Upgrade your skill set and learn important tools to respond confidently and compassionately to the growing epidemic of eco-anxiety and other symptoms related to the climate crisis and disconnection from Nature.
Recent statistics show that globally up to 80% of the population suffers from mental health symptoms related to the climate crisis.
A 2021 study by The Lancet on the effects of eco-anxiety and climate fear on children and young adults (aged 16-25) found that 59% were extremely worried and 84% were at least moderately worried.
In this 14-week program, I will help you to learn effective tools and strategies to reduce these symptoms and help the adults and children you work with become empowered, hopeful and proactive.
A new WHO policy brief states that Climate Change poses a serious risk to mental health and is urging for climate considerations to be included into mental health programs.
The new WHO document recommends 5 important approaches for governments to address the mental health impacts of climate change:
Are you ready to take action in response to this urgent need for change?
If you have answered “YES” to some of these questions and you are a mental health professional who wants to take action in a world that is in desperate need of change and hope, then this training is what you have been looking for.
I educate and support mental health professionals who are passionate about their work with adults and children, and who put in relentless effort to find solutions for the new and emerging challenges of our times.
I am a professional training provider with a background in Education and Nature Connecting Approaches (read more here) and I am passionate about human and planetary health!!
For over 20 years I have researched and studied the relationship between Nature Connection and mental and physical health, both for personal and professional reasons as I have my own bundle of health challenges. In my studies and observations, I could see a widening gap between the growing mental health crisis and an expanding disconnect to Nature in our society. This development really grabbed my attention as it was clear to me that mental and physical health, the climate crisis and a general isolation from Nature must be inseparably connected. In my further studies in Eco Psychology and Ecotherapy the interrelatedness became much clearer, and I knew that there was a missing piece in the way we approach both human and planetary health.
Initially, I concentrated my work on education and parenting and I published my international multi-award-winning book “Roots and Wings – Childhood needs a Revolution” in 2018 followed by a collection of Mindful Games in 2019.
Since then, I have been a speaker on multiple global conferences and summits in the areas of mindfulness and nature/climate education and I was published on various platforms such as A Lust for Life, Project Happiness, The Irish Independent or The Natural Parent Magazine.
I am also a climate ambassador with the Climate Ambassador Programme as I can only be authentic if I “put my money where my mouth is”! I truly believe that taking climate action is a powerful antidote to eco-anxiety.
I knew though that education is just one side of the coin and that it’s crucial to review our approach to mental health in clinical settings also. We need to realise that eco-related mental health issues need new strategies and tools in order to meet them effectively and help people move forward with hope and optimism.
I have applied my experience of 20+ years in Education and Nature Connecting Approaches to create this 14-week program in which I want to teach you how to apply these tools in your practice.
Welcome to a transformational 14-week program where you will learn creative, flexible and innovative tools that will help you and the people you work with navigate these challenging times with more ease, hope and action.
I am so excited to share this new modality with you and I can’t wait to introduce you to a wide range of strategies and skills to draw from when responding to symptoms such as climate fear and eco anxiety.
Imagine feeling confident and empowered in responding to symptoms of eco-anxiety, climate fear or other challenges created by a disconnect to Nature. In this training you will learn creative, flexible and empowering strategies to help clients relate to these modern-day challenges and find the way back to their roots, both in Nature and within themselves.
