The evolution of LAR Therapy – Over two decades of research & practice

LAR Therapy is the only accredited, dedicated anxiety disorder recovery therapy

What does this mean?

No other therapeutic process has ever been developed specifically to address anxiety disorders; no other therapy produces total recovery; no other therapy focuses on recovery; no other therapy provides unlimited, constant access to care; no other therapy provides remote learning, workshop, residential and online portal access to care and support; LAR therapy is administered by accredited, professional anxiety recovery practitioners.

LAR Therapy’s evolution

LAR evolved from the core belief that complete removal of anxiety disorders and both the predisposition to suffering and elimination of the chance of recurrence of the conditions is, not only, possible, but inevitable – if the mind and body receive the correct data required to deactivate it.

How do we know this?

Because despite the widespread belief and dissemination of the message that anxiety related conditions require lifelong management, coping skills or medication, people can and do recover fully.

If one human can recover, so can the rest.

Based only on the fact that practitioners do not know how to create recovery or, alternatively, know how to do so but choose not to, LAR therapy developed based on the psychological and physiological process that leads to full and permanent elimination of high anxiety conditions. With the absence of an active disorder, the predisposition to suffering can then be addressed and redressed directly and effectively.

Historic treatment methods

Historically, anxiety disorders have been dealt with using medication, coping strategies and management techniques with a focus on cognitive style therapies; but the psychophysiology of anxiety disorders has been somewhat ignored during their development – this was partly due to the provision of inaccurate data and partly due to a distinct lack of understanding about the true nature of anxiety disorders. There is also a misconception of the predisposition that leads to the development and the perpetuation of anxiety through an individual’s autonomic responses and vastly counter-productive treatment methods.

What is certain though is that, in the majority of cases, people are confused about the relationship between anxiety and the emotion of fear and also between anxiety and clinical depression, often being told that they suffer from both in comorbidity. Of course the science of that statement couldn’t be more flawed and yet many patients exist in the belief that they experience both and that antidepressants, for example, have been prescribed to correct chemical imbalances that cause anxiety disorders; quite where this science is sourced is unclear but it flies in the face of neurological, psychophysiological and psych-chemical fact. Further complications arise when conditions such as OCD are moved away from the anxiety category of conditions into the depression category or even, in some cases and usually, by individual practitioners, into psychosis.

Not an issue of ‘mental health’

Anxiety disorders are not a mental health issue; they are conditions associated with the fear response mechanism, commonly referred to as ‘flight or fight’. Their formation is not through direct malfunction of the fear response mechanism, nor through the effect of altered chemical equilibrium, but through the interaction of a genetically inherited psychological ability operating in a, seemingly, totally unassociated part of the human mind. This happens only amongst those predisposed to suffering from these conditions.

It is so common for Pure O sufferers to be labelled as suffering from depression or psychosis, BPD or other mental illness because the practitioners haven’t understood high anxiety conditions and the neurology and psychological manifestations associated with the conditions. There are many examples of jumbled science and misinterpretations in practice and sufferers know all too well what those are and the impact they have on them.

LAR changes that.

So how did this therapy develop?

We discovered the cause of high anxiety conditions in 1997 and having identified the true source in the genetic predisposition to suffering, we created a structure that both removed anxiety conditions systemically, but also corrected the interactions in the subconscious mind that predisposes people to suffering.

LAR therapy developed from 20 years experience working with clinical psychologists, occupational psychologists, counselling psychotherapists and a variety of educational specialists, refining the therapy into a structure now delivered by LAR accredited practitioners in home-learning/online, workshop, app and residential recovery program formats.

LAR therapy accreditation is provided by the NCFE at level 4 and accredited practitioners practice under license in individual, joint, educational and corporate practice environments.

LAR Therapy conforms to NICE Guidance CG113 for use in clinical practice and healthcare settings.

Does it work?

It can’t fail.

LAR’s underpinning science is time and people tested, but, more importantly, it conforms to accepted science, simple human biological knowledge and is proven to be effective in 100% of cases.

Its science is as simple as ‘curing hunger by eating’ and the effect can be experienced within hours but, ultimately, curative outcomes are solely dependent on one factor; compliance.

Doing it creates unquestionable results and by doing it, recovery is inevitable.

No other therapeutic device demonstrates a 100% success rate and carries with it thousands of reviews and testimonials from clients, doctors, psychologists, counsellors and celebrities.

Will medication interfere with recovery?

No, not at all. Regardless of what medication you currently take, LAR therapy will remove the anxiety, allowing you to withdraw the medication under your doctor’s supervision.

How does LAR work and why is it different?

LAR is a proven structured education programme – LAR works very differently to most therapies

  • It educates the brain to replace inappropriate emotional responses with appropriate responses and create neurology that protects the sufferer from recurrence of their disorder
  • It creates physical, chemical and mental equilibrium and wellbeing
  • It relieves hyper-anxiety – enhancing personal life choices and opportunities
  • It encourages self-management of anxiety recovery without over reliance on professional help and support
  • It provides hope and motivation for suffers who have not found more mainstream therapies effective
  • It engages high anxiety sufferers through an authentic ex -sufferer narrative
  • Underpinned by behavioural psychology and supported by support staff who are registered members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
  • Works for people who have used/are using traditional psychological therapy interventions, medication and other therapies and have not found them effective
  • Support staff are all ex-anxiety disorder sufferers
  • Offers an improved alternative choice to core NHS/private therapies
