Thrive: Mental Wellbeing is an evidence-based app to prevent and manage stress, anxiety, and related conditions. Developed in the UK by specialists with many years of clinical experience, the app uses easy to learn clinically proven techniques to help you live a happier, more relaxed, stress-free life.
The app helps you monitor your mood and teaches you relaxation techniques such as meditation and deep muscle relaxation that with practice have shown to help people cope better with stressful situations. It also has a 'thought trainer' programme based on cognitive behavioural therapy to help you manage those negative thoughts. With no rules to use the app, you are free to jump in for 3 minutes to relax before a stressful situation or use more regularly to improve resilience and keep stress under control.
How do we know it works?
We have thousands of users worldwide. We are not trying to reinvent the wheel - we use techniques that have been practised in hospitals and clinics for years, but in a fun, game-based format. We have a research programme in partnership with the University of Roehampton focused on continuously improving engagement and efficacy.
Monitor your emotions
Using our Mood Meter you have a confidential platform to track your mood, the emotions you feel, and the situation you were in. We then help you to reframe this, thinking positively about a certain aspect of the situation and reminding you what you did on a specific day to make you feel good. By remembering what we can change rather than what we can not, we can help ourselves to control our emotional state and live happier lives!
Personalised messages, games, and more!
With our message in a bottle and wise words sessions, there are plenty of ways to interact and have fun with our app. Below are some more reasons why thousands of people are feeling the benefits of our app:
- On the go: Proven therapeutic techniques available in your hands whenever you want them.
- Easy to do: In your own time, at your own pace, with an interactive guide to help you along your journey!

We have added a High Contrast mode toggle to the settings menu. We have also added an option to disable the shake to feedback feature. As usual, we have fixed a bunch of bugs and improved performance. We very much appreciate your feedback so keep it coming. Just shake the device and send us your thoughts.
Ratings and Reviews
I appreciate this app so much. I’ve always had anxiety when my daily responsibilities have overwhelmed me. But the breathing exercises and ‘retraining my brain’ with positive thoughts has been life changing. Thank you for making this!!!
Excellent calming -- but much more
This Thrive app does a great job helping me to calm my mind, from the moment I open it when I listen to the music, to the time I'm practicing one of their meditation sessions. I've tried other apps and websites that claim to lower stress, but, to me, who has practiced mindful meditation for several decades, the others are overly focused on calming the mind. That's fine, but limited. Thrive is bolstered by clinically proven methods to target the cause of the monkey mind and other sources of stress, not just the symptoms.
This app does everything it promises. I have used each of the options and my favorites are the deep breathing and deep muscle. I find that when I am stressed or anxious the app quickly helps me to relax and focus. I have recommended the app to my colleagues who have also found it helpful.
