Lizeli is a Neuro Occupational Therapist with 10 years’ experience, working with culturally diverse clients in South Africa and the UK, gaining skills in effective management and intervention of complex needs, particularly dealing with Acquired Brain Injury & other neurological conditions.

“I have worked with diverse populations with minimal resources and societal barriers, contributing to my solution focussed approach to rehabilitation. I qualified from Stellenbosch University as an OT and have since completed additional training in my field of interest, at the University of South Africa in Industrial and Organisational Psychology and in clinical leadership at Leeds University.”

She has gained experience working in both the public and private sector, and have spent the last 5 years working with Injured Service personnel, at a leading Ministry of Defence Rehabilitation Centre in the UK.

“I have expanded my skills in Vocational Rehabilitation, supporting soldiers in both; return to military occupations and civilian transition. Through the provision of vocational counselling, support and Psychometric profiling, I have assisted clients in returning to purposeful occupation and adapting to challenges, following significant injuries. During this time, I also practised as Case Manager, assessing for rehabilitation needs and coordinating recovery of claimants with ABIs, orthopaedic and mental health conditions. I am fascinated by the reaction to change on both an individual and organisational level and get a great sense of satisfaction in facilitating and influencing positive growth.”
