For physiotherapy by the highest rated Physios in Plymouth, come to Plym Physio

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.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognition – the way we perceive and think

Behaviour – the way we react and behave

Therapy – coaching and other methods to change our perception and behaviour

For all our achievements as humans, as individuals we can be vulnerable. We are affected by everything that happens during our lives; our families, childhood, living environment, school, work, relationships or life experiences, whether positive or negative. They shape us as individuals. These experiences can make us happy and strong, but some wound and scar. They leave negative thoughts and feelings, generating a cocktail of body chemicals that can cause depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and other mental health issues. Sometimes we need help to decipher the labyrinth of our own minds. This is where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can support you.

Using proven techniques the basic goals of CBT are:

  • To change the way the client perceives things into a more positive or appropriate way
  • To alter the clients behaviour to create more positive outcomes

As a Holistic Therapist practising CBT our aim is not tell the client what to think or to do. We instead guide the individual to develop practical strategies that work for them.

what do our clients say?


I have suffered from a bad back and stiff neck and shoulders for many years . Regular visits to PlynPhysio keep me moving and at work – I can always get an appointment when I need one which is good to know. I also attend Nicky’s Pilates class which is brilliant, good fun and helps to keep me supple. I recommend Plym Physio to all my friends and family for friendly and effective physiotherapist.
