So What it Thriving?:

"Thriving is about flourishing in life, regardless of where you are  or what you're doing, what your past experiences were like, what your relationships are like, how much money you have, or what skills you have. It's about fine tuning your mind and body to get the very best from them" Rob Kelly

Then I can help you achieve the life you want. 

Hi, I'm Kate Patterson, and I have been helping people all my professional career, initially as a teacher but now as a Licensed Thrive Programme Consultant®, to gain the skills and develop the resources they need to be happy, well rounded and successful people in their own right. I will show you how to overcome any mental health issues, wellbeing problems and show you how you can take control of your life, and feel great. In just six weeks I will teach you the skills you need to feel really good about yourself. You will learn how to manage your emotions and your thinking patterns well and develop the skills you need to thrive and flourish. You will learn how to tolerate and cope with challenges well and be able to bounce back quickly from life's ups and downs so that you can really enjoy your life. I have found the Thrive Programme to be life-changing for me personally and hugely beneficial, it is positive and had had an enormous transformational effect on my life and those people I meet. I can really empathise as not only am I dyslexic so my journey through the education system was tricky, to say the least, but I have faced many other of life rich challenges and I have learned so much about myself from them.

 The Thrive Programmeis a unique psychoeducational, researched-based training programme that is extremely positive and empowering and will show you how to live the life you really want, to be happy, to be able to cope and tolerate with life's challenges, it will teach you how to overcome phobias, anxieties, and depression and to learn how to positively thrive. If I can do this so can you. 

What is Thriving?

Ilona Boniwell writes “positive emotions broaden our attention and thinking which in turn means that we have more positive thoughts and a greater variety of them”. What she is implying is that when we experience things like happiness, pleasure or joy, or that we are interested or curious in the world around us we are far more likely to be creative and open-minded. Thriving is not languishing in the realms of OK. Thriving is moving forward and has no endpoint. The world really is your oyster.  This is what thriving looks like. I know what I would prefer, what about you? 

Thriving is having the skills and resources to be able to bounce back quickly from any problems, illnesses or other issues in life, overcoming obstacles and living the life you want quickly and easily. We all can face difficulties in our lives, some of our own making and some that we have no control over at all and the sense of powerlessness can be overwhelming.   I am going to show you how to build your own strong psychological foundations so that you make the changes in your life and be the person you want to be.  The Thrive Programme will teach you not only awareness and self-insight but also skills that you need in order to thrive. It's an exciting prospect don't you think! Problems Helped

Thriving in the Workplace - Helping your business Thrive

When you decide to strike out on your own in business, it’s your vision for a successful future that you need to focus on. You’ll be the creative force who’ll be driving that vision forward, but running your own business will never be a smooth ride. So to be resilient enough to cope with the ups and downs of the business world you’ll need a whole set of skills and resources to help you. The trouble is some people might not have the robust psychological foundations that are crucial to long-term success.

So what can you do? It’s all about personal development. Firstly, be mindful that, while it’s not often acknowledged, one of the reasons business fail is because the business owner may not have the resilience to bounce back when things get tough. The Thrive Programme ™ can teach you how to build those strong psychological foundations so when life’s inevitable ups and downs arrive, you’ll be able to weather the storm. The programme will help you to understand yourself properly, adjust your personal skills, consider goal setting plans and develop psychological foundations to help you get back in control, move forward and keep your business thriving. It’s a personal development plan that works.

Whether you chose the Thrive Programme ™ or Helping your Business Thrive ™, you’ll go on a guided learning course in self-improvement which is conducted on either an individual basis or as part of a small group. Everyone goes through stress at work so together a group situation can work well as part of your personal development plan. However, you can decide which approach would work best for you. Working with me, you will develop a detailed understanding of yourself and the way you tick. Goal setting will be important to see the results of your self-improvement process. After that work is done, you’ll be equipped to identify areas where you can make positive changes.

So as you begin your journey as a solepreneur or a small business owner, ask yourself these three important questions. Your answers and understanding them will help you on the road to be healthy and happy, not just in your personal life but your business life too.

1. Do you think that you are resilient and personally equipped enough to cope with setbacks?

2. Do you find that you create unnecessary work and put yourself under a lot of stress and pressure?

3. Do you lack confidence in your judgements and worry a lot about others opinions?

If your answer is ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then investing in The Thrive Programme ™ will be a really benefit, not only to you but the success of your business too.

But please don’t just take my word for it. Here are the thoughts of those who’ve already been on this journey and started to thrive.

“I’m no longer a people pleaser - I have confidence in my own decisions and I am proud of my business,” says Sue, the owner of a marketing company. “I have learned to sustain my business growth that in the past would have faltered because of how I was feeling.”. Sue H. Network Marketer  

“From the very first conversation it stopped the slide and gave me some hope,” he shares. “I was very down but this helped my self-esteem and I use some techniques with people I work with, which has been powerful. The processes of control were insightful; I still use aspects of it quite a bit. When I do get quite stressed or overwhelmed, it is so helpful going back over the books and rereading processes and reinforcing what I have been taught. Allan S. Editor 

“The course was definitely worth the money, it stopped my slide (into depression) and put me on a better trajectory. I continued sessions but soon I was on a better direction. We even Skyped, when I had sessions I would take a day off work to travel from London because they were so valuable to me.” Brian.  Business Coach for seior execuatives in blue chip companies. Brian M. Business Coach for Chief Execuatives of blue chip companies.

"I’ve been working with Kate on the Thrive Programme for the last few weeks. Thrive is a skills-based course developed by Rob Kelly and delivered by various consultants over a period of six or seven weeks. It’s simple to understand and the basic techniques are easy to implement and maintain. 

Kate is at all times patient, professional, focussed and encouraging. Where necessary, Kate challenges you to consider the effect that any inherent unhelpful thinking styles have on your business, and then shows you how to bring about change. The process has been invaluable for us as a small family business, and I can say without hesitation that any further employees taken on by our business will be offered the opportunity to see Kate and take part in the Programme. Throw away the business self-help books as you will no longer need them – just do the Thrive Programme! " Rachael W. Attorney
