Today I’m joined by psychologist and founder of The Mindful Collective, Amy Kate Isaacs. During her Master’s Program, Amy experienced extreme stress and felt like she was drowning under her workload and study load. So she did what any good practitioner would, and put some of the evidence-based stress-busting techniques she learned to the test.  

Her compassionate approach to wellbeing weaves together psychological principles with mindfulness and lifestyle changes to help everyone she comes into contact with thrive and flourish with self-awareness, resilience, and a toolbox of healthy coping strategies.

Today Amy and I are discussing the topic of climate anxiety and coping in a crisis. The Australian bushfires have hit our communities hard, and many of us are left wondering what to do and how to cope whether we are personally affected or not. In this episode we discuss:

  • What is climate anxiety
  • The psychological impact of bushfires and how long this will likely last
  • The difference between Psychological and Mental Health First Aid - in which situations are each relevant and why we need to upskill
  • How to deal with feelings of helplessness and loss after a crisis
  • Coping with loss after a crisis
  • How to best look after our own mental health while also looking after the environment
