Taught By Proven Professionals

Learn from experts in CBT groups

Heather Clague

I learned so much from Heather. Even when she adds a seemingly small comment, it is always so perfectly targeted and helpful. The course has influenced my behavior and happiness daily. Naturally, that flows to other people. Such an incredible blessing

Heather has a knack for providing sincere empathy to the participants in their struggle, without blame, enabling us to open up to see blind spots. As a result of participating in Heather’s 5 Secret’s group, I use the 5 Secrets regularly, have closer relationships with loved ones, and have been able to navigate conflicts with a supervisor more constructively.”

A book club like no other. The goal isn't simply to read and analyze the text of the book. Instead, to learn and grow with like-minded and like-hearted people. Wonderfully organized and a truly worthwhile experience.

"I know this has been a really good course for me. It has helped me understand
SOME OF MY PROBLEMS A LOT BETTER. It is a whole new way of understanding
why I have some of these problems. This has helped me so much. Your guidance
has been right on target. Sometimes I feel like a different person seeing life
through a new pair of glasses."

I believe that I have greatly benefited from this excellent course and the
assignments. But I am most indebted to you, Dawn, for your faithful guidance of
the group and your encouragement was instrumental in crating a safe place to
learn from Dr. Burns’ work.

This is a no-nonsense program. Psycho-babble and reflective talking is left at the
door. Great program!

I learned that my thoughts are basically groundless and distorted. This is great
course. I’d recommend it.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

I found this course to be a great starting point for someone who is depressed or
anxious. It really brings clarity to issues we feel but don’t always know how to put
into words or what to do to challenge our own thinking and change our behavior.
I finally feel unstuck and like I have a shot at improving. This class brings HOPE-

I am in control of my thoughts and therefore my feelings. When I change my
thoughts, I change my feelings. I realized that I am not the only like that. It was a
relief.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

I learned to not lose hope or bash myself. My feelings result from negative
thoughts. Remember I do have bipolar disorder and will have a lifetime to deal
with it. I will have my ups and downs but have tools to help me.

I learned that I can think my way out of situational depression/anxiety by using
the tools provided in this workshop. This is the best thing I ever did for myself
and Dawn was terrific.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

Will probably take the class again. It should be taught in schools. It could help so
many people look at their problems with a different perspective. Loved the class
and would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve their life.

Patterns from childhood carry over as an adult, but you can start anytime to work
on them. I shared personal stories and I wasn’t judged.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

I learned to think before I react and I can only change the way I think/feel and not
others thinking. I thought the class was excellent and well-organized as each
week was a different area of focus. I believe that the class has already made a
huge difference in changing my negative thoughts and overall self-esteem.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

This program has changed my life and I cam so glad I found it. The tools help me
get out of any mood that I may find myself in. This is such a great
course/program. I feel like more people should go through this to better
understand their thinking and why they react the way they do.

I learned how to break things down into easy steps to combat the negative
thoughts. I will use the Daily Mood Log over and over again!

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

I feel better than I have for a long time! I credit this to the book club/course,
taking amino acids and leaving a toxic relationship. I knew a lot of the principles
and theory of CBT but without the support and the regular meetings I would not
have gotten the practice in.

11 Weeks to Self Esteem program:

Not only has my self-esteem increased but my life has changed. I cannot thank
you enough for the time, consideration, and grace you have bestowed on us. This
first course has been free which has been a significant benefit to us all as
participants and the community of which we are part. Through this course I have
learned to talk to myself as I would my best friend or a dear loved one which has
made a real impact on my being kind, gentle and non-judgmental with myself. My
life has been transformed and my feelings of depression and anxiety have

reduced so much that they are at optimal levels now. I could never have expected
or dreamed this could be possible in such a short space of time and it was only
due to this valuable course and the practical tools and techniques that have made
such a wonderful difference for me.

Wanted to just touch base with you and tell you how good I feel having the tools
that I was given with the 11 weeks to self-esteem program. I catch myself often
falling back into the habit but have the tools to climb back out. And the big thing
is I even got a $23,000 raise because my boss said “I’m worth it”.  Really believing
in yourself does make a difference in your life. And I want to thank you for giving
me the tools to do that.

This course was a game changer and I dare say a life saver as it did help me
tremendously to rewire my brain and stopped me from drowning into my
negative thinking spiral which I spent over half of my life in. I highly recommend
this course to anyone who gets occupied by his negative thoughts, you will get to
learn some amazing powerful techniques that will help you overcome any
struggles or difficulties that life may throw at you!
Commitment and determination is all what you need to pass this course with
success!

Mastering Your Adult ADHD, A Cognitive Behavioral Psychoeducational Program

Completing the Mastering ADHD program has been an incredibly positive and
transformative experience for me. The practical strategies and insights I gained have
had a lasting impact, especially the emphasis on using a calendar to stay organized.
Even now, I continue to rely on the tips and tricks I learned, and writing things down has
become a habit that has significantly improved my ability to manage my ADHD
symptoms. The program's comprehensive approach to understanding ADHD, coupled
with the supportive environment provided by instructors and fellow participants, has
boosted my self-awareness, self-management skills, and overall confidence. I am
grateful for the profound impact this program has had on me, and I highly recommend it
to anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of ADHD and learn practical
strategies for managing it effectively.

"Feeling bad and ruminating had seemed an inevitable part of life. Old issues no longer need linger now as The Feeling Great Book taught by Brandon and Heather (and related podcasts by D. Burns) has given me powerful methods to shed unhelpful thinking. I can spot a distortion and stop it in its tracks! "

Jodee F.

Feeling Great Book

"Joining this book club turned out to be a life-changing experience for me. I highly recommend it for anyone--and especially those who struggle with anxiety and depression. I am so grateful to Heather and Brandon for facilitating, and Dr. Burns for developing TEAM-CBT and creating resources like this book club to make education about it accessible. I had read many books and seen many therapists before joining the book club so felt skeptical at first if I would learn anything new or see much value, but am so glad I invested the time. I found that the results of TEAM-CBT are highly consistent, effective, and immediate. Over 1 year later I still use the tools I learned regularly. Learning how to use the daily mood journal gave me an amazing toolkit for slaying anxiety and depression again and again in my life...often in a matter of minutes with my relapse prevention journal! If it were up to me, Dr. Burns and all TEAM-CBT therapists would get a Nobel prize or something for their amazing contribution to humanity. Thank you again!"

Feeling Great Book Club

"The Feeling Great Book Club was an awesome resource to get more information on and better understand Feeling Great. I first read the book on my own and learned a lot, and getting questions answered, seeing live demos and having a consistent small group was super valuable in helping me! The instructors were incredibly warm, empathetic and skilled. I'd highly recommend it!"

For my 5 secrets groups:
“This class is such a great way to learn and practice the various elements of the five secrets! Brandon is kind and extremely knowledgeable as a therapist and a facilitator. His gentle manner creates a safe environment where participants can quickly feel at ease. I learned so much from him as we worked together in a group and in small breakout groups to practice the techniques. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to enhance their relationships and learn how to communicate better with other people.”

For my 5 secrets groups:
"I really enjoyed the class for several reasons. First, the group was very supportive, and you made everyone feel safe and welcome there. The real-life examples and the roll playing gave everyone a chance to practice on issues they were facing now. You gave real practical advice in a very empathic way, which also was a class on how to use empathy in communication! I think taking this class reinforces the teachings of the book in a way that just reading the book does not provide. Your modelling of body language and tone of voice, and real time feedback on our roll playing was very effective and instructional. Finally, seeing other people’s issues and how you responded to them was also very helpful and educational."
