Dr. Friedmann helped me to trust and truly love myself and I’ll be forever grateful

​A friend referred me to Dr. Friedmann at a time when frankly, I was not in a good place. I’d been to therapy before, and it was okay, but I never really felt I resolved anything. My experience with Dr. Friedemann however, was just on a whole other level. From the very first session, I felt a shift happen. And now, today…I am no longer stuck in the same patterns I had been for years. Dr. Friedmann has helped me, supported me, and, more importantly, he has given me the tools to help myself. I am no longer repeating the same self-defeating patterns but have established new healthy ones.
Today, I am in a completely different place. I am not the person I was. I am me, finally! Dr. Friedmann helped me to trust and truly love myself, and I’ll be forever grateful.

I know I said it isn't magic, but it seems like magic to me [. . .]

Dr. Friedemann changed my life, but what he really did was bring me back to life and give me hope.

Doing deep inner work, and opening your heart to become your most authentic self is never easy, especially if there are years and years of rejection, pain and performance to uncover. Mark gave himself fully into the process, and through it, found the space and self-compassion to heal and express himself fully in the world.

I wish I’d done it a long time ago

From my earliest years I frequently heard people tell me I was so talented and so capable, and wondering why I didn’t do more with it. It was true, I did have a lot of talents and abilities – but I had a hesitance to truly commit to any of them beyond the “hobby” level, and would even use one to distract myself from feelings of inadequacy in the others. Meanwhile, my actual work was always mostly just about paying the rent. Though I always managed to bring more creativity into my jobs when I had the chance, many of them were what a friend characterized as “air-conditioned hell.” My needs were met, there was some security, but I wasn’t ever really diving into the things that made me the happiest. I learned to “settle for less” in so many ways, and always had some outside circumstance to rationalize it with.

I also had problems with relationships. Although I knew I was gay when I was 13, I never thought there was anything “wrong” with me in that regard. I just felt like I was unequal or lacking; even at around three or four years old, I had a view of myself as “undeserving” or “unjustly excluded.” When I started entering the world of romantic relationships, the same thing played out – a desire to be accepted and loved, coupled with the conviction that I could not be, and didn’t even deserve to be. So I couldn’t really be myself; every new friendship/relationship felt like the countdown to the eventual abandonment and disappointment.

So when I looked back at my life, I saw many impressive achievements against a backdrop of pessimism and failure to follow through, and a conviction that I didn’t really deserve success or love or acceptance.

Several years ago, I felt exhausted. I felt utterly disappointed with myself, looking back at all the abandoned endeavors. It felt like life was one big imposter syndrome… “If I really get close to someone who’s stable and successful, they’ll realize what a loser I am, so better just stay away.” I also realized that I’d started judging people who looked successful. In good shape? They must be a shallow gym bunny. Wealthy? They must be a drone interested only in money. Popular? They must be all about pleasing others. Of course this was another way of avoiding facing my own thoughts.

I realized that I was struggling with anxiety and even some fear. So I got onto Google and looked up fear and anxiety, and Dr. Schaub’s videos came up. I went through lots of them, did some of the guided meditations, and I felt like I was getting some real keys to what was going on. I ordered “The Fear and Anxiety Solution,” and started keeping track of my self-talk. It was the first time I’d every really paid attention to what I was thinking about myself and questioning whether it was really true.

I decided to work with Dr. Friedemann one-on-one. It was worth every cent. I also appreciated the fact that although there weren’t weekly sessions (It was clear that I was the one really doing the work and he was there to guide that) he was also present in between sessions to clarify things and help me when I came up against any stumbling blocks.

Dr. Friedemann and I talked specifically about the profession issue, and through his questions, he guided me to the “edge” of my story – where I could look at it from a more objective standpoint, but also look outward, beyond it. Almost immediately I realized that I’d been looking at others and condemning myself because I couldn’t do it their way – but upon dropping the self-judgment, I could also see that one of the reasons I respected them all was that they had found ways, all unique, of living different, divergent parts of their lives, combining stability and adventure and travel. That was the beginning of envy/self-condemnation shifting to inspiration and new ideas about my own prospects.

This is one of the most valuable take-aways from our work – the ability and willingness to recognize these “stories” for what they are – not only in retrospect to see my present situation more clearly, but also to catch them as soon as they start suggesting themselves.

This has got to be the most valuable approach that I learned: To value that voice that doesn’t speak in logic and words, but through emotions, to learn to hear it; be grateful for what it does, but also speak back to it in the language it can understand. If a kid gets frightened by a spider in a garden, we can teach him to respect and appreciate spiders, not be afraid of gardens because they might have a spider in them.

I used to see life as a series of interesting roads that all ended up at locked gates. Now I see it as an endless array of choices. Procrastination used to be a major issue for me, even on inconsequential things, but I’m getting a lot better at seeing it for what it is and moving ahead. This spring, for the first time, I got my taxes in ahead of the deadline. I’m not afraid about finances as I used to be. I used to always let my room turn into a complete mess for long periods of time, and then go through and organize everything. It looked great, but within a week it was a mess again. Now it’s organized and it stays that way; it seems almost intolerable to just throw something on the floor. I haven’t left without making my bed in months. These things might seem a little trivial but it’s a reflection of the changing outlook on life. I’m also much more thorough with my plants, some of which take a lot of care.

