At last - an easy way to get your clients REALLY talking!

The in8 Cards Online Workshop

Why learn to use Anxiety Freedom Cards?

Are you a counsellor or coach looking for ways to support your clients to feel better quickly? Are you looking for tools to get people talking easily, without pressure, so that you can help them to achieve better outcomes with less stress for you because you have access to great tried and tested resources and the confidence to use these tools effectively?


Perhaps some of your clients find it difficult to know where to start, or you have other clients who appear ‘stuck’ or yet others who you know are looking for further help but have lost their direction - well, as a therapist I know exactly what that feels like!


Perhaps you are suffering from ‘burnout’ or that your work life balance is well out of whack, or perhaps you are trying to find a way to offer short term counselling when most of your experience is in longer term work.


When I first qualified I was excited because I knew I could make a difference in the world. I had the training and skills. I certainly had the passion and now I had the qualification. And whilst I really helped some people, there were some clients who were difficult to engage.


I needed something more!

I needed something that would engage my clients, something that would feel relevant to them and look interesting. Something that would allow us to change perspective and jointly focus on their issues. Something that would take the pressure off - especially in their first few sessions. And something that would help them to know that I genuinely had their well-being as my first priority.


How the cards were created

So my partner and I took some of the basic ideas that underpinned our training and we created some practical, physical, tangible tools that we could use to engage our clients, quickly, easily and effectively. First we used them with our clients, then we started sharing them with our colleagues, other counsellors, therapists and coaches.


That first set of cards became the core idea behind the in8 system. Colleagues who bought the cards loved them, but as more people started using them they started asking for training on different ways to use them in practice. 


Training in how to use the cards

We ran face to face workshops for years and then as 2020 dawned we started offering our workshops online.


Now we are offering this brand new online workshop for the first time. It is the result of 30 years of joint experience (between me and my partner) of working with clients, and talking to people like you, who are out there on the front line working with real people. This approach has provided us with better client results, better income and more free time. Now is the time to share all this with you.


And you can get it for less than half price!

"This tool means you don't have to rack your brains"

  • Back in March 2020, as we all entered lockdown, in8 moved its popular one-day card masterclass to an online (zoom-based) format. Here is some feedback from one of the early online masterclasses

Engage your clients quickly

  • Would you like a simple tool that is guaranteed to engage your clients and get them talking about the things that really matter?

  • Would you enjoy knowing that whatever issue your next client presents with, you have a quick and easy way to engage them, that will be useful and relevant for them.

  • Imagine having a way to help even the most reserved client to open up!

  • Would you like to know that your future sessions will be easier and less stressful?

  • Do you have a vision for helping more people but sometimes feel overwhelmed or under-resourced to make it happen any time soon?

  • Are you struggling with getting your own work / life balance to work well for you?

  • Are you new to this business and wanting to hit the ground running with your new-found skills?

  • Do you feel stressed by your one-to-one client commitments and are looking to help more people by running your own groups?

  • Are you struggling to build a therapy, counselling or coaching business?

View the cards using the illuminate app

You may already have a physical set of Anxiety Freedom Cards, but if not, just use the digital version that is included with this workshop.


The "illuminate" app is included in the in8 Cards Online Workshop and gives you a full digital set of cards on your phone, tablet or laptop screen.


You can move the cards around, resize them, maximise them, sort them and share the images with your client either when working face to face, or when working remotely using "screen share".

Why does this work so well?

  • Firstly, the ideas which underpin this whole approach provide us with the understanding required to minimise stress and anxiety. Applying these ideas for yourself and your clients will help you to build your own business and enable you to reach more people.

  • Secondly, the tools that we have developed based upon these ideas are world-class and really make the ideas come alive in a practical and totally usable way.

  • Lastly, there really is nothing else out there that compares to this. It is completely unique, and as such it really will give you an advantage over those who don’t use this tool.

  • Oh, and I should also add that doing this workshop is also a great way to get really great value CPD!

Does this resonate for you?

  • You are looking for practical tools that will help your people in these difficult times - even when working remotely.

  • You would love to have something that is guaranteed to help with even your "most stuck" clients.

  • You recognise that there are more and more people who desperately need your help.

  • You’ve spent a lot of money on training, books, supervision and all kind of apps, websites and advertising.

  • You care deeply about improving emotional well-being for the people around you.

Our commitment to you


We discovered that more than half of the therapists and coaches that we surveyed reported that they sometimes struggled with their own anxiety issues. Our mission is all about sharing how to live optimistically in a time of great change and uncertainty.


We have therefore developed effective online tools which will help you connect even more authentically with your clients.


Anxiety Freedom Cards are based on the "needs model of well-being"* which helps us to understand what people actually need in order to thrive.


This workshop will provide you with vital insights, indispensable tools, valuable resources and the support that you need in order to make an even bigger positive difference in the world.


* The "needs model of well-being" is the simple idea that all human beings are born with innate resources (skills, capabilities). We also have innate needs (forms or nourishment) that we seek within our environment. And we live optimally when we are using all of these resources to get our innate needs met in balance.

  • Adrian Chase uses the cards with every client in his coaching practice and gets his clients to ‘spill the beans’ about what they need in their lives and businesses.

Why did Catriona feel "spellbound"?

  • Catriona describes her first experience of in8's cards as "spellbinding" and how they gave her an "amazing sense of progress and achievement" in this one minute video.

Now is the time!


Seize the day! There has never been a time in history when more people have needed your help and yet are struggling to access that help.


At last we now have the ideas (the needs model of wellbeing), the tools (the illuminate digital app), the training (the online cards workshop) and the community (the private Facebook group) that will allow you to make an even bigger positive impact on emotional health and well-being.
