One You Plymouth is part of Livewell Southwest offering support and advice to people who are looking to take the first steps to a healthier lifestyle. Slowly growing over the years we now have a team of over 30 people, from admin staff to help book your appointment to practitioners who can offer you the ongoing support and advice that you need to develop a healthier lifestyle, offering advice and support around being Smoke Free, Eating Well, Healthier Lifestyles, Moving More and Drinking Less.
We have appointments for you to attend all across Plymouth running 6 days a week including Saturdays and evening appointments on Wednesdays so we should be able to find an appointment at a time to suit your needs.

All welcome – please just contact us to find out more.
Our team at our recent Away Day during our Paper Aeroplane Challenge
Last year we helped support over 1000 Plymouth residents to take the first steps to living a healthier lifestyle and offered them ongoing support to maintain those changes.
Our staff come from a variety of backgrounds to enable us to offer you the best support which is tailored to your needs.
This Time We Meet…
My name is Lydia Helyer, I am an Advanced Health Improvement Practitioner within the Wellbeing team at Livewell South West, and a qualified occupational therapist.
At the moment my time is split 50/50 between providing stop smoking support and vaccinating at Derriford hospital. I am passionate about all areas of health improvement and trauma informed practice; I have a professional background in substance misuse and (as a new Mum myself) I am particularly keen to support expectant Mothers. I do my best to “practice what I preach” and I am currently using the “Active 10” app to increase my activity levels during lockdown and Cheezifit pilates (over Zoom) are the highlight of my week.
I am proud to be part of the vaccination roll-out that has drastically reduced COVID-19 rates in Plymouth. It has been great to see so many people coming through the doors. We do our best to make the vaccination centres as accessible as possible with a lift, a translator service, and screens for privacy. The system has been significantly streamlined so we no longer have the very long queues either. Needless to say, I have had both of my jabs!
