After qualifying as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2000, Kate worked in acute and community rehabilitation settings. She then went on to complete a Masters degree in Sports Medicine which sparked an interest in the role of therapeutic exercise in mental health, and lead to her taking up a post as a Physiotherapist within the specialism of mental health where she has worked for the last 18 years. Kate's current post is as a Lead Mental Health Physiotherapist and oversees physiotherapy service delivery across a range of mental health inpatient settings, as well as working clinically on an adult eating disorder inpatient unit in Cambridge. Kate is also the Chair of the Physiotherapy Eating Disorder Professional Network in the UK and is very passionate about the inclusion of physiotherapy as part of eating disorder treatment and has particular interest in exercise and eating disorders.
