Dr Kerry Clarke

PhD, PGCE, BSc, Yoga teacher and Motivational Interviewing Trainer.

Kerry’s career started in the military with intense physical activities and a mantra of ‘no pain no gain’. It was whilst playing rugby for the Army that she developed a knee injury and her evolving interest in yoga supported her long-term recovery following an operation. It opened an enduring interest in preventative healthcare. After the military, she founded a Yoga Studio which became a wonderful community, offering a variety of styles.

In 2014, Kerry completed a PhD on the adherence of exercise referral schemes across Northamptonshire. She used that new knowledge to coordinate preventative healthcare services in the county. As well as supporting patients, clients and fellow practitioners in achieve enduring wellbeing behavioural changes.

Kerry’s passion to support people on their wellbeing journey is infusive. She contributes to Fitter For Life both as a mentor to Wellbeing functional executives and as physical activity practitioner leading our Yoga services. She describes Fitter For Life as an inspiring preventative healthcare initiative.

Her knowledge and experience are enabling her to make a leading contribution to our evolving relationship with the National Health Service.
