Wellness coaching at Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing in Lincoln integrates different aspects of lifestyle medicine into coaching to help people nurture wellness & thrive. Wellness coaching with Ann helps you to explore different aspects of wellbeing and discover what changes could nurture your wellbeing, support you to do what matters most and thrive. Ann works jointly with you to empower you to reach your desired health & wellbeing goals.
Our health & wellbeing affects all aspects of life and vice versa. Some of the many factors that affect our health & wellbeing include stress, eating habits, physical activity, sleep, thinking habits, beliefs, behaviours, mindsets, and our self-talk. There are some things in life we cannot control, focusing what we can control and having a toolbox of strategies helps us to manage the difficult times and thrive. All weathers are present to varying degrees each day, noticing them and choosing which to focus on is part of looking after our wellbeing.
Mental health & physical health cannot truly be split, body & mind (bodymind) are inextricably interlinked. This is why Ann integrates the knowledge and skills from the many bodymind therapies she has studied into coaching. Ann is a trained Chartered Physiotherapist, life coach, neurolinguistic programming (NLP) practitioner, meditation and yoga teacher. She also has a certification in functional nutrition & chronic pain, myofascial & integrative fascial release, and has done extensive training in compassion focused therapy (also called compassionate mind training), along with some training in acceptance and commitment therapy.
Ann has developed her own wellbeing framework, called the PACE’s & SIM’s, which is part of her book ‘Dancing Through Life: A Guide to Living Well.’ Aspects of the PACE’s & SIM’s, or all of them, are explored in wellness coaching as part of individual tailored care. The image below is the PACE’s & SIM’s image from Ann’s book.

What to expect
We all have the ability to help ourselves, you understand you best, coaching empowers you to make choices with greater knowledge and understanding. Coaching with Ann will deepen your understanding through questioning and compassionate exploration. We usually explore your values as these guide, inspire and motivate us. They are also a compass for living a meaningful and purposeful life, they guide us to move in the directions that are heartfelt and meaningful. When we are living out of line with our values it often affects our wellbeing, and ability to thrive.
Ann takes an embodied, or somatic approach to coaching, which basically means noticing how something like stress or anxiety is showing up in your body and compassionately exploring this and then making helpful changes. Connecting to our bodies is really important especially as we commonly disconnect from them due to, such as trauma, anxiety, stress, not feeling good enough, persistent pain and many more reasons. Integrative fascial release is a therapy which is integrated, when helpful, to help you connect to your body and calm the nervous system. Following exploration a variety of practices are used to help you create what would be more nurturing, makes helpful changes and helps you to achieve your goals.
