KATE BERRIDGE

Clinical Nurse Specialist in Bariatrics RNcP MN (Hons)
Founder of Beyond Obesity

Kate has been a nurse for over 30 years. She is one of New Zealand’s most experienced in the specialty of Bariatrics (Weight Loss Surgery) having started in 2007 when Middlemore Hospital first began offering a Bariatric Service. In that time she has helped thousands of people with their weight loss journey - at times literally walking alongside them.

In 2016 Kate left Middlemore Hospital and completed a Master’s degree which now forms a significant part of the framework for Beyond Obesity and the services her business offers.

As a result of the time in the hospital system and her research Kate has become an advocate of whole-person health. Her consults are built around each individual’s needs and are designed to enable a person to develop their own self care strategies so that they can lead the healthiest life that works for them.
