What our Team Say

Zoe Edmondson Private Occupational Therapist

“I decided to join the OT centre when I was looking for greater job satisfaction along side my other part time role and to return to the field of Paediatrics. I was keen to work with the OT Centre as I had heard positive things from peers and due to their eagerness to provide and promote high-quality, client centred therapy for their clients. Being an OT with The OT Centre has been a very rewarding move for my career.”
