Positive Inspiration was started by Rogan Grant, who suffered an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) in 2006. Rogan struggled with the issues involved and became depressed and anxious over the ongoing affects. After trying Hypnotherapy, the results were fast and long lasting, Rogan turned to retraining and became qualified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist in 2013, he continued to train and studied Counselling and Psychotherapy. As he progressed he qualifed in NLP, EFT, CBT, Mindfulness, Nutrition, Massage and is currrently studying Traditional Acupuncture.
Since 2013 he has been offering his services to charitable orginasations like Momentum , Bear Ahead and Headway, who support ABI, as well as practicing in Natural Health while gaining further qualifications and experience. Positive Inspiration was his sole trader business and he managed to share his time between free help and paying clients, though the demand for assistance for those within the third sector grew. Positive Inspiration registered as a company in 2016, which included CIC registration (Community Interest Company), this means that ALL profits are used to supply a service to those connected with ABI and PTSD.
Orginasations are continually looking for health benefits to support their clients, and by using a combination of the therapies available from Rogan and other willing therapists, that is exactly what they can get.
Brain injury is individual to each person, the affects and levels are all different. Standard western medicine can do amazing things, but when a person is struggling inside, it is the person that needs treated, not the symptom.
By raising funds, we can offer support by supplying therapists to different premises around Edinburgh, the Lothians and Borders. These therapists can see individual clients and spend time over periods of 6, 8 or 10 weeks building a connection and complete treatment plan.
We need to covers costs of transport & travel around the area, printing of information and instruction guides needed for those with memory issues, recording and production of specialist audio, the equipment used for specific groups and room hire, as well as some suppliments to specific outside therapies which we bring in when requested.
The annual costs for offering this service for 15 hours per week at different premises are over £36,000pa and growing. As the benefits and awareness of Positive Inspiration grow, the requirement for outside funding will lower, until then, to be able to continue to provide a free or subsidised service for the next 6 months we need YOUR help.
