Dr Lorraine Maxwell

Lorraine qualified as a Physiotherapist in 1998 and obtained her PhD studying paediatric orthopaedics in 2004. Over the last 20 years she has worked in a wide range of paediatric and adult musculoskeletal areas both in Belfast and in London.


Erin Jackson

Originally from Canada, Erin came to Northern Ireland in 2006.  Erin’s lifelong passion for sport and love of anatomy led Erin to re-train as a Physiotherapist at Ulster University where she graduated with first class honours.  Since then has she worked within the NHS is various settings, including paediatrics, rheumatology, ICU, and MSK outpatients, and well as in the private sector.


I can't recommend Lorraine highly enough. Have attended her classes for many years and have also been to see her for physiotherapy. Enthusiastic yet approachable. Knowledgeable and thorough. Has helped me get control of back problems which at times had become overwhelming.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed both Pilates and Barre classes  over the past couple of years. They are excellent and definitely I’d highly recommend. 5***

"I can honestly say that it has changed my life for the better both physically and mentally.

Thank you all for the great work you do and I look forward to many more years ahead."
