Kate is a highly specialised children’s physiotherapist with over 35 years’ experience working with babies, children and teenagers. She believes that the key to achieving maximum potential lies in the empowerment of parents.
Prior to setting up, and in the early stages of KidsPhysio, Kate gained valuable experience by working in NHS hospitals and clinics; for a university supporting physiotherapy students, and for a charity providing aid in Romania.
Kate has completed the full Bobath training, as well as many other courses. She believes that an eclectic, holistic approach to children’s physiotherapy is most effective. She loves to analyse movement and postures and find the keys to promoting a child’s comfort and function. She has had great results using kinesio-taping (adapted for children and babies) to target specific muscles or movements.
Kate now works with children in their homes and schools in Milton Keynes. Do get in touch if you would like some more information regarding Kate’s experience or to arrange an appointment.
