Kate Thompson, MA, MA, CJT is a BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) senior accredited Supervisor & Counsellor and a registered psychotherapist in the state of Colorado. She works with individuals and groups in her private practice in Boulder and online. She trained in London and at The Center for Journal Therapy, Denver, Colorado.
Kate says “I grew up in the north of England, my first degree was English Literature at the University of Cambridge, UK, which partly explains why I am an existential therapist who extensively uses writing and reading with my clients.”
Now she lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains above Boulder, Colorado, where the landscape provides inspiration for her writing and a glorious setting for her practice.
Her first degree was in English Literature and she later trained as a counsellor in London. These two strands are brought together in her work with journal therapy and therapeutic writing.
