Ann works as a specialist physiotherapist & integrative somatic practitioner in Lincoln at Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing, which she founded in 2009.  Within physiotherapy Ann originally specialised in persistent pain and neurology, she also developed a special interest in helping people who are struggling with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), long covid/post covid syndrome and postural tachycardia syndrome (PoTS).  Ann provides specialist physiotherapy in person Lincoln and/or remotely (phone/video) and virtually worldwide for people living with persistent pain and/or fatigue, and still sees people with FND from a neurological perspective.  Ann combines coaching, yoga, somatics/embodiment, compassionate mind training, NLP & the principles of acceptance & commitment therapy with physiotherapy for people with pain and/or ME/CFS, long covid, and PoTS to help them move with more ease, be able to do what matters most & thrive.  She understands persistent pain, ME/CFS & PoTS from a personal perspective too and knows it’s always possible to make some helpful changes.  All of Ann’s offerings are trauma informed, she has done a lot of training in this area.  

The integrative somatic side of Ann’s work is also offered separately to physiotherapy for anyone wanting to improve their wellbeing and/or make some changes in life.  Within this side of her work Ann has a particular interest in helping people with chronic stress, anxiety and trauma.  There is a whole chapter on stress management in the book she published in 2020 (Dancing through Life: A Guide to Living Well).   This book is a practical guide that covers many different aspects of wellbeing, you can find out more about it at the bottom of this page.

All of Ann’s work aims to help people too connect to their body in a way that builds safety, trust and compassion.  Through this and giving people different choices to explore Ann aims to empower people to make changes that support their health and wellbeing, healing and being able to thrive.
