Her clinical experience also includes working with the elderly and she has been a university guest lecturer to final year physiotherapy students on multi trauma rehabilitation. Annie has completed post graduate training in hydrotherapy, dma Clinical Pilates and dry needling.

Annie is a passionate advocate of personal wellbeing and sharing her knowledge on how to use one’s body efficiently and reach one’s physical potential, remaining pain-free if possible. She believes in giving clients the skills for on-going self care. Annie speaks from both the therapist’s and patient’s points of view, having been her own rehabilitation therapist, taking two years to learn to walk again unaided following a near fatal paragliding accident which left her back and neck fractured in 7 places, both legs and numerous ribs fractured and a lung punctured. Annie understands that not all injuries have a quick fix, that many need ongoing care and maintenance- some for life. She encouragingly advises this does not need to be a chore, but can be fun, with clinical pilates and yoga being fantastic mediums for achieving physical and emotional wellness.

Annie joins the Kimberley Physiotherapy team focusing solely on individual and group Clinical Pilates treatment regimes.
