Claire opened Southwell Wellbeing Centre in April 2019 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.

‘I am passionate about helping clients take time out from their busy, and often stressful lives. I never tire of seeing their tension melt away. It has become more and more apparent to me just how important it is to give clients the time and comfort they deserve to truly unwind and recharge their batteries.
I undertake professional development each year, attending courses and workshops to expand and enhance the knowledge and skills that I have acquired over almost 30 years.’

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.
Angela became a devotee of Bowen Therapy many years ago, when her osteopath began practising the technique on her as an alternative treatment for chronic lower back pain. Since then Bowen has been Angela’s go-to treatment to address all sorts of conditions, not just chronic and acute back pain, but also hayfever, sinusitis, and clicky-jaw issues! She felt so passionate about Bowen and the benefits it could bring that, once time and other work commitments permitted, she was determined to study the technique herself. Now a fully qualified practitioner, she is delighted to be able to offer the holistic experience of Bowen to others: her passion for this relaxing and restorative therapy, and the satisfaction and joy she derives from helping others through its medium, grows by the day!
