    Hi Geert,

    I started your program this morning and I have to say I’m amazed by what I’m hearing. I’ve tried many things before and I was afraid this would just be one of those you know.

    But this is different. I only listened to the first session but with that one alone I already feel calm and relaxed.

    I love your accent and your voice as well!

    Keep it up, you are a great person!


  2. Shannon says:

    Hello Geert!
    I really liked the video and I am looking forward to hear more from You.

  3. Dustin says:


    I like the examples you give regarding Panic Attacks and how to deal with them so they no longer are able to expose themselves to you. I would very much like to see or read about your other solutions and also learn about the tools you talk about.

    Thanks for your hard work and videos

  4. Karen says:

    Hi I really liked your spider video. That makes a lot of sense. I never have liked spiders. I’m going to try that next time and I’ve subscribed to your trial offer as well. Thanks! Karen

  5. Rianna says:

    Several weeks ago I discovered your on-line help for panic and have watched your videos, which are quite thought provoking.

    My panic attacks come only when I am driving on the freeway (as I approach the onramp I go into a full panic…’the point of no return’ feeling I guess). I hate driving fast and hate passing trucks, I hate having cars zooming all around me.

    For 15 years I was a great freeway driver with no problems at all. Then I had my first panic attack about 10 years ago and things have gotten progressively worse where I now can’t get on the freeway at all.

    I REALLY want to be able to drive the freeway again (and stop relying on others)…can you help?

  6. Kalie Ann says:

    Thank you from the bottom of my desperate heart! I’m excited for the future videos, and the outcome!



  8. Jessie says:

    I have your program for two weeks now and I’m already starting to feel the difference! I used the tsunami method in the supermarket yesterday (it was really crowded) and it worked great!

    I’m so thankful that I found this website!

  9. Charlotte says:

    I have had panic disorder, general anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder for over 2 decades. I have tried so many different things to overcome it but I have reached a point in my recovery where I am stuck. Your videos and other information have been most helpful because of your ability to relate to those of us who are suffering. You truly have an understanding of what it feels like to be overreactive with anxiety and just watching and listening to you feels like you’re a close friend, encouraging us on. Thanks so very much for all that you’ve done for us.

  10. les says:

    Hi geert..really enjoy your videos find them very helpful thanks les.

  11. Lori says:

    Hi Geert,
    Thanks for your help so far. What you say makes a lot of sense. Look forward to more videos.

  12. Sam says:

    I think changing your point of view, your way of looking at anxiety is very powerful. I like both the wave and Bob the spider. I find not being afraid of anxiety is a discipline that needs to be learned. I am really getting that i am afraid of my anxiety and how I lose control over my mind when it visits. Yes, your videos are very helpful and i would be grateful to receive more of your strategies for conquering this fear. Also, I want to acknowledge you for being a stand for us to eliminate fear from our lives.

  13. Darren says:

    Just a very quick question!

    I’ve been playing with the tiger a lot recently, which is really good. I’ve been to the cinema, been out for meals and got the train a few times which were all things that I feared in the past.

    One thing though. When I get the train I like to listen to your course on my ipod as it helps to distract my attention and keep me focused. Thinking about it though I don’t think i’d like to get the train without my ipod. Do you think it is OK to use this as a helpful tool or should I really be attempting this all on my own without the ipod?

    Your advice would be much appreciated!

  14. Mary says:

    I am really enjoying your email and videos, especially “Bob the Spider” looking forward to more videos. Slan

  15. Casee says:

    I could cry because of what you have taught me in just a couple of emails and videos from you. I always knew I was uncomfortable around people ,but I never understood why until I came across your first video and I was stuck…I couldn’t move while listening to your video out of amazement,

    I am amazed at how I am relaxed and at ease with myself and people. Friends and family that I have isolated myself from because of my social anxiety, I am now building relationships with them again after such a long time. I’ve been on two interviews and got BOTH jobs. I would recommend this video to anyone experiencing any sort of anxiety.

    It REALLY does work.

    Thank you SOOOOOO much.

