Lived experience is at the heart of everything Thought Climber creates.
Thought Climber, a community interest company, was founded to provide writing journals and others resources for those facing traumatic grief. Although the After Journal is the first bereavement journal created for loss by suicide, we are currently working on a series of writing journals to support those facing other forms of traumatic grief.
We passionately believe that handwritten accounts of our personal journeys can foster a transformative difference.
Born of a personal experience with bereavement by suicide, Halani C. Foulsham discovered first hand the severely limited supply of readily available resources for navigating unknown emotional and social territory during a traumatic, life-changing event such as this.
Founded in 2016, along with the support of a small group of those with first hand experience of sudden loss and seed funding from the Reigate-Banstead Town Council, Thought Climber is an entirely not-for-profit Community Interest Company that uses creative journalling and story-sharing to help people through major life crises. Thought Climber’s over-arching goal is to foster a more meaningful conversation about life after trauma.
