Rob Kelly - Creator of The Thrive Programme

Rob Kelly

‘Rob, you have just changed my life’Delegate at Blue Cow Summit, February 2015
Rob Kelly is insightful, slightly irreverent and interested in just one thing: teaching you how to THRIVE.

Thriving means having high self-esteem, a sense of positivity, resilience and motivation. Anyone can thrive if only they have the skills, self-insight and psychological resources: The Thrive Programme helps you to achieve all this. Whether you had an abusive childhood, suffer from a fear or phobia or want to achieve more at work, The Thrive Programme is for you.

Rob Kelly is the author and researcher of Amazon Bestseller Thrive Programme series. He has spent more than twenty five years studying how people develop emotional and psychological resilience, worthiness and what it takes to live successful lives.

Rob is the author of the the original Thrive Programme book, Thrive. He is also the author of the #1 book on curing emetophobia, Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive, Thrive for Teenagers, and Thrive as a Non Smoker. Rob is also the founder and CEO of The Thrive Programme – a teaching and certification program for helping professionals who want to facilitate his work on helping people to thrive in life.

Rob Kelly has worked in private practice as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist for over twenty-five years. His smoking cessation course (The Rob Kelly Method) is used by therapists nationwide and has a 93% effectiveness rate. After 20 years in clinical practice, Rob consolidated research and practical experience to write ‘The Thrive Programme’, now a series of four books. He has trained nearly 100 Thrive Programme Consultants worldwide who are all licensed to take clients through the Thrive Programme, either in person or over Skype.

2014 saw the publication of ‘Cure your Emetophobia and Thrive’, arguably the most successful interventions for emetophobia (a pathological fear of vomiting). Rob is an authority on the subject and he leads seminars worldwide for sufferers.

Born in Cornwall and brought up in East Anglia, Rob had a challenging childhood and twice has had life-saving brain surgery to alleviate damage caused by a neurological condition called Syringo Myelia. He is an international competition-level pilot and a keen musician (and karaoke singer). He has two grown-up children and lives near Cambridge,UK.
