Our Occupational Therapist

Our Therapist

Zandri qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 2009 from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. She specialises in the field of Paediatrics and has developed her skills within a variety of different settings as well as through post graduate diplomas such as Sensory Integration. After graduating, Zandri worked in an acute government hospital environment in South Africa, seeing both paediatric and adult patients. She then went on to work for a non-profit organisation, providing therapy services to children living in children's homes as well as supporting them through the adoption process. Thereafter she moved into the private sector, running her own independent practice within a clinic as well as school settings for a number of years. In 2018, her family made the move to the UK, where she has been working in London within the private sector (with The OT Practice (TOTP) specifically for the last 2 years or so)
