Meet Laila, the Founder of the OT Founders’ Network

My name is Laila Motty, the founder of OT Founders’ Network and I am a qualified Occupational Therapist with years of experience in the field.  I’ve enjoyed a long career working within the NHS as well as in private hospitals.

I also run my own private practice, HT Neuro Rehab.  In addition, I support other private practitioners providing clinical supervisor, mentoring, and training.  I am the author of Burnout Support for healthcare professionals and keep my own OT blog populated with useful information.

Why the OT Founder’s Network?

When I first started in private practice, I struggled to find practical training with skills that were useful to me to start my own practice.  I found the first steps overwhelming, there was a multitude of information to digest – the government guidelines, ICO, GDPR, source documentation and assessments.  It felt like an insurmountable task, but I persisted.

It took me a few years to alter my business mindset and understand the ingredients of what’s needed to set up a practice.   I’d invested a lot of money and tried two ventures, implementing various business strategies within my practice.  I did succeed and I learnt a lot of useful techniques to help me along the way.

Interestingly, over the last few years, many healthcare professionals (OT’s and other specialists) have approached me with questions, asking for support, particularly wanting to understand how to merge a clinical mindset with a business mindset.  Armed with plenty of knowledge, I’ve helped lots of healthcare professionals develop their own, successful businesses and that inspired the OT Founders’ Network.  Through the network, healthcare professionals looking to set up their own businesses can harness the tools required, saving valuable time and reducing the potential to make costly mistakes when setting up on their own.

Please contact me here for any questions.  I’d be delighted to help.

Joining the OT Founders’ Network significantly reduces the stress of starting a new business, so members can concentrate om the things that matter most and clinical caseloads.

Let’s stay connected
