Memrec is a fast and effective way to treat fear

The Memrec method is attractive for two reasons: its short duration and high effectiveness. The treatment consists of two sessions, and for 85% of the people, the treatment is successful.

Intense fear for a moment, but then...

Kindt Clinics was founded by Prof. Dr. Merel Kindt, a professor at the University of Amsterdam. After 20 years of scientific research, she developed the fast and effective Memrec method for treating anxiety. We welcome people from all over the world.

Memrec is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy, with the difference being that it involves very brief exposure to anxiety followed by the one-time use of a pill. The next day, you are exposed again, and ideally, you should notice that the panic is gone. It’s an intensive treatment, but with fast results.

For whom

Memrec is suitable for almost all specific phobias, and some forms of panic disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Memrec stands for memory reconsolidation (re-storage of fear memory).

Fast and effective

Three appointments

Online intake, treatment session and outcome test session.

High success rate

85% of our patients are treated successfully.

Permanent result

After a successful treatment, the fear does not return.

A treatment generally consists of two sessions

The confrontation

The goal of the confrontation session is to weaken the irrational fear. In the Memrec method, this is achieved by briefly eliciting the fear once. This activates all brain connections associated with the fear. Nothing happens that you haven't decided for yourself.

After eliciting the fear, a one-time pill (a commonly used beta-blocker) is administered. This prevents the fear from being reconsolidated in the brain. You stay with us for a while to let the pill take effect.

The test

The purpose of the test is to experience the effect of the treatment. This effect becomes noticeable only from a day after the treatment. During sleep, the brain processes all experiences of that day. Therefore, one or a few days after the treatment session, the test follows to see if it has been successful.

For 85% of our patients, one treatment is sufficient to permanently alleviate severe anxiety. We take the time to build confidence that the panic will stay away.

Each treatment is tailor-made


For phobias, you confront the fear once, usually by encountering the thing you fear.


For panic, it’s necessary to deliberately induce a panic attack once.


For PTSD (after a single event), we evoke the fear imaginatively.

Medical screening

In the Memrec treatment, we use a single pill, a beta-blocker. This beta-blocker has been around for 60 years and is used daily by tens of millions of people worldwide, either for temporarily reducing anxiety (for example, during a driving test) or daily as a blood pressure reducer.

It goes without saying that we don’t administer this pill lightly, even though it’s a one-time dosage. At Kindt Clinics, we collaborate with a physician who is responsible for the medical screening and prescribing of the one-time medication. We have had no adverse experiences with the use of this pill in scientific research or in practice.

Reviews about Kindt Clinics

Very positive. The sessions are intense, but the guidance is excellent, and the results are extremely good. I am super happy with the outcome and proud of what I have accomplished together with Kindt Clinics.

Family and friends are incredibly enthusiastic about my bizarre and rapid "recovery". I now go through life much more relaxed because I no longer have the fear of losing control when I see a spider.
