Celia's Background and Physiotherapy journey

I grew up in Golden Bay attending Collingwood Area School until starting Otago University in 2007. Here I completed my Bachelor of Physiotherapy and started working as a Physiotherapist at Invercargill Hospital in 2011. This is where I discovered my passion for the area of Continence and Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. After two years of hospital work I moved with my partner to Adelaide in South Australia where I worked full time in private practice Physiotherapy for four years. This included Continence and Women's Health Physiotherapy, musculoskeletal injuries, teaching ante-natal and post-natal Pilates classes, providing educational presentations to local groups (such as GP's, Women's groups, gyms and ante-natal classes).

While living in sunny Adelaide I also completed my post-graduated certificate in Continence and Women's Health at Curtin University in Perth. I loved learning and working in this area of Physiotherapy at my job in Adelaide city and the more rural Adelaide hills. After leaving Adelaide in 2016 my partner and I spent 6 months travelling before moving back home to New Zealand.

During my time working as a Physiotherapist I have treated women through all life stages including pregnancy, post-natal recovery (including mastitis care), menopause, osteoporosis, pre- and post-operative care. As a qualified Pilates instructor I am experienced in teaching specialised pregnancy, post-pregnancy and rehabilitation classes. I love working with women at any stage of their life to assist them in optimising their pelvic and overal health whether it be to improve bladder and bowel problems, stay active during pregnancy or return to sport post-natally.

Outside of Physiotherapy I love to ride and compete in equestrian events, run around the beautiful trails here, cook and read a good book. Recently I am having lots of fun having started mountain bike riding and playing hockey!

It is very exciting to be joining Sharon as part of the Restore Physiotherapy team and continue to provide specialised pelvic floor physiotherapy care to the community. It is so great to be living back in New Zealand and to call Nelson home!
