Research / Scholarly interests

Joe has an interest in taking therapy outdoors (ecotherapy) and the transpersonal, and he utilises qualitative research methodologies to better understand these perspectives. Joe takes an integrative approach to therapy, so alongside his relational, existential and phenomenological approaches, there is also a consideration of unconscious, transferential and attachment based material and processes, such as, for instance, those that relate to death anxiety.
