How The Thrive Programme® resolves symptoms
The Thrive Programme® gets right to the heart of where symptoms are formed in order to banish them. It offers a completely different, fresh approach to having good mental health.
Whether you are struggling with anxieties, fears, insecurities or a psychosomatic symptom, the programme goes deeper than just helping you to reduce or manage your issue: you can completely eradicate it....and permanently. The programme will teach you how to Thrive, and a by-product of thriving is that you do not create symptoms and anxieties: you feel good about yourself, you feel in control and have good coping skills for when life becomes more challenging.
You might be thinking "I just want to resolve my problem, I don't want a complete overhaul of my life!" Give me two minutes to explain to you how the Thrive Programme can help and why you'll gain so much more than you ever expected.
SYMPTOMS DON’T HAPPEN ‘TO’ YOU
Many people believe that their symptom is just a stand-alone issue, something quite separate to the way they operate generally in life; a thing that is 'happening to' them. THIS IS NOT THE CASE!
Your symptoms are not ‘happening to you’, you are – accidentally – creating them yourself. You are creating them in your head using a combination of a number of different cognitive processes (ie, belief systems and thinking styles) that you are probably not aware fully aware of, or believe they are hard/impossible to change.
All anxieties and symptoms are the END RESULT of very specific and unhelpful ways of thinking. There may be thinking styles such as catastrophising (imagining the worst), brooding and ruminating, perfectionist, negative or black and white thinking. Below are some specific examples:.
- Insomniacs are often very good at over-thinking and obsessing, not only at night, but during the day too.
- Panic attack and sexual problems sufferers are experts at catastrophising and preparing themselves for the worst case scenario - and unknowingly creating a self fulfulling prophesy.
- OCD sufferers are usually perfectionist and black and white thinkers, and find it hard to tolerate uncertainty.
The chances are, you will be using these unhelpful thinking styles in other areas of your life too, leading to other issues and anxieties. This is why people usually have more than one symptom when they first consult with me.

The TRUE cause of your symptoms
It doesn’t matter what you think actually caused your symptom or problems. You might – for example – believe your phobia of vomiting was caused by you choking on a marble when you were six years old. Regardless of what you believe stated your phobia, what is causing it TODAY are your current beliefs....and you can change/optimise these in just a few weeks. Maybe you believe your low self-esteem, nail-biting and heavy-drinking are due to you being bullied as a child? Well, maybe that IS what started them, but what is causing those symptoms TODAY, are your beliefs and thinking styles.
With The Thrive Programme® it’s now possible for you to learn the skills to optimise your thinking styles in a few weeks… there really is no reason why you should have to suffer with these symptoms anymore.
The Thrive Programme involves much more than just giving you self insight and helping you to change these thinking styles. We don't want you to just get really good at firefighting away those unhelpful thinking styles....that's hard work and a lot of effort.
The answer is in not creating those unhelpful thinking styles in the first place
This is done by teaching you how to have strong, robust psychological foundations, ie, good self esteem, confidence around others, and a robust sense of control. We don't create symptoms when we are thriving. When our foundations are strong, we don't brood, we don't catastrophise. Instead we think in positive, empowering ways. We Thrive.
The beauty of Thrive is that you may begin the programme with the intention of overcoming your main symptom, but you will end the programme gaining much, much more than that.
