One of our students Molly Brooke, attends Bright Lives and has achieved fantastic progression and produced amazing work, Molly has provided the following statement.


My name is Molly and I go to Bright Lives Social Enterprise. I am a young woman with several serious conditions, the most noticeable being Epilepsy and Conversion Disorder. Epilepsy is pretty well known but despite everything, mine is pretty poorly controlled. I still have at least one big seizure a month and many smaller ones more often. Conversion Disorder by comparison is a barely known condition. However it is incredibly debilitating, causing me at times to be paralysed from the waist down, and sometime lose my speech altogether. I started visiting Bright Lives in December of 2014, and have been here for a little over a year now. I come twice weekly, and it's changed my life. When I started I could barely make decisions for myself, I had little to know self confidence, and no real skills. In the just more than a year since I began, I have had a huge boost in self confidence, I now know how to and often do make my own decisions, I take a more active role in the decisions about my care. I have also discovered a passion and skill. Sewing. I love it! My room is thrilled with things I have made and every item and project gives me great joy. Now Bright Lives have given me the opportunity to sell some of the things I’ve made, and what a wonderful opportunity it is. I can't thank the people at the centre enough for the change they have brought to my life. Molly
