Our 1 day Anxiety Recovery Workshop will uncover the real causes of anxiety and teach you how to become anxiety free.
From the moment you sign-up we will support you on your journey beyond anxiety symptoms. We will walk you through the process and show you everything you need to finally be rid of the anxiety that is plaguing your life and inhibiting your freedom.
We understand that when you suffer from anxiety the prospect of attending a group workshop with people you don’t know could seem overwhelming. But you will be amazed at how the group experience can be incredibly supportive and transformative. We will facilitate your recovery from anxiety in an environment that is comfortable, informal, light and fun. You will be gently guided to understand what causes anxiety and what you need to do to stop it and prevent it from returning.
You are going to learn at the workshop:
- What really causes anxiety
- How negative thoughts are a ‘symptom’ of anxiety, not the cause – so changing your thoughts will not eradicate your anxiety symptoms
- How to understand and ‘translate’ what your symptoms mean
- The biggest hurdles people face in overcoming anxiety, and how to avoid them
- How to tap into your innate ability to reverse the symptoms of anxiety and experience more of who you are, so you can live the life you want
- How to unleash your innate potentials and how you can use this to develop health, wellness and self-esteem
You’ll also get:
- Follow-up email support after the bootcamp so we can help you to implement what you learn and experience at the workshop
- Membership of the private Facebook group where we offer additional advice and guidance, and also gives you the opportunity to share experiences with other Bootcampers
- A copy of our Overcoming Fear program
“I Just want the two of you to know that the workshop has been life changing for me!”
“This process to me was like removing my shackles and becoming physically and emotionally free. I rejoined the human race better able to roll with the punches and more importantly, ready to celebrate life’s joys.”
“Anxiety and panic attacks had plagued me for years and seemed to be getting worse and more frequent. As a professional singer, good health and vitality is critical. I experienced quite a range of anxiety symptoms but the most significant impact on my life was how anxiety affected my voice and ability to sing. Kyle’s program was the key to helping me heal my anxiety. I’m happy to say I’m back singing and loving it!”
The support we give you starts the moment you sign-up and ends when you are free from anxiety symptoms. This program is different from anything else you will have tried.
Let me go into a little more detail…
Isn’t Anxiety Just Lots of Fear?
Before I go any further in talking about the Workshop program and who I am, I think it is very important to be clear about one important piece of theory. Symptoms of anxiety and panic are not the same as emotions of fear – these include worry, nervous, apprehension, concern, etc.
In everyday life we tend to talk about anxiety symptoms and conditions as being the same as emotions of fear, nervousness and worry. This is confusing for the simple reason that anxiety symptoms are not merely amplified fear, even though this can be what they feel like in many instances.
Anxiety is something of an umbrella term that covers quite a wide range of symptoms and experiences. In some instances this symptoms and conditions might relate to emotions of fear but in other instances they do not.
This is why it is entirely possible to rid ourselves of anxiety symptoms whereas we cannot, and should not try to rid ourselves of healthy emotions, because they play a vital feedback role in our day to day experience of life.
Let me tell you a story…
In fact, let me tell you my story. If you don’t know me, you might be wondering who I am and what qualifies me to help you on your journey from anxiety to health and happiness. So here’s a little about me:
When I started my career as a psychologist I worked in management consulting, helping individuals and businesses perform more effectively, overcome obstacles and attain coherence and flow. When I moved into therapy, I gained a greater insight into the underlying issues and challenges that individuals face in life, and the patterns and causes that lead to the experience of anxiety, panic, stress and other conditions and health challenges. I had trained in a variety of different modalities including psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, cognitive therapy, tapping therapy, NLP and counselling.
While encountering many great ideas and programs, I had a strong feeling that something was missing, that there was a bigger picture going on just out of sight, and the techniques and approaches I had learned weren’t enough to unveil this bigger picture of root causes and their relationship with the nature of human experience.
I had experienced anxiety and depression in my late teens and early twenties and somehow managed to pull myself through without really know what I had done to get my self anxiety free.
