The Southwell Wellbeing Centre Team

Claire Tavernor - Founder

Claire opened Southwell Wellbeing Centre in April this year with a big dream to inspire, motivate and encourage others to ‘be kind to yourself.’  ​There was and still is a very valid and genuine reason for this.

Claire has always had a love and passion for exercise but tended to push herself to the limit all of the time and regularly suffered with chronic pain or injury.

Claire realises the importance of self care, that is not selfish or indulgent but massively important. As a busy mum if she is not right then the whole family is out of sync. Claire stresses that we all need to learn to love and care for ourselves more. Be kind to yourself is something she encourages for both her clients and the team at The Southwell Wellbeing Centre.

Paul’s Holistic Massage sessions are tailored to each client, drawing on his wealth of experience and toolbox of techniques acquired since training and qualifying with the Massage Training Institute in Bristol over 25 years ago. Treatments can include flowing strokes, subtle touch, deep tissue work, stretching, mobilising and more. His intention is to find the right combination of movement and massage for each client, to relax and re-energise, and in doing so ease everyday tensions and help towards the healing of deeper problems. He draws on years of advanced training, ranging from Darien Pritchard’s ‘Rhythm Mobility’: innovative rhythmical techniques for release, mobilising and energising, to the incredibly subtle, muscle-melting touch of David Lauterstein.

Nick Clark – Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist

I have been practicing as a psychotherapist and counsellor for over a decade, much of that time in a clinical environment and here in Southwell. My qualification is as an Integrative therapist which means that I may use a variety of techniques and practices including CBT and Mindfulness to help my clients according to their individual needs and requirements. This suits my person-centred, informal counselling style which I find is a great way of dealing with all sorts of issues from anxiety, depression and stress  to phobias, relationship and bereavement crises. I am also qualified as a hypnotherapist so that can be a useful tool employed either as a separate treatment or part of the counselling process, if required.

I am aware that not all my clients have the same needs or are receptive to the same techniques so I use whichever  the client is most comfortable with in order to give the best chance of success.

Caroline – Medical Herbalist

I have over 5 years’ experience in private practice as a Primary Healthcare Practitioner using Herbal Medicine, within Nottinghamshire.  I was driven to qualify as a Medical Herbalist; obtaining my BSc Hons at Lincoln University in 2013, due to my own serious health issues with kidney damage, and feeling disappointed at the lack of optimistic choices orthodox medicine presented. After experiencing the benefits of Herbal Medicine first hand and being able to move into a better state of health and well-being, it was only natural to take my professional development in this direction.   I am part of The National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH), My previous work experience includes working for McMillan Cancer support, providing care within the community of Sheffield, along with working within a centre for eating disorders where I also provided my skills as a holistic therapist. From this I have been able to integrate the knowledge I obtained during this time, into my practice, expanding my knowledge and awareness as a practitioner.       Within my practice I combine all of my skills and experience to provide a bespoke treatment that is tailored specifically for your individual needs and requirements. This means that no consultation is the same, and like your transition into better health, your treatment will change with you, moving you into a desirable state of health and well-being, both physically and emotionally.

Appointments with Caroline: Available Wednesdays 9 - 6pm at Southwell Wellbeing Centre by appointment.

Other appointment days may be available on request.
