A collection of medical statements about the Linden Method
“As a Chartered Psychologist, I have been working within the fields of psychology, psychotherapy and
mind-body medicine for over 15 years. During that time I have encountered many treatments seeking to effectively
eradicate anxiety and panic disorders, however, none come close to the efficacy and potency of The Linden Method.
Rather than merely attempting to remove symptoms by numbing them or working in opposition to them,
The Linden Method understands the nature of anxiety and panic disorders and its success is based on sound
theoretical principles as well as a comprehensive and robust package of tools and techniques that, when applied,
provide all that is required for the complete alleviation of these highly debilitating conditions.
I was familiar with and impressed by The Linden Method long before ever meeting with Charles and Beth Linden.
Since meeting them I have been extremely impressed with their knowledge, dedication, professionalism and compassion.
I hold them and The Linden Method in the highest regard and recommend it to anyone suffering from anxiety and

“You may or may not have heard of the Linden Method, in a nutshell it is a system that reprograms
your brain not to have a panic or anxiety attack. It does this by targeting the causes at a brain level.
Your Amygdala is the area of your brain that triggers off the anxiety sensations. If you target this
area then you can stop those anxious feelings, and hence stop panic attacks, along with other fears and
phobias such as agoraphobia.
Now there are many methods out there, but the Linden Method is something special.
I have been in private practice since 1991, helped many a client with their stress or anxiety condition.
Charles Linden’s knowledge is extensive. He is an ex-sufferer, so knows exactly where you are coming from.
As for the program, well it is great. The successes occur quickly, for some relief is almost instant,
for others you may need to wait for a few days or up to a few weeks to get full success. But if you’ve
suffered for years, then a few weeks is worth waiting for.
The Linden Method is very simple; you are not overwhelmed with techniques you have to do. In fact this
is very simple to follow and implement.
The method is backed by science, numerous psychologists around the world recommend this program and it
has over 130,000 success stories.”

NHS Trial Feedback
After the initial meeting with Charles Linden during the National Health
Service trials of The Linden Method, the four young people were asked to
complete feedback developed by the NHS specifically for the trial.
Below are scans of those forms as completed by the subjects. We have ‘blacked
out’ names for confidentiality. Bear in mind that these four people were
referred to us as ‘problem cases’ because they hadn’t responded to the
medications, counselling, support and psychotherapy they had been receiving,
in most cases, over a number of years. Charles was with them initially for
just one hour each and the results. Read for yourself how it changed
“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?”
Dr Romulo Valdez Jr., Ph.D.
“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 counselling 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
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

“Charles has worked extremely
hard and has succeeded to pull himself back from what seemed like a
hopeless situation and now he shows others how to do the same.”

“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, OCD and all their associated symptoms.
Other therapies don’t produce these results that is for sure.”
Jenny Saunders BSc, MSc
“The Linden Method doesn’t dwell on giving blame or looking for
reasons, it simply gives you the answers you need right now to defeat your
anxiety and return quickly to lasting wellness, anxiety free.”

“I reviewed this product as a former panic anxiety sufferer and
as a journalist who has studied the topic in-depth. My experience with the
Canadian Mental Health Association made me even more aware of just how
widespread panic and anxiety are across the country and around the globe.
He shows you how to make the transition from your usual support systems,
like doctors and medications, to self-support. Replace your old life,
burdened by anxiety and all of its symptoms, to become anxiety and
“In my experience as a Nurse Practitioner and PTSD counsellor especially, I believe that The Linden
Method is the most common sense approach to anxiety disorders including panic attacks available.
I believe that the method is the ‘bare bones’ of the solution, the ‘Roadmap’ as Charles calls it. In truth,
the method is not only the solution but a very simple to follow and the most impressively successful solution
This method puts other solutions to shame, it really does. I have seen CBT, medicinal therapies and other
so called cures fail; Charles has cured the sufferers after they had given up hope. There is no other method
that I would trust and have as much faith in as this.”
Jane Griffiths, Nurse Practitioner and PTSD counsellor

These research findings confirm all of our research and theories into the way the amygdala
works and confirms clearly that anxiety is caused 100% by ‘memories of fear’. It then goes
on to say that they would like to find a genetic or drug solution which would STOP the
amygdala from signalling to the frontal cortex! No need folks, we have found a way to
Extracts from the British journal Nature, point the way toward possible
treatments for anxiety disorders.
“The amygdala, a large structure deep within each cerebral hemisphere,
is the place where the brain stores memories of fear,” said University of
Southern California neuroscientist Richard F. Thompson, co-author of the Nature
“In the presence of threatening stimuli, the amygdala signals to the
prefrontal cortex, triggering the expression of fearful behavior”
Researchers at USC and the Université de Bordeaux (France) trained laboratory
mice by sounding a tone and then administering a small electric shock. The mice
soon learned to associate the tone with the impending shock and froze in fear
as soon as they heard it. Simultaneously, the researchers detected changes in
the electrical impulses measured by electrodes implanted in the subjects’
prefrontal cortex. When the amygdala was then surgically removed, both the
freezing behavior and the altered neuronal activity disappeared.
Lead author René Garcia, of Bordeaux’s Laboratoire de Neurosciences Cognitives,
designed and completed the experiment in Thompson’s USC laboratory during the
summer of 1999. “While a mouse’s brain is far smaller than a human’s, it
has essentially the same structures and operates in analogous ways,”
“The prefrontal cortex acts as a kind of ‘executive office,’ controlling
other parts of the brain. It makes decisions that determine how you will react.
Memories of fear are stored in the amygdala, which codes them into signals and
transmits those signals to the frontal cortex for action.”
“Why are you afraid when you’re walking alone in the dark and hear
footsteps behind you? You have learned to be afraid. Nearly all of our fears
are learned fears.” Anxiety disorders, such as panic attacks and phobias,
are expressions of your memories of fear”, said Thompson.
“If we could find a drug or genetic treatment that would stop the
amygdala from signaling to the frontal cortex, then we could effectively treat
anxiety disorders,” he suggested.
Thompson, director of the USC Program in Neural, Informational and Behavioral
Sciences, holds the William M. Keck Chair in Biological Sciences and Psychology
in the USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
In addition to Garcia and Thompson, USC neurobiologist Michel Baudry and
Université de Bordeaux neuroscientist Rose Marie Vouimba were co-authors of
the Nature article.
