Anxiety Slayer was created in 2009 by Shann Vander Leek and Ananga Sivyer. We were both blogging, coaching and teaching independently before we teamed up to present Anxiety Slayer with the intention of supporting anyone who's life is over-shadowed by stress or anxiety.

Some kind words from our listeners and readers:
"I listened to some of the free downloads from Anxiety Slayer and I just want to let you know that I found your words extremely helpful during a very difficult period in my life. I guess you could call it burn out although I had no idea what was happening to me and consequently was very frightened.
Some of the things you said about Ayurveda really rang true, and I sensed you really had a wise insight into the states a human mind can get into as a result of prolonged stress. I am feeling very well now, but am now on a path of developing self awareness and am using some of your relaxation podcasts amongst other material."
"It's been such a pleasure to read and listen to your work. It's my first port of call when I need to relax. Thank you for giving so much. I'm sure you are a comfort blanket to more people than just me... but I thank you for what you have done for me in a very hard year."
"I love your website, it's so comforting to read other people's experiences and to know that I'm not the only sufferer of this awful condition of anxiety."
"I stumbled upon your Anxiety Slayer podcasts last month. I'd nearly gotten to the point when anxiety was completely running my life. The podcasts have become an intergral part of my therapy. I listen to a couple during my daily walk. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making them available and for sharing your knowledge with those of us currently swept away in a sea of panic and anxiety. You are certainly a beacon."
