Trauma can be a debilitating and overwhelming experience, leaving individuals feeling lost, disconnected and powerless. However, creativity can be a powerful tool in the healing process. At Fierce Futures CIC, we understand the importance of self-expression and self-discovery in the journey towards healing and empowerment. Through creativity, individuals can gain a sense of control, shift their focus from the past to the present and future, and learn to understand and accept themselves.
