Joanne has previously been invited as a Keynote speaker to numerous national and international conferences and training events. Her speaking engagements include notable appearances at CONFER UK ‘Psychotherapy and the Natural World’ conference in 2016, and similar CONFER conferences held in Ireland in 2018 and 2019, along with her research presentation at the IAHIP conference in 2016.
