Mim Kempson is a writer, narrative therapist and digital storyteller.
Melbourne-based narrative practitioner Mim Kempson has lived and worked in Perth, Sydney and Montreal. With a long-standing love for storytelling, Mim began her career as a portraiture photographer, documentary filmmaker and graphic designer.
Later, discovering that her preferred medium was words over pictures, Mim moved into journalism and communications. She has worked at RMIT, the United Nations Global Compact - Cities Programme and News Corp. Her work has been published locally and internationally.
Mim now practices as a freelance writer and Narrative Therapist specialising in hosting conversations that spark positive and lasting change in people’s personal and professional lives. She specialises in asking questions that help diminish the power that social expectations, body image ideals, gender norms and other pressuring narratives have on people’s lives.
Mim enjoys writing about her personal experiences competing in body building, identifying as queer, living with a deformity and chronic illness, and confronting social expectations around health, gender and age.
She is available for private or group narrative therapy sessions; workshop facilitation; writing commissions and public speaking.
