About the presenter
Florence Kelly is a senior Accredited Exercise Physiologist, and a Yoga and Meditation Teacher. Whilst spending two years working in musculoskeletal rehab, she was drawn to complex patients with invisible illnesses; a group who were all too often dismissed or put in the “too hard basket”.
Having spent the last 10 years in the private practice sector, Florence has developed her skills in providing care to clients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, central sensitivity, chronic migraine, Fibromyalgia, EDS, chronic pain and POTS.
She has worked in various clinics including the ESSA award winning practice: Active Health Clinic. She has recently co-founded her own practice: Connect Mind Body with psychologist Paula Sladdin where she continues her work with these fascinating conditions using a biopsychosocial model of care.