As I reflected on my own experiences, worked with clients in my clinic, and engaged in lengthy discussions with colleagues, I could see patterns emerging that I hadn’t learned about in my training. I was used to working directly on symptoms, using techniques to try and stop or suppress the symptoms. But the patterns revealed the true cause of anxiety and with it, a new path to symptom-free health.
Having gained experience and expertise in effectively treating a wide range of health challenges from depression to chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia, I began to see there was a simple truth that underpinned all of these health challenges: a disconnection from the essence of who we really are is the cause of suffering— a separation for self, that deep inner wisdom that is the essence of who we are.
There is a resonance, an energy-flow that is us. When we’re in this flow, we are fully being ourselves, we are experiencing and expressing ourselves through everything we say and do. This is most obvious in children, as we see them respond authentically in each moment of life. As we grow, we often encounter situations in life that take us away from who we are; we shift our resonance and become disconnected from our flow.
The Four Core Element Energy-Flow Model
There are Four Core Elements that lock anxiety symptoms in place. When we address these four core elements, we not only banish anxiety symptoms, we open up to the possibility of experiencing ourselves in a whole new way. The Four Core Element Energy-Flow model comprises:
- Fear and Avoidance of Symptom Triggers. Anxiety is deeply uncomfortable so it can be a natural reaction to avoid situations and events that seem to cause anxiety. Avoidance can lead to more symptoms, so carefully navigating through this is the first step.
- Rewiring the Emotional System. Our emotion has a massive impact on body and brain. Blockages and imbalances within the emotional system are significant causes and contributors to anxiety conditions as well as a huge range of other chronic health challenges. Yet, our understanding of the nature of emotion and how to effectively process and regulate it remain poor. This element focuses in revealing the true nature of emotion and critically how to connect with it and facilitate a flow.
- Wearing the Mask: As we move through life and seek to get along, fit in, be accepted and do well, we unconsciously block our true nature and end up being more of who we are not than who we are. Anxiety symptoms often tell us when we are covering up who we are, or are disconnected from our authentic core. Reconnecting with our core and removing the shackles of who we used to be takes us a step closer to being anxiety free.
- Control & Creation: Whether we like it or not, we play a significant role in the creation of our experience of life and reality. However, when shackled with anxiety we feel out of control, restricted, as if we have lost our freedom. Learning how to create inner freedom and design our lives is the final piece of the puzzle.
How Is the 4 Core Element Energy-Flow Program Unique?
Conventional approaches to anxiety seek to medicate. Many physicians may tell you that your anxiety is something you just have to live with. Counselling or mainstream psychological approaches may have you manipulate or change your thought patterns, while alternative practices may seek to have you relax or practice mindfulness. While there is value in some of these approaches, most fail to reach that deeper understanding of the nature of human beings and the underlying cause of anxiety and panic.
The Four Core Element Model uncovers a different perspective on the cause of anxiety conditions and embraces a full understanding of the nature of the human condition. It puts you back in the driver’s seat to return to your natural healthy self. Your natural state is to be connected and happy; all that’s needed is a little guidance to help you find the way back to your default setting.
The Anxiety Recovery Workshop is NOT a program about creative visualisation, positive thinking, affirmations or goal setting. These ideas and principles are based on changing the thoughts in your mind, and as a result they keep you locked in your mind. While these practices can be valuable at one level, one of the key lessons I’ve learned in my research and practice is that altering your thinking patterns is not powerful enough to create deep and lasting change. In fact, in many instances staying in the mind and attempting to change thinking can exacerbate anxiety symptoms.
This Program teaches you how to implement the Four Core Element Model. I will help you embrace a more expansive paradigm of life that blends science, psychology, quantum theory and consciousness. This may sound complex, but when we see ourselves as vibrational beings all connected in a field of potential, it opens the door to applying SIMPLE concepts that can shift us to a new level of experience.
“Kyle has done a superb job in helping our 13-year-old son address his anxiety. Kyle has built a close and trusting relationship with him, which makes him very relaxed in talking through his challenges and anxieties. Kyle was able to make rapid progress, giving him practical, down to earth advice. As our son has gained in confidence, the visits to Kyle have become less frequent, but every time he goes back he makes further progress. We are indebted to Kyle and his calm practical advice.”
