"I came to Thrive with long standing depression and anxiety. After searching for several solutions with the NHS nothing seemed to work, Thrive’s the only thing that has really worked. I now know how to get
myself thriving, and that’s so empowering! I’d highly recommend Michelle she’s amazing at 
what she does!"

JW from Edinburgh


Anxiety is a fearful state of apprehension, worry and doubt. It encompasses the thoughts, worries and feelings either behind or resulting from, a specific response or symptom. Anxiety can take many forms and sometimes its not clear-cut, as many symptoms can overlap, nut here’s a breakdown of specific conditions.

Generalised anxiety disorder GAD:

Overall feelings of anxiety which can’t be pinpointed to anything specific in a person’s life.

Obsessive compulsive disorder OCD:

Obsessional thoughts require the sufferer to carry out compulsive behaviours as a way of trying to clamber back control of the obsession and life.

Post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD:

Experienced after a traumatic event or experience. Anxiety is just one of other symptoms.

Fears and phobias:

Are specific to one thing and out of proportion, interfering with the person’s ability to live a normal life.

Panic attacks:
Sudden and overwhelming feeling of panic which can leave the sufferer feeling as if they can’t breathe and may die with the severity of the symptoms.

"I feel so much better on a daily basis and if I start to worry, I have the tools to catch this and make a change. I am much more relaxed and productive as I no longer spend a lot of energy “putting out fires” and trying to motivate myself.  Mostly I want to say a thank you to Michelle for helping me challenge my thinking styles
and perspective on things!"
