I may do it directly, only to add units definition in Therion.

Compass data are very small subset of Therion’s. .dat file of Compass needs only to add survey, team, date, declination, … and centerline at the beginning and endcenterline, endsurvey at the end.  And add data normal at beginning od data definition line and probably ignoreall at the end of data definition line.
If you are able to convert Compass to Survex, there should be no any problem to add conversion from .dat file to .th file.

If however you are working with data that was stored in Compass but originally surveying in metric, then you can use my cave converter program to convert Compass data to Survex data. Not quite Therion format, but very close and you can cut and paste the numbers from the Survex file into Therion files. This will convert the data back to metric from the imperial units saved in a Compass file.
