Our aim is to take the pressure of your organisation with regard to staff stress and anxiety issues and also to take over the bulk of the care you currently provide for anxious ‘frequent users’. We understand what a drain anxious people can be on your staff and resources; by allowing us to manage those clients and to remove anxiety and stress from your workforce, your organisation can return to optimum productivity.

For over 19 years we have demonstrated that implementation of our programmes and business models…

  • create recovery and long-term wellbeing
  • remove the pressure and risk of anxiety related issues from working environments
  • minimise the pressure of repeatedly dealing with frequent fliers and heart sink patients
  • reduce spend on emergency care and A&E resources
  • mitigate risk of litigation, reduce absenteeism, increase workforce morale

We provide a proven, accredited and structured education programme developed by a former chronic anxiety disorder sufferer, that has been used over the past 18 years to help fellow suffers RECOVER – TLM works because it addresses the true, root cause of high anxiety conditions directly… acting on the emotional control centre in the brain to regain chemical/emotional equilibrium.

How does the recovery process work?

  • It educates the brain to replace inappropriate emotional responses with appropriate responses and create neurology that protects the sufferer from recurrence of their disorder
  • It creates physical as well and mental equilibrium wellbeing
  • It relieves hyper-anxiety – enhancing personal life choices and opportunities
  • It encourages self-management of anxiety recovery without over reliance on professional help and support
  • It provides hope and motivation for suffers who have not found more mainstream therapies effective
  • It engages high anxiety suffers through an authentic ex -sufferer narrative

Why we are so different

  • Focuses on self-managed recovery with guided support;
  • Developed, tested with, and led by ex-anxiety sufferers who put their clients at the centre of all they do;
  • Underpinned by behavioural psychology and supported by support staff who are registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
  • Uses recovery professionals with a National Council for Further Education (NCFE) Level 4 (LAR) Practitioner Certificate;
  • Support staff are all ex anxiety disorder sufferers;
  • Works for people who have used/are using traditional psychological therapy interventions, medication and other therapies and have not found them effective;
  • Offers a real alternative choice to core NHS therapies

Client & Loved Ones

Enable clients to:

  • Develop a structured daily routine and apply a simple set of rules
  • Turn-off catastrophic “what if,” risk assessments” that lead to the physical and emotional feelings that perpetuate anxiety disorders and limit peace of mind and the life experience
  • Provide guided support to sustain motivation to develop new emotional responses that impact directly on the fear response
  • Facilitate ongoing compliance for successful recovery
  • Get results for clients who have not found cognitive behaviour therapy or counselling to be effective for them

Enabling “loved ones,” to:

  • Understand anxiety and what causes it;
  • Familiarise them with The Method’s ethos, resources and support;
  • Provide advice and support to enable them to work with the sufferer to sustain motivation and to develop positive behaviours that impact directly on the fear response;
  • Provide advice and support to help them facilitate the anxiety sufferer’s ongoing compliance with the Programme ensuring a successful recovery;
  • To assist in creating the environment for recovery and to assist them also in becoming more well and fulfilled

How does it work?

  • Until recently, the processes “Neuroplasticity” which remodel the brain to adapt to major changes or challenges were thought to be largely fixed and stable on reaching adulthood,*with the acceptations of learning and memory;
  • Neuroplastic processes enable the growth, replacement and pruning of neural branches which in turn increase or decrease the communication to different areas of the brain. After a stroke, for example, new branches can develop and existing ones can be pruned to re-establish connections and ultimately restore function;
  • Neuroplasticity has particular relevance to people who are in need of cognitive rehabilitation
  • Neurogenesis is associated with traditional treatments and includes environmental enrichment, exercise and learning
  • The Linden Method focuses on promoting behaviour that activates neurogenisis through education, management of environmental stimuli and specific support structures
