The Intensive Course

With Amanda Foster, This Naked Mind Certified Coach & ALP Practitioner

What is the Intensive?

Find Freedom, Happiness, Control and Peace with alcohol - without worrying about failure, judgment, fear or shame.

The Naked Mind Intensive is a self-paced 9 module LIVE online learning program. It is for smart, driven, successful people who find it difficult to stay in control with alcohol. The program is created by internationally bestselling author Annie Grace and taught with live coaching by Annie and certified Naked Mind Coaches.

This Naked Mind has been widely acclaimed as the most effective, neuroscience-based method for happily and easily finding freedom from alcohol.

Let’s cut right to the chase...

Are you smart, driven and in control in most areas of your life but for some reason alcohol is a strange exception?

You’ll learn the science behind this bizarre little mystery and why it is NOT YOUR FAULT!

Have you tried to stop or cut back in the past but have been unable to do it without feeling deprived and miserable? (So you say screw this... and just go back to it?)

Welcome to the club. We’ll explore where these feelings come from, why our culture has set us up

to fail, and what exactly we can do about it!

Do you find yourself drinking out of habit, or out of boredom...? And then regret it later?

Ahhh habits... they rewire our brains, and can make life easy or oh-so-difficult. The good news, when we use the science to our advantage they become one of our most powerful change tools.

Do you want to drink less, so you set limits but then something stressful happens and suddenly you are back in to your old routines, and somehow you even end up drinking more than before you set the limits?

Yep, me too. Stress was one of the main reasons I drank. And every time I tried to moderate the efforts resulted in me drinking more than before! Let me show you the psychology behind this crazy-phenomenon and how to turn it around.

Are you tired of thinking about drinking, and want to shift your perspective so you have active control over those thoughts? And drinking becomes a decision instead of a reaction?


I was sooo tired of thinking about drinking. How long until I could drink again? How much would I allow myself to drink? Would I be able to handle it? Or would it get out of control... again?

If any, or all of this sounds familiar then you are in the right place.

Woman at a Desk

Tell me more...

It’s not your fault. You’ve simply had the wrong tools.

In fact the tools you know of, that are supposed to be helpful, like willpower, or the idea of complete abstinence - are actually making things harder than they need to be.

What sets This Naked Mind apart from any other program?

You don’t need to stop drinking when you sign up... in fact stopping may not even be your goal - and that’s ok!

You’ll learn how the idea of ‘never having another drink’ can actually keep people stuck! There is no need to change your behaviour until you actually want to. You will never be pressured to make a decision that you are not ready to make, and even better that you don’t want to make.

No Judgment. No Shame. No Labels.

You will never be judged -- no matter what your personal goals are. You will never be asked to take on a label or to declare yourself powerless.

Instead you will learn how, between your ears, you have the most powerful tool in regaining control and freedom around alcohol - you just need to be shown how to use it and maybe even more importantly be allowed to veto all the crazy misinformation in society’s conversation around drinking!

You won’t need willpower.

This is a willpower-free-zone. You’ll learn exactly why setting limits on yourself, and not allowing yourself to have a drink has the exact opposite effect that you want -- making you want to drink even more!

There is no guesswork (or religion). This is a rational, intelligent, science-based approach.

You’ll learn the psychology behind your desires, firmly rooted in the latest psychology and neuroscience. You’ll understand your unwanted cravings, desires, and how to eliminate them before they become urges you feel compelled to act on.

There is no failure. None. Ever.

With one teeny-tiny exception. The only failure is not to begin.

You won’t be alone.

You’ll have all the support you need. You’ll have fun, with new content every day online.  You’ll join thousands of people who have already found freedom, joy and happiness that comes from regaining control over alcohol.

Some of what you will learn...

• Why your conscious decision not to drink is undermined by your unconscious desire for alcohol, how those desires became unconscious in the first place, and how to reverse them so you have full control over your decisions again.

• How to not only reclaim your personal power against alcohol, but maintain it. Meaning you’ll be completely free from the endless cycle of decisions about drinking.

