Healing Words Therapy

Workshops for victims of trauma, displacement, mental health issues, domestic violence, child sexual abuse and workshops for workers in the human services industry.

Healing Words Therapy workshops are Creative Writing for Healing programs facilitated for the purpose of bringing about a cathartic release, healing and sometimes closure for the participants. It can be done in any language as the writing is never read out loud unless someone wishes to share.

The workshop can be provided in a group setting of up to 20 people per session or on a one-on-one setting.
