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.

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 :-)

Shaji Devadasan

Indian Head Massage therapist
(Member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapist)

I am a qualified practitioner in Indian Head Massage therapy. I have been working as a registered nurse since 2000. My ambition is to practice natural medicine which I began studying two years ago.
This therapy is an integral part of the Ayurvedic healing system, which uses a variety of techniques to massage soft tissues. Indian Head Massage not only helps to achieve a state of calm, peace and tranqulity but also it can provide lots of positive health benefits to a person.
For me, it is a great privilege to work with Barbican Therapy Centre. I have Diploma in Indian Head Massage therapy and I am studying a Masters in Integrative Medicine (MIM) with the Quantum University, Honolulu, Hawaii to explore more in natural medicine.

Rachael Crook

Mindfulness, Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage and Holistic Massage Therapist

Born and raised in Plymouth, I am excited working as part of a professional team at The Barbican Therapy Centre.
I have always had a passion for helping others. In today’s society we can become overwhelmed with work commitments, home life and life experiences (good or bad) that can all have an impact on the individual in which we have become. It is very easy to forget the person we once were. I am here to support you into finding that inner self you once knew existed, as a holistic therapist I will support you to maintain that focus for the ongoing future.
As a fully qualified holistic therapist I can assist you with a number of treatments such as: Mindfulness based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Aromatherapy Massage, Indian Head Massage and Holistic Massage. Using any one of these techniques with a professional manner on an individual basis we will work together to gain positive focus. Your well being is as much important to me as it is to you. I look forward to meeting you.
