How was The Thrive Programme created?

The Thrive Programme was created by Rob Kelly, a therapist with 25 years of experience. During this time Rob has helped thousands of people overcome their problems and symptoms.

Conventional therapy is often a long, drawn out and stressful process, not to mention expensive. It usually involves a patient having to re-visit very emotional and uncomfortable memories, talking through painful experiences in order to reach a point of closure, understanding and resolution.

It was Rob’s dedication and passion for his work that led him to a moment of inspiration. It occurred to him that maybe it wasn’t necessary to have to travel back and relive the anguish and pain associated with those memories. Maybe there was a much simpler, more effective and less unpleasant way to get better?

With the help of a researcher from Cambridge University, Rob mapped out all of the cognitive processes and thinking styles that were linked to the limiting beliefs that people held about themselves and their lives.

He discovered that it wasn’t the experiences of the past that caused the symptoms, stress, anxiety and conflict, but the BELIEFS about those experiences that were being held right now, today.

It confirmed there was indeed a much better way to overcome psychological problems and illness.

The Thrive Programme was born.

This amazing discovery changed everything we thought we knew about why people suffer from psychological symptoms like depression, phobias, anxieties, sexual problems, confidence, self-esteem issues, eating disorders, emetophobia, shyness, social anxiety, OCD, self-harming, post viral fatigue and a number of other debilitating conditions.

If your problems aren’t anchored in the past at all, but are actually caused by your beliefs today, then you have the ability to take control of your life and learn how to thrive!

With the help of around 100 Thrive consultants, thousands of people all around the world have now learned the skills and insights needed to thrive. As more and more people globally have access to the programme Rob and his team are continually collecting data and feedback. A constant search for the most up to date research allows them to refine and improve the programme on a regular basis.
