Steffi Bednarek is an internationally recognised thought leader and consultant on climate psychology and systems thinking, working on the intersection between the human psyche and systems change. She helps organisations 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 already on the doorstep. The psychological aspects of climate change are not an additional extra but a central part of our ‘response-ability’ in a time of upheaval. Her work supports leaders and organisations to increase psychological resilience and to understand their complicity in compartmentalising uncomfortable truths.

Steffi works with government, corporates, financial services, higher education and NGOs to provide incubation spaces for ripened leadership and regenerative thinking. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, the BBC, TEDx Countdown, Ed Miliband’s “Reasons to be cheerful’ Podcast, Resurgence Magazine & the Ecologist, Wikipedia and numerous international journals.

Steffi Bednarek is a senior accredited psychotherapist with over 20 years of clinical experience and a specialism in community psychology and collective trauma. She brings depth psychology into her work as a consultant for the corporate sector, government ministries and international NGOs. Steffi managed large mental health services, helped to set up an award winning community psychology project in Germany, set up a national violence prevention project for the Ministry of Education in Luxembourg, worked for the Council of Europe, advised on policy and studied systems thinking with Fritjof Capra. She is a prolific writer on Climate Psychology. Her work has been translated into Russian, German and French and she currently has a book contract with an American as well as a German publisher. She is an associate of the Climate Psychology Alliance and co-founder and co-editor of the Journal “Explorations into Climate Psychology”.
