Imagine Me allowed me to enjoyably release suppressed internal feelings artistically, creatively, socially and ultimately therapeutically through my portrait.

As a disabled person who took part in one of Sue's workshops I would like to say how beneficial it was. The way Sue took us through the process of completing our portrait was so beneficial in many ways. I watched in awe as a very paralysed wheelchair bound girl took her first photo using a camera phone controlled by her using a mouth stick. It was a very special moment for her signalled by the look of extreme jubilation that followed.

I suffered a spinal cord injury …. After suffering this type of injury your world is tipped upside down and your hopes and dreams seem lost forever. Projects like the Imagine Me workshop are an extremely important part both the recovery process and the wellbeing of everyone involved. They bring back hope, social connection and an overall feeling of worth. To me, my picture represents a deflated body being lifted from despair to a new life of hope and opportunity
