Kate Thompson's Biography

Member Info

Sep 2011

I'm an existential counsellor, journal therapist and writer. I was born and lived in the UK until last summer when I moved to the foothills of the Rockies above Boulder, Colorado. My first degree was in English Literature at Cambridge, UK, subsequently I trained as a counsellor in London & a journal therapist in Denver. I practice online & face-to-face, and am core faculty at The Therapeutic Writing Institute.

I have co-edited 2 books on therapeutic writing with Gillie Bolton & Victoria Field and am the author of Therapeutic Journal Writing: an introduction for professionals (Jessica Kingsley Publishers 2010). I run writing workshops in Colorado and, with my friend & colleague, Mary Thompson, in California.
