Celia Shiles | 2012 – 2013

Celia grew up on a dairy farm in the West Country but moved to London 4 years ago to study medicine. She did an intercalated degree in Neuroscience, where she discovered that she didn’t enjoy pipetting mouse brain into test tubes but loved the Psychiatry side of Neuroscience.

She found Extreme Psychiatry incredibly helpful for learning to take histories, as well as a warm, friendly place to go on a Tuesday night. She can often be seen cycling around London on a very battered bicycle. And in her holidays, she likes to work on snail farms, bee farms and look after children in France.
