I have been trained by the very best in the field psychology and psychiatry and I endorse the Linden Method with highest regards.
As a psychologist that has been treating anxiety and depression for over 25 years, I can espouse the effectiveness of the Linden Method. It has its basis in the foundation of cognitive behavioral and cognitive restructuring theory which is the treatment of choice of all anxiety and depressive disorders.
For those of you that have suffered from either anxiety or depression, you know that the medication only serves to numb one's experience of the real world. You also know that talk therapy cannot give you the tranquility that you desperately need. You most likely have spent thousands of dollars of health insurance money and money of your own to find peace of mind.
The Linden Method gives you all the tools you need to work on your issues on an hour-by-hour basis. The beauty of this method is that you are the master of your own destiny. You monitor your own progress and rely on other's feedback to insure progress. Unlike other self-help programs, the Linden Method give you one year of ongoing support from a professional like me to help you in places where you might get stuck.
Mr. Linden is so confident in it's efficacy that he is willing to give you a one year guarantee or he will refund your money. Read the testimonials and give the Linden Method a trial and you will see for yourself.
I have been trained by the very best in the field psychology and psychiatry as you can see by my credentials, and I endorse the Linden Method with highest regards. It give you all that you need, however, you must be willing to follow through. As in all treatment methods, compliance is mandatory. Haven't you suffered enough? The cure is at your disposal. Why wait?

I believe the Linden Method is an outstanding natural approach to eliminating anxiety and panic attacks.
I'm a holistic health care practitioner and doctor of chiropractic in San Antonio, Texas. I've been in private practice since 1992, and over the course of my practice, I have come to recognize the importance of emotions in a person's overall health.
The Linden Method is by far the most complete of the self-help programs I have come across that is specifically intended for eliminating panic attacks, anxiety attacks, panic disorder, and phobias.
In addition to providing an overall understanding of panic attacks, anxiety, phobias, and similar conditions, the Linden Method provides a step-by-step plan for eliminating panic attacks and anxiety and getting off of whatever anti-anxiety medications someone might be taking.
One big bonus that the Linden Method includes that none of the other programs reviewed do is that purchasers are given 1 year of unlimited email and telephone support with counseling professionals who are experts in using the Linden Method techniques. So, you're not just on your own to figure out how to make the system work for you. If you're having trouble, they have experts on hand to help you through any sticking points you may encounter. This bonus provides a tremendous value over the other products reviewed.
Finally, the Linden Method comes with a very impressive 1 YEAR money back guarantee. Most reputable products come with a guarantee, and all of the products reviewed here give you a pretty good opportunity to try the product and return it for a refund if you aren't satisfied with it. But it's rare to see any health-related product that gives you a full year to get a refund.
Other than that minor issue, I believe the Linden Method is an outstanding natural approach to eliminating anxiety and panic attacks and it is a tremendous value for the price, especially since it includes unlimited access to professional assistance and comes with a full 1 year money-back guarantee. --Dr George Best Ph.d
The Linden Method creates a full and successful recovery using targeted and supportive resources that are only available through this Method. The Linden Method is, in my opinion, the solution to anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, and all their associated symptoms.
I have watched as many thousands of Linden Method clients have found full recovery and the success isn't isolated, if the client does the program correctly, it works every time. It's so, so simple to do, even children of seven and eight don't struggle. Other therapies don't produce these results that is for sure. --Jenny Saunders, BSc, MSc Consultant Psychologist & Life Coach Anxiety disorders expert and educator

Now for the bad parts... What he is charging for this book is downright criminal. Most of this information about anxiety is available online for free- or from inexpensive books. This nine pillars are not as helpful as the method touts. Not talking about anxiety with your therapist is counterproductive- as diversion is only going to get you so far. Anyone that has a problem with anxiety needs to learn emotion regulation, mindfulness, and skills to deal with negative or intrusive thoughts (this is especially true for OCD). The crux of the nine pillars is just to not use any other methods to try and help yourself- which just makes no sense. Different things are going to work better for different people. For example, exercise can be a cure in itself for some anxiety sufferers- while for others it can be part of the solution but has to be combined with other things such as diet, meditation, medication, etc. Finally, his chapter about medication is just not medically accurate. HE may have had a problem with benzodiazepine medications and addiction- but millions of people use these medications responsibly for anxiety relief and do not have the same outcome. Scaring people away from taking their prescriptions is not exactly sound advice. While I do agree that people are over medicated when it comes to anxiety- and studies show that CBT works as well as if not better than most SSRI and TCA medications- every person is different and some need the help that medication can give in the short term.
Overall- there are way better programs out there. The book 'At Last A life' by Paul David is one of the best personal stories of recovery. Also, any CBT workbook such as by Bourne or Burns will give you the basic skills that can be used with a trained CBT therapist or stand alone for those with less severe problems. Save your money- this is just not worth it because of the high cost.
This is a complete SCAM. He gives you 9 pillars that are more about how his method id the ONLY method. One is to not talk to your doctor or therapist. You cant talk about your anxiety or panic to anyone. If you feel you need help then you are to call his support line. I NEVER got as hold of someone on his support line. I called different times of the day thinking it was a time issue as i'm from the US and still no one answers. I left a message on the machine and no response. I have tried to email Charles Linden and again I get no answer back. I am unhappy and want to return this package that I paid $197. I am told that I have to ship it priority to the UK even though it was shipped to me from Texas. Shipping it will cost me another $137. Since I wasn't getting any response if there is anything else cheaper I can do I resorted to asking Charles Linden on his facebook page. He deleted my comment then blocked me completely. I guess he doesn't want potential customers knowing the truth. The only chapter about actually downgrading the panic says to breathe, yoga, and splash water on your face. I paid $197 for advice that I already know about and do. Again this is a SCAM don't fall for it. Save your money.
