What is The Thrive Programme® ?

The Thrive Programme® is a life-changing course that empowers you with the skills, insights and resources in order to take control of your life, bring out the very best of yourself and enjoy everything that you do.

Life-changing? Absolutely!

The Thrive Programme® is a totally fresh approach to achieving lasting happiness, health and success.

Almost every issue or problem that a person can suffer from, is driven by psychological and/or emotional forces. Our programme teaches you how to manage your thoughts, emotions and beliefs so you can be in control of your life.

No matter who you are, where you are from or what your past is, everyone has the ability to realise potential and live life to the fullest. Anxiety, low confidence and underachieving will become a thing of the past, permanently replaced with a desire and capability to thrive.

The Thrive Programme® is suitable for all and if you feel that life is merely ticking over for you, The Thrive Programme® will enable you to master the skills and resources you need so that you won't get anxious, stressed or depressed - whatever bumps in the road you encounter. If however, you are already suffering from depression or other mental health concerns (e.g. phobias, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, confidence issues, weight problems, social anxiety), The Thrive Programme® is a quick, effective way to overcome these for good, even if you have found other forms of therapy or treatment to be ineffective for you.

The Thrive Programme® enables anyone to feel confident, enthusiastic and optimistic about their life.

How was The Thrive Programme® Created?

In 2005 Rob Kelly – a psychotherapist with over 25 years clinical experience – began testing a variety of simple psychological interventions he had been developing, with the help of a researcher at Cambridge University.

For some time, Rob had been disillusioned with traditional forms of therapy: they were often drawn-out, stressful and expensive for the client and all too frequently, not that effective.

Despite this, he did however manage to help a number of people make incredible changes in their lives. Rob pinpointed exactly how they were creating their symptoms and problems and showed them how they could overcome them WITHOUT the need for therapy.

Rob has mapped out the cognitive processes and thinking styles that are linked to the limiting beliefs people held about themselves and their lives. He is confident that it wasn’t the experiences of the past that causes the symptoms, stress, anxiety and conflict, but the BELIEFS about those experiences held in the present.

As a much more effective way to overcome psychological problems, The Thrive Programme® was born.

Over the last ten years, Rob and his team have moved further and further away from the ‘medical model’ (waiting until someone is sick or ill and then trying to fix them) towards a ‘health model’ (giving people the skills and resources to manage their own mental well-being, so that they don’t become sick or ill). This is now the core element of the programme.

Rob has now trained more than 100 Thrive Consultants® and with their help, tens of thousands of people all around the world are now living their lives to the full.

Rob continues to undertake research and further develop his insights and skills. The Thrive Programme® is now being used in schools, prisons, organisations, businesses, psychiatric hospitals and sports clubs. The books are currently being translated into several languages.


You can undertake the programme in a number of different ways: by yourself at home with one of the Thrive Programme® Manuals, face to face or via skype with one of our Licensed Thrive Consultants®, or by joining us on one of our events, workshops and bootcamps. However you undertake the course, it takes on average 6-8 weeks to complete.