  16. John says:

    Dearest Geert! Your video about Bob the spider couldn’t have come at a better time for me. As of this date I’m trying to cope with the suicide of a close ex-girlfriend and my own anxieties. Just hearing about choices in response to situations helped today (and hopefully in the days to come) Bless you angel. John

  17. Inessa says:

    Dear Geert. You are great! You know the subject so good it unbelievable.
    I have an anxiety attacks all my life. Some times its better, somethimes accute.
    I am very glad that I came across your site. After listening to you I feel better. And the most important that I want to get better for real. You carry a very good positive energy. Thank you for doing what you doing.

  18. Mike Murron says:

    Dear Geert. I want to compliment you on everything you do. I received your program and have been using the for two weeks. The results I’ve seen in those past weeks surpass anything!

    You’re the best. Thank you for allowing me to have FUN again!


  19. Dan says:

    Hi Geert, thanks for the e mails and videos, everything u say makes perfect sense, i would love to learn and hear more from u.

    1. Andrea says:

      Thank you so much! I have read your book several times. Each time I read it I discover more and more things I missed the first time. I have read many books on anxiety but this one is describes exactly what a person with anxiety is going through. The best part is that it also tells you how to stop it! Thanks again!

  20. Robert says:

    I’m really enjoying your videos Geert Keep up the
    good work.

  21. Goudy says:

    hello there,

    just wanted to give thanks for the e-mails and videos which I have found very helpful. I told a friend of mine who also happens to have panic attacks to check out your site. Take care.

  22. Amber says:

    Your videos make me smile, laugh, and cry. Who knew what a joy it can be learning about our anxiety, and exploring how to get better. Thank you so much.

  23. Sue says:

    I only hope the journey you’re taking me on is the road to success and i CAN get better. You have a very strange way of calming me down when i watch you, thank you.

  24. Rekahyah says:

    I liked the video and I look foward to seeing more and receiving more e-mails. I want to ger better and I have faith that you can help me . Hope to hear from you soon. Thank You!

  25. Susan says:


    Thanks a million for the invaluable service you are willinmg to provide to strangers who happen to share a common problem. Just knowing someone out there understands helps a great deal. And it’s obvious you do.

  28. michael says:

    HI Geert
    I love the idea of the wave and trying to fight it look forward to getting more

  29. Alex says:

    Thank you, you really know how to explain things that are so useful to living my everyday life! Thank you again.

  30. Joyce says:

    Hi Geert

    I really enjoy your videos and your comments. They really do help me relax. Thank for being here for all of us panic attackers.

  31. Robin Turner says:

    Hi Geert,
    I want to thank you for all of your time and effort. I love your examples they truely put things into perspective in a that is understandable. I just started your course and I am already 75% better than before. I love your relaxation session and your accent, it is so calming. Thank you for all of your help, it is worth more than money to live panic free. What I like the most about you is that you were once in my shoes and you never make me feel like I am some sycho. Thanks again!

  32. Kattia says:

    Dear Geert

    Thank you very much for your video, its very helpful for me, I have many days without panic attack I’m trying to deal and surf into my wave, even I try to be friend with my Bob!!!

    From El Salvador, Central America

  33. Dave says:

    Geert, thank you. Keep going! You r doing an amazing work!

  34. John Schleer says:

    Very nice, seeing that i’m an old beach bum the wave really hits home as a reaction that we have to these type situations.
    I don’t mind spiders so Bob is ok with me.
    You deliver a special message and I thank you for that.


  35. Debbie Freeman says:

    Hi Geert.
    I have watched several of your videos, and they are all excellent.
    Very clearly spoken and they all make sense.
    It’s great to listen to you and feel that someone really understands. Bob,the spider can be a friend!

  36. Leslie Marie says:

    Thank you for your support. I had a “break Down” and now in alittle trouble. My anxiety is so real, and won’t go away, even with help, (meds,which got me in trouble by accident)and my husband is tired of them and don’t understand and left me 5 days ago. Thank you for your info…

  37. Carolyn says:

    I like your approach very much. I am trying to learn as much as I can about panic attacks as my daughter in law has them. She is extremely guarded and ashamed of them…only recently told me about them. So I want to learn what I can to help her.

