Janet Taylor

Registered Homeopath

Homeopathy is a holistic medicine in which treatment is tailored to the individual. It uses natural remedies to stimulate your body’s ability to heal itself.

I see people of all ages with a broad range of physical, emotional and mental symptoms. I like to spend time listening to your story and your medical history. You know better than anyone else - from first hand experience- about your medical condition. I see your treatment as a journey where we will walk alongside each other to try to get to the core of what's causing your ill health. My aim is to help you regain the best level of health possible.

I qualified from The School of Homeopathy in Stroud and am a Registered Member of the Society of Homeopaths.

Scott Lester Woods

Hypnotherapist and Peak Performance Coach.

My passion for learning about the mind started in the corporate world training and managing sales staff. I would use different psychological techniques available to dramatically optimise their performance in the work arena. However after further training in Solution Focused Hypnotherapy, working personally with individuals over the last few years has proved much more rewarding and fun! Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool designed to help clients increase the quality of their lives by living life on THEIR terms. We can respectively draw a line in the sand to your past and look towards an aspiring future.
Whether that’s reducing/eliminating anxiety and depression or increasing your confidence and sports performance -- I can help. By using the best tools and techniques available my aim is to work together in helping you regain control of your thinking patterns/emotions and bring out the best of you.
So call now for a free consultation. I look forward to working together!

Pete Luce


I have worked as a full time hypnotherapy practitioner since 1994, following a previous career in mental health nursing. I trained with the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy- recognised as a post-graduate level training. I have continued to enlarge my knowledge by studying with expert practitioners from the UK and America, and with the University of Plymouth.

My style is down to earth and practical. I believe that the mind, like the body, has a natural capacity to heal itself once any obstacles to healing are removed. I use hypnosis as a tool for giving clients more control over their own reactions, feelings, thinking patterns, memories and relationships, in order to achieve a happier life. My aim is to work as quickly as possible to get clients to where they can continue to progress without further professional help.

Jonathan Shaddock

Holistic Therapist

Having returned to my home city of Plymouth after a number of years in Dorset, I am delighted to be working at the Barbican Centre with a great team who are committed to helping people to restore in one way and another.

For many years I have been helping people to live more happily in their own skin. I am trained in talking therapies, massage and sports therapies as well as meditation and guided relaxation.

In each of these ways I am committed to helping people to return to the relaxed state we were designed for. So if you are stressed or struggling to find your way home to happiness or if you have simply pulled a muscle in sport or everyday activity, I am here to help.

Simply get in touch and we can design the best way to help you in your current situation. I look forward to meeting with you. Meanwhile, enjoy your day :-)
