    Introduction

    I am Györgyné Finta (Réka), pro-environmental psychologist and adult individual psychology counselor (in progress). I have been working at the CEU Department of Cognitive Science in Budapest since 2011 and in Vienna since 2023. The years spent in Higher Education gave me insights into the personal and work challenges of young adults like finding their path, uncertainty with their professional life, losing focus, overload, integration difficulties, isolation, homesick, culture shock or learning difficulties, anxiety, stress, monotony-tolerance. 

    I give mental well-being guidance and elaborate these difficulties, that are naturally part of our lives, mostly with nature-therapy and nature-based therapy techniques and by ecopsychological approaches. During the psychological process the symbols and metaphors given by nature can reduce the client’s resistance to functional changes and help to see the problems from different perspectives. This way we can enrich ourselves with proposals to new solutions.
