DARE offers a fresh and medication-free approach to eradicating panic attacks and life-restricting feelings of anxiety, however deeply rooted.

A downloadable library of over 50 practical audio guides based on real-life experiences empowers you to engage with your feelings differently. If worry is distracting you from doing your job, enjoying time with your loved ones, or getting a good night’s sleep, then DARE can help.

With fresh content every week you’ll build your own consistent response toolkit to help you manage anxiety and panic attacks in a clear and structured way, and over time, learn how to fade them out of your life completely.

The DARE response method acts as a mental safeguard to prevent minor issues from spiralling into debilitating problems. Practising it will ease the full spectrum of anxiety-related problems which include muscle tension, teeth grinding, insomnia, and general feelings of foreboding.

You’ll benefit from monthly challenges and the full peer-to-peer support of an empathetic online community who will carry you through every setback and onward step with honesty and understanding. Freedom from anxiety and panic attacks is possible if you can dare to think differently.

The DARE App intelligently combines technology with the untold power of shared human experience to help people at every stage of their journey through anxiety to untangle their thoughts and reach their goal to live well.

How Was the DARE Response Developed?

Psychology graduate Barry McDonagh created DARE whilst searching for a solution to his own personal anxiety and panic problems. Barry went on to become a best-selling author of several books related to the treatment of anxiety including the 2001 publication Panic Away.


“All the counselling, medication and books I have purchased within the 15 years just masked the fear, but never eliminated it for good. Your knowledge has put me at peace and your wording was clear and understanding. Perfect.”

“Non-judgemental, honest and indeed 'daring' approach which busts the myths surrounding all forms of anxiety.”

“The approach is the first one that has actually worked for me.”

Through transformational thinking the DARE response can:

* Ease Anxiety
* Reduce stress
* Calm Your Mind
* Lengthen Sleep
* Improve Focus and Concentration
* Make you More Present in Your Relationships
* Break Cycles of Negative Thinking
* Allow forgiveness of Yourself and Others
* Increase self-worth and confidence
* And so much more...

A new perpective. And it works.

If you want to build an effective arsenal, as opposed to medicating, or as opposed to managing or avoiding. If you want relief or respite over the persistent dread, every minute, every hour, every day... give this app a chance. The DARE Workbook is another part of that arsenal for me. Imagine that, nothing to be medicated away. Nothing to fear. Barry will help you understand your own power of influence. Barry and his team know what they are doing. These folks will teach you how to self-correct by observing what's actually going on. Breath again, and breath deeply, push the fear out. Make room for the breath. Get familiar with what is actually going on for yourself.

This app has been very helpful in my journey getting through Anxiety. I have been doing great for the last few years with minimal Anxiety. Lately my symptoms have been really strong. Getting on this app has thought me so many great techniques and has educated me so much more on what my body and mind are going through. This in combination of lots of prayer has been so helpful and I’m grateful for this app. I received a news letter today from Barry Mcdogahg and it hit home and actually made me very emotional because it felt good to know that there are people who completely get you and your not alone! Thank you!!

It’s helpful

I bought audiobook and have suffered from anxiety,panic,agoraphobia for decade plus. The book Dare and this app...have given me hope. I’m not cured yet but I know it’s possible now. I’ve only listened to a few clips but it’s all very helpful and reminds me of Headspace app. I hope one day I can review both the book and app and say I’m cured. I want my life back. Anxiety has beat me up but I’m still here...and now I know it really is a bluff. I will keep at it and practice and get there. Just get this app and Dare book. Both are 5 stars.
