The attendees visably changed over the three days. Their moods lifted, their senses of humour returned, they started looking more alive, alert and calm. The change was wonderful and dramatic.
I always knew that direct contact with sufferers over just a few days would provide us with the seamless access we would need to expedite the curative process and when we came up with this format, I believed wholeheartedly that the attendees would respond – but it exceeded all of my expectations. Who’d have thought that they would leave so fulfilled and overwhelmed with the progress they made.
I was sad as they all left the Retreat… it was like saying goodbye to family. The attendees from Moscow, Warsaw and Norway left first in order to catch flights and the British ones stayed a little longer.
Beth and I were overwhelmed as they gave us gifts and vowed to spread the word about their experiences.
The venue is simply amazing. The food was amazing, the staff were incredibly helpful and the homely environment was just so comfortable. The dog and cat at the venue also got lots of attention.
Our first Anxiety Recovery Retreat has been a resounding success to be repeated in February and from then on, hopefully, regularly throughout the year.

My emotions are overflowing as I attempt to put into words what can only be experienced… when you love someone with all your heart and all your soul, it is the most difficult thing in the world to watch your loved one suffer through the unbearable anguis of anxiety. You would give anything to stop the pain. I can, without an ounce of hesitation, say that the Charles Linden Recovery Retreat has become the answer to our prayers! To witness the absolutely beautiful metamorphisis of enlightenment that has occured is nothing short of miraculous! Our lives hae forever been touched by the most extraordinary professionals (Beth, Charles, Jenny and ´the unforgettable Gareth´´). They are the most caring, loving and genuine people you will ever want to meet and have renewed our faith in humanity. It is impossible to adequately express the amount of gratitude I feel for this life changing opportunity. After trying endless methods, I am now convinced that this is the ONLY answer to complete recovery!!!!

To Beth, Charles and everyone at the Linden Retreat. Many thanks for sharing your experiences with us, the partners of anxiety sufferers. This Retreat has been a fantastic opportunity to share our experiences with people from several countries. It has been very beneficial to me and will enable me to provide support to my wife in her battle to live a normal life. She has lived with anxiety for many years and will go on to make a full recovery, I believe. Thank you to all concerned.

The Retreat was excellent. Speakers were gifted, knowledgeable and understanding. I left feeling positive for the first time in years – I CAN DO IT. These people have stood in my shoes and therefore really know their stuff. The Retreat was the first time in a long time I felt relieved and left feeling – “bring it on!”. Best money I have EVER spent. Can´t recommend it enough!
A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE. I have gained the new materials to have a good happy life without anxiety.
