Hi, my name is Aaron O’Neill and I am your local LAR Coach.
As a child in Ireland, around the age of 6 or 7, I can distinctly remember counting numbers as I crossed the green field in front of our house to get home from school. My legs would become numb otherwise, fear would grip me. I would count up from 1 to 30 and back down again to see how long it would take. I didn't realise it at the time but anxiety had me in it's grips from such an early age.
As I got older, I came up with certain first aid techniques that would help anxiety in the short term, but that was it, short term, they wouldn't last very long. When I met the woman I was going to marry, she recognised that my behaviour and thought patterns were quite erratic, I would be very compulsive, and this struggle to be free of anxiety was getting me down. We then signed up to go on the television to have our wedding broadcast as part of Don't Tell the Bride, as we couldn't afford a wedding of our own. The pressure of this lead to my first major panic attack, and many more to come in the coming weeks and months. It had sparked a chain of which I was sure would never break.
I ended up at the stage where I was visiting the doctor almost every day, convinced I was dying of something or other. I was even sent for brain scans, ear checks, and so far as being tested for AIDS, because they could find no physical fault. One day I stumbled across the Linden Method. After reading the basis of it, and the testimonies, I bought the package. I must admit I was sceptical at first, but I opened my mind and started it.
The difference was immediate. I started to become the real me. My tinnitus was gone within 3 or 4 days, my panic disappeared forever, erratic thoughts just melted away, pressure in the head just eased and my shoulders finally dropped. It just made sense. Why had I suffered for so many years? Why hadn't I found this sooner? I'd found a new life, I wasn't afraid to leave the house anymore, my life had completely changed.
I began to tell everyone about it.There is a way out. I had studied so many ways of ridding anxiety, and this was the only one that worked. I wanted more than to just tell people about it. I had calls with both Charles and Beth Linden, and was convinced that becoming a Linden Anxiety Recovery Coach was what I needed to do. I am proud to be part of the team, and I look forward to helping the people of Ireland to rid themselves of anxiety.
