Wellness coaching at Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing in Lincoln integrates different aspects of lifestyle medicine into coaching to help people nurture their wellbeing & thrive. Ann has a particular interest in helping people experiencing chronic stress and anxiety.
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 on what we can control and having a toolbox of strategies helps us to navigate the difficult times in life 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.
Wellness coaching with Ann helps you to explore different aspects of wellbeing and discover what changes could support your wellbeing & help you to thrive. Ann works jointly with you as you explore what will help you to react your desired health & wellbeing goals.
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 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/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. Here’s 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. 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.
Who we see
Ann sees anyone wanting to improve their health and wellbeing. She always works within her knowledge and skills limits, sometimes it’s more appropriate for you to see another professional, like a psychologist, if this is the case it will be discussed with you and Ann can work alongside them with you if this is helpful.
