Kate initially trained in Psychology completing her undergraduate degree at the University of Reading, her final year specialising in Clinical Psychology. After working in the mental health sector, Kate wanted to develop her understanding of the physical side of rehabilitation, once appreciating the interactive relationship between psychological and physical health. Kate then completed her Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Essex in 2014.
A keen sportswoman, Kate has a natural interest in Sports Injury Rehabilitation, and throughout her Physiotherapy training has gained experience working in different physiotherapy fields, including Musculoskeletal, Orthopaedics, Sports Injury Rehabilitation, Neurological and Amputee Rehabilitation. She has also worked as a Physiotherapist as part of the Claydon Clinic Team at the finish line of London Marathon’s.
Utilising her Psychological understanding, Kate’s specialist interest is Neuro-Rehabilitation, and after leaving university she worked as a specialised Paediatric Physiotherapist for children and young adults with developmental neurological conditions and acquired brain injuries, including Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Muscular Dystrophy and Spina Bifida. Within this job role she also worked with adults with neurological conditions including Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Spinal Cord Injuries.
