Abigail Guettler

Profile

I am an occupational therapist working as a case manager with more than 15 years of clinical experience in neurological rehabilitation.  My area of clinical practice is severe brain injury and spinal cord injury.

I have spent more than seven  years working as a case manager in the UK supporting clients with a catastrophic brain injury and spinal cord injury.  Prior to moving to the UK I worked as an independent neurological OT in Ontario, Canada with both brain injury and spinal cord injury clients.  The role of an OT in Ontario’s private practice overlaps here with the roles of Case Management and Expert Witness.
