As we move towards a low-carbon economy, everyone’s work will be affected by the huge changes that lie ahead. We need to develop innovative solutions to complex problems, but the solutions often operate with the same mindset that created the problem in the first place. We need new ways of seeing in order to tell new stories.


Most policies and initiatives presume that people are purely logical creatures that will respond to information and change in purely logical ways. The irrational, reactive, volatile and defended aspects of the human psyche are not taken into consideration. The psychological dimension of climate change is not a nice add-on, but a fundamental part in creating a regenerative future.

Audience Clapping

“Steffi's deep knowledge, and nuanced presentation was instrumental in the event being a huge success, leading to an increase of 43% in our sustainability ambassador membership. Much of the post event feedback specifically mentioned how the ideas that Steffi shared were the key takeaways for the audience.

Christian Hull, BNY Mellon

“Very rarely have I experienced such skilful insight, facilitation and the holding of space to enable deep thought and reflection. Steffi’s professionalism and experience is now enabling me to think different thoughts and to reconsider some approaches to both my work and my personal life. I very highly recommend her to you. I very much hope to work with her again in the future”.

Simon Brammer, Head of Cities, Ashden Trust

She is potently challenging to complicity while still being empathic, warm hearted and cooly clear”
