The Retreats are a no-compromise experience, encapsulating everything a sufferer could need and want to feel safe, supported, guided and informed about every aspect of their recovery.

Total immersion in this envronment for recovery means that you will quickly understand and implement the recovery process whilst being cared for, nurtured and guided by amazing staff members.

Our course leader, psychologist Jenny Brookes and the Retreat team will nurture each and every sufferer throughout the recovery process.

Charles Linden’s session will provide you with the opportunity to get advice directly from our founder and to draw on his experience helping tens of thousands of sufferers to recover.

After the Retreat, clients continue to receive guidance and support in order to expedite and seal their recovery. Support is provided by phone and email on an unlimited basis.

Uniquely, with the 4 day Retreat format, patients can be accompanied by a partner, friend and even their spouse and family if they wish.

We want each and every patient to feel as relaxed as they can on entering and throughout the Retreat.

Patients travel from around the world to attend the Retreats and Workshops, in 2015 season we have had patients from New Zealand, South Africa, Kualar Lumpar, the USA and Canada attending and many international clients already booked in for 2016.

Our emphasis is on REAL, lasting recovery – Not anxiety management or ‘coping strategies’.

The Retreat format, of course, comes with an associated and appropriate cost but is, nonetheless, far more cost effective than residential care in private psychiatric facilities, in addition, however, the environment is entirely different and the provision of support, guidance and care is much higher than in such facilities.

The Retreat venue is a no-compromise option with superb amenities, dining, rooms and leasure facilities.

Some Retreat attendee comments.

“I would really like other sufferers – especially those who cannot remember a time when they were not anxious and are currently in the depths of despair – to know that there is a way to get completely better. Like a lot of people, I was initially doubtful that this would be able to provide a complete cure, but I am living proof that it really works.

I can honestly say that, since completing the 4-day residential course and very importantly, following through with the ongoing recommendations, the only anxiety I now feel is in ‘sabre-tooth tiger’ situations, or in other words, when it’s entirely appropriate. The Retreat really did change my life and I am so grateful to have found it. Is it worth the money? YES. Very best wishes.” Madeleine Yates

Such a wonderful accessible course – it has really opened my eyes to how to live a more fulfilling and enjoyable life, and the anxiety has gone away naturally through the whole process. With such a great team to guide you through the Retreat it is impossible not to recover!Neelam

The Retreat has enabled me to confront issues which have caused considerable damage to me and stress close to me. I leave with a fresh vision and a plan to change and take control of my life.Neil Boss

On day one, arriving on my own, I was anxious, apprehensive, nervous and fearful. By the last day I felt stronger, positive and looking forward to the changes ahead and a new anxiety free life. Rob and Jenny are amazing. There are no better two people to help us through this and I am so thankful for their guidance and support.Vicky

I came to the Retreat feeling extremely nervous, saying over and over again “this will never work”! How wrong I was. By day two I just knew that this WAS going to work and it was ME that was going to make it happen – A real Eureka moment! Thanks to everyone – totally life changing.Janet Verrall

After living the life we have lived for many years and with my Wife as an anxiety sufferer, I have known nothing different and it became normal life. From the start of the Retreat with everyone arriving as strangers and obviously affected by their condition to the difference at the end of the four days, I have been amazed. Not just the change in my Wife but the change in everyone on the course was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. I have made many new friends and have never in my life been amongst a more genuine lovely bunch of people. The change in my Wife and everyone else on this Retreat was unbelievable.

Living abroad whilst my daughter was studying in England was always going to be difficult. However when she started suffering with panic attacks, it was extremely difficult and I was in complete despair. We were offered the Retreat programme and I can honestly say that it has turned my Daughters life around. I feel very confident that she now has the tools and determination to finally put her anxiety to bed and get on with her life. This programme should be available to all sufferers. There are no doubt hundreds and thousands of people who are suffering with a range of anxiety disorders which lead to a life of pain and misery. The Linden Method Retreat can cure them within days and we must ask why isn’t this programme readily available for every sufferer!Mrs Kay – A Happy Mother.

This Retreat was incredible. The staff, the venue, the course were all great. Many thanks to Charles, Beth, Jo, Jenny and all the staff at the venue. The conversations with the other Retreat members was the perfect combination to facilitate a foundation. How to properly implement the recovery process is the greatest skill I have ever been taught in my entire life!Joey Mackel from Canada
