Is it possible to Get Rid of Anxiety Forever?**

—Begin your journey to being anxiety-free

Access a simple, science-based strategy for managing anxiety and overwhelm

**Anxiety is a normal reaction to life threatening danger. Chronic anxiety is a problem with the autonomic nervous system and can be treated.

Let me know if this sounds familiar . . .

Your mind won't shut off

You've got 3 days to get something done for work and—no matter how hard you tryyou can't get your mind to focus. 

You keep jumping from one catastrophic thought - "I'm screwed if I don't get this done"  to another. 

You feel pressured inside

You can't settle down. You want to jump outside your skin. Your muscles are tight. You're wound up.

Your mind is mush

It's only Monday but already you feel tired and overwhelmed. You're tapped out.

And as a result . . .

doubting yourself and feeling a lack of confidence type smiley

You're second guessing yourself

Rehashing the same thing over and over again. Sometimes reliving the same scene that you felt didn't go so well.

You can't prioritize

You know you're wasting time going over things that —in the scheme of things—aren't that important.

What is important is focusing on the problem or task at hand. But your mind stubbornly won't go there.

You're stuck in decision paralysis

Feeling overwhelmed and shut down

Feeling pressured to get it done so you rush around - working faster - until you're so burnt out you start crashing.


If you’re reading this right now, you’ve probably already tried
a few different things to stop anxiety and overthinking.

# 1

Over-analyzing every which way. You end up finding other more important things to worry about. You go from one catastrophe scenario to the next. (And now, your stomach is tied in knots.)

# 2

Distracting yourself and pushing thoughts away. You watched a Youtube video, went for a walk, organized your desk. After a few minutes you're back where you started. (Now you shoulders are up to your ears.)

# 3

Talking yourself out of it. Trying to be positive: "I'm a good person", "I deserve to be happy" "I am not my thoughts". You don't believe it. (Now you're feeling a heavy weight on your chest.). Talking down to yourself: "I'm making a mountain out of a molehill." "I'm just no good at this."

psychologist dr. Susan Lacombe

Have you noticed that you're fighting thoughts with MORE THOUGHTS?

Basically dealing with overthinking with MORE OVERTHINKING?


"Thinking through" and being in your head makes you feel AS IF you're doing something—even though the results are the same:  temporary relief.

Because no often how many times you do it, you're NOT really changing your brain.

Maybe it's time to try something new?

How about a science-based strategy to finally kick anxiety for good?


A strategy that works within minutes

The ReCharge Reset Mini-Course is organized to get you going in the right direction right from the get go. Not only does it contain interactive exercises that work quickly to change the brain, information is easily accessible in bite-sized chunks with progress bar tools and other educational incentives for tracking completion.

Avoid tedious thinking strategies that give a false sense of moving forward and instead use the tools that deliver quick results.


A strategy that's based on how the brain really works

Other strategies focus on "thinking differently" using an area of the brain far removed from the true source of the problem. The ReCharge Reset teaches you techniques that target brain areas where the root problem actually arises from.


A strategy that guarantees lasting change

Why waste time learning merely to "cope" with an overactive brain. Use a strategy that future proofs all your efforts with neural pathways that rewire the brain for top-of-the-line performance. That's because when you strengthen your brain "muscles" you ultimately have all the control over your thoughts that you need.

Introducing the ReCharge Reset

Utilize the Power of Neuroscience

The ReCharge Reset mini-course contains all the information you'll need  to shift your mindset and get back on track. It contains 6 modules with each topic in bite sized chunks including progress bars, your own online workbook and the Tracker Tool.**

**The Tracker Tool helps you to identify and record the changes you're experiencing.

     . . . can feel the anxiety calming!     

"I have just been doing what you said in your video. Feel anxious… so I calm my body reaction, and literally absolutely can feel the anxiety calming… dissipating. Magic Extraordinary and very WONDERFUL! Needless to say, enormous thanks to you for this and your website in general."

I always thought of myself as an high achiever. So in my mid-30's, with two clinical depressions and an eating disorder behind me, I had to face the fact that my mind was not functioning well. I felt an inner burning to find a direction but my mind was too easily mixed up to focus for long.