  38. Marthica says:

    Hi Geert,
    Thank you so much for sharing your time and knowledge with us. I started reading your info a few days ago, and already find it very useful. Thanks again

  39. Melanie says:


    I think its really awsome what you are doing! I don’t think there is enough emphasis out there on how life changing and horrifying panic attacks are on the people who live with them on a daily basis. What I mean is that there aren’t alot of outlets media wise that talk about this problem and its a huge one that so many people deal with. And as far as heredity goes I’ve had anxiety symptoms since childhood, my parents might have some but not as severe and now my 6 yr old daughter have definatly shown signs of it. But it makes sence that your children mimic what they see and I try to keep my anxieties to myself around her and try to help her with hers in a positive way.


  40. maria says:

    I just love the story about Bob the Spider. You have been a great help! I am so grateful to you. Thank you so much…

  41. joel says:

    Thanks for the thought of emailing to me your video. You really have a way of bring the true reality of life up to the surface of all the problems we as human-beings encounter…May you continue on with your search of helping those to help themselves…Sincerely, joel…

  42. Meg says:

    Hi Geert!
    I liked this video and agree with the other posters you really seem to “get it”. After seeing your website a couple of weeks ago and listening to some videos, I decided to order and so excited to get started! Just now as I was watching the spider video, my boyfriend asked “what” I was watching and I told him about the program. He is glad for me as well! Thanks again!

  43. Pat... Ireland says:

    Ho Gert,

    Loved Bob the spider video…makes so much sense. Have got your sessions and on session 2 plus the relaxation CD..very powerful and an easy way to understand anxiety. Looked for years for different methods to control anxiety and panic… I feel I have found the solution..thanks.


  44. Debbie says:

    I am recently new to the videos. I watched the spider video and thought it made alot of sense. I want to thank you for taking the time to help others, who have this disorder. I am so happy that I finally found someone who can relate to my problems. I am going to order the sessions, and I am looking forward to listening to them. Thank you so very much!!!

  45. Cayman Islands says:

    Fantastic material. It has helped me tremendously!Keep on doing what you do as you are a blessing to many who suffer from anxiety.

  46. Gabrielle(gabby) says:

    All I can think of is Charlottes Web-and Charlotte was the sweetest spider in the world. This was a children’s book that I read as a child and taught as a teacher. Wonderful video-thanks for it! 🙂

  47. Maryann says:

    I just flew in an airplane after avoiding it for 10 years. I did exactly what you talked about when a spider or the wave came. I just talked through it and kept on checking to see if the ground was there. For some reason that helped me throughout the flight. I can’t say that I am axious free yet but it is much better than I thought it would be. Thanks for the tip!!!

  48. john roles says:

    Thanks much…
    One other option for “Bob” is to remove him safely from
    the kitchen…But that’s trickier!..Thoughts?
    I guess that’s more like close exposure.. 🙂

  49. Katherine says:

    I love ilovepanickattacks!

  50. Sue says:

    Loved it, thanks! 🙂

  51. maria says:

    please send your videos more frequently! i read my mail every day hoping to find one!

    its helping me a lot! i fighting with the idea of taking medication… and your advices are helping me a looot!

  52. Benjamin says:

    Thanks Geert.The help you provide for people with anxiety is invaluable.We enjoy all your videos.

  53. Kristi says:

    I am so glad that I have found your website online. Your videos have helped me so much and have really taught me a different way to look at things. I am a mother of 4, and I didn’t want anxiety to hold me back from experiencing life with my children. Thank you so much for your support and uplifting testimony.=]

  54. Mike says:

    While I do agree and believe in every thing I’ve seen in your videos there are still many of us who need help that may not be able to even
    try your program as we do not have the resources to take advantage of your no risk trial because we don’t have a credit card or bank account, are unemployed or disabled in someway (me) you vids are very comforting and leave us wanting to know more i.e. magic bullet?
    you are an inspiration and a tease at the same time Good for you for making lemonade from the lemons life has given you. Iwish you continued sucess on your mission. God bless,


  55. Lidia says:

    Thank you very much for your videos. God bless you.

