Hi, my name is Sally O'Hara (South-East & Kent) and I am your local LAR Coach.
For many years, I have been around friends and family who have suffered from OCD, panic attacks, GAD, agoraphobia and Pure O, unaware that they are symptoms of anxiety disorder.
I have been on quite a journey trying to discover why they have these symptoms and have been in search of a way to support them. I've been in touch with the Mental Health Charities who advised CBT or hypnosis, neither of which provided a solution and were often completely counter-productive. I've accompanied them to appointments at doctors where medication or CBT seemed to be the only thing on offer. In some instances medication seemed to help initially but only for a short period then all the anxiety returned. I've accompanied them on their journey, desperate to help them to find a solution only to be lead down another dead end.
For far too long, it had become the "norm" for them to live with the symptoms and for me to help out in any way I could. I have felt helpless as I could see the terrible impact it was having on lives, not just theirs but their families too. It was stopping them from going to work and having meaningful relationships and doing the everyday things that we all take for granted. It was destroying their lives.
None of my friends or family members were ever cured of these crippling symptoms and were only ever offered coping or management strategies. Surely there had to be something out there that would help. I took it upon myself to try and find a solution.
I was talking to a friend one day who told me about her partner's journey out of anxiety and crippling panic attacks using The Linden Method. He had recently trained to become a Linden Anxiety Coach. The more she described it to me the more it made sense and so I decided to do the training course myself. I recommended The Linden Method program to friends and family and realising that it had worked for them, I had total conviction in the program and decided to also train to become a LAR Coach. I am now fully qualified and able to support sufferers on their recovery journey and truly make a positive difference to people's lives. Helping them to live their lives to the full with an anxiety free future.
I also work in the Welfare Department at the homeless charity 'Crisis for Christmas' and have become increasingly aware of what a problem anxiety is in society today. I enjoy helping others and have a strong desire to make a difference.
If you are ready to start your journey to recovery, then I am ready to help you. Please don't settle for a life with anxiety when you can fully recover and be the best you can be. Please complete the form below and I will be in touch very soon.
Hi, my name is Julie Dow and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hi my name is Julie Dow and I am your local Linden Anxiety Recovery (LAR) Coach.
I live in Hillside, near Montrose, on the East Coast of Scotland with my Husband and two Children, the dogs, the cat and the horses.
In 2010 I experienced my first panic attack. I had been through a stressful period in the months leading up to that first panic attack but at that point I was totally unaware of what panic attacks were and how they manifested and reacted in our bodies. In the months that followed, I was in a constant loop of panic attacks and anxiety.
I can honestly say that I was terrified of what was happening to me. I thought I was going to die. Dramatic as this may seem, I am sure anyone who is reading this and who has ever experienced a panic attack, will be nodding right now.
Each panic brought with it more fear of the next. Where would the next one happen? When? What if it happened in the car? What if I panicked out walking the dogs? Or out with the children? I basically thought of every ‘what if’ scenario. After a year on anti depressants and numerous visits to the Doctor, I was no better.
Then my husband found the link to the Linden Method on the web. Within minutes of reading it I had found someone who understood what I was going through, someone who had in fact been through it and most importantly, someone who had the cure. This man is Charles Linden. The Linden Method is the cure. I recovered and since then have lived life to the full, anxiety free.
I jumped at the chance to train to become a Linden Anxiety Recovery Coach. I feel inspired to pay forward what the Linden Method did for me and help others achieve the anxiety free life they deserve.
As your LAR Coach, I can help you break the anxiety loop and guide you to an anxiety free future. Feel free to contact me and begin the journey.
Hi, my name is Becky Goman and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hi, my name is Becky Goman and I am your local LAR coach for the South Coast. I have been a Probation Officer for 15 years, a career path I decided to follow because I wanted to help others but due to my anxiety I was unable to even help myself. For as long as I can remember I had always been anxious, I became significantly worse when my father fell ill back in 2007. My anxiety really took over my life so I tried all the usual ways to overcome it. You name it, I tried it… counselling, medication, hypnotherapy, CBT, which at the time my symptoms would appear reduced but would then latter manifest into something so much worse than before. In 2014 we sadly lost my mum and then my dad followed just over a year later. My son was very young at the time and I found everything completely overwhelming, my world felt like it had fallen apart and that's when my anxiety really became crippling. That's when I stumbled across The Linden Method. I signed up and I was instantly amazed by the results I achieved by complying with The Method. I went from being unable to leave the house or be left alone with my son, to returning to my full time job within a matter of weeks!
