Thrive – “The Thrive Programme”

Thrive is a revolutionary psychological training programme that equips people with the self-awareness and in-depth knowledge of fundamental psychological principles and skills that they need to flourish in life. When people are thriving, they are living their life to the full. They find it easier to be resilient, to stay happy and healthy, to be successful and to achieve their goals. This unique programme has been developed by Rob Kelly and has been founded upon psychological research and Rob’s clinical experience with thousands of clients.
Many people suffering from common psychological and health-related conditions believe that their symptoms are happening to them and they, consequently, feel completely powerless to improve their situation. This, however, just isn’t true! By joining together new research and unique clinical insights, Thrive demonstrates how most symptoms and problems in life are actually created or exacerbated by people’s limiting belief systems and thinking styles. It enables people to really understand the importance of their cognitive processes and to realise that the way they think, feel and react to situations has a profound effect upon how they experience life. Through undertaking the programme, people then learn how to permanently change their limiting beliefs and unhelpful thinking styles and develop the psychological skills needed to Thrive.
The assertions and explanations given within the programme are fully backed up by established research. This, together with the exercises and examples used throughout, demonstrates to people the veracity of the information given, and helps them to apply the principles to themselves. Working through the programme can be likened to assembling a jigsaw; once you have the pieces and understand how they combine to influence the way you think, it is easy to see the full picture and understand exactly what you need to do in order to Thrive.

Why is Thrive unique?
The Thrive Programme brings together scientific research and years of clinical experience in a unique and dynamic manner that is easily accessible to all.
Although many other training courses and techniques do focus upon some similar concepts to Thrive, most don’t go into the same in-depth detail of the underlying fundamentals nor integrate the knowledge in such a comprehensive manner. It is because Thrive trainees are helped to attain a very high degree of self-awareness, that they are able to clearly see what they need to do in order to ‘get better’, and why they are then also willing to put in as much effort as is required.
Unlike some other courses Thrive is empowering because it is understandable, accessible and non-magical. Thrive is not therapy or a treatment programme where something is ‘done to’ a person. It is all about empowering people to make the necessary changes for themselves. The Thrive Programme aims to provide people with evidence and make a rational argument, so that they can comes to their own reasoned conclusion. This also helps them to take responsibility for making any changes and build a sense of personal power.

How is The Thrive Programme delivered?
Thrive is a structured, easy to follow training programme, which is delivered via the specially designed Thrive Book.

What symptoms and problems can Thrive assist people with?
Since Thrive focuses upon targeting and changing a person’s underlying limiting belief systems and thinking styles, which are causing or contributing to their symptoms and problems, it has been successful with a huge range of conditions and problems, including: Anxiety, Depression, Low self-esteem and confidence issues, Fears and phobias (including emetophobia, fear of flying, needle phobia, fear of heights, agoraphobia, etc.), Obsessions and OCD, Eating disorders, M.E. post viral fatigue and chronic fatigue, premature ejaculation, vaginismus, inorgasmia, chronic pain and much much more.

Mastering Emotional Intelligence with the Thrive Programme

Emotional Intelligence Can Improve Your Productivity

“Effective Emotional Intelligence (EI) skills drive deeper engagement across the enterprise, including both employee and customer engagement, leading to greater commercial success,” Accessing the Triple Bottom Line through Emotional Intelligence.

“With 70 per cent of customer interactions grounded in emotional factors, it’s imperative that frontline staff are measured and developed in areas of EI allowing them to exceed customer expectations and boost company sales”.

“The ability to connect emotionally with customers is the key to enhanced performance and engaged employees on the frontline”

Most businesses tend to think of intelligence (IQ) as knowledge or cognitive ability, the more intelligent the work force, particularly in leaders, the better the business will perform. However, this is not the case. There is another kind of intelligence, as important or even more important than IQ, actively operating and impacting on businesses.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is an ability to be aware, to feel and to respond to emotions, both within oneself and in relation to others. This is a phenomenal quality which can be learnt. Emotional intelligence of the management and the staff has been proven to greatly increase productivity.

There can exist a big gap between how a business perceives the quality of its customer care and the actual experience of how the customer experiences it.

“Organisations that are socially and emotionally intelligent focused on relationships internally and externally will be the market leaders.”

The new currency of effective leaders is their emotional fitness.

In terms of leadership, Emotional Intelligence is associated with the ability to handle complex relationships, manage stress and to make better decisions, Rode et al, 2017 observed. EI is particularly important for individuals as they ascend the managerial ranks when these more advanced skills are required.

Leaders and managers are expected to have good leadership skills. Yet, we have all encountered leaders who don’t have these skills, who lack emotional intelligence.

It is never too late to acquire EI. It can be learnt in a relatively short space of time, be it one to one or in small group sessions. It is not only large companies that are now focusing on corporate wellbeing; SMEs also are now reaping the rewards of an emotionally intelligent workforce.

My daughter has a terror of vomiting

Sometimes she wakes up in the night panicking that she is going to get sick

My nine-year-old daughter has always had a fear of vomit. She was triggered recently by a girl vomiting in her class. The next morning she wanted me to bring her brother to school first. She felt sick and was terrified she was going to vomit. She had what looked similar to a panic attack. She was physically shaking. Nothing could distract her.

Most nights before bed she feels sick, looks at the mirror and sticks her tongue out and asks, “Is my tongue white? Am I pale?” She sometimes feels sick during the day. Recently, I got a call from the principal to say she was sick and was very pale. I explained to the principal that she sometimes worries that she is going to vomit. I got on the phone to her and asked, “Is this the worry bug back again?” I explained that I had a meeting but will have my phone on, and if she still feels sick to return to the principal’s office. She returned to the class and was fine.
