Joanne Hanrahan

Joanne Hanrahan is a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist working in private practice in Ireland. She completed her psychotherapy training and MSc in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy with Turning Point Institute and Dublin City University (DCU). Living by the sea on Ireland's 'Wild Atlantic Way', Joanne's awareness of the therapeutic value of nature in terms of her own psychological process inspired her choice of research topic. Her MSc thesis explores the role nature can play in psychotherapy and her qualitative research is based on interviews with nine Irish psychotherapists. Joanne now integrates nature into her practice in various ways including engaging in outdoor sessions. She has presented to psychotherapists on this topic, and her seminar at the Irish Association of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy (IAHIP) 2016 conference was well received. Prior to embarking on her private psychotherapy practice Joanne worked in second level Guidance and Counselling. She trained in Jungian Sand Therapy and was highly involved in adolescent counselling and student support in schools for almost 20 years. Joanne Hanrahan
