About Diane Nivern
Diane Nivern is one of the UK’s top facialists, skincare experts and holistic therapists since 1995.

Her clientele includes many major celebrities from music performers, film, TV and sport. (See the article on Diane Nivern’s work with Robbie Williams Click Here)
She is a regular contributor to TV, Radio & magazines.
Diane has always had a keen interest in skincare. Much to the amusement of her older sisters she would spend her Saturday job money on creams, lotions and potions to begin caring for her skin. So began a lifelong passion for effective skincare.
Diane became interested in holistic therapies as a result of enduring rheumatoid arthritis from the age of four. At the age of 18 she was severely affected and condemned by doctors to an “inevitable” future in a wheelchair. At this point she began to seek an alternative to the drugs which had so far failed. She discovered Aromatherapy and Colonic Hydrotherapy and their ability to reduce pain and inflammation.
This started Diane’s fascinating journey back to health and mobility.
Diane Nivern trained and qualified as a Holistic & Clinical Aromatherapist in 1994 when she established the clinic.
Diane wanted to make holistic therapies and effective skincare treatments available to the wider general public in an approachable, jargon free and enjoyable setting.
This was over 25 years ago before the current awareness of organic, holistic, food intolerances, never mind aromatherapy massage (which used to get a nudge-nudge-wink-wink response back then).
She trained with the London School of Aromatherapy under the principle Patricia Davis, founder of the International Federation of Aromatherapists.
Diane has continued to study and train in a variety of therapies including Advanced Facial Skincare techniques, medical skin needling, Chemical Skin Peels, colon hydrotherapy / colonic irrigation, nutrition, advanced anatomy & physiology, Indian Head massage, seated acupressure massage, advanced massage techniques, cranio-sacral therapy. She is also a Master Practitioner of Usui Reiki and a member of the Institute of Professional Colon Hydrotherapists.
Diane has 20 years experience of working with some of the music industry’s top performers, actors & sportsmen providing therapeutic services backstage and on location as well as privately at the clinic. For ten years she was massage therapist to the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) when they were in the UK as well as being called in by Premiership clubs to look after their top players.
Diane continually researches and trains in the latest advances in skincare products and techniques to offer her clients the most effective treatments.
She is a Skinceuticals Specialist Practitioner trained and qualified to offer full range of specialist facial skincare treatments and skin peels.
Her philosophy is to facilitate the restoration of healthy, radiant, natural looking skin. Diane’s WHOLE PERSON approach incorporates good diet, nutrition, an effective cosmeceutical skincare regime, results driven facial treatments and where appropriate the subtle use of medical aesthetic procedures such as dermal fillers, skin boosters, muscle relaxants (botox) and Plasma Beamwave soft surgery technology (administered by Dr Joshua Nivern MBChB BSc. see below)
Looking great incorporates well-being, a skincare routine using clinically PROVEN cosmeceuticals with appropriate results driven facial treatments.
Any medical aesthetics can then be used subtly to give an overall natural WOW factor!
You want to look radiant and make your friends wonder WHAT you’ve done, not KNOW what you’ve done!
