Firstly, a thank you to Ashley Fulwood of OCD UK for the years of continued and escalating interest in what we do.
It is fascinating how much time you and your chums dedicate to bringing negative attention to me, my team and my organisation, but what is really satisfying is that of all organisations, you all chose mine... which means that we must doing something RIGHT.
It is interesting that the head of OCD UK would find it necessary to undermine our work and reputation in this way given that OCD UK should be referring clients to resources that would or could, help them to understand and eliminate their OCD - the efficacy which is uniquely and highly evident in our provision.
Instead, Ashley Fulwood prefers to criticise what we do and undermine my team.
Ashley Fulwood espouses the efficacy of CBT when neither he, nor anyone we have ever heard of, have been cured by it; indeed, the science behind CBT is misguided and misleading at best and more often than not, leads to increased anxiety.
Ashley, we are responding to your silliness because we believe people need the truth
... not versions of the truth spun to undermine people, services and ultimately... recovery.
You see, we cure people... you don't.
You NEED sufferers because without them, your 'club' would collapse.
To anyone reading this page... you see...
Ashley Fulwood and OCD UK will never promote what actually works... they only promote what doesn't because OCD recovery doesn't 'pay'.
But, the people concerned all make serious incomes from OCD UK, so you can understand their need for members, albeit misguided and selfish.
It is curious that despite not having ONE testimonial of recovery on Ashley Fulwood's own organisation's website and continuing to suffer from OCD to date, according to Ashley Fulwood's recent posts, he chooses to criticise and write about us with such delight, excitement and clear intent. REAL RELIEF
You see, Charles Linden had severe OCD for 22 years from age 4 and he recovered age 26... fully recovered. Then he took that knowledge and created a recovery program that has since cured tens of thousands of OCD sufferers completely. You'll see some of those people dotted across this page and website... where are the OCD UK testimonials?
Other therapies = ZERO recovery
Our therapy = 100% efficacy
In contrast to the OCD UK / Ashley Fulwood website which is, at best, a list of NHS and printed resource for sufferers to refer to, our websites are packed to the brim with real testimonials from real people to whom we have brought welcome relief and medical doctors and psychologists who recommend and support us. Other than posts about cycle riding fun, we can't really identify what OCD UK's purpose is or how it benefits OCD sufferers in any positive way.
Some of our OCD ambassadors share there stories on this page... just scroll down to read them and click on the links to read thousands more. Here's a direct link... www.thelindencentre.org
Ashley Fulwood has a number of people with whom he interacts socially online and off, who have received police harassment warnings and other legal redress for their conduct over quite a number of years.
Ashley plays it a little 'smarter'... but he still 'plays it' and ALL the people involved are the subject of an ongoing criminal and civil investigation and action.The difference between us and them is that....
We quietly go about inspiring people, presenting positivity and creating transformation because it's what we love doing. They
spend hundreds of hours trying to undermine what we do for vulnerable, anxious people.
Ashley has no professional privilege (no relevant qualifications that give him a qualified right to opinion), so his comments are unfounded and made on the basis of no formal training in education; psycho-educational learning nor the sciences of the brain concerned with the curative process and successful removal of the disorders that we achieve at LTE.
We know how to cure OCD and we do so every day with clients all over the world - If OCD UK has good intentions, we would love to work with them to bring recovery to their members and site users. Like all clubs, OCD UK wouldn't exist if we cured every sufferers, so we suspect that this selfless offer will be ignored.
Ashley Fulwood has a successful business in his OCD UK charity, but wouldn't it be great if instead of recommending what is clinically ineffective, they offered their members the opportunity to do what does work... evidence based recovery.
It's clearly more fulfilling for them to prevent people like those featured on this page, from receiving the recoveries they experienced due to our programmes.
I mean it's a joke isn't it, to recommend the 'gold standard' and continue to publicly state how much he suffers despite having had the 'gold standard' of treatment?
One of his friends is 'Captain Gold Standard' and 'Admiral of Evidence Based Practice'... but still he continues to suffer... meanwhile, our clients recover. Hmmmmm. VERY ODD.Read on to understand Ashley Fulwood is so misinformed...
