Hmmm how did I (a German conductor trained in the UK) get here starting my own CE business in British Columbia? I am not quite sure but I think it had something to do with me not wanting to leave Canada, the pure beauty of the landscape in BC and of course some great parents out here wanting to make CE part of their lives.

I am Anne, mostly known in the English-speaking world as Anna (Aenna). I am professionally in the conductive education business for around 7 years (if you include the three years of training at NICE). Personally, I came into touch with CE 14 years ago through my younger brother who has Cerebral Palsy. Since the first time I stepped my foot into his CE classroom - at that time - in Budapest, I was fascinated with it. I have observed for so many years what a difference CE can make and feel lucky to be part of it. I have met so many great people along the way who have helped to keep this passion alive if not making it strengthening it.

This blog is intended to document my journey setting up an independent Conductive Education business as well as my experiences gained being a conductor.


Despite my great contacts out here in BC I have little illusion that this will be a slow process and has to be started small in order to build up something solid, something good. Therefore, I will start with individual session mainly in the clients’ home to bring it to the place where it should be happening. Primarily guiding how to implement a conductive upbringing at home.
The initial consultation will be free of charge in order to access if CE is appropriate and useful for the child or adult with a Movement Disorder and their family. With increasing client base, it is aimed to establish conductive groups that will suit the current demand while making sense for each individual’s growth.

That’s the plan and I will keep you posted on how this goes!

  3. Dear Anne,

    I just discovered your blog through James's. Great news for all the B.C. families - I can only imagine how excited James is about your arrival. I was lucky to spend 2x 6 weeks there ages ago and soooo loved every bit of it! Great place and lovely people. Good on you for going for it!!! 10 years later I am in Ireland walking in the same shoes as yourself- "starting from scratch" as a self employed conductor. Wishing you lots of success and fun- will be following your adventure :)! Hajni
