What is The Thrive Programme®?

The Thrive Programme® is a unique, psychological training programme which teaches people to overcome the barriers that are stopping them from living the life they want. It is not psychotherapy or counselling, it is a training programme. It teaches emotional intelligence. It is a structured, easy to follow training programme which is delivered via the specially designed Thrive Manual with the guidance of a Thrive Consultant.

It is a combination of evidence based research, insightful quizzes, collective psychological theories and knowledge and direct questions all interspersed with a sprinkling of humour. It concentrates on building three fundamental core psychological strengths to give us strong emotional foundations.

These three strengths are;

  • The_Thrive_Programme_Portrait_MediumINTERNAL CONTROL versus control from external forces – i.e. a positive feeling of being able to influence your experiences, a belief in your own capabilities.
  • HIGH SELF ESTEEM i.e. feeling good about yourself.
  • REDUCED SOCIAL ANXIETY i.e. feeling good enough about yourself in social situations.

As Rob Kelly ( the author of The Thrive Programme®) says, “creating and maintaining these core psychological strengths won’t turn you into a superman or superwoman , but they will make you more powerful, more resilient and much happier.”


Everyone learns at their own pace but as a guideline this training programme can generally be delivered in 6 x 80 minute sessions depending on external factors and commitments of the trainee. The course is tailored to suit you, so you set the pace.

It is necessary to have some time between appointments to digest the information and practise new skills. There may be some helpful light homework to run through between appointments.

It can be delivered via Skype or at the Woodside Clinic (which is 37A Hermitage Road, Hitchin. SG5 1BY). But ideally a face to face meeting is beneficial.

I offer a free initial consultation enabling both parties to discuss the suitability of the programme and to explain more about the programme.

Your confidentiality is assured at all times and I abide by the Thrive Programme Code of Ethics.
