We know that having a stroke can shake your confidence

A stroke is a sudden 'brain attack' that occurs when the blood flow to part of the brain is cut off. Usually, this is due to a blood clot. It usually comes out of the blue, which may bring unexpected changes to your life. Lack of confidence and low self esteem can be common due to feelings of frustration that you cannot do things you could do before the stroke.
We are aware that regaining confidence after a stroke is one of the top priorities defined by stroke survivors. It is important to focus on regaining some independence and to continue to learn new skills whilst setting realistic goals.
