Michelle Duffy

Services offered

As an Occupational Therapist Michelle uses a person-centred approach to provide practical support to people whose health prevents them doing activities/occupations that matter to them.  

Occupational Therapists provide opportunities through groups or 1:1 for individuals to work on their skills/confidence in a safe and supportive environment to enable them to lead a more independent life.

Occupational Therapy focuses on the three areas: self care, work/being productive and leisure. Below are some examples of activities within the three areas:

  • Self care - washing, dressing and eating meals
  • Being productive - going to work or college and volunteering
  • Leisure - socialising and participating in hobbies


Previous work experience as an Occupational Therapist includes:

  • Learning Disability Community Team
  • Forensic mental health
  • Community mental health
  • Physical  health in both a hospital and community setting for older people

Michelle has also worked in mental health rehabilitation and a day centre for individuals living with dementia.
