Kate qualified from The Royal London hospital/University of East London as a chartered physiotherapist in 1991. She has worked as a specialist Physiotherapist in Pelvic Health since 2002.
She works in NHS and privately on Merseyside and in London where her caseload includes a wide spectrum of pelvic problems including bladder and bowel dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse , chronic pelvic pain and sexual dysfunction. She has a special interest in postnatal rehabilitation (particularly after perineal trauma) and pelvic dysfunction associated with the perimenopause (dryness, incontinence etc). As a champion for women being able to seek the appropriate help to restore balance and control at all stages of their lives, Kate draws on her wealth of clinical experience to offer a package of care using a holistic approach in the management of pelvic health disorders. This includes advice on lifestyle, exercise, diet as well as treatment techniques including electrical neuromuscular stimulation, biofeedback and ThermiVa vaginal rejuvenation.
On an academic level, teaching plays a central role and Kate lectures on the post graduate Master’s course at University of Bradford in Continence Physiotherapy (bladder and bowel) which she also completed in 2012, as well as being an external lecturer within the School of Health Sciences at the University of Liverpool. As a tutor on the Advanced Pelvic floor and Lower Bowel Dysfunction Courses for the POGP (Pelvic Obstetric Gynaecological Physiotherapy) professional body, Kate ensures that her clinical practice is both up to date and evidence based. She is also regularly invited to speak at national and international meetings.
