At Plym Physio our ethos is simple ‘helping you help yourself’ but it refers to more than just physical recovery. Mental health plays a role in our ability to recover, keep strong and stay healthy. When we are experiencing an increase of stress, anxiety or other difficulties in our mental health, we often put our physical health on the back burner. This is where CBT can help.

Sometimes we need help to decipher the labyrinth of our own minds. This is where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can support you.
