About Me - Her Travel Therapy

About Me

Me with dogMy name is Kate and I am a 22 year old blogger from Adelaide, Australia. I have a background in international development and Spanish language, which are two of my great loves. I also have a keen interest in ethical travel, mental illness awareness, preventing sexual violence against women, and dogs!

I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety when I was 19 years old but have been living with both since I was around 15. I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in late 2016 and am still trying to come to grips with this little-known and highly stigmatised disorder.

My aim is to draw awareness to mental illness and how it affects people holistically. This extends to travel, with few mainstream internet resources showing travellers with chronic illnesses that they too can travel both alone and for extended periods of time.
