Transatlantic is thrilled to announce that Nicole Winstanley, President and Publisher of Simon & Schuster Canada, has acquired, in a pre-empt, North American rights to Psychotherapist Kate Robson’s SOMETHING TO HOLD ONTO, an uplifting collection of literary metaphors, images, and imaginings to help anyone facing a difficult time or decision, informed by the author’s experience as a psychotherapist and NICU Family Support Specialist. Publication is tentatively planned for Spring 2026 with an introduction by Academy Award-winner Sarah Polley! 

The deal was arranged by Carolyn Forde at Transatlantic Agency.

Kate Robson is a Registered Psychotherapist in Toronto, Ontario. Inspired by her own experiences with her children in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, she worked with babies, parents, and families for more than 12 years as a NICU Family Support Specialist. She’s traveled all over the world educating parents and clinicians about family centered care and trauma informed care practices. Her workshops focus on cultivating attachment in relationships and creating emotion-friendly homes and workplaces. 

In her private practice she supports individuals and couples experiencing infertility, high risk pregnancies, NICU hospitalizations, and bereavement. Kate manages Canada’s largest support community for NICU families and runs a weekly support group for parents and caregivers. She has degrees from McGill University and OISE/UT, completed her psychotherapy training at the Toronto Institute for Relational Psychotherapy, and has also studied modalities such as ACT, Internal Family Systems, EMDR, PACT and Somatic Embodiment. 

Congratulations Kate!
