Supporting your thinking and wellbeing in relation to climate change
Coaching conversations will help you to access your resourcefulness, your choices and power, your hope and resolve.
What we are experiencing in our environment, with climate change and diminishing biodiversity can feel overwhelming at times. It can provoke feelings such as anger, anxiety and grief.
Many of us are already making changes in the way we buy our food and household products, manage our gardens and waste, use water and fuel and more.
These changes might feel small but, together, they can create a tipping point. We can magnify these changes too, in conversations and activities at home, with our work colleagues, and in our wider communities.
Exploring the associated emotions, what else we could do, and how we can look after our wellbeing whilst doing so, are topics that one-to-one and group coaching can support you with.
Coaching provides a safe and open space that can help you to acknowledge, normalise and process your emotions, and access your resourcefulness, your choices and power, your hope and resolve.
We may not be able to reverse all of the impact that humanity has had on our environment and on our planet, but change is possible, and nature is beautifully designed to change and evolve too.
“Elisabeth’s coaching sessions and the use of activities and questions have helped me adapt to the challenges of a new role by giving me new ways of thinking about problems and decisions.
Most importantly, gaining insight on some of my beliefs – which turned out to be impossible to live up to – is helping me to be more realistic about what I do and focus on the things that matter to me.”
“I found the overview that Elisabeth presented for my local coaches’ group very interesting and thought provoking. It is an area that I am interested in but feel I could invest more and the session made me think about how committed I actually am.
I really liked the Flynn model and can see how I would use this more widely.
Thanks again for such an interesting session.”

“The Climate Coaching sessions with Elisabeth were a fascinating journey in an area I thought I knew well.
I discovered many strengths and identified more areas for development. I am clearer about the need to take action so that I am more aligned with my core values.
I feel more motivated to have a positive impact on nature and the environment both in my personal and professional lives.“
“The sessions with Elisabeth have really helped me to reflect on my current and future activity regarding the climate crisis. Elisabeth listens very well, picking up on unspoken cues too, and asks pertinent questions which assist in developing my thinking and planning.
I have been impressed by the range of skills and tools Elisabeth has to offer. Some of her creative approaches have enabled me to gain a surprising, fresh perspective on the question in hand.
I have no hesitation in recommending Elisabeth’s climate coaching to others.”
“My coaching session in nature with Elisabeth was both enjoyable & illuminating, providing me with insights that I am eager to try out whenever opportunities present themselves.
Even on my way home from the session, I felt more confident about the issue we had focused on & consequently spent most of my bus journey discussing the climate crisis with the stranger sitting next to me.
Elisabeth’s coaching definitely had a freeing effect!”
“Thank you for sharing your story and stimulating some insightful, reflective sessions this evening Elisabeth. I found the Flynn model [being vs doing] a really useful way of framing the Co-coaching and as was shared in the group discussion, in a short time it enabled the person being coached to move from a sense of feeling ‘crushed’ to identifying positive action and a sense of ‘hopefulness’.”
