Clinical Specialist

About Kerry Lauder

I’ve been with Katie Bell Physio since 2021. I decided to specialise in the field of musculoskeletal Physiotherapy as a junior Physiotherapist in 2005. Since then I have completed post graduate courses to develop my skills and over the years I have treated a wide variety of people with all manner of different problems. 

I have been a Physiotherapist since 2005 – how time flies! I like that there’s always opportunities to learn and develop my skills and I get great satisfaction from helping people achieve their health goals. Whether it’s recovering from an injury, managing a long term problem or supporting someone to be stronger for longer. I really enjoy working with people to improve their pain and give them the confidence, and ability to do what they want to do when they want to do it.

Katie Bell Physio is such a friendly place to work. When I first started I received lots of welcome messages which made me feel very comfortable. I like that KB Physiotherapy really values the local community. The staff here really do care and go that extra mile for their clients.

Hobbies, Hidden Talents & More Info

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my 3 children. We enjoy camping and the great outdoors. We recently tried abseiling and canoeing – we had a great day and by cheating my daughter and I won the canoe race against my 2 sons. I do spend a lot of time taking my kids to their various sporting activities and embarrassing them (so they tell me) when I cheer them on. I enjoy reading when I have a quiet moment and I try to keep myself fit by participating in HIIT classes – I do like that post workout buzz.

As a working mum with 3 kids I am busy most of the time. I love being Physiotherapist, however when I was at school I wanted to become a Vet. I wasn’t successful getting into vet school so I graduated with an Honours degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Edinburgh in 2000. I used to participate in a lot of sport, particularly athletics and through injury I learnt about Physiotherapy. After graduation I worked as Physiotherapy assistant for a year in a Mental Health hospital – I loved this so much I decided to go back to University to become a Physiotherapist. As for a hidden talent, I don’t have one. I enjoy singing but my kids reassure me that it’s not a talent.
