About

Tokyo Kate

I am a freelance writer, creative writing teacher, and author of Tears Heal: How to listen to our children. Originally from the UK I now live in Florence, Italy.

I have a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow, and a Certificate in Creative Writing For Therapeutic Writing from Metanoia Institute. My articles have been published in The Telegraph, Daily Mail, The Week, and wellbeing magazines Breathe, Teen Breathe and Happiful.

Ever since I was a teenager I have been interested in emotional wellbeing and the therapeutic nature of writing.

Since I became a mother I trained as a Hand in Hand parenting instructor which inspired my book and have written a book for parents, Tears Heal: How to listen to our children.  Information on my parenting work can be found here. If you’d like to get in touch use the contact form below.

  1. Hi Kate, what a wonderful blog! Mental Health and creativity go hand in hand. I use basic creative writing quite a bit in my Wellness Groups at a private Psychiatric Ward – it opens things up so very nicely 🙂 To me that’s very important, as conventional psych treatments very often kill the creative spark in people. My ‘first draft’ tutor also runs a creative writing course as a recovery tool for out patients. Keep up the good work.
