Recovery Therapy - Reversal of all Anxiety Conditions

What we show you is the simple scientific process all ex anxiety sufferers have been through to reverse their disorders back to 'order'.
TLM is psycho-educational which means you will be given simple, practical structure that automatically removes your anxiety condition.
You will receive Evidence Based tools that talk directly to your 'fear control centre', switch off anxiety and protect you from ever suffering again.
TLM fits into NICE guidelines, the NHS' IAPT Stepped Care Model and your support team are qualified mental health professionals.
Unlike therapy and drugs, TLM gives you clear guidance with constant support - You will be led to recovery is a 'common sense' structure.
TLM is designed for people of all ages. Whether you are 7 or 97, the process is the same, as simple, as fast and produces lifelong results.
TLM was created in 1996 by ex-sufferers and psychologists working in practice - TLM is the only psycho-educational recovery therapy.

There's one science and one solution

What all anxiety sufferers want is to KNOW how to recover... and that's exactly what we show people. If you do what your brain and body needs in order to recover... you will recover... that's 100% certain. And there is only one way to do that because it's 'fixed' by genetics in every human.

In 20 years helping people to recover and over 22 years of my own suffering, I have never met someone who couldn't or hasn't recovered and the science of recovery hasn't only been confirmed over and over by many thousands of cases, but it conforms to simple neurology and psychology.

What I show you will make so much sense and will fill you with an immediate sense of relief and positivity. You'll know you have found the right solution for you... and our team will be there to make it all very simple and fast.

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?

I'm Still Standing...

I was YOU once... I recovered and you will too!

For 26 years, I was YOU...

I'm not a psychologist, therapist or counsellor... I am an average human who suffered from anxiety disorders for 22 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.

You will be anxiety free of that there's no doubt... just listen and do... it's so simple. Charles

Why is LTE the world's most effective anxiety recovery resource?

Charles Linden suffered with anxiety, OCD, agoraphobia, mono phobia, eating disorders, health anxiety, low mood and other manifestations of fear disorder until he was 26. Charles developed the original program following his successful and full recovery.

The team at LTE was taken on to assist in administering the programmes and they are all BACP and BPS psychologists and psychotherapists trained in LAR at NCFE Level 4 through their CPD. They are professionally qualified Anxiety Recovery Practitioners.

The programmes are psycho-educational as the disorders are actually endocrine control disorders and not mental illnesses. Like unfitness, the condition that results from disordered responses, fear disorders are eliminated by changing incoming neurological data in order to manipulate the mind and body into fitness.

It’s how we learn everything throughout life. Mental illnesses include psychosis, brain injury, degenerative diseases and true, clinical depression. Fear disorders aren’t remotely associated with these as fear, as we all know is activated by the brain and the hormone (endocrine response) happens in the lower left abdomen in the adrenal glands.

TLM teaches people to deactivate the disordered element of the fear response in the same way as exercise teaches people to deactivate the disordered element of activity.The speed of efficacy is dependent on one factor. Compliance. If a person is compliant, the mind can switch off inappropriate fear responses and therefore all associated manifestations including phobias, obsessions, compulsions and panic, in a very short time. Biologically, this can be seconds. Practically it is often 1 to 5 days.

As the systemic responses are all built in to every human by evolution, a person with anxiety will recover. The only exacerbating issues are related to other physiological conditions which might make recovery difficult. The same is true of exercise.Once recovery is reached, relapse is impossible.

The mind modifies neurology through neuroplasticity and prevents a new disorder from activating.CBT is scientifically flawed as it focuses on cognition. Cognition does not play a part in fear response and therefore, no amount of thought will manipulate or change anxiety levels. In fact, talking about it will only make it worse.

Furthermore, there is no monitoring of CBT practice and practitioners add, often, harmful and sometimes ridiculous practices to their sessions, creating a bastardisation of the original process. Over the years we have heard horrific stories of the treatments people have received.Like all learning processes, TLM is measured on outcomes. “I was A, now I am B”. Like examination processes in schools, evidence of efficacy of the process is measured by the outcome. This is the same. Recovery = efficacy. Please look at some of the thousands of recoveries we have created on our websites. This is not evident elsewhere.

A person with anxiety can present as mentally ill because hyper-vigilance creates the mental confusion and often despair, that legitimate fear creates when appropriate but in the fear disorder it is constant. Hypervigilence places you in an enhanced state and whilst people may appear ‘crazy’, they certainly are not. When recovery is reached, normality returns. People who are predisposed to suffering from anxiety conditions are in the segment of society with the highest level intellect and emotional intelligence; these are elements of the genetic predisposition. I have never seen an anxious person cause harm to or neglect another person.

Anxious people are generally very loving, kind and generous when their fear disorder is removed.

Charles Linden "I always said that if I were starting  company from scratch. I would only employ anxious people. I’d then cure them and created the greatest team of people alive. All of our employees are ex sufferers."

Since 1997, over 350,000 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 (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 260,000 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 CPD 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.

Introduction to recovery
What do YOU want?
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... he described his mind as a Runaway Train. Out of control and speeding off without a driver.

BUT, 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 harmony 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.
Healing Hands

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.
