ABOUT STEFFI BEDNAREK

Steffi is an internationally recognised thought leader and consultant on climate psychology, systems thinking, and trauma informed organisational change. Her work combines 20 years of experience as a highly trained psychotherapist, trauma therapist and community psychologist coupled with a training with leading systems thinkers (Fritjof Capra, Nora Bateson) and years of experience of working as a consultant with the corporate sector, government, financial services and large NGOs.

Steffi applies in depth psychological knowledge and a living systems perspective to exploring and at times potently challenging the mindset with which we approach the inter-connected problems of our time. Her work goes beyond a superficial quick-fix and brings necessary 'de-rangement' to habitual patterns of thinking, so that things can come out re-arranged.

Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, the BBC,  Ed Miliband’s “Reasons to be cheerful’ Podcast, Resurgence Magazine & the Ecologist, and numerous international publications. Steffi is co-founder and co-editor of the 'Explorations into climate Psychology' journal. Her book 'Climate, Psychology and Change' will be published by Confer in 2023.

“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

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 approaches to complex problems, but the solutions we come up with 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.
