“I will only ever provide truly uncompromised, resources. If I believe it will deliver 100%, I’ll launch – Our team know me best for the line ‘Under-promise and over-deliver".  Charles Linden. MD and Founder of the Linden Tree group of companies

Charles Linden’s ‘no compromise’ attitude has maintained the company’s reputation and integrity through ​over 20 years and millions of people, from around the world, accessing our resources, programs and products.

The organisation is founded on a policy of providing solutions - Every resource has been developed with recovery in mind and nothing provided is based on assumption, suposition or fake science.

A deep understanding of anxiety conditions, coupled with decades of experience as sufferers and as recovery practitioners, ​our team only launch what works based on three vital pillars - SCIENCE - EXPERIENCE - OUTCOMES

​Everything provided has been tested, modified and re-tested to make sure it is simple to implement and creates fast, emotive results.

The program​s are so simple and accessible that people often don't know they are doing them!

Many of our young clients are guided by their parents, unaware that they are recovering - and suddenly, they are.

In every aspect of the business, from product development to support services, Charles and his team of Specialist Consultants work tirelessly to maintain the consistently high standards clients have come to expect, on which our international reputation is built.

​The company’s many hundreds of programs, CDs, Audio files, video and written media resources are probably the most accessed in the field globally and Charles Linden’s media presence globally is untouched by anyone else in ​mental health. ​

The core product, The Linden Method, has been re-developed, amended and modified many times since 1997 and as technology has moved forward, ​the team has utilized the most up-to-date electronic delivery platforms to ensure that all clients get what they need when they need it.

The Linden Method has been used by over 2​50,000 people over ​22 years and has been independently tested by Martin Jensen formerly at Kingston University and now at Copenhagen University – he found it to be the most effective anxiety programme available.

The trial concluded that the average improvement experienced was from 18.28 (severe) to 2.84 (normal) using the international GAD-7 anxiety score.According to these results, The Linden Method was shown to be 100% effective at reducing anxiety and just under 100% effective at returning sufferers to normal anxiety levels.

Our client support is unmatched globally.

Only employing qualified, accredited and registered mental health professionals, ​Linden Tree present to clients an opportunity to interact with, what we believe to be, the world’s most experienced and qualified anxiety recovery specialists.

Accessible, seamless, high quality guidance is vital to the success of the programs and ​Linden Tree has created a unique and uncompromising solution to fit around the client’s requirements and lifestyles.

The big difference...

Conventional anxiety support resources are restricted to providing support, reassurance and coping strategies through the conventional delivery of psychotherapeutic devices such as CBT which encourage the client to discover their own strategies but ​our support is entirely different.

The programs empower the client but also focus on providing them with very specific, simple and targeted devices and structure.

Helping private and government healthcare to deliver

The aspiration and focus of our work is on fulfilling the needs of private and public healthcare, this includes:    Elimination of the NHS’ current diagnosis to treatment waiting time (18 weeks) – Our  clients commence day one (Statistic correct  July 2015)   

Reduction of the ongoing responsibility of anxious patient care and support   
Reduction/elimination of ambulance call outs due to high anxiety and panic attacks   
Reduction of ‘frequent fliers’ utilising expensive resources   
Reduction in prescriptions through our medication reduction ethos/guidance   
Reduction of inappropriate GP appointments   
Reduction of clinical referrals to psychiatric care and/or hospitalization   
Reduction of referrals to mental health resources including counselling, day hospital etc.   
Increase in our clients returning to their workplace/school   
Reduction in family issues arising from the patient’s condition   
On-going life coaching and wellness coaching


Anxiety Recovery Retreats

Residential & Workshop Recovery Programs

“The Anxiety Recovery Retreats have truly set the standard for residential anxiety care. What we have created is the most incredible experience that, even I, hadn’t envisaged. When we created the format, I knew it would be the ‘no compromise’ resource I wanted but the curative results and life-changes we witness are unprecedented and emotive. We all feel so privileged to be part of it.” Charles Linden. MD and developer of the Retreat programs.

The Anxiety Recovery Retreat format and course content is so unique, so empowering, reassuring, enjoyable and curatively successful that clients wish the experience would never end. Clients are prepared to re-enter their own environments, carrying with them the tools they need to become anxiety disorder free. The course content is administered by one of our lead educators with the assistance of a core team of specialists from across a variety of practices.

Clients receive anxiety recovery guidance and structure, coupled with a raft of wellbeing advice from Coaches covering posture, nutrition, relaxation and a variety of life-coaching practices.

Plans are in place for international expansion of the residential programs format. International organizations are interested in launching the Retreats formats in the USA and Far East. One of our company directors is UK liaison for the Malaysian Government and Tourist Board and is in discussion with the Malaysian government about the launch of Retreats in Kuala Lumpur.

Fast, simple rollout of the Retreats format in multiple locations internationally can be achieved quite quickly and it is our aim to coordinate two East and West Coast USA, two UK, two Central Europe and two Eurasian Retreats per month from January 2015. In 2015, we intend to roll out Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South African based Workshop programs.

There is no doubt that comparatively, what is experienced at the Retreats is unique and an enormous departure from the expected clinical environments normally associated with anxiety disorders treatment but clients state clearly that the Retreat experience is nothing at all like the experiences they have had in private or public health service residential facilities.


​Retreats Director, ​Beth Linden

​​Beth's background was formerly in broadcast TV production. Beth was co-owner of one of the UK's leading production and post-production houses but in 2006, she decided to break away from TV, choosing to help Charles and the team to create the world's first and only residential recovery programmes. As you will see from the hundreds of success stories, endorsements and testimonials, the programme is second to none. The recovery results experienced are unamtched globally, which is why people come from all over the world to attend. Beth works tirelessly to provide the most unique experience to all clients. The residential Retreats programme has now been added to with our one day workshops and childhood recovery programmes.

Therapeutic Teas

Delicious teas with measurable, scientific benefits…

All of our teas have been developed and refined to maximise their therapeutic benefits, to deliver correct quantities of the therapeutic ingredients and to provide you with a pleasurable drinking experience.1000’s of years of use… the basis of all that is good in medicineHerbal teas have been used for thousands of years and modern pharmaceuticals developed out of the use of plant extracts for medicine, stripping out the beneficial elements and introducing, often harmful, synthesised chemicals.

A lasting legacy of physical and psychological benefitsThe tradition of herbal tea making has provided us with masses of robust data around what does and doesn’t provide measurable, genuine physical and mental health benefits. Our teas have been developed to specifications that have been tried and tested over hundreds of years and also by us, through over 20 years of practice.

These teas work because the science lines up! Just try them and see!

I liken anxiety's relationship to fear with diarrhoea's relationship to bowel movements...
one's 'order', the other 'disorder'... I show people how to remove the disorder... erasing fear diarrhoea!
