LAILA MOTTY

I am a clinical specialist qualified Occupational Therapist and the founder of HT Neuro Rehab in London, a very reputable Occupational Therapist service. I am genuinely passionate about what I do; to me, it is a vocation and as well as clinical work. I also organize training for private occupational therapists in London. Additionally, I  train students on clinical placement.

I constantly strive to stay up-to-date with new innovations in the field and I am registered with the Health & Care Professional Council (HCPC) and the Royal College of Occupational Therapy (RCOT).  To find out more about what I  do, please visit my website here (https://htneurorehab.com) or get in touch here (https://htneurorehab.com/contact/).

My work is very much about helping people to regain their independence and I’ve had many different patients over my years as an OT.  I help those with orthopedic conditions, brain injuries, major trauma, accident, and emergency cases and I also help retrain upper limbs as well as general rehabilitation.  Additionally, I am highly trained in PDoC (Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness) and Functional Neurological Disorders (FND).

For the past few years, I have developed an interest in treating Occupational Burnout syndrome and have been supporting clinicians in preventing and managing their lives after Burnout.

This site is for those wanting to know more about Burnout and how to achieve a work-life balance and increase their quality of life.
