Fear destroys lives. Phobias, flying, going out, meeting people, interviews, new relationships, lifts, escalators, MRI scanners, underground travel, Eurostar, crowds, packed buses and trains, post-road traffic incident, driving, being driven, examinations… the list appears endless. Combining the best of cognitive approaches to reclaiming the power of your mind while returning to that emotional and physical state we were all meant to enjoy - that of peace and calm and relaxation - this retreat puts you back in control of your life, your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviour.
General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is frequently and increasingly diagnosed by GP's but it's underlying thought processes which are responsible respond extremely well to alternative, non-drug therapies. The combined approach of this retreat eliminates the causes of the anxiety states and ensures new mindsets, new attitudes and new approaches to life in a calm, relaxed and confident manner. Results can be seen from the first session as clients are led away from the habits of years towards a completely new way of coping.
This programme is often combined with elements of the 'Anxiety Eliminated' retreat to ensure maximum resolution of issues.
"Content of this retreat was amazing! David has a unique way of changing ones perceptions of life. It was a truly amazing and life changing experience in every way. I feel I have left a different person."
"Last weekend I attended social events, the cumulative anticipation of which would normally have had me in a state of functional paralysis, and am thrilled to report that the presenting problem has been resolved. A very big thank you for enabling my release from prison."
"After David’s approach I’m now able to look at things in perspective. I’m so much calmer. I can just sit and relax and not get stressed. Presentations at work – no problem. I can control my emotions and not get worked up. It’s easy – no effort. I don’t worry about stuff; I’m not panicking; as for the IBS – it’s just gone!"

"My times of anxiety were getting less and my confidence level went from 10% to 90%. I started to see new perspectives on life and was developing a PMA – Positive Mental Attitude. My new job starts on Monday!"
Jonathan; 34yrs. Depression, negative thoughts, anxious, made redundant
"I feel a million times better. I've been going to places and doing things I used to avoid like the plague. I've regained control of my life. I can drive again; give presentations at work and go to parties at last."
Jane; 27yrs. Confidence and self-esteem
"My life was constant fear. I couldn’t cope, couldn’t eat. I was tired and depressed, uptight, worried. Racked with doubt and fears. After these sessions I was calm, no panics and my appetite was back – big time! When I saw my doctor she said I was “a different person”. Even things which would have had me break down in seconds I deal with. I can’t remember my last panic and I take life more philosophically, less serious, less tense. I’m enjoying being a mother."
Kay; 31yrs. Post-natal depression, anxiety
"From abject fear of using the telephone to reading at a friends' wedding! What a transformation. Handled a 36 minute phone call today with a stroppy customer. Didn't even worry me. Fine now in social situations and making new friends"
Constance; 20 yrs. Confidence and panics
