What is The Thriving?

Before describing the programme itself lets consider what it means to Thrive.

News and social media frequently highlight stories of people who have bounced back from adversity.  Often these people are portrayed as being special or unique in some way but, in fact, anyone can learn the psychological skills they employ.

A plant or animal is described as thriving when it is growing and living as best it can within the environment it inhabits. When a person is thriving, it’s because they have psychological skills, resources and attitude to flourish in every area of their life.  Thriving individuals overcome or avoid symptoms such as anxiety, phobias and depression.

What is The Thrive Programme?

It is a unique psychological training programme that teaches you everything you need to know to start thriving.  It is the culmination of over twenty-five years of studying people: what makes them happy, sad, sick, or healthy.

The programme was developed by Rob Kelly drawing on his extensive experience as a forensic psychologist and hypnotist.

Using The Thrive Programme you will learn the self-insights and skills you need to turn your life around.  The important thing is that and change comes from YOU once you have the skills you need.  Think about it, from childhood you were taught everything from how to brush you teeth, tie your shoelaces, read and write etc.  But you were not taught how to take control of your beliefs, thinking, feelings and imagination!



How Does it Work?

95% or more of what you need to do in order to change your life comes from really understanding your psychological make-up.  So, do you need to build confidence, beat anxiety/ depression, get control of a phobia, or cure an addiction?   The Thrive Programme will teach you how to achieve all this in as little as 6 to 8 weeks.

This is REAL, evidence based, psychology and it will, if you choose to apply it, change your life completely.

Whatever your aims The Thrive Programme is the very best way of taking back control of your life.
