KEYNOTE SPEAKING

Steffi regularly speaks for global businesses, including those who are on the Carbon Disclosure Project A list, about the psychological aspects of climate change. She is a Tedx speaker, has been featured in a BBC documentary on climate change anxiety and has been speaking at special climate change events for major global companies, such as BNY Mellon and Estee Lauder Companies.

​Climate change is so much more than an excess of CO2 in the atmosphere. Steffi's talks tell a fuller story and can include multiple aspects, depending on your interests:


  • the need to prepare for the mental health impact of living in a world where change is inevitable and where a metaphorical death of much that has been familiar is inevitable

  • insights that support resilience, allow us to tolerate anxiety and enable us to stay with uncomfortable truths without collapsing into reactivity or numbing. These are essential skills in a time of upheaval.

  • research based evidence of how climate change affects our mental health and how in turn our mental health affects the state of the world

  • the role of compartmentalisation and numbing in a response that allows individuals, companies and nations to rationally say the right things and then to act in incongruent ways

  • depth psychological perspectives of why data and statistics are not enough to bring about behaviour change

  • a psycho-social perspective on the collective culture and how a purely cognitively driven approach risks reinforcing irrational, reactive and resistant responses in pockets of society

  • the need to create frameworks of care that encourage maturity and support us to choose our caring side over impulsivity, exceptionalism and uncare

  • the role of collective trauma in our response to climate change
