a USB or card reader. I have just read about the FW so I will try that

Disable Avast <<<<< and retest
If it can't be disabled, uninstall it.
