Charlie and George are Thriving at University after mental health struggles

We’ve all seen some of the shocking statistics on the mental health of University students – so it was great to receive two very positive stories recently from our Thrive Consultant James Woodworth.

Both feature young men who have recently completed The Thrive Programme – a simple training course designed by expert Rob Kelly to help anyone take control of their mental health – after suffering from anxiety and depression.

I came to you for help with my IBS and Anxiety because I was struggling a lot with it at University. I thought you might like to know that I successfully graduated from University with a 2:1 and I have now gone to another University to study for a Masters in Economics.

Charlie: "You have helped me so much..."

Charlie: “You have helped me so much…”

I thought you might like to know because without your input none of this would have been possible. What you and The Thrive Programme did for me was nothing short of a miracle and it completely transformed my life for the better.

My IBS and anxiety is now under control and I can aim for what I want to achieve in my life, a fact I thought would not have been possible when I first came to you for help.

I cannot put into words my gratitude towards you and the Programme as a whole, you have helped me so much and I thank you dearly for that.

Kind Regards, Charlie

On the verge of being kicked out of Oxford University for poor attendance, my family and I decided it was time to try something else to help me conquer the depression that I had fallen into. It was at this point that we turned to The Thrive Programme.

George: “I am now on my way to graduating with a First Class Honors degree from Oxford”

Six months have passed since then and I am now on my way to graduating with a First Class Honors degree from Oxford, something I simply wouldn’t have believed possible back at the start of the academic year.

I spent 8 weeks working with James, progressing through the Thrive principles, which focused primarily on me changing the limiting beliefs and unhelpful thinking styles that were holding me back so I could begin to think positively and effectively once again.

Along every step of the way James was so attentive to my every need and would never hesitate to provide extra resources and help whenever I felt I needed them.

For anyone reading this who has found themselves struggling, as I was, in the high pressured environment of University life, I urge you to go through The Thrive Programme.

With the willingness on your end to want to change, it really can make mind blowing changes to the way in which you live your life.

All the best, George
