Charles’ background: Charles was christened Lyndon Charles Griffiths but in 2010 had his name formally, legally confirmed as Charles Linden to protect him and his family from harassment, threats and attacks from psychology professionals and others who are part of a choreographed case of harassment and malicious communications designed to undermine him and his team of qualified professionals. Charles is from Worcestershire but spent his 20s in Germany and has since spent 3 decades helping people from all over the world to recover. His organisations now offer online, app, workshop, corporate and residential programs of recovery.

Unbelievably empowering. I just felt a difference after speaking to him and like I can do this. He is crucial to the Retreat experience
Becky Toms

The most intelligent man and explanation of my disorders I have ever come across. How Charles explains anxiety, the science and everything around it is incredible. I didn’t want his session to end
Marissa K

If you have the opportunity to just sit and listen to Charles talk, do it. In 40 years of psychotherapy and psychology, I have never heard such incredibly eloquently positioned common sense. I didn’t have to say a word, Charles said it all, without hesitation or pregnant pause and it was life changing. Unbelievable.

More about our work

Thousands of people including celebrities and sports-people have used Charles’ resources and programs and go on to provide the most amazing reviews, statements and support.

Charles travels between Europe and the West coast of the USA to attend events, hold client sessions, attend media events and to fly the flag for anxiety disorder sufferers everywhere.

Charles is an outspoken ex sufferer who tolerated 27 years of anxiety before creating his own recovery whilst medicated and receiving regular ‘therapy’ sessions. Realizing that neither drugs nor therapy were the answer, Charles has gone on to develop what psychologists call ‘a new branch of psychological practice’.

Referred to  worldwide by doctors, psychologists and institutions

Charles’ Method is now used and referred to by doctors and psychologists world-over. The obvious curative success of the programme has meant that sufferers’ recoveries have compelled others to recommend it to others.

The program is also used by government agencies eager to reach the long-term unemployed. Falling under NICE guidelines CG-113, Charles’ programs are administered by qualified psychologists and psychotherapists and are considered to be the ‘new treatment of choice’ by those who practice.

Charles Created a Qualification in Anxiety Disorder Recovery

In 2013 Charles developed the world’s first qualification in Anxiety Disorder Recovery through the CPD accreditation service – this means that trained practitioners can now administer the solution in the field in a variety of healthcare, educational, corporate and forces settings.

This therapeutic approach is unique in content, delivery and curative outcomes. Clinical trials demonstrated 100% efficacy with an average outcome of complete anxiety recovery.

LAR has become the world’s first and only dedicated, accredited anxiety disorder treatment therapy.

The program is available as a home learning or residential course and qualifications will be awarded to those who pass the course work and demonstrate that they can deliver the program to a very high standard in order to maximise patient engagement and curative outcomes.