A few years ago I couldn’t have imagined being so thorough and consistent in their care. Whether it entails deeper involvement in things or a higher level of responsibility, I feel like I’m moving forward in life again.

Dr. Friedemann and I aren’t having regular sessions now, but I look forward to checking in now and then in the future. Working with him has been a wonderful, if sometimes painful, journey, but I can also say that the most painful realizations also came together with the greatest gains. I wish I’d done it a long time ago.

His program aided me through […] the complete removal of anxiety in my day to day life

I am 19 years old and started working with Dr. Friedemann as I was struggling with frequent anxiety and panic attacks. I would often not want to go out in public and prefer to stay within the confines of my own bedroom. Dr. Friedemann helped me identify the incidents in my life that had been the roots of my anxiety. Over the space of only a few months, his program aided me through not only to the complete removal of anxiety in my day to day life – but I am also far happier with myself and my life than I have been over the last few years. I highly recommend his services.

Thank you, Dr. Friedemann

Anxiety, anger, and depression lost their tight grip

Dr. Friedemann offered a much needed solution to my anxiety. I gained a completely new perspective on a number of issues that kept me stuck in life. Anxiety, anger, and depression lost their tight grip since working with Dr. Friedemann. Our sessions together resulted in greater joy and freedom in my life. Interestingly, my life could have been full of joy and love before, however, I pushed it away. It is a great relief to me and my family to now realize my true capacity for giving and receiving love. I am very grateful for Dr. Friedemann and integrity of his work. Thank you!!

My life has become fuller, richer, and more authentic

Through my work with Dr. Friedemann Schaub, I’ve discovered ways of letting go of a lifetime of fears and self-imposed limitations that kept my life small, detached, and guarded. While it took a great deal of honesty and self-reflection, the results have been incredibly powerful. My life has become fuller, richer, and more authentic. I have allowed myself to engage in more honest relationships, both professional and personal.

Life can get away from us. I made a very conscious effort to change. With the help of Dr. Schaub, I have learned to embrace life and will be forever grateful.

I am seeing wonderful positive results in my life and in my business

I initially started seeing Friedemann because I was experiencing tremendous anxiety and was unable to make phone calls in my business. For many years, I had also been taking anti-depressants. Because of the Time-Line therapy, very soon after starting treatment with Friedemann I was able to discontinue the anti-depressant medication. Before the Time-Line Therapy, I had tried to discontinue the medication with very poor results and always needed to return to a very high dosage. Now, because of the work with Friedemann, I have been without anti-depressant medication for several months and am doing incredibly well. All of the original reasons for going to see him are no longer an issue and I feel confident, in control of my life, and I am seeing wonderful positive results in my life and in my business.

I don’t even recognize my old self

When I came to see Friedemann I had given up on life and wanted to die. I hated myself and everyone around me. I was suffering from bipolar disorder, idiopathic hypersomnia, PTSD, and numerous physical ailments (stomach ulcers, headaches, weight gain, etc.) After working with Friedemann I gained a new outlook on life. I am energetic and positive. I look forward to the future and I have learned to like myself again. I also lost 15 lbs and don’t suffer from daily headaches or painful stomach cramps. I don’t even recognize my old self. It doesn’t seem like me, perhaps it never was.

The best healers are those who teach us how to heal ourselves

There is an old saying that the best healers are those who teach us how to heal ourselves. Friedemann’s methods are wonderful. I never felt re-traumatized as I worked through past issues (from this and previous life and spirit memories), but he showed me tools with which to continue my growth and healing once our work together was completed. He is quite no-nonsense and I was impressed by how he not only listened to what I had to say and how I felt, but he also HEARD what I did not or could not say. When one seeks out therapy of any kind, one puts themselves into a very vulnerable place. I felt comfortable and safe with my emotions in his presence. I recommend him to a lot of people. Truly, there is no greater recommendation I could give than the smile on my face that now replaces what had been the sorrow in my soul.

I am unquestionably a new person

I was suffering from extreme anxiety and fear that interfered with my eating for over a year before I met Friedemann. I now eat normally and engage in activities I avoided due to anxiety. Friedemann guided me to recognize my inner strength and gave me the ability to be at peace with myself. I noticed a dramatic difference in my view of the world after only one session. Friedemann is extremely competent, highly skilled, and a caring practitioner. I am very grateful to have crossed paths with Friedemann. I am unquestionably a new person.

I feel blessed to have worked with [Dr. Schaub]

In under 10 hours of therapy, Friedemann helped me work through childhood trauma and body image issues that had plagued me for 10 years. He is an intelligent, creative, wise, and caring healer. His therapeutic techniques gave me the freedom to create how I want my life to be now and in the future. I feel very blessed to have worked with him.

Kirsten S

I was able to move past my fear

Through my work with Friedemann, I was able to move past my fear of speaking to groups of people. But on a deeper level, I was able to see and separate from the anxiety that I had allowed to become an overwhelming force. I am grateful to say that it was replaced with a feeling of calm and, most importantly, a new sense of confidence and knowing that I am in control.
