We are advocates of Counselling Psychology /Psychotherapy, who see the benefits in providing professional services to our communities using sustainable and eco – therapeutic models.
The eeai believes in inviting and involving all the interested members of our communities to have a say in how we grow our services together. We also value input, feedback and membership from anybody, anywhere who has an interest or something to say in relation to the Association. We believe that this approach is holistic and effective.

– organize courses, conferences, seminars and meetings on the topic of Ecopsychology and its practical applications in therapy, education and training;
– create professional development pathways (EES Training) to facilitate the dissemination of ecopsychologically oriented activities among professionals on topics addressing the fostering of relationship and of environmental education;
– develop environmental education projects to be implemented in schools, parks, communities, and the work environment from an Ecopsychology perspective; that is involving and awakening the whole person;
