Kate has been a physiotherapist for over 30 years, working in all aspects of the physiotherapy profession. Kate’s early experience of working at Royal Perth Hospital with most of her time spent in the ICU, Head Injury and Cardiothoracic Units, led her to become interested in treating the more challenging clients with multiple injuries, Complex Pain Syndrome or poorly understood pain complaints.
Kate has expertise in treating the three areas that are linked with breathing, Lumbo-Pelvic, Cranial/Sacral and Rib/Thorax.
Many people with pain complain that exercise and movement aggravates their condition. This can be very true as the need for breathing is emphasised with any movement or exercise.
If this is the problem, then the area linked to breathing must be addressed.
Kate’s attention to these areas has been her passion for the last 25 years.
Kate brought this expertise to Beaumaris Physiotherapy in 2007 when she joined the team as a partner and has been using this treatment and getting fantastic results with patients with chronic pain in the community ever since.
Kate’s youth was spent swimming and playing water polo, so she remains a regular ocean swimmer for personal fitness.

Shelia is passionate about Health & Fitness and the physiological and psychological benefits of regular exercise and movement. She is interested in people and believes in being hands on when it comes to physiotherapy treatment. She loves the challenge of helping people get better but understands that sometimes rehabilitation can be slow and so strives to educate, inspire and motivate patients recovering from injury.
She is also qualified in Level 1 Lymphoedema, Functional Training, Kinesiology Taping, run coaching and has been a Group Fitness Instructor (trained in 6 Les Mills Program) for the last 18 years.
Shelia regularly exercises and works out at a gym and can therefore relate to common fitness-training injuries and have a sympathetic understanding of their effect.
