A podcast on self-care in the climate crisis, by clinical psychologist Bronwyn Gresham.

To grow the felt knowing that we really are all in this together (and better for it). I’ve still got my L Plates on…so be kind! And if you are feeling generous, send me some feedback so I can grow too. If you have a story you would like to share around your personal journey to taking action on climate change, the challenges you faced and how you are overcoming them, send me an email, I would
