    I would agree with this. It is at least based on CBT so it is better than most stuff out there, but why not get true CBT for less money or do it on your own through CBT based books like the one by Obitz. The TEA form alone will help most people if they work on them daily.
    I do agree about authentic CBT and the value of doing the TEA forms daily. Been a big help for me getting it back together

    The Linden Method may be based on tried-and-true CBT. But there is another problem that I have with it besides expense. Specifically, the way that it overpromises results. As I understand it, the Linden Method speaks of being cured in mere days. But this is NEVER the way it happens. And expecting these kinds of results can be VERY harmful, as it can cause you to give up on the treatment. When undergoing ANY kind of CBT (whether it be TEA forms, exposure, or acceptance), you MUST be realistic about the time frame in which recovery will occur. Typically, anxiety recover occurs over a time frame of months to years (rather than days or weeks). There are simply no quick fixes for anxiety disorder.

    I did not realize it promised a cure in days; That's just ridiculous! I totally agree that over promising hurts more people than it helps by creating unrealistic expectations. There are no quick fixes and making ridiculous claims like that hurt everyone.

    Thank God we have people like Robbed to call out the over promisers (is that even a word?). Anyway having been suckered by many get quick cures before finding something legitimate it really boils my blood to hear about alleged quick fixes for profit like the Linden method that are ripping people off :evil:

    hi there

    hi there

    perhaps it would be possible to get free counselling from students who are in theri final year or something?

    sometimes they need to build up their hours. and will do it for a very low price or maybe for free

    just a thought

    you might find my blog useful

    Depression and anxiety is a mind thing, once you change your thinking, you have the power to think whatever you want...

    you don't NEED to go through this, you don't NEED to feel like this, by changing you thinking subconciously without paying an arm and a leg, you can change your life around completely....
