Kate Beynon

Kate is a highly experienced physiotherapist who has helped countless patients recover from pain and injury and improve their overall physical well-being. She earned her first-class honours degree in Physiotherapy from Kings College London in 2003 and gained membership to the Health Care Professionals Council in the same year.

Kate's early career was spent working for Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust where she gained valuable experience across a range of specialties including musculoskeletal outpatients, neurological rehabilitation, orthopaedics, ITU, and palliative care. After her time at Brighton, Kate decided to specialise in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, working for both the Hertfordshire NHS Trust and the private sector.

Kate understands the impact that long-term pain can have on your mental and physical health. As a new mother, she experienced persistent pain and disability, which led her to take a career break from physiotherapy in order to prioritise her own health. During this period, she discovered the value of mindfulness-based pain management techniques, which played a vital role in supporting her own recovery. As a certified Breathworks Mindfulness teacher, she is now able to incorporate this approach into her physiotherapy practice, allowing her patients to benefit from this unique perspective.

Whether patients are suffering with an acute injury or a more long-term problem, Kate is committed to really listening to her patients’ needs in order to provide personalised care and support. She utilizes a variety of techniques and modalities, such as manual therapy, exercise prescription, breath pattern re-education and mindfulness training to help patients achieve their goals, reduce stress and improve their overall well-being.

In her free time, Kate enjoys spending time in nature with her friends and family, walking her dog, and lake swimming when it's warm enough!

With her wealth of knowledge and experience, and her personal experience of recovery from persistent pain, Kate is dedicated to helping patients achieve lasting improvements in their overall health and well-being through a holistic and patient-centred approach.

Testimonials

Kate’s ability to question & listen and her generosity in sharing her knowledge of research and helpful support material, have transformed my outlook.  I no longer feel resigned to a life of pain which can exhaust me and depress me, because Kate has given me the tools to drastically reduce that pain.  

I cannot praise Kate as a physiotherapist highly enough.

I have just completed five sessions with Kate Beynon, which have been literally life changing.

I initially booked to see her last December for physiotherapy for a frozen shoulder. After the first two sessions with her and after following her advice and her exercises, my shoulder was pain-free and almost fully mobile, which was fantastic.

Treatments

Physiotherapy helps restore movement and function when someone is affected by injury, illness or disability.

Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.

Physiotherapy is a science-based profession and takes a ‘whole person’ approach to health and wellbeing, which includes the patient’s general lifestyle.

At the core is the patient’s involvement in their own care, through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in their treatment.
You can benefit from physiotherapy at any time in your life. Physiotherapy helps with back pain or sudden injury, managing long-term problems, and preparation for a sporting event.

Physiotherapy is a degree-based healthcare profession. Physiotherapists use their knowledge and skills to improve a range of conditions associated with different systems of the body, such as neuro-musculoskeletal (back pain, whiplash associated disorder, sports injuries, arthritis) or neurological (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s).

“Cognitive functional therapy was developed as a flexible integrated behavioral approach for individualizing the management of disabling Lower Back Pain. This approach has evolved from an integration of foundational behavioral psychology and neuroscience within physical therapist practice. It is underpinned by a multidimensional clinical reasoning framework in order to identify the modifiable and nonmodifiable factors associated with an individual's disabling LBP."
Peter B O’Sullivan, J P Caneiro, Mary O’Keeffe, Anne Smith, Wim Dankaerts, Kjartan Fersum, Kieran O’Sullivan, Cognitive Functional Therapy: An Integrated Behavioral Approach for the Targeted Management of Disabling Low Back Pain, Physical Therapy, Volume 98, Issue 5, May 2018, Pages 408–423, https://doi.org/10.1093/ptj/pzy022

There is significant research and continuing research to evidence the effectiveness of Cognitive Functional Therapy compared with other forms of physiotherapy, pain management and psychology in helping patients with disabling pain manage their symptoms and improve their life. Our practitioners often successfully use this approach after patients have undergone many failed treatments elsewhere, including surgery and successfully help many people return to a normal life where pain is not preventing them from doing the things they love.

Once you have had a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis from an Osteopath or Physiotherapist a thorough individualised rehabilitation program will be created. This may be led and monitored by the Physiotherapist, Osteopath or Torie, our exercise specialist. You will be guided by your practitioner and your program will build to help you achieve your individual goals, whether that’s hitting a golf ball, running around a football pitch, climbing a mountain or lifting your shopping in from the car!

Your exercises will be tailored to help reduce your pain and improve your function.  Your home exercise plan will enable you to practice before your next session in order to progress.

Please ask your practitioner or reception about the Rehab Plan.
