Why The Thrive Programme works so well for vaginismus…
Vaginismus (also known as vaginism) is a sexual problem affecting women. It causes sex to be painful or impossible due to the tensing of the vaginal muscles. Sufferers may also experience difficulty inserting tampons or undergoing a gynecological examination. Vaginismus is the main cause of unconsummated relationships and it can put relationships under great strain. It is extremely frustrating to be unable to physically engage in pleasurable sex and sufferers often feel abnormal and embarrassed about the condition. The anticipation of pain or sexual ‘failure’ further contributes to and reinforces the symptoms of vaginismus.
It’s impossible to know how many women suffer from this condition. Many women suffer in silence and feel too embarrassed to tell their doctor. However, from my personal clinical experience, it is THE most common symptom that I treat. Hopefully you will find reassuring as it can be easy to believe that you’re the only one suffering from it! And actually, at the time of writing this page, over a half of my clients are vaginismus sufferers.
Intimate or personal issues can be difficult to seek help for and talk about but please be reassured that I spend most of my working week talking to women about their vaginas! My insights have been gained from many years of treating vaginismus sufferers. The information in my programme is the product of numerous clinical hours spent helping women with their questions, concerns, frustrations and obstacles that they encounter with this condition. I am the co-author the ‘Cure your Vaginismus and Thrive’ Workbook.
For 3 years I have suffered with vaginismus and I thought it was a problem with me, an unsolvable problem. Until I met Cara! That sounds corny, I know but its true. I came across Cara’s website through simply searching the term vaginismus online & was suddenly filled with hope that there was a cure! – THRIVE. I battled with vaginismus to the point where sex was not possible at all, I had been told by Doctor’s and gynaecologists that this condition was very difficult to treat and required physical treatment, examinations – you name it!
Anybody experiencing this condition will understand what I mean when it feels like your hitting a brick wall followed by feeling very down after each failure. After seeing Cara I am able to have sex and actually enjoy it! Thank you SO much for all of your help Cara, feel like a little butterfly let loose! Hannah, 21

Vaginismus IS treatable – with the right intervention
Of the many vaginismus clients I have worked with, most have already tried various treatment options. These have included vaginal trainers, pelvic floor exercises or psychosexual therapy – and to little or no avail. Although vaginismus manifests itself in a very physical way, its causes are psychological and emotional. Any treatment of vaginismus that does not address these factors is unlikely to be successful in the long term.
The Thrive Programme: Successful treatment for Vaginismus
∼ Practical, essential advice on how to achieve successful penetration
∼ Change your beliefs and unhelpful thinking styles that cause vaginismus
∼ Feel back in control of your mind and your body
∼ Break the unhelpful cycle of behaviour that causes vaginismus
∼ Feel much more confident around others, including your partner
The Thrive Programme for Vaginismus is a unique and very effective training programme that helps you to understand yourself, your beliefs and your thinking and how those element are causing the vaginismus. Vaginismus is caused by factors such as feeling out of control, particuarly with regard to your body and its responses. Our minds are very powerful and by simply expecting sex to hurt it will cause you to tense up, so the pain becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. Sometimes issues in your relationship with your partner spill over into the bedroom, resulting in vaginismus.
However, once you have the insight to understand exactly how you may be creating the thinking and anxiety behind the symptom, it can be very easy to think differently, change old patterns of behaviour and feel back in control.
Hi Cara, I hope you remember me – I completed the thrive programme with you around a year ago. I was seeing you for vaginismus. I wanted to let you know that I am completely cured of vaginismus….I am soooo much happier in all aspects of my life now. So, I just wanted to let you know that you really helped me. Thrive really was the turning point for me and I recommend it to everyone I speak to in and outside of work who wants to make any kind of change in their lives. Thank you!
Sophie, Thrive Programme treatment for vaginismus
Having had vaginismus for 10 years I was beginning to give up on the idea of ever being able to have sex. I’d tried counselling and psychosexual therapy for years with very little progress, but all I’d needed was 6 sessions of Thrive. Cara really helped me see that sex was possible and all that was stopping me was me! I really do feel now that anything is possible. Cara, I cannot thank you enough- my life has changed so much and I can now really look forward to my future.
