Kate Speldewinde

Founder & Physiotherapist

After living abroad in Greece for college and being inspired to continue study in science from her biology professor, Kate relocated back to Canberra to commence studies to become a Physiotherapist.  Completing a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and then her Masters in Physiotherapy through the University of Canberra, Kate went straight into working in private practice.  Following her long-standing interest in sports, Kate also became the Physiotherapist for several years for the 1st grade men’s team at Ainslie Football Club, supporting and travelling with the side while they competed in the NEAFL.

During her studies, Kate also developed an interest in Women’s Health conditions and this interest continued to grow as she began to regularly treat prenatal and postnatal women in private practice.  It was here that Kate realised there was so much to learn and to teach regarding the intricacies of the always changing female body, so Kate furthered her studies in the Women’s Health industry with additional professional development courses as well as completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy through the University of Melbourne.

Kate’s passion for this population is evident in the time she takes to educate her patients to help ensure the best outcomes for all women across their lifespans. It is this passion that also played a big role in how and why Sound CBR was first created.

Despite this special interest, Kate continues to enjoy treating all general musculoskeletal injuries and is a qualified Pilates instructor, teaching clinical Pilates classes as well as prenatal and postnatal Pilates.

Outside of running her own practice and rehabbing the pelvic floors of Canberra, you’ll find Kate stealing cuddles from her sooky 34kg lapdog, enjoying newly found motherhood, and trying to sneak away with her family for a weekend of glamping in ‘Winnie’ the caravan!

Special Interests: prenatal and postnatal injuries, female pelvic floor conditions, back pain, lower limb injuries
