Katy has enjoyed a varied career working as a Speech and Language therapist and in leadership roles in NHS hospitals, neurorehabilitation units and community teams, in the charity sector and in independent practice.
Her clinical area of interest is working with people with acquired brain injury, particularly focusing on their cognitive-communication skills. Katy enjoys working in partnership with the individual, their families and significant others, focusing on the areas that are of personal importance, and enabling them to feel more confident and knowledgeable about managing their communication changes.
She is also a professional supervisor and mentor for Allied Health Professionals and advocates for the importance of clinicians prioritising time for professional reflection and their own self-care.
Katy first became aware of Bridges when working at the Wolfson Neurorehabilitation Centre in SW London. The Bridges principles closely align with her own values, and she has always been inspired by the organisation’s co-production approach.
As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
