A studio in London where survivors of torture are using art to help with their recovery.

Located in Finsbury Park, the charity 'Freedom from Torture' helps survivors of torture rebuild their lives.

On Thursday afternoons the art studio at Freedom from Torture opens to clients undergoing therapy to create art and express themselves.

Ronce was a political prisoner in the Democratic Republic of Congo and fled to the UK. As an asylum seeker in the UK he is unable to work. His art keeps him going.

Neil McCarthy talks to Ronce and other survivors at the art studio to hear how these sessions are helping them leave a traumatic past behind.