• The truth about alcohol, why it’s so easy for it to become such a significant part of our lives, and why you are not an alcoholic.

• Why excessive drinking is at an all-time record high, and whose fault this really is.

• The real reasons alcohol companies spend so much money on marketing and advertising, and some of the sneaky tricks they use to sell more (and make sure you stay stuck buying!)

- and how to easily counteract their subconscious messaging.

Is this right for me?

The Intensive is perfect for you if...

• You’re of two minds about drinking -- you both want to drink less but also feel like something is missing whenever you abstain.

• You’re wondering if alcohol is taking more from you than it's giving back?

• You’re curious about drinking less but are pretty sure you are not an alcoholic.

• You try to drink less but find that life is stressful and alcohol has always been one of your major stress relievers.

• You have a love/hate relationship with alcohol. You set drinking limits in the morning and then blow right by them once happy hour rolls around.

• You’ve tried to quit before (possibly many times) by using willpower. And it didn’t work - which makes you feel frustrated, weak, and defeated around alcohol.

• You’re drinking more than you ever wanted to, without ever making a choice to do so.

• You can go a few days without alcohol but it feels miserable, like you’re being deprived of something important.

• You are ready to regain complete control over your drinking habits, your life, your health, your happiness, and your freedom.

• You’re looking forward to feeling great on a Saturday night and feeling amazing on Sunday morning.

• You’re ready to show up in life as your best self and feel confident and in control again.

What exactly is in this program?

The Intensive is a coaching program that includes both live calls and self-paced pre recorded videos.

• It is a self-paced program that you can start whenever you are ready and work through at your own pace.

• For best results, purchase this in conjunction with a coaching package. Or receive it for FREE when you purchase the 10 Coaching Pack Bundle. 

• Work directly with Amanda and get your questions answered.

Becoming Aware

To start, we go through an eye opening process to become aware of our current belief structure around alcohol - without judgment! All change happens on the other side of awareness!

Why We Think We Like To Drink

We explore the crazy theories society has given us about why we might be drinking more than we want to, and whose fault it is anyway. (Hint: if you’ve believed you are at fault - you don’t want to miss this module! It will free you from a lifetime of guilt around your drinking choices.)

Reframing Our Perspective

So if what we’ve been told is wrong, and even holding us back, how do we get it right? This module is all about a massive reframe.

We cover the very foundations of painless habit change as well as how incredibly our culture is starting to shift around alcohol. (Hint: being alcohol free may truly be the next “in thing”).

You. And Your Body. Whole, Strong and Complete

Just about every product (and every commercial) is aimed to tell us that we are missing something. That we are somehow incomplete. And if we just buy ‘that thing’, then we will be whole.

This module we get to the bottom of that insanity and instead develop a real, lasting perspective of how incredible each of us truly is.

Confirmation Bias & Cognitive Dissonance

Big words that will change your entire life. Why do we both want to drink more and less at the same time? Why is the internet chock-full of memes that glorify drinking?

We’ll learn how exactly advertising works in the brain and find out the real reasons companies spend so much on marketing and advertising and some of the sneaky tricks they’re using to make sure you stay stuck! Plus, how you can easily counteract this messaging - and become immune!

Alcohol & Our Emotions

We can’t fix this until we understand the deep needs that alcohol seems to fill. We explore the intense relationships between alcohol and the top emotions we associate with drinking: fun, happiness, stress-relief, friendship, intimacy, and relaxation.

We’ll explore what’s true and what may not be true. And I’ll never tell you what to think, I simply provide the evidence and you draw your own conclusions. This may be our most transformational module together.

Neuroscience, Genetics & Personality

This is the module where everything suddenly becomes clear. The crazy behaviours we don’t understand, why we try to change and are unable to, the entire idea of an addictive personality.

We’ll learn the truth about alcohol and the brain, why it can easily become such a significant part of our lives and why you are not an alcoholic.

Alcohol & Social Life, Sex & Our Culture

Alcohol is the only drug on earth you have to justify not taking. Why is this? What does it mean for someone hoping to change their relationship with alcohol? Will society ever change?

