(she / they)
I'm Kate Walker (gender fluid / queer identifying) - a Speech Pathologist, Naturopath, Sound Therapist and Advocate.
I'm also a traveller, explorer, theatre lover and singer.
My music theatre background led me down the path of Speech Pathology and I have now been working in the field for 14 years. I've had a diverse career and my love of voice and passion for LGBTQIA+ advocacy made working in the gender affirming space a natural progression. In 2020, alongside Northside Health NT, I set up the first Gender Voice Clinic in Darwin after seeing a big gap in services. I then advocated for this service to move into the public health system with success. I have also worked with the Gender Voice Centre providing online services to transgender and non-binary folk.
As a qualified Naturopath I bring a holistic approach to all that I do. I believe that a healthy body requires a healthy community to live in - and I see my role as tending to both the individual and the collective.
My vision for affirm & thrive is to provide the space for LGBTQIA+ folk to thrive in body, mind and spirit.
It is my mission to ensure every LGBTQIA+ individual sees that their uniqueness is their biggest strength and to support each individual to live in alignment with themselves.
