Expressive and creative writing is an increasingly popular therapy technique, allowing clients to explore difficult or traumatic experiences through writing.
“Many clients comment that writing therapy has been a good way of putting into words experiences and feelings that have been too sensitive to describe face-to-face. Sometimes they are later able to share their writing with significant others and found this helpful.” Susan Willows, writingtherapy.org

“Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, melancholia, the panic and fear which is inherent in a human situation.” Graham Greene
