Living with ankylosing spondylitis

Living with Ankylosing Spondylitis was never part of the plan

I was busy doing other things when painful symptoms began to interrupt my life.

Getting that strange-sounding diagnosis felt like a relief at first, as if the mystery was finally solved and I could get back to living.

But as reality set in and the pain didn’t go away, I realised my story with AS was only just beginning.

Ive often wished I could reach back through time and reassure that former version of me, so lost in pain and scared of what lay ahead. 

Because ultimately, things got better for me! I found my way back to a life I love.

Not perfectly pain-free, but close enough. And so much better than I dreamed was possible.

There was no magical cure that turned everything around for me. It was a process of trial and error over many years that allowed me to develop a unique lifestyle plan for myself that actually worked. 

Now I’m passionate about helping you get out of pain and on with the rest of your life 

As a functional health coach I help others living with Ankylosing Spondylitis and Axial Spondyloarthritis shortcut their way back to a better life, working in partnership to get relief from symptoms and reimagine more positive futures.

The one-size-fits-all approach simply doesn’t work. Together we design a personalised plan aimed at reducing your symptoms and slowing progression. All on your terms, because the best expert, when it comes to your health, is you.

Coaching provides you with the support, resources and encouragement you need to start taking small steps back to a life you love. Learning to listen to your body and trust your decisions, it’s only a matter of time until you’re ready to tackle the rest on your own.

It’s time to unlock your blueprint for a better life with AS.

“Working with Anne-Marie was a life changing experience; helping me find ways to improve my health by creating a sustainable, personal path to well living. She is extremely personable, her softly-spoken manner quickly has you at ease, possessing an ability to not only listen, but to truly hear even what’s not being said. Anne-Marie is an intuitive coach; trustworthy, always encouraging, and a patient and insightful guide. She is kind, understanding but still kept me very accountable.

I highly recommend Anne-Marie. She’s the complete package: focused, reflective, practical and supportive.”