I did however let myself relapse by not complying fully with The Method but I knew it worked so I decided to dive in at the deep end and I attended the four day Anxiety Recovery Retreat. This was the best decision I ever made because I knew when I was there that I wouldn't relapse again. I knew exactly what to do to be completely anxiety free.
I decided to become an LAR coach because I knew it was my way of making a difference. It was a goal I set whilst I was at The Retreat and I qualified exactly a year to the day. TLM has given me the confidence to achieve my dreams and I am starting a new business venture, which is something I definitely wouldn't have done before my recovery. I am now free to enjoy my life and I feel very excited about the future.
If you would like to get in touch for one to one coaching sessions then please give me a call or you can fill out the questionnaire below. It's time for you to get excited about what your future holds.
Hi, my name is Ashleigh Malone and I am your local LAR Coach.
is Ashleigh and I am your LAR Coach for Glasgow and Central Scotland. Becoming an LAR Coach is massive achievement for me, after suffering with severe anxiety and recovering using The Linden Method. I have over ten years experience in Beauty, Spa and Holistic Therapy, I am deeply interested in all things health and wellbeing, so becoming an LAR Coach was the next step for me to go above and beyond to help as many people as I can.
My anxiety started one night in 2012; I experienced a massive panic attack. It literally came from nowhere, completely unexpected; I had never experienced anything like it. After being reassured by my husband that an ambulance wasn't necessary, as I wasn't having a heart attack or stroke, this is when I knew this was something else and that's what began my journey with anxiety.
I spent years trying out different ways of getting rid of my anxiety, nothing worked. Every road I took it just seemed to lead to dead ends. I'd endlessly search Google trying to find new therapies, remedies and self help advice. I became so knowledgeable about my anxiety that I could explain every symptom, every feeling. I was like a walking dictionary of anxiety and yet I still had no answers. The more I learnt about my anxiety, the more I realised that I had experienced high anxiety spells throughout my childhood.
I've never been one for unnecessary medication and that was something I stuck to throughout my journey with anxiety, so I tried everything else under the sun. Books, affirmations, meditation, therapies, diets, cutting out caffeine, gluten, alcohol and I think I managed to visit every 'ist' possible. The list of attempts to rid myself of anxiety was astounding and yet nothing helped me. If anything, it only ever made me feel so much worse. I'd go through spells of thinking I was normal, that everything was fine and then my symptoms would manifest into something else, another emotion.
I kept my anxiety a secret from most people, only my husband and mum knew. I was ashamed to let people know I was suffering, I'd force myself to attend social events, I'd travel for work and speak in meetings, however underneath the forced smiles I was suffering immensely. I would spend most nights in tears, worrying endlessly about my anxiety, suffering with panic attacks all night long, only to wake up the next morning and have to pretend as if everything was fine.
I was suffering so badly that I was no longer able to hide my symptoms, my family were very aware that there was something wrong and they were so desperate to help. My dad searched the Internet endlessly and that is where he came across The Linden Method. After researching and discussing, we decided that the best choice for me would be to attend the Four Day Retreat. This is where I finally began my journey to recovery.
TLM changed my life massively, and I am so pleased that I made the decision to let them help me. It was daunting but the best decision I ever made. I became aware of how much my anxiety stopped me from doing things when I had my daughter one year after TLM. I've become an LAR Coach so I can help others who were like me to become anxiety free. Recovery is so simple if you just trust in The Linden Method. If you are ready to get your life back, I would love to help, so please do get in touch.
Hi, my name is Catherine Colegrave and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hi, my name is Catherine and I’m passionate about helping my clients to overcome their anxiety disorder and create a fulfilling, fear-free life. Having suffered with anxiety myself I know all too well how it can affect many aspects of your life including your career, relationships, health and confidence. Anxiety can be completely debilitating, all consuming and relentless, however, it’s 100% curable when treated in the right way. I’m a mum of three children and after a life changing event my world as I knew it fell apart, I became anxious, fearful and felt utterly broken. Everything I previously enjoyed like going out for dinner, work, socialising became a source of fear and I spent so much time and energy trying to fix myself. I’ve experienced many different therapies in order to get rid of own my anxiety including CBT, NLP, Hypnosis and tapping amongst many others. I’ve also spoken to many people who’ve tried many weird and wonderful things in their desperation to be anxiety free. It’s only when I practised The Linden Method that I truly began to understand why I was keeping myself in the anxiety loop.