Why is it that the minority always knows something the majority doesn’t - and what exactly that is and how to use it to your advantage to get the life you want without being controlled by alcohol. We cover all this and so much more in this exciting and empowering module.

Launching Into Your New Naked Life

What does it really mean to be able to ‘take it or leave it’ and what exactly does it take to get there? Is moderation possible? Should I try? How can I know if I am someone who can moderate? What happens if I mess up? What if I am not yet ready?

We’ll address these vital topics, plus so much more, as you map out your customised and incredible path to take back control.

The Secret to Happily & Easily Drinking Less

I know you wish we could just skip to the secret! I do too, but it doesn’t work that way :)

We need the entire 9 modules to rewire your brain, so that this module you can happily, effortlessly, move forward into your new life without shame, labels, pain, strict rules and without ever feeling like you are missing out.

This module is where the magic happens. This moment was one of the best of my entire life, I love seeing it with every new person who goes through this approach (now thousands and thousands!) And I can’t wait to experience it with you.

“Amanda has such an engaging personality that it's a pleasure to talk to her. She gave me the space to explore my issues and asks just the right questions to make me think differently and move me on. She has really helped me to deal with issues that have been troubling me for years.” Paul B

Here are a few things to put that cost into perspective:

• This Naked Mind did a survey and the average Naked Mind participant spent between £12 - £15 per day on alcohol. Even if you just cut back, this course will pay for itself in less than 100 days... and then the savings really starts piling up. I have saved over £17,000 since I made this amazing change in my life...

• Prescription costs/ medicine costs / days off sick at work. Prevention is the best medicine. If you compare the price to the fact that alcohol is causing havoc in your liver, and just about every other system in your body you quickly realise how much this course can save you. Not only in time and pain but also financially.

• Just a month of coaching from alcohol-free coaches is £1,300 - £1,600 GBP (and generally

that’s for just 30 days of email coaching.) With the 10 session program you get 10 weeks of live 1 to 1 

coaching PLUS all your questions answered in a free messaging service. With the course only you get 9 sessions of online support. Not only is the program more effective, but it's a fraction of the price.

• And let’s not even get into rehab costs. If you let this get worse and have to go that way in the future, we are talking £20,000 or more.

• One last thought. We invest our time in what we invest our money in. I know this is true. And I want you to get the very best results.

Important Note:

This plan is not for you if...


• You have a strong physical addiction to alcohol, and find yourself becoming physically ill or suffer from intense withdrawal symptoms whenever you cut back or abstain -- such as delirium tremens or hallucinations.

• If this is you and you are truly physically addicted to alcohol, this course may help with your emotional and psychological addiction by adjusting your perspective and your relationship with alcohol, helping to erase your desires to drink, but is not a supplement for making sure you stay healthy through the process.

• If you are physically addicted, please consult your doctor to receive medical assistance through the detoxification process. Your health is critical to your success!

Still have questions?

I’ve got you covered.

And if you still have questions email me at and I will get back to you right away!

I am not ready to stop drinking just yet - do I need to stop before I start this course?

No! You won’t be asked to make any change until you are ready, empowered and feeling good about it.


Deprivation creates stress and stress makes us drink. The point is to absorb the information in a state of mind that is positive and hopeful – so you will never be asked to make a change before you are ready to embrace it.

Will I have to stop drinking forever?

That will be totally up to you. Many participants find complete freedom from alcohol. Others regain their control over alcohol and learn to have an occasional drink without wanting more.

What if I can’t afford it?

A bit of tough love from me :) If you are drinking every day, you are spending this money on alcohol. Tolerance only goes one way. That’s how alcohol works. If you don’t do something about this now, it will be worse tomorrow, not better. TNM did a survey of hundreds of people and the average person was spending £12 - £15 GBP on alcohol, per day. Some less and a few more, but 73% said they spent £13 - £15 per day. This course will pay for itself in less time than the course takes to complete. Not to mention, all the other costs associated with continuing to drink like you do today; health and medical costs, lost time and productivity, relationship costs and so many others. And maybe the Intensive is not right for you but no matter what, if you are here on this page reading this, please invest in yourself in this area, it doesn’t matter if it is here with me, or somewhere else, but getting back in control of your relationship with alcohol is one of the best investments you will ever make.

