Author and speaker
Nature connection, neurodivergence and mental health
Joe started his (now defunct) Bird Therapy blog in 2015, which led to him writing a book, with the same title. No mainstream publisher would take a gamble on it and he had to crowdfund a 5-figure sum to publish with Unbound. Support from almost 900 people, along with celebrities such as Chris Packham and Bill Bailey, meant that it was published in June 2019 in hardback and audiobook (narrated by Joe) and in paperback in April 2020. It has now been translated for 7 countries. He has written features for numerous publications, including: The Guardian, Condé Nast Traveller, BBC Wildlife Magazine, iNews, Birdwatch Magazine and Birdwatching Magazine.
Joe is currently writing an educational book titled Inside/Outside, which will be published in 2023 by Routledge. The book is a blended emotional literacy and nature connection programme for young people of secondary age.
