Vaginismus Cure

What is The Thrive Programme®?

The Cure your Vaginismus and Thrive programme is a complete psychological, emotional and physical solution to permanently resolving your vaginismus. It is a unique, easy-to-follow and life changing training programme that teaches you how to feel in control of your mind and your body in order to achieve successful penetration.

A completely different approach to curing vaginismus

Many women with vaginismus have tried a variety of treatment options – whether it’s pelvic floor exercises, vaginal trainers/dilators, botox – to little or no avail. Most interventions focus upon offering a purely physical vaginismus cure which does not help women to understand or overcome the vital psychological or emotional aspects that really cause and maintain the condition. The good news is that with effective, targeted help, vaginismus CAN be cured.

A unique, sensible approach with predictable outcomes

This programme is unlike any other intervention available for vaginismus. You will learn essential insights and knowledge about yourself, your body, and the condition that you will not find anywhere else.

Vaginismus is often a multi-faceted condition and this programme addresses ALL the elements of the condition including psychological, emotional, physical and relationship factors. It will enlighten you about the true causes and components of vaginismus, whilst providing you with all the necessary skills and resources to resolve it once and for all.

How The Thrive Programme was developed

Psychotherapist Rob Kelly has spent the last 30 years analysing what makes people ‘tick’

His experiences and research have led to an outstanding level of understanding of people’s problems, symptoms and anxieties. He has identified links between our belief systems, our different styles of thinking, and the way we respond emotionally to events, and how these responses create many of the problems and symptoms that people seek help with. As a result of this extensive research and clinical experience, Rob created The Thrive Programme

This revolutionary mental health training programme has now helped tens of thousands of people worldwide to quickly and predictably overcome a whole host of anxieties and symptoms.

The Cure your Vaginismus and Thrive Programme was borne out of the need for a symptom-specific programme, and Cara Ostryn has adapted the programme for this purpose. The information and insights in this programme are the product of her many years of clinical experience helping hundreds of women to successfully overcome vaginismus

Some of the essential insights you will gain from the programme:

What is REALLY causing your vaginismus

How your relationship may be causing/affecting vaginismus (and how to resolve it)

How to make a successful transition from using dilators to enjoying sex.