I had always been a growth seeker. Nonetheless,  14 therapists later, I had almost given up hope. Serendipitously, I happened upon an approach that promised deep long-lasting change. Based on evolutionary psychology, it turns out to be the ideal for most clients.

Frustrated by mainstream medicine that pigeon-holes clients with an ever-increasing number of diagnoses with little in the way of treatment options without pharmacology, I knew that I had lucked onto something that would stop needless suffering especially among those who had given up hope.

Dr. LaCombe: Here's my promise

I promise that the results of this technique will give you more control over your mind.  Repeat the exercise and you will gain even more control. 


You'll set aside five minutes of uninterrupted time. I'll help you pick the best description of your body's physiological state. Based on what you identify as your current state, you'll follow along as I instruct you through the exercise that's been personalized to fit your anxiety in this moment. 

DISCLAIMER: If something has been burning a hole in your brain, I can't promise that it'll be banished from your mind. However, with a shift in your physiological state, it'll feel as if you have more options, more choice. 


You might find yourself dismissing the thought out of hand because you now know it was an overreaction. Or you may suddenly find the silver lining, a possibility you weren't open to considering previously.

Overall, you notice that your thoughts are less intense; and finally,  you have more control.

What's inside the Recharge reset?

Getting started has never been easier with these UNIQUE FEATURES

1. The Feel Good Generator (referred to as the "FGG")

The purpose of the ReCharge Reset is for you feel better NOW. One of the first tools you'll be introduced to is the FGG (the Feel Good Generator). Using this tool you'll quickly identify your mood/mindset and then be matched with the exact exercise(s) that will help  shift you out of your current mood and mindset.

2. The Tracker Tool

 When you're trying to establish new habits, it's motivating to see how much you've changed from where you started from. The Tracker Tool is something you'll look forward to doing each week—and it only takes a minute of your time. This feature keeps a record each time you record your current physiological state. 

Even using The Tracker Tool the one time, is an eye-opener. You'll be amazed to learn how many so called "symptoms" are merely variations of ONE problem. (Yes, you don't have a gazillion issues to deal with—working on your nervous system solves many issues—even things you thought you had to deal with for the rest of your life. NOT.

3. Your Online Workbook

As well, you also have an Online Workbook to record your roadblocks, successes and to note the events that you find challenging. This feature comes in handy as it's not always easy to keep track of events that might be triggering. You can use your workbook as a starting place from which to unpack a trigger (ie. getting at the true source of the trigger and the ideal healing scenario that helps you move beyond it).

4. Record Your Own Notes

 Finally, every page offers a place to record notes - with the click of a button. Here you can record insights and questions about your growth in relation to the topic you're reading. Many members use this feature to copy verbatim relevant passages. (Your notes are listed on one page in your Workbook.)

FIVE MODULES: What you will learn

1. Introducing the #1 tool for shifting negative states

This indispensable tool will be your default for shifting any negative state. When you're unsure which technique to use, you'll always have this tool. That way, no matter how many techniques you learn, you can always shift to this one when you're feeling overwhelmed.

2. The #1 Brain Rule for avoiding feeling stuck

Whether you're feeling numb and frozen or the opposite, anxious, unhinged and unsettled, you need a quick solution. When you understand this basic brain rule and how your emotions get amped or shut down, you'll know exactly what to do. It's a simple, step by step method for moving forward. 

3. How to release pent up energy to achieve a calm state of mind

The biggest obstacle you face in getting rid of a negative mindset and general emotional discomfort is having a nervous system that can't easily let go. In this section, you'll learn how to recognize and encourage signs of release through your body. In time, your nervous system health will improve as will your resilience in the face of change and challenges.

4. Learn to identify your key resources

Resources are your internal strengths and your 'feel good' triggers. They help ground your energy when you're upset and spiralling downwards. It's what you hold onto to keep you steady. Unfortunately, most people underestimate their internal resources. In this module you'll learn to identify them and when to use them for multiple scenarios.