Anxiety is the inappropriate manifestation of the emotion of fear that gives rise to a number of, so called, anxiety disorders, such as GAD, panic disorder, disturbing thoughts, agoraphobia, etc. The good news is that recovery is possible. My role as an LAR Coach is to guide you through The Linden Method programme of recovery. I’ll be here to support and guide you through your journey leading you to freedom from your condition.
I’m deeply passionate about helping others to overcome their anxiety condition using The Linden Method, not only has The Method got rid of my inappropriate anxiety, but it’s helped me to lead a more balanced and fulfilled life. I want every sufferer to know that they don’t have to live with their condition or suffer in silence, it can be eliminated easily and permanently in order to become the person you want to be and live your life to the full.
Hi, my name is Craig Ansell and I am your local LAR Coach.
I have worked within The Armed Forces and Prison Service for the past 24yrs; a predominantly stressful environment. I can honestly say I know what stress is and how it effects the body and mind. However, I never realised that I would, one day have to deal with my own anxiety. I was always so strong and could deal with anything that life had to throw at me. Due to the lack of support and understanding within my work place, I never knew what was wrong with me until I came across The Linden Method. All became clear after reading about Charles Linden, I couldn’t believe it, I had actually suffered with many of the same symptoms that Charles Linden himself had suffered with.
This was the turning point for me as I knew I could now become anxiety free using The Linden Method. Looking forward with excitement in getting my life back I enrolled in one of the residential retreats that Charles and Beth facilitate to help people like you, become anxiety free. During this I absorbed all that was passed onto me and found this to be very productive and empowering, all of which enabled me to regain my life back. Within weeks I was back to my normal self and enjoying life once again.
You see my life had been in quite the dark place, not only for myself but my loved ones were suffering too. After attending the residential Retreat I now realised my passion was to help others who were suffering in those same circumstances. No one should have to go through what me or my loved ones had been through. After speaking with Beth Linden about my future and newfound passion, it wasn’t long before I was working towards being an LAR Coach.
Now as a qualified LAR Coach my desire is to help others overcome their anxiety related symptoms as well as helping those who are beginning to show signs of stress. Through coaching and supporting clients by giving them the tools to empower themselves in regaining structure and fulfilment once again in their beloved lives.

Hi, my name is Benjamin Tams and I am your local LAR Coach.
As a qualified counsellor, I am an LAR Coach based in the Oxfordshire area, and also work at the University of Oxford, on projects to promote the transition from conflict to peace.
I suffered with anxiety through childhood, and then chronic Pure O and OCD as well as other horrific symptoms through my adult life, mainly brought on by long-term stressful work and life circumstances.
Having experienced and recovered completely from these various debilitating forms of anxiety disorder, I want to coach clients on how to recover from their own anxiety.
Where talking therapies might not work, and can actually make anxiety symptoms worse, I can vouch that The Linden Method works to quickly and effectively eliminate anxiety.
Whether you have PTSD, Pure O, Generalized Anxiety, OCD or Agoraphobia, it doesn't matter because we can simply remove it through implementing The Linden Method.
In five sessions I shall explain the physiology of anxiety, the steps you must take to eliminate it, and how to put in the legwork to achieve a balanced, anxiety-free life. Your physical symptoms will then disappear, and instead of producing worst-case scenarios, your creative intellect can be diverted to unlock your new and amazing life.
Looking forward to working with you on your recovery!
Hi, my name is Stephen Hollier and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hi, I am Stephen and extremely proud to have become a Linden Anxiety Recovery Coach in the Worcestershire area. (UK).
I am married with two grown up sons aged 18 and 23 and I spend my spare time keeping fit in the gym, off road cycling, walking my cocker spaniel in the lovely Worcestershire countryside as well as enjoying spending time with a great circle of friends.
My passion is to share my knowledge through my own personal experience and assist other sufferers by leading them to the pathway to anxiety recovery.
