Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

A journey to healing from complex trauma.

Creativity, is healing for the traumatised brain ~ Lilly Hope Lucario




I have various creative interests and I have recently re-ignited my love of scrapbooking and framed layouts. Creativity, is known to be excellent for the traumatised brain. And many child abuse survivors, find outlets in creativity, which also helps inner child healing.

I mostly concentrate on layoutsΒ of my two sons, which I don’t publicly show. But, this is one I did last week, of my puppy πŸ™‚ This was the day we picked her up & she was a little bundle of cuteness, sat on my lap, shaking like a leaf. She is a much loved member of our family and we adore her. Having boys, means more masculine layouts, but now having a female puppy – means doing girlie ones πŸ™‚

Creativity, gardening, sewing, are all in my healing toolbox. An enjoyable way to be mindful, be grounded and creating lovely things.

Author: Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle. ~ Lilly Hope Lucario

  1. OMG–I’m a total scrapbooker also! Love it! This is such a beautiful layout of your puppy! I have also gotten into bible journaling and creative planners. Thank you for posting this!

  2. What a cute little puppy! ❀

    I've found creativity to be very healing for me, too, in the form of music and novel-writing. πŸ™‚

  3. Oh what a lovely puppy, so happy for you!! What kind is it?

  4. Doing art has helped me through the years. I wish my painting and photography skills hadn’t been robbed from me, but I still do other types of art. I’m now working with changing light and shadow.
