Be Inspired

Truth be known – it’s the people using Headway Basingstoke’s services who inspire me. I witness their strength and determination to overcome the difficulties they are experiencing in living with brain injury every day. Whether they are affected directly by brain injury themselves or are carers working with their loved ones; how could I not be inspired by their stories and experiences. I know I draw on their strength when facing challenges myself.

Hero's Journey

I was inspired to create this piece of clay work while I was on my Hero’s Journey at Headway Basingstoke.
I wanted to have something to symbolise that journey and to keep to remind me of that as it has played such a huge and important part of my recovery.
Also, to inspire me to keep up all the hard work involved to get the best results for me following my brain injury.
I see the butterfly as “The New Me”, being set free to fly and move onto new things and new ventures following my stroke.
