Are Online Live Group Seminars Effective?

How do Allen Carr’s Zoom seminars measure up to those attended in person?

It’s natural to assume that our live online services were a quickly cobbled together response to the covid crisis but we pioneered our Live ONLINE Group Seminars across the USA & UK years before coronavirus pushed other organisations to follow suit.

In the room or via Zoom — the live group seminars are identical.

Those “attended” via Zoom are exactly the same as “in the room” ones: the same facilitator, the same content, the same money back guarantee, and most importantly — the same success rate. They are live, interactive with Q & As with the therapist/facilitator, with free back up seminars for the few that require them and free of charge telephone/email support too.

We designed our Live Online Group Seminars to be identical to the “in the room” ones as far as practically possible (it’s like being in the room with everyone — except from your kitchen table/comfy chair). All you need to do is find a spare 5–6 hours and you’re all set.

Check out and by all means contact our team for a chat if you’re in anyway unsure or have reservations.

Take it from me, we tested, tested, and tested again and there is no way we’d have offered our clinically proven live group seminars via Zoom unless they achieved the exact same success rate as the “in the room” ones.

I’m proud to say that the World Health Organisation were delighted to utilise the Live Online Group Seminars and of course they were utilised in the clinical trials that resulted in our live group seminars being approved by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE).

What’s included in the live seminar package?:

  • The main 5–6 hour seminar (most people only need this one)
  • Q & A with the Senior Allen Carr Therapist/Facilitator
  • Shorter, different back up sessions for the few that require them
  • Telephone/email support
  • 3-month money back guarantee is included with our group smoking, vaping, and alcohol seminars as well as our 1–1 “other drugs” seminars.

Which kind of addictions & issues are covered by live seminars?:

  • Smoking & Vaping
  • Alcohol
  • Weight/Sugar Addiction
  • “Other drugs” such as Cocaine, Cannabis, Ketamine, Opioids, & Prescription Drug Addiction

Whether attended in the room or via Zoom — the result is the same — check them out on