  56. Holley says:


    I like your videos and what I read even makes sense. I have suffered with pnic attacks to the point along with my illness that I missed so much of my Daughters programs, and functions from school and college. I just don’t have the funds or the ability to get your program. But God Bless you and good luck with your successful mission to help people. Please keep your videos coming and I will be able to see if some of it can help me. Holley

  57. ronald says:

    i found bob the spider good makes alot of sence gives me a different view to look at and the wave also. thankyou God bless you.


  58. Ruth says:

    Thanks for sharing your experiances and knowledge. Already I see a change in the way I react to the world around me. Looking forward to the next email.

  59. julie elsenpeter says:

    thank you geert you are such a blessing to me and my family , i now know that i did learn by example as my dad was an extremely anxious person mostly in social situations i feel he sensed early in our lives to push us to join activities that would prevent us from this happening to us. as an adult i find much comfort in knowing i am not alone and i can get over this i share the video with my hubby and kids as well and i think it will help us all to have a more fun and fullfilling life

  60. Randy says:

    All I can say is for the first time in my life, I found someone
    who shares the same fears that i have lived with for over 40
    years. I can only say that you were there many years ago, but
    I now see it is not to late to really enjoy life for the first time.

    Thank you

    PS I think you might have saved the rest of my life.

  61. Tania says:

    I love your tidal wave analogy!!! That is sooo true. It is like the same feeling. You either have to let it come or panic. I am making the effort to accept the oncoming water.

  62. Ray says:

    Hi Geert, I am a Counsellor in London and I always a couple of people to see who are undergoing some form Panic – I teach preety much the same way as you, however, recently I have been recommending your site as back-up to my teaching – I’m quite sure you have more clients as a result of this – I’m hoping you are ok with this situation, if not please advise – Take Care Ray

  63. Tom says:

    Hi Geert,
    This is the first video I’ve seen, my counselor recommended this site and I’m glad she did. I found your video very reassuring and helpful, I look forward to seeing more. Thank You!

  64. C.Matthews says:

    Wow, so good to know I’m not the only one and that there are tools to get through this…thank you, you’ve made a difference!

  65. Sue says:

    Great video and you are certainly NOT stupid. I have taught for 16 years and this is the way I help students learn by putting in a context that they can relate to.

    Also, James Dobson who is an Christian Psychologist, writes books, TV, radio, etc. gave an example of men in Viet Nam at night who thought they were being attacked and they were not. In the morning, they found the only destruction was from their guns, there were no Viet Cong around and hadn’t been. He stated that this what the mind can do when you are under stress and you are doing the same great healing in a very understandable way.

    Great job, keep up the good work!

  66. Claudia says:

    I know that this is cliche, but I truely feel that you are speaking directly to me. So much so that my husband will walk in on me watching your videos and I will be nodding, commenting, or even crying, and he knows exactly what I am doing. I cant wait to get the next email and I am seriously concidering making my investment with your program and not wasting anymore $$ with therapy(it doesn’t work, as you know).

  67. Maria says:

    Hi Geert!
    Thank you so much for all your videos online.It’s really helping me to understand my anxiety.I get anxiety attack everyday for no reason at all! I am taking medicine for it but it does not work.So watching your video is helping me a lot than my medicine.

  68. Karima Hastings says:

    I am really enjoying your emails and videos! How refreshing and encouraging!
    Thank you,

  69. Marla says:

    I love these videos you’re emailing me…..I also like the responses. The one gal who talks about freeway driving being the only place she gets panic attacks is exactly how I am! Cars and trucks all around me and semi’s are really bad. I used to drive all over the place, but in 2006 I got sick while driving from heat exhaustion and dehydration. I got dizzy and really sick and couldn’t get off the freeway for a whiile. Ever since that time the minute I try to drive outside of town I get anxious. And yes I want to be free of this…I hope to be able to try your course. Thank you..

