For the duration of the C-19 outbreak, I will be working full time for the NHS. I have also made the difficult decision that after this period, I will be returning to the NHS four full days a week. This means that I will no longer be able to continue with my private clinical sessions at The Broad Street Practice, but happily, I will be able to continue my physio-led Pilates classes in the BSP studio on a Friday.
Sarah and Emily will, I know, continue to offer the highest level of support and care to my patients who wish to continue with their physiotherapy at the Practice.
Best wishes to all. Kate
Kate graduated as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2006 from Sheffield Hallam. She has consolidated her physiotherapy practice in a range of settings, including the NHS and private sector, both in the UK and abroad. She has gained a wealth of experience in musculoskeletal medicine, orthopaedics and sports rehabilitation.
Kate has worked with many professional sports people, including Sheffield United Football Club, Sheffield Eagles Rugby League, Water Polo teams, and the Maltese Athletics Association. She has had vast experience with shoulder and knee conditions, ACL rehabilitation, and acute and chronic spinal conditions.
Kate has had extensive experience within the NHS in an acute environment in the hospital setting and is currently working part-time in the NHS alongside specialist and GP services. By combining NHS and private practice, Kate is able to continually develop and grow in a number of areas within musculoskeletal practice, thus being able to help a wider group of people.
In the early stages of her career Kate became a qualified Personal trainer and Exercise Instructor. She has gained experience in working with varied fitness levels and conditions, combining these skills with Physiotherapy in her private and NHS work. She is passionate about exercise and movement patterns, and can develop successful rehabilitation programmes for both the sporting and general population.
Kate has also attended many courses in pain management and currently works with a variety of complex pain presentations using a cognitive functional approach largely when managing persistent pain.
Kate is also a fully certified Pilates instructor and has been teaching Pilates in both one to one and group sessions for over 12 years.
When she is not working, Kate enjoys spending time with friends and family. She can be found either in the gym, running the parkrun, or practising yoga and Pilates. She loves to travel and is currently learning Spanish, a change from health and fitness!
