Stop Panic Attacks, Overcome Fear and Master Your Emotions
Forget Brown Paper Bags, Chamomile Tea and Visualizing Your Happy Place
What if you could:
Leave the house without feeling terrified of having a panic attack?
Feel calm and confident meeting new people?
Fly 16 hours across the world to visit your dream destination with your partner?
Start the day calm and relaxed without a feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach?
Enjoy concerts, crowded restaurants and date nights without obsessively checking for the nearest exit?
Get in your car and drive wherever you want without worrying about fainting and causing an accident?
Trust yourself and feel excited about life again?
Over the past ten years, hundreds of people in my clinical practice have used my approach to end panic and chronic anxiety, build unshakeable social confidence, master their emotions and find a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in life.
As a former sufferer, I understand. You’ve tried everything: medication, meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, exercise, yoga, natural supplements, rescue drops, chamomile tea, hemp oil, counting backwards from 100, distraction, hypnotherapy, cold showers and visualizing your happy place.
Some of these provide symptom relief, but you're constantly treading water.
You’ve also tried avoiding your panic, but it pursues you. You’ve fought it with sheer, unbridled will power - a testament to your determination and resolve. But the harder you fight, the stronger it becomes.
In an effort to find the root cause of your anxiety, you may have tried talking about your childhood with an empathic counsellor. Unfortunately, this often leaves you confused and without a clear action plan.
You’ve exhausted self-help advice and are tired of endless tips and hacks from internet articles.
Prescription medication numbs your symptoms, along with your capacity to feel joy and excitement.
You’re exhausted from trying to manage your anxiety, day in and day out, without fully living.
You need a long-term solution.
Working with anxious clients over the last ten years, I noticed something fascinating: the most effective solution was also highly paradoxical. It required people to do the opposite of what they tended to do, namely, try their hardest to calm themselves down. Trying to stay calm seemed to do two things:
1.Bind them into an incessant cycle of 'anxiety management.'
2. Perpetuate their fear in the long run.
The best approach, on the other hand, was counterintuitive: it required people, in their most anxious moments, to willingly bring on their anxiety. This empowered them. In time, it reconditioned their nervous system: they began to associate feelings of excitement to their anxiety and no longer feared the prospect of having a panic attack.
Once the fear of having a panic attack disappeared, their panic attacks disappeared as well.
A stunning insight emerged: Panic attacks are not the problem, but rather, our fear of them, which takes the form of avoidance, resistance and judgement. This is true with all uncomfortable emotions: our reaction to them determines their frequency and intensity. We can't control when we feel panic, fear or emotional discomfort, only our response to these experiences. This is the key to emotional mastery.
Stunned by the power of this approach, I was compelled to share it with everybody.
And so I integrated the best existing tools into a simple, 4 step-framework…
…a cheat sheet for ending panic attacks for good, building confidence and maintaining equanimity in any situation...
THE BOLD APPROACH
You wake up in the morning without that feeling of dread in the pit of your stomach. You feel poised for the day ahead. You leave the house without the terror of having a panic attack, passing out and causing an accident. At work, you’re calm and confident. In the afternoon, you book a 16 hour flight for your dream holiday with your partner without the anticipatory dread of flying. That night you enjoy a concert with your friends without obsessively checking for the nearest exit. You come home and settle into a restful sleep. Your stomach isn't twisted into nervous knots and your mind doesn't race at the thought of waking up in the morning. You look forward to tomorrow.
The BOLD Approach gives you everything you need to make this a reality.
Most importantly, it shatters the myth of ‘anxiety management.’ Its promise is more ambitious: to help you end panic and intense anxiety for good. The idea that you need to settle for living with intense anxiety is a popular but false narrative.

Here’s what people have said about my book, BOLD.
Please note: this course isn't for everyone.
BOLD is not for you if:
You’re a passive consumer and not a doer.
We make progress by taking action, not contemplating our navels! The most powerful tools on earth are useless unless you pick them up and use them.
You're looking for a Silver Bullet for your anxiety.
Creating meaningful, lasting change takes time and effort. If you don't have an hour a week for the next month to commit to overcoming your anxiety, this course isn't for you.
BOLD is for you if:
You’re not content to merely consume and intellectualize but to do something different. This approach is for people who have the courage to act and who are no longer content being a spectator in their own life.
You're prepared to set aside a few minutes a day to invest in your recovery.
You're tired of managing your anxiety day to day and are looking for a bolder, long-term solution.
You have a vision for what your life looks like free from extreme anxiety and understand that setbacks and obstacles are a natural part of any journey. Indeed, you welcome them as an opportunity to grow.
