"I tried everything. The Linden Method, the Midwest Center's method by Lucinda Bassett, a number of psychiatrists, AND numerous medications. Nothing worked for me. But after only a few months with you and your program, I'm 90% recovered and well on my way to full recovery. I can't thank you enough. I'm recommending you to everyone I know."

Reading good self-help information has proven to be just as effective as medication in the treatment of anxiety and most depression disorders.

For more entrenched anxiety or depression conditions, however, self-help information may not be enough to bring about full or lasting recovery.

Many people can achieve partial recovery using self-help information, but often the assistance of an experienced personal coach/counselor/therapist is required to attain normal and lasting health.

For example, a recent study from Sweden found that those who accessed internet-based self-help information that was coupled with weekly telephone counseling/therapy sessions produced better results than those who didn’t.

The study’s summary states that compared with the control group (those who didn’t access this type of help) the treated participants experienced greater reductions on measures of general and social anxiety, avoidance, and depression. In fact, because they found this approach so effective, 93 percent of the participants finished their treatment, and one year later all improvements had been maintained. The study’s conclusions state that based on their findings, there is sufficient evidence to support the use of internet-based treatment supplemented by weekly telephone calls.

A similar study was done with individuals who experienced depression. The results were similar.

We’ve known this for years, because this has been our experience as well. We’ve found that those who combine self-help information with weekly coaching/counseling see a more complete recovery with lasting results.

Naturally, the better the self-help information and coaching/counseling expertise, the better the results will be.

We’ve also found that the best source of coaching/counseling help comes from those who have personally experienced and conquered entrenched anxiety and depression in their own lives. This kind of personal experience is extremely beneficial to those who are struggling with the same types of conditions. The coach’s/counselor’s personal experience provides a significant advantage over those who may have only learned how to treat anxiety or depression.

Many of our clients tell us how much more helpful it is knowing we’ve been through it ourselves, and how comforting it is to talk with people who KNOW how they feel and truly understand what they are going through.

"Thank you, Marilyn. I have given your website to many as I feel you have been the best coach that I have had and have gotten the most in the quickest amount of time."

"I've learned more talking with you for 60 minutes than I have over the last 12 years talking with others including psychiatrists, psychologists and counsellors. I can't believe how helpful you've been. You are truly a God-send and an answer to my prayers. God bless."
E. M., Canada approved personal coaches/counselors use a cognitive approach (talk therapy). Studies have shown that cognitive therapies provide a more thorough and lasting recovery. Presently, it is the ONLY treatment that provides lasting relief with a very low incidence of rebound. It also is the only approach that produces a recovery rate of well over 90 percent.

If you’ve been struggling with a stress, anxiety, sleep, depression, or other behavioral disorders, personal coaching may be the most effective option for you.

Personal Coaching/Counseling produces results. Our approved coaches/counselors are living testimonies that this approach works, time and time again.

"Your personal coaching has been immensely helpful. I can't thank you enough. Why doesn't anyone else know what you know? I'm glad we connected. I look forward to each conversation. Many thanks!!"
R. T., France

"I've been trying to self-help myself for years, and still couldn't find my way back to "normal" health. I then started with the personal one-on-one approach and it's made a world of difference. I'm finally experiencing the kind of recovery I always looked for. Thanks Jim. I'm thrilled that I can finally see a light at the end of the long dark tunnel."
A. S., England

Some of the many advantages of working with a personal coach/counselor/therapist includes, a therapist can:

  • Help you more clearly understand your specific situation, condition, and circumstances.
  • Help you more clearly understand your symptoms.
  • Help you understand why you developed your condition.
  • Identify and illuminate the underlying factors associated with your condition.
  • Help you identify and understand the reasons why your anxiety condition persists.
  • Help you become unstuck in your recovery efforts.
  • Define a personalized recovery program specifically for you.
  • Provide on-going question and answer support.
  • Provide on-going direction and reassurance.
  • Provide ongoing accountability.
  • Help spouses, family members, and friends understand the seriousness of these conditions, and offer them practical tips on how they can best help you recover.
  • Pinpoint trouble areas that you may not recognize as being significant or delaying your progress.
  • Help you remain accountable to your recovery program so that you fully recover and return to your normal and healthy life.

Because these therapists have been through these conditions themselves and know how debilitating these conditions can be, they are fully committed to helping you regain your normal and lasting health, too. They know the pain and suffering that these conditions can cause, but they also know the joy and freedom lasting recovery can bring.

Now you can get the help you desire, when you need it, and in the comfort of your home or office.