I was your regular guy who enjoyed a full life consisting of a great job with a great circle of friends and a loving family. I had it all but in 2009 I had my first brush with anxiety; it felt like it came from nowhere although I was naturally a born worrier l was feeling constantly overwhelmed and fearful in normal everyday situations. I would often sit in my office and suffer random panic attacks. This soon progressed to social anxiety and I soon started to withdraw from things I had previously enjoyed. (I now know this to be a very typical behaviour of an anxiety sufferer).
I had no idea where these intrusive thoughts and symptoms were coming from, so I needed to find answers. I visited the doctor on several occasions, although I didn’t get any answers and was only advised to take a holiday. I had to plod on regardless and in 2010 the same symptoms returned worse than ever but with the development of the internet as a great source of information I finally started to find out what was happening to me. I discovered I had a Generalised Anxiety Disorder (“GAD”).
After reading all the symptoms and experiences of other people I delved into the subject of anxiety and searched in desperation to understand every symptom and experience. I spent lots of money purchasing books, signed up to numerous web sites offering quick fixes and learnt the skill of tapping (EFT). I also tried CBT and I attended weekly appointments with a Counsellor. None of these things worked and were in fact counter-productive as I soon found out. However, in my quest in searching for answers I came across The Linden Method and instantly connected to the explanation as it came across as real and a no nonsense genuine approach. Anxiety had become my life and it consumed me every waking hour which also had an impact on my friends and family. I decided to purchase the Linden Method programme and it quickly changed my life as my recovery happened so fast. I wasn’t the perfect pupil and didn’t totally follow the structured programme immediately but when I totally grasped it and lived by the set rules I made a full speedy recovery. Anxiety became my life and unfortunately my family’s but my recovery happened and It was down to The Linden Method. I now lead a completely normal life free from inappropriate anxiety and enjoy living life to the full including quality time with my family and friends, going to the gym, great country walks with my dog and eating at great restaurants to visiting places I have always wanted to see.
I continued to develop my knowledge and made a life changing decision to quit my job in 2015 to pursue my goals to help people live their lives to the fullest. Through a volunteering organisation I have become involved with open college network and have co-written a program aimed at helping young adults build resilience. I mentor the programme to young adults and I am also a qualified LAR anxiety recovery coach. Supporting people to anxiety recovery is so rewarding as nobody should have to live a life with inappropriate fear.
Anxiety is a learned behaviour albeit subconsciously but it can be quickly unlearned and you can once again lead a life free from inappropriate anxiety.
Hi, my name is Denise Bosque and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hello my name is Denise Bosque and I've spent most of my life as a professional actress. Just the job alone brings quite a considerable amount of stress. However, several years ago I suffered the most horrendous anxiety on stage in the middle of Romeo & Juliet! It was terrifying! I remembered thinking I'll never be able to act again, which was absolutely unthinkable to me. This is one of the reasons so many actors/celebrities choose never to go on stage again!
But the anxiety I first suffered happened long before that. When I was 24yrs my mother died. A few weeks later I had my first panic attack. I had no idea what was happening, I'd always been quite happy and balanced and suddenly this, why? I didn't have an answer.
I became a Therapist because I knew there had to be a complete cure somewhere out there, all the other therapies help, but where was the cure?
Then I discovered The Linden Method - finally, the missing piece of the jigsaw!
I was attracted to The Linden Method as about 75% of my clients present with some form of anxiety problem. I was one of four coaches who did the very first training programme with Charles Linden when it was launched. It felt great to really 'get it'! Often anxiety sufferers believe nothing will work for them because having tried most therapies they begin to lose faith.
Being a LAR Coach really resonates with me. There is nothing more satisfying or rewarding to see people recover from the suffering that anxiety causes. I feel so passionate about my work and really want to help motivate people and keep them on track to do The Linden Method recovery progamme and finally, feel, see and live the results. You don't have to suffer any more!
If you're ready to get your life back then I would be very happy to speak with you about this process and how it can help you. You can just complete the form below and I will be very happy to speak with you about your recovery.
Hi, my name is Mike Watts and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hello, my name is Mike Watts, and I’m your personal LAR Coach for London & South East.
I know what it’s like to suffer from Anxiety, but more importantly I know how to recover. The sleepless nights lying awake, worrying about how I will function from lack of sleep are a distant memory. Constant derealisation like I was in a dream or a bubble are a no longer an issue, I would question everything I did daily and held back on achieving many things due to this pointless condition. In fact, I’m more resourceful now than I’ve ever been.
