Drawing on your personal strengths, we will help equip you with tools and insights to reduce stress,
enhance your wellbeing and create sustained improvements in your mental health and relationships.
Kate Shepherd- Director Industry Health Solutions
I'm Kate, the founder and director of Industry Health Solutions. It's been a fantastic journey since I graduated as an Occupational Therapist over 17 years ago and started my career in regional Queensland to running a private practice in the NT.
It was 15 years ago when I arrived in Darwin- I still remember walking out of the airport at 9pm during the dry season and thinking “wow– this is hot”…. and I was from North Queensland! Like a lot of Darwinite’s, I came for a year and never left.
Industry Health Solutions was born 11 years ago. From a business that started at my kitchen table we steadily grew to a multidisciplinary organisation that employs occupational therapists, psychologists, exercise physiologists, registered nurses and employment specialists. At IHS we believe that NONE OF US ARE AS GOOD AS ALL OF US and our interdisciplinary approach is our magic sauce.
Our organisational values are openness, collaboration and service with sincerity and integrity. We care- absolutely.
I work with clients with chronic pain, complex physical and/ or psychological conditions. I believe work is a key determinant of health and have always had a keen interest in reducing the impact of long term work absence, work disability and unemployment on client’s health.
I am able to provide expert consultancy services across workers compensation schemes, complex employment assistance to employers, return to work, ergonomics, psychological conditions and chronic pain management services.
When I’m not doing what I love at work, I like to spend time with my family and I like to grow edible stuff in the garden.
