about the charles linden method

Since 1997, over 320,000 people have used TLM and over 30 million others have accessed our other services

LAR Therapy, which is the therapy behind The Linden Method and all of our Workshop and Residential Retreat programs, is the World's only accredited, dedicated anxiety disorder recovery therapy.

LAR Therapy is administered by mental health practitioners with a professional level qualification as an LAR Recovery Practitioner.

Although our support team are all psychologists and psychotherapists, what we practice is psycho-educational... not psychology. This is why what we do works so effectively... it makes sense to sufferers and is based on actual science not the bastardisation of science used widely, which produces no measurable recovery results. We treat the core condition, not the symptoms.

Since 1997, we have been providing recovery programmes for people suffering from a wide range of emotional disorders. Over 215,000 people have now used TLM and the numbers are growing rapidly as we receive increasing numbers of medical and psychological referrals from those who dismiss counselling and psychotherapy, medications and other therapies due to lack of recovery success.

Recognition of the vast difference between the recovery rates we produce and the lack of such in other practices, lead well-meaning practitioners to refer directly to us in order to move their patients down a more definite recovery pathway. We receive referrals through NHS practitioners, private practice, educational facilities and other sources. Why? Because we produce results.

Linden Tree Education is an NCFE accredited educational facility. Our team are LAR accredited, NCFE accredited, MBACP and BPS members.

Introduction to recovery
What do YOU want?
Educational Organization
Following my own recovery I decided to create a self-help methodology that could become a Peer Supported Psycho-educational programme in order to teach ever anxiety disorder sufferer what I had done to remove the predisposition to suffering. Management and coping were two words I certainly never wanted to hear again and wasn't prepared to let young people like myself hear when recovery is possible, fast and simple. LAR is the world's first and only accredited anxiety disorder recovery, peer supported, programme of recovery and of that we are all, at LTE, very proud. Charles Linden - Director

Our founder Charles Linden, not only cured himself but also discovered the true science of anxiety recovery.

Aged just 27 Charles was the first person to use LAR Therapy, but back then, he had no idea that it would, one day, be called that, or that it would be the first and only dedicated anxiety disorder recovery therapy.

The changes happened so fast. He went from a housebound agoraphobic with panic disorder, OCD, derealization and depersonalization, eating disorders, health anxiety, emetophobia, monophobia, fear of dying, HOCD, ROCD and a massive group of psychological and physical symptoms that no doctor or psychologist could ever explain or remove.

Charles was on a cocktail of drugs including Diazepam, Stelazine, Prozac and more. None proved in any way beneficial, but all brought with them a myriad of side-effects and interactions that brought Charles to breakdown.

In 1996 Charles decided enough was enough and embarked on a one week journey back to full anxiety freedom and independency.

ONE WEEK. That's all it took. His doctor, psychiatrist and psychologists looked on in absolute dismay as it dawned on them that despite their training, they had made him worse and he had done what they could never do... he cured himself.

But how?

By doing what the brain and body are naturally designed to do... restore balance across every bodily system... true recovery!

What Charles achieved turned out to be the scientific way to recover from anxiety disorders and now, years later, it really is the most scientific, common sense and straight-forward recovery therapy.
The organization and Charles' work

Our organization has helped thousands of famous people, sports stars, actors, actresses, recording artists, aristocracy and tens of thousands of people just like us... amazing people just wanting to recover and enjoy their lives.

Because of our reputation for creating fast recovery outcomes, Charles has helped people from all over the world in situations which mean that they must recover quickly. Charles and the team often step up when players can't go on the field, recording artists can't get on stage or actors can't get onto the set due to anxiety, panic or other anxiety related issues... a, kind of, Anxiety Emergency Service.

Charles has also been on many hundreds of TV and radio shows and has presented and directed dozens of TV shows, DVD programs and online TV media.

Charles is also an anxiety recovery consultant to media agencies, government bodies and many private corporate organizations. Charles is a published author with over 200 titles in publication through Hay House, Lifewise Publishing and others

Charles' aim has always been to provide TLM and LAR Therapy to every anxious person in the world. It is Charles' dream to, one day, provide TLM through every school, university, business, armed service, emergency service and healthcare organization in the world.

Our organization provides home access, Workshop, Residential Retreat, CD, DVD, TV series, online portal, website, online video and audio and book formatted resources.

Charles isn't an 'ist', he's an ex sufferer who recovered and shows others how to do the same.
