Who am I?
Hi, I am Celine, I am french and i come from a sunny city called Marseille in the south of France. When I was a kid, I wanted be a doctor paediatrician so I could treat and help everyone as young as newborn up to the elderly. When I was 12, my own doctor paediatrician even promised me that I could take over his business when I’m older. However, growing up I realised that I wasn’t very keen to help people with the use of medication all the time so I started to look into “Alternative therapies”. In the mean time, following a couple of sports injuries I have been recommended to see an Osteopath. I fell in love with the profession pretty much straight away. Osteopaths could provide care for patients by using a more natural approach with a wide range of techniques and manipulations, they tend to spend more one to one time with their patients and they could treat patients of all ages including newborns, pregnant women, adults, teenagers, the Elderly, sport people… So i decided that Osteopathy was the best fitting profession for me.
So after getting my french Baccalauréat in the United States, I decided to come and study in the UK at the European School of Osteopathy (Maidstone/Kent), a well known Osteopathic School offering an integrated Master in Osteopathy.
Why England? That is a good question! After living in the United States throughout college, I wanted to improve my English (I still however can’t seem to loose my french accent), discover another country, be within Europe to be closer to my family and have the opportunity to have an international diploma in Osteopathy.
So how is England treating me? Well, I do have to admit that the weather, driving on the other side of the road and having milk in my tea took a little while to get used to but I have now been in England for 7 years so I am getting used to living the British life.
Since graduated in 2014, I have worked as an Osteopath in three Osteopathic clinics in Kent. I am now relocating in Southend-on-Sea.
Along side being an Osteopath, I enjoy running, playing the piano, participating in sports events and I am a lover for outdoors activities whenever time allows it (skiing, windsurfing, hiking, walking, swimming, white water rafting…)
