Since graduating, Anaïs has continuously been investing in her professional development to expand her knowledge and to improve her skills as a paediatric physiotherapist. After finishing the ‘Psychomotor development and remedial teaching for children Course’ in Belgium, Anaïs decided to move to London.
As a next step in her career, she was eager to gain experience abroad and looking for opportunities to make significant contributions in her field. In 2019, Anaïs completed the postgraduate MAES Therapy ‘Movement Analysis and Education Strategies Course’ and became a member of the London MAES team.
“Working at MAES Therapy allows me to keep expanding my knowledge and understanding of Cerebral Palsy to the smallest details. MAES Therapy made me understand how I can treat on a higher level by focusing on how the child’s brain is coordinating the body, instead of focusing solely on the child’s physical and secondary symptoms.
The approach has taught me to observe and analyse from a different perspective and to look at Cerebral Palsy in a holistic way. With MAES Therapy we create opportunities for children to explore and learn new coordination patterns they are very unlikely to develop on their own. Being able to help children to keep developing their repertoire of movements and coordination is aMAESing.”
