The Southwell Wellbeing Centre Team

Claire Tavernor - Founder

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 is a Level 3 PT and is keen to work with clients to show how you can work smarter rather than harder to benefit both mind and body.

Claire realises the importance of self care, that is not selfish or indulgent but massively important. Claire is a doTERRA wellness advocate. 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.

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.
