Climate Anxiety & Ways To Cope in an Ecological Crisis
Play • 45 min

Eco-anxiety, climate fear or climate grief are common terms used to define how as humans, many of us are responding to the ecological crisis. 

It is well documented that climate change is having a negative effect on our health and mental well-being. It is important to recognise how we are feeling about the future of our planet and normalise these feelings. 

Today, I’m welcoming climate therapists, Andrew Bryant and Alexandra Woollacott to the podcast. Andrew is a clinical social worker, psychotherapist and co-director of North Seattle Therapy and Counselling and Alexandra originally from Australia is a practising psychotherapist and training psychoanalyst based in Seattle.

Andrew and Alexandra bring so much value in today’s episode on their experiences in the climate change space. They offer solid strategies on ways to cope if you are feeling overwhelmed or discouraged. We look at ways to be creative with small daily behaviours that are good for the planet and yourself and of course, who to reach out to if you need support. 

We are all part of an environment that needs protecting and we can start from within. I trust today’s episode will bring you comfort, calm and above all - hope. 

You can further explore resources on this topic through Andrew's website Climate and Mind or contact him through North Seattle Therapy & Counselling. 

Alexandra can be contacted through her therapy practice.
