Until 2012, Katherine was responsible for the expansion of the health clinic at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance which became Laban Health in 2009. Originally a clinic offering physiotherapy and massage it is now a multi-disciplinary complementary health clinic for performing artists in South East London. There are a wide range of specialist treatments available for all dancers and musicians and the clinic has been re-named Trinity Laban Health to reflect this.