5. How to achieve a brain reset

There's noting worse than repeating the same thing over and over again ad nauseam. Future-proof your efforts with techniques that build neuropathways. With sufficient neuropathways, you'll shift into a reset where you'll wake each day from a calmer overall state with lots more "room" to navigate your emotional ups & downs.

The Risk-Free Guarantee

"If you're not satisfied with your results, I'm not satisfied."

That's why I'll happily give you your money back. 

You have my 14-day Unconditional Guarantee of satisfaction. 

I’m confident that you’ll find the ReCharge Reset eye-opening, powerful and effective.

“If you read the course material, listen to the audio sessions, and put in a good-faith effort, I am not allowed to keep your money if it doesn’t work for you. You have to let me know if this happens, and I have to refund your money promptly. 

Fast Acting 'ER' for Your Brain

Note to all Canucks, Brits, Aussies, Kiwis and other friends, my pricing is in US dollars.  

Kick anxiety for good

You've already heard this before but you may not have taken in the full implications: if you calm your body, you'll calm your mind

It's not merely a new age mantra—it's neuroscience from the lab.

Truthfully, once you settle your body you might still have that same negative thought that's been burning a hole in your brain for hours, however now it feels less intense.

You have more options. You can set that issue aside and get back to the task at hand. Even better, you have "room" to consider other possibilities. Your mind isn't locked into a negative spin cycle, with knee-jerk reactions and the worst possible scenario.


1. How is this different from relaxation?

If you could relax, you would.  There's a lot of missing elements in merely relaxing and every cell in your body is resisting that kind of letting go. 

2. What is your refund policy?

If this technique is going to work for you, you're going to know it right away. Most people will find it beneficial. However, if you are feeling foggy-headed or numb, you'll notice fewer changes - even if you are experiencing changes - the effect of feeling numb is that the changes are less discernible. If however, you continue to apply this technique, you will notice a change. For some people, a therapy trained in somatics can speed things up for you..

3. Does this technique work for everyone?

As mentioned above, if you're not noticing changes right off, it may be that the freeze response is numbing your body to such an extent that you cannot feel the changes.

4. What are these techniques based on?

The techniques are based on three decades of research in the fields of neuroscience, neurobiology, developmental and somatic psychology. They have been put into clinical practice with hundreds of practitioners worldwide including over two decades by yours truly. They pull heavily from the Polyvagal Theory and the role of trauma and emotional regulation on the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS).


1. Attachment theory (Bowlby & Ainsworth),

2. Polyvagal theory and the social engagement system (Dr. Stephen Porges),

3. 'Present moment' (Daniel Stern M.D.),

4. Personality development and brain plasticity (Grigsby & Stevens),

5. Biology of emotion (Dr. Joseph LeDoux),

6. Affect and self-regulation theory (Dr. Allan Schore).


The ReCharge Reset is a new offering from myShrink. Here's what customers from our signature product, DeCoding the Brain had to say.



Hi Susan,

Thank you so much for the Program! Becoming aware of my activation has been a GAME CHANGER! I've done so many courses and workshops over the years but this was by far the MOST EFFECTIVE course I have ever done!

I'm so grateful for everything you taught me!!

Best regards,

Used it for countless other situations

Roughly 2 years ago . . . I decided to do the Brain Coaching Program [Currently called DeCoding the Brain]. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done, and I do mean that. Apart from it being so interesting it proved so effective and helped me in many areas. The wonderful thing was I could apply techniques and strategies taught to countless situations in my life.

Now, having been away from the program for a while, I’ve decided to return and do a complete refresher course!

Thanks again.

So helpful!

I hope you don’t mind me emailing you like this. I just wanted to say I purchased your course and it’s been extremely helpful. I’m up to the part about releasing anger and it’s something I’ve needed help with for a while. Thank you for these amazing techniques and information, it has all been so helpful!

Your program is like therapy for me

Hi Suzanne, I’ve really enjoyed this first week. Being your client for some years now, I find this course a practical way to spend more time “in therapy” on-line as I live on an island and can’t always get in for sessions. The Brain Coaching Program [DeCoding the Brain] is so worthwhile and you have done a marvelous job of putting this together to give an understandable process to help us heal from life. Your videos bring you right in front of me as if we were in session. Thank you.
