Karen Mayes Paediatric Physiotherapy will offer a comprehensive initial assessment; providing the optimal balance between and clinic and home environment; or in the comfort of your own home. This will be followed by detailed feedback to parents and carers. We can then work together to set 'child centered' therapy goals and plan individualised therapy sessions to meets your child's needs, working alongside other health professionals if appropriate, or simply offer advice and reassurance if that is all that is required. Treatment is tailored to the individual child and their family, and is designed to help them reach their maximum potential.

Karen has a passion for inclusion and inclusive activity, and believes that therapy should be an integral part of a child's daily routine and not a chore! She strongly believes that the child, and their family, should be central to goal setting and treatment planning in order to achieve optimal results.

ALL babies, children and young people are important. They each have their own unique personality and potential, and they deserve the best possible care to support their health and development and achieve their goals to gain the best possible outcomes.
