This Artist Illustrates Her Therapy Process To Show People It Can Get Better (10 Pics)
Sacha Mardou is a British cartoonist and author of graphic novels who has been creating comics for almost half of her life. For the past year, the artist has been creating short comics exploring her therapy progress to help people realize it can get better. “I had to get comfortable with talking about uncomfortable things – my upbringing, growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness teen, my parents’ divorce, parenting my child, and the things that trigger me are just a few topics I’ve looked at,” writes Sacha.
The artist says it took her a while to get comfortable with sharing personal stories but the positive response from her readers really helped. “I’d love to share this work with others who are struggling with difficult emotions or family histories,” says Sacha.
“My message is that there is hope! Trauma and childhood adversity can be healed and transformed through therapy and self-compassion,” says the artist. Check out her illustrations in the gallery below!