One other thought on this. Coaching averages £1,300 - £3,000 GBP per month, rehabilitation

and detox services are thousands of pounds, and of course continuing to drink will cost you thousands - just over the next year. When compared to some of the other options, I truly believe, for the value and life transformation this course can provide, this is your best investment.

Will I have to avoid the bar or pub?

No! This Naked Mind helps you overcome your subconscious desires so you can still have a social life. Instead of wanting to drink, you will have the chance to make a conscious decision to NOT drink, and won’t feel guilty for doing it!

How can I tell if I am physically addicted?

A recent government study (by the CDC) showed that only 10% of heavy drinkers are physically addicted. If you cannot get past 1 day, or feel physically ill when you take a break from drinking, you might be addicted. If you suspect this, it is vital you consult with your doctor. This program is not intended as medical advice and detox from alcohol can be life threatening.

When will the coaching calls take place? I want to make sure I can join.

This is entirely up to you. We can fit around your schedule. Pick the day of the week that best suits you. 

Do you talk about starting again? I enjoyed 14 months blissfully alcohol free but then an

event in my life triggered a relapse. I am not sure how to start over.

Yes! This course is designed to give you the best chance at getting started and even more importantly making it stick for the long term.

Do you address the underlying reasons we drink? I suspect some things in my past may be keeping me stuck.

Yes. In addition to the course material there is an entire bonus course called Living Naked Course. Living Naked Course goes deep into living beyond self-medication and in order to do that we need to get straight with our thinking and make peace inside our own minds. The Living Naked Course bonus provides actionable, science-based information to help you do exactly that. Ask me about this when your coaching comes to an end.

More questions

Can I go at my own pace?

Yes. You will have lifetime access to all the materials, so if something comes up that is no problem. Achieving these life-changing results is worth taking your time. However long it takes you to process the information and ensure you’re getting the most benefit is entirely up to you. Again, the program is yours forever.

My drinking is such a habit, and I know it takes a lot of work to change a habit. Do you address this?

Great question! Habits are consciously learned and have since become unconscious. Your brain turns those actions into routine to save mental space. The great thing about This Naked Mind is that it helps you change those habits into conscious thoughts again, so you have power over them.

I have a lot of guilt about my drinking. Will this course help?

This Naked Mind is designed specifically to help free you from the guilt of drinking. By changing your relationship with alcohol, you will become empowered, instead of dealing with constant guilt.

How does this work on cravings? My cravings are so intense and have kept me stuck.

As long as you are not physically addicted, your cravings are mostly in your subconscious mind, and This Naked Mind helps you address your desires on a subconscious level so you understand them and can properly manage them.

Can I become an occasional drinker?

The choice is entirely yours. This Naked Mind helps you reframe your outlook on drinking alcohol, so you can have as little or as much as you want. In fact, many students report having a single drink and then feeling the urge to stop, instead of going back for more.

I’ve tried to quit before but always go back. Does this course address the long term? I want this to stick!

Chances are high that the reasons you’ve returned to alcohol is because you didn’t address the subconscious desires to drink. With This Naked Mind, I’ll help you reframe those subconscious desires so you’re aware of them before they become conscious thoughts.

What is the time commitment?

Each module contains a series of short videos (3-10 min in length) for a total of 45 min - 1 hour of videos. The recommended pace is 1 module per week, but this program is self-paced so you can work through it on your own time. You will also have short reflections to write or contemplate and a 1 hour weekly live group coaching call.

Can I do the program with my partner?

Definitely. You can both login to the same account and do it together. Accountability makes it much more fun!

Important Note: This course is only for serious participants who are willing to put in the time. If this is not you, than this course is not for you.

It’s decision time!

Make the decision to say yes to you.

To your future. You are the hero of this story, let me help you break free and become the person you were always meant to be. Trust me to be your guide. I won’t let you down. And I can’t wait to begin.
