The Team

Vicki Abraham (Managing Director / OT)

Vicki Abraham saw a huge need for additional community based OT sessions back in 1999 in order to provide OT services to people out in the community without them having to wait at least 6 months for this service. With this in mind she began treating people within their own environments, ensuring that they did not have a lengthy wait. As this need increased over time so did the type and level of service being provided. Vicki decided that it was time to stop being a sole practitioner and opened a practice of community OTs in order to provide the services required in the wider community.

Vicki has been awarded the 2013 George Alexander Foundation Fellowship under the guidance of the International Specialised Skills Institute. This will allow Vicki to further her knowledge in CI Therapy and other upper limb rehab therapies in order to be able to provide such therapies in the new AOTS clinic.