  70. Andrew says:

    Hi Geert,
    Very impressed I must say. I’m on the first batch of cd’s and its going really well. Ive been in the anxiety state on and off since 1989 and had various experiences which i have managed to overcome but 1 thing which remained with me is Claustrphobia. I have already been on a train, in a lift (my worse fear) and Friday i’m flying to Denmark .
    If you listen to ” I FOUND YOU by AXWELL . Geert is the streek of light your looking for..
    Best Wishes.

  71. AFZA says:

    I really started to use these strategies to avoid my panic attacks because its very miserable to live whole life with horrible attacks.

    God bless u

  72. joan says:

    hello Geert,
    I just watched your Bob the Spider video and it is so true as you described it. This summer I have had spiders in my kitchen and have reacted as you said. I don’t like them especially when they run out unexpectedly. I freeze.
    maybe I overract but I have to catch them or I am always watching until I get them.
    I am going to try your lesson. Thanks so much.

    All the Best

  73. Jessica says:

    I am just beginning week two of your course, I got the trial version and I know I will be getting the full version! I cannot believe the changes that are already happening 1 week into this. You have such a way of explaining things, I can’t believe I never understood before. My eyes are now open, I feel like I’ve been in darkness for the past 7 years! My biggest fear was driving anxiety, it started when I was driving on an interstate with my husband and eating french fries, and I choked on a french fry and had to pull over and fainted. That was my external factor, as you described, that started a spiral of fears. I never realized that before! After that incident I was so afraid of driving, and I couldn’t understand why as I loved to drive before. I constantly beat myself up over it, and talked down to myself. I am loving week 2! I never realized how awful I was to myself until now. Thank you so much Geert! You are my saving grace. I will be forever grateful to you and I am totally sticking to this course and going to beat this! (by the way, I love the tsunami method, been putting myself out there every day since I started and applying it, and I have driven so many places already that I avoided before!) Thank you so much!!!!


  74. Sam says:

    Hi Geert!!
    I found your page a few weeks ago and the techniques are already working. Like you described in the video, I too plan escape routes and try to plan everything. After applying the techniques you’ve given, I am already starting to accept things instead of controlling it. Thankyou for your help!!

  75. Derek says:

    Love this attitude….i am a police officer and firefighter from Ohio and started having panic attacks when my grandfather passed away and several traumatic events while working…its with the help of people like you that i am dusting myself off and getting back on the rig after i had to take a leave of absence…now im trying my hardest to go back to saving lives instead of being afraid to leave the house….thanks so much

  76. Laura says:

    You are such an awesome person! ThankYou SOOOO Much for knowledge,and and caring enough to help others! If we could All DO THAT,(People Helping People)IT WOULD BE A MUCH HAPPIER WORLD 🙂

  77. Kelly Mcewan Dobson says:

    Thank you for your emails and video, I am planning on buying your DVDs in the future. Everything you have said makes so much sense so nowI have to put it into practise, :-s lol wish me luck

  78. Leo says:

    Another great video……All very helpful on the road to no anxiety.

    Thanx .

  79. Ali Mith> says:

    Hi Geert
    I have found you emails very helpful and look foward to receiving your emails.

  80. Ali Smith says:

    Hey Geert
    thrilled to bits with the emails that i have got, they really help as do all your comments I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.The future looks bright!!!!!!

  81. julie winterton says:

    hi geert
    i really enjoy watching your videos they are an inspiration to me .very helpful and i hope that seeing more of your wise words and techniques will help me overcome my panic attacks for good . but for now they are working well thank you

  82. Warren says:

    Thanks so much for this video! I get panic attacks taking the train to work. As soon as I go through the tunnel, it hits me like a ton of bricks, heart racing, pure terror. Ususally, I calm down after a couple of minutes because I know it is just temporary. It is the thought of having no way out and all the people around me that sends me into a panic.

  83. emre says:

    geert, you are really sincere.when İ watch your videos, İ’m saying to myself, “hey this guy is speaking from his heart.and its real.”.thank you that you didnt stop after your healing and thank you for you decide to share this with others.its very kind.

  84. Yvette says:

    Wow this was amazing! Thank you so much for that Geert! I love the ” I will deal with it when it happens” concept. As someone who lives with panic attacks I never to thought of looking at it that way! Thank you again!