~ Simon, UK
“Thank you so much for all your help. With your program, I have experienced some really wonderful and remarkable changes in my life and in my relationships. The originality of what you are doing really comes across, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. There is such tremendous value in what you are doing. I have been to many, many therapists, energy healers, acupuncturists, naturopaths, etc., trying to recover from first the anxiety and then stress-related health issues and chronic fatigue. What is exciting to me is that you have found a unique way to address these illnesses. It’s awesome that you’ve figured out how to do something no one else can.”

What are the Anxiety Conditions?
- Anxious apprehension (worry, rumination)
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (free floating anxiety)
- Intense anxiety and panic attacks
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Phobias of all kinds including agoraphobia and social phobia
- Eating disorders
Anxiety and Brain Function
There is an enormous amount of scientific evidence to show that various regions of the brain are either overactive or dysfunctional when anxiety symptoms are present. One of the most salient issues pertaining to this kind of scientific research is that different types of anxiety symptoms correspond with different areas of brain dysfunction. The forebrain appears to be the area most affected in most anxiety disorders. This is the largest portion of the brain and includes the cerebral hemispheres, the limbic system, the thalamus and hypothalamus, amygdala and the corpus callosum.
Each of the brain hemispheres is divided into four lobes: frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal. Collectively, the forebrain functions to control cognitive, sensory and motor function, regulate temperature, reproductive functions, eating, sleeping and the display of emotions. When it becomes dysfunctional, the range of symptoms can be enormous. Recent studies using electroencephalographic (EEG) methods have found that patients diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder had heightened activity in the left brain regions, whereas patients with panic disorder, panic symptoms or those subjected to high stress situations exhibited enhanced activity in the right hemisphere.
While it can be of value to acknowledge and understand the role that brain structures and neuroplacitity play in anxiety conditions, the most important element as a sufferer is to know what you can do, what action you can take to stop your symptoms for good.
“I have been in and out of therapy since I was fifteen years old but was always a little uncomfortable with the idea. I never felt a connection to any of my therapists until I met Kyle. He is not only an amazing listener but has provided me with the knowledge and tools I need to get through the challenges I face each day. I can honestly say that I consider Kyle as more than a life coach, as a friend.”
~ Maddie, USA
“Kyle’s program has taught me a great deal about the vibrational and energetic aspects of me and my life. I now feel more connected and aligned with my soul than ever before.
I discovered that I energetically closed myself off in some situations that I didn’t want, situations that were safe and unpleasant for me. I had blocked them and didn’t know how to get past the discomfort that I felt. Kyle helped me remove the blocks that were preventing the real me from flowing.
Before Kyle’s program I was just conscious of the fact that something wasn’t OK without knowing what. His work enabled me to reclaim control over myself and my direction in life.”
~ Gerda, The Netherlands
“Thanks for everything, I couldn’t have done it alone. I have really improved over the last few months — you have given me lots of knowledge that has helped me enormously, and I have a much better understanding of myself. I am learning to enjoy life now and I have the tools to overcome whatever challenges lie ahead.”
~ Mark, Ireland
“Kyle, I wanted to take time to write a short note of appreciation for the help, support and guidance you have given me. To put it simply, you have transformed my life. I can honestly say that the inner change in me has been astonishing and I will never be able to truly express my gratitude for this. For so long I felt lost but you have helped me reconnect with who I really am, and this has resulted in such positive changes in all parts of my life.
Your guidance has opened my perceptions, intuition and awareness and these are getting stronger every day. This has resulted in my relationships with family and friends changing for the better, and now I have the strength and confidence to take steps to make my future more fulfilling – not just for me, but for everyone around me.
Thank you for showing me how much better things can be after years of living life in the darkness of depression and losing who I was.”
~ Alison, UK
“The knowledge and strategies I have been given by Kyle have changed the direction of my life and health for the better. This work has been the most effective I have come across in dealing with my health problems. I would recommend Kyle’s work to anyone suffering anxiety, as well as those interested in improving their general health and developing their self-awareness.”
