The Thrive Programme

Rita Smith is also a fully qualified & licensed Thrive Consultant able to deliver the Life Changing Thrive Programme here in Epping. The Thrive Programme is an advanced “mind re-training” system developed by best selling author Rob Kelly who has personally trained Rita in this technique. Rita says “It is reported that we have between 40,000 and 70,000  thoughts every day!! Understanding how our mind works - knowing that our feelings and emotions  are driven by our thoughts in the first place is the key to controlling  our mind. How many times do we say that we feel out of control, or that we don’t understand  what’s going on in our mind.”  It is particularly evident when we experience major upheavals in  our life through illness, death, divorce or unemployment. This then leads to destructive thoughts which lead to unhelpful habits and behaviours creating self doubt, a low opinion of ourselves, and social  anxiety (feeling judged and taking everything personally) . When we are not thinking right and worrying, we find that we are not sleeping or eating properly - maybe even drinking or smoking  too much. The Thrive Programme will change that in 6 to 8 hours.  It is unbelievably simple and fascinating and teaches you to take control of your life.  This programme gives you the life skills to manage your life efficiently, calmly and gently and once you know how to to it - its like riding a bike - you may get a little rusty but you will never forget!


Emetophobia client

I am fourteen years old and I have lived with emetophobia since I was five. After nine years of a variety of therapies and other people trying to convince me that there was nothing to be afraid of, I finally found something that taught me that I had the power within me to overcome my fears. I started Thrive four months ago after a three week period of out of control anxiety, centered around the fear of vomiting, that left me unable to go to school, sleep, eat, or function in any rational way. After doing ONE session of Thrive with Rita on skype, I realized that I had the ability to change and control the thoughts that were in my head, so I could live a life without fear. Instead of relying on other people to tell me that I am ok, all I do is remember what I learned from Thrive, and I am ok. Things aren't always 100% perfect, but I always have something to rely on to comfort me and it comes from within now. Now, I've done about ten sessions of Thrive and am living a happy/healthy life!

We miss you and think of you often (and for some reason whenever we say your name we say it with our best English accent)

Hi Rita

"Thank you so much for helping me to stop smoking. It was so easy, I have not thought about smoking a cigarette since. I still get the thought that I use to have a cigarette but the thought disappears as quickly as it came. I am so relieved and happy and positive and I will be recommending you to anyone I know who wants to stop smoking. The thing that impressed me the most was how easy it was.

Thank you for giving me such a great gift."

Hi there, My name is Rita Smith and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my website. I am a full-time Professional  Hypnotherapist, specialising in getting people to STOP SMOKING really easily in under 2 hours!! I am a Gastric Hypnoband Practitioner and  am also a qualified Thrive Practitioner having been awarded Thrive Practitioner for the year in 2013 by the founder of this amazing programme, Rob Kelly.  I have had the pleasure of working with  hundreds of people over the last 7 years change unwanted habits, behaviours and beliefs literally overnight. I am passionate about my work and I pride myself in my belief that EVERYONE can change their thinking and unhelpful behaviours when they know how too. I smoked for 35 years and when I was taught some simple psychological skills together with some hypnotherapy I just stopped smoking with no withdrawal symptoms or anxiety.  It was an  unbelievable experience and l knew I had to pass this knowledge on and help save or at least change peoples lives. I initially trained as a Hypnotherapist back in 2008 using powerful suggestions whilst in a relaxed state of  mind to re programme  habits of thinking such as driving test nerves, IBS, presentations or phobias of flying, dentists,birds etc. Always wanting to learn more I then trained in analytical hypnotherapy, Beliefs work with the Thrive programme and the Hypnoband weight loss programme. I work with many clients helping them  with weight issues, bereavement, divorce, phobias, bulimia/anorexia, binge drinking, addictions, Emetophobia (fear of being sick) to name a few. Many of these problems can be resolved in a few hours with the right programme allowing you to live a happy life and healthy life. Please click here to take you to my “Quit Smoking” Page.
