But this one will' Chris Packham 'Fabulously direct and truthful, filled with energy but devoid of self-pity . . . I was impressed and enchanted. Highly recommended' Stephen Fry 'Succeeds - triumphantly - in articulating with great honesty what it is like to suffer with a mental illness, and in providing strategies for coping' Mail on Sunday When Joe Harkness suffered a breakdown in 2013, he tried all the things his doctor recommended: medication helped, counselling was enlightening, and mindfulness grounded him. But nothing came close to nature, particularly birds. How had he never noticed such beauty before? Soon, every avian encounter took him one step closer to accepting who he is. The positive change in Joe's wellbeing was so profound that he started a blog to record his experience. Three years later he has become a spokesperson for the benefits of birdwatching, spreading the word everywhere from Radio 4 to Downing Street. In this groundbreaking book filled with practical advice, Joe explains the impact that birdwatching had on his life, and invites the reader to discover these extraordinary effects for themselves. 'Succeeds - triumphantly - in articulating with great honesty what it is like to suffer with a mental illness, and in providing strategies for coping' Mail on Sunday 'Open, lucid and unpretentious . . . Harkness quietly, but very persuasively, makes the case for birdwatching (and wildlife-watching) as a counter to the stresses of modern life, and as a way of connecting with something larger than ourselves' Bird Watching Magazine 'A life-changing book' Countryman 'A heartfelt account of one man's return to wellbeing, and his love of nature shines through' Herald Scotland Joe Harkness has been writing his Bird Therapy blog for the last four years. He has written for Birdwatch magazine, The Curlew and the i newspaper, among others. Joe also speaks about his experiences and has recorded three 'tweets of the day' for BBC Radio 4. He works as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator and has worked with vulnerable groups for nine years. @birdtherapy 13062019 02 RRP including tax GB GBP 14.99 0.00 14.99 This price includes a tax element GB 30 Temporarily unavailable 12 ARGOSY BERT BKSPD GARD Y 'I can't remember the last book I read that I could say with absolute assurance would save lives.