Working together we will create an environment for change, followed by structure, compliance & support to drive away your high Anxiety condition. TLM has proven time and time again to create this change, and provide stability in every aspect in your life.
Aside from coaching I enjoy travelling, volunteering, and creating new life experiences.
Please complete the short questionnaire and let’s start your short journey to recovery freedom.
Hi, my name is Jane Dallison and I am your local LAR Coach.
Hello, my name is Jane Dallison and I am a Linden Anxiety Recovery Coach living in the Basingstoke, Newbury area.
A few years ago I was suffering from crippling high anxiety and panic attacks, which brought my life to a standstill. I could not work, stopped going out and missed out on many significant family occasions that I would previously have looked forward to and enjoyed. I tried everything that was offered to me in an attempt to recover with no success. I could not see a way out.
Purely by chance I saw Jemma Kidd on Lorraine Kelly’s breakfast TV programme talking about her own struggle with anxiety and how she recovered using The Linden Method. My Husband and I then began to look into The Linden Method and I decided to attend their residential programme.
The contrast between the car journey to The Retreat and the journey home was extreme. I arrived full of fear, trembling and withdrawn but left full of hope with the knowledge that I could begin to live my life again. The Linden Method provided me with the tools and a structure to eliminate inappropriate anxiety from my life. So, when I was given the opportunity to train to become a LAR Coach I jumped at the chance. I feel so passionate about helping others to prevent them from going down all the dead ends that I did. The Linden Method programme really does work and I am thrilled that now I too will be able to make a difference and be able to support sufferers on their journey to freedom from their anxiety.
I am married with 4 children, 3 step children and, 5 grandchildren. I love family life and enjoy anything art and crafty. I am currently mosaicking a full sized Totem Pole! I am now at a place in my life that I previously could only dream of.
Hi, my name is Sue McCarthy and I am your local LAR Coach.
I have spent my whole career working in the caring professions and I love it. I have worked as a Social Worker in the UK for over 16 years before moving to Canada in 2003, and since my move to Canada, I have worked in the post-secondary education system. I have become increasingly alarmed at the numbers of students diagnosed with anxiety disorders and the terrible impact this is having not only on their academic experience but in all aspects of their lives.
They are often lost in a health care system which struggles to help them but with no real results. I am passionate about what I do and so to develop a better understanding of anxiety disorders, and with a desire to find solutions, I stumbled across The Linden Method and I just knew that this was the right way forward. It made so much sense to me. Since then, I have been determined to become a LAR Coach. I was delighted when I was accepted on the 3-day conversion course and it was totally worth the trip from Canada to the UK.
Training with Charles was so insightful for me. I feel so inspired and confident in the knowledge that people no longer have to suffer and I am now better equipped to help people become anxiety free using the Linden Method. I highly recommend this training, as I believe the more trained people that are in place to provide early intervention the less people have to needlessly suffer. I truly want to make a difference in people’s lives and I am so thrilled that now I will be able to do just that with LAR Coaching.
Thank you Charles, for “putting yourself out there” and for making a difference in people’s lives.
Hi, my name is Tina Knight and I am your local LAR Coach.
I live in Bolton with my husband and two grown up sons.
I have been self employed for over 32 years and my job means that I rarely switch off, add being a mum to very busy young boys (at the time), topped with several bereavements lead me to suffer a horrific panic attack in my sleep. I ended up in A&E not knowing what had hit me! This then led to the start of generalised anxiety, I had no understanding of what was happening to me and sometimes I thought I was losing my mind, doctors offered no advice or support other than medication, which I refused.
Other than my husband and my mum, I kept my condition quiet as I felt weak and ashamed, my coping mechanism was to withdraw from the world, I started to say no to social events because I would feel so awful, I started to work from home to avoid work situations, I began to fear travelling until finally I knew if I wanted a full and happy life, and to be part of my children's life, then I had to make the change. I desperately wanted to free myself from this prison that was anxiety.
After doing some extensive research, I found The Linden Method and just reading Charles story gave me the courage to sign up to the programme and the rest is history, my life changed considerably, I took on new work challenges, I joined a women's group which introduced me to travel and new creative activities, my relationships with my family and friends where much happier.
I hope that by sharing my story it will give you the confidence to join The Linden Method and hopefully I will be here to take you through every step, until you too are anxiety free.
Looking forward to meeting you.
