Scientific, Simple, Supportive & Guaranteed
How did one man's recovery lead to the development of the world's first and only dedicated anxiety disorder recovery therapy with phone and online counselling?
The oldest online recovery & support organisation in the world
Since 1997, over 217,000 people have used TLM and over 30 million others have accessed our other services
LAR Therapy is administered by mental health practitioners (psychologists and psychotherapists) with a professional level LAR Recovery Practitioner accreditation.
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 217,000 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.
UNIQUE RECOVERY RATES
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.
To the right are two videos recorded 'off the cuff' by Charles. The first is reassuring information about how you can recover and the second asks you "what do you want?" Believe it or not, some people don't know what they want.
I'm no psychologist, therapist or counsellor... I am an average human who suffered from anxiety disorders for 25 plus years. Following my own recovery I decided to create a self-help methodology that eventually became a Peer Supported Psycho-educational recovery programme, teaching every anxiety disorder sufferer what I had done to remove the predisposition to suffering and erase my disorders.
All I want to do is stop people from suffering. I am plain speaking, honest and respectful but I also know how myself and every recovered anxiety disorder sufferer did it... my job is to tell you. No psychology or mumbo jumbo, just simple guidance.
'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.

"Anyone suffering from anxiety should do The Linden Method. It worked for me."
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.
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.
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.
Our organisation 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 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.
