Passionate About Independence
Hello, I am Hayley, and I set up Independence Found Ltd in 2017. I qualified as an Occupational Therapist back in 2002 and have thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my work over the years. I was known for being creatively independent as I grew up and this value propelled me towards the occupational therapy profession. I believe in the health benefits of empowering people to participate as fully as possible in their day to day lives despite illness or injury. I am a Case Manager for Independence Works in addition to being the Principal Occupational Therapist and Director of Independence Found Ltd and the Business Start Up Lead for the Royal College Of Occupational Therapy SSIP. I have a select group of experienced and highly skilled Occupational Therapists who work with me. They bring a great mix of skill to the team and so we make the most of working collaboratively and sharing best practice.
"We put our clients at the centre of their therapy and apply a goal directed approach to identifying what clients need, want or are expected to participate in. We provide solution focused interventions to progress towards their goals."
All OT's have been qualified over 10 years, are registered with HCPC and are RCOT members. DBS status is checked regularly and feedback is frequently sought from service users, referrers, and staff to ensure continuous development of our services. Clinical supervision is provided regularly for all active cases and professional development is supported individually and collaboratively.
