I came across Dr Schaub’s book The Fear and Anxiety Solution after I listened to a show he was interviewed on, and it came at a point in my life where I was really getting to rock bottom personally and professionally. I decided to listen to the book over a weekend (which was a lot to take in but shot me forward at the same time) and I decided at that point to contact him directly.
We had 6 sessions in total and I can honestly say that I am now more self-assured and balanced as a result of following his techniques during and between the sessions. He is supportive and challenging – a great combination as we need to ask ourselves difficult questions which feel uncomfortable but are necessary for growth and he facilitates this process.
Since our sessions my key relationships including my marriage are back on track, I feel considerably less anxiety and I have started a new business. But most importantly of all I am enjoying life again – especially time with my young son.

“Anxiety is a very isolating and challenging condition. It narrowed my world and my experiences so much that day to day life became a struggle for me. I cannot thank Dr. Friedemann Schaub enough for opening up my mind and my heart to see that there’s so much more than the way I was living. I was going through life with blinders on and was so consumed with my thoughts, expectations and worries. Dr. Schaub helped me break those patterns and helped me learn that I could be someone capable, strong and caring without my anxiety. Life can be so much more if you commit to tackling your fears. If you are struggling, please don’t hesitate to contact him! He will change your life.” *

“After years of not being fully successful with my healing process and suffering a great deal because of it, I happened to listen to one of Dr. Friedemann’s radio shows online. Upon hearing his voice and listening to his points of view, I felt that he would be the person to help me. I had spent years in therapy without any results. Not getting the proper care, I took it upon myself to research about healing modalities and had made some gains, but nothing that would heal me completely.
Dr. Friedemann has a unique ability to understand a problem fully and is able to help you face the issue and let it go through deep understanding. After only a few sessions, I was able to sense a difference in my outlook and state of mind and body. I felt more focused. My awareness and energy increased. I had more self-confidences and began to feel more gratitude toward myself and my life.
I can safely say, that Dr. Friedemann’s work with me saved my life in a powerful way. I could have reached some state of resolution with other healers, but it would have taken much more time and it would not have been as complete and permanent. By the time our work ended, I was able to feel myself as the person I truly am – free from anxiety, more centered and with a great deal of appreciation for my life and who I am. Dr. Friedemann’s genuine care and deep understanding, coupled with a focused and loving attention to minute details of your issues enables him to make connections where others fail. Furthermore, he is not afraid to tell you what he perceives as right and wrong and how to proceed. Unlike others who are intimated by the process of giving advice, Dr. Friedemann makes daily recommendations in the process of recovery and encourages you to follow those steps.
I highly recommend working with Dr. Friedemann to those who are ready to let go of their pain once and for all, and move into a more fulfilling life, led by a holistic relationship between your body, mind, heart and spirit so that you are not single handedly leaning on will power or intellect alone; in other words, a balanced life, free from anxiety and self limiting beliefs. It is true, you can heal.”
“Nothing made sense about how I felt about life. I had a happy family, great friends, my full health and a soaring career which afforded me an enviable lifestyle. The more success I had, the worse I felt inside.
Although I usually kept myself busy enough during the day at work to escape my feelings, my downtime was filled with feelings of anxiety and depression. I was worried about everything and constantly imagined doomsday scenarios about my future, none of which were reasonable or consistent with past experiences. I anticipated that at some point I would fail, though I never had. The more I tried to stay on top of the uncertainties of life, the worse I got. All my time with my family was spent in a fearful darkness, I could no longer feel any pleasure. I then went through 5 years of anti-depressants which lifted most of the symptoms. However, the side effects were awful and made me feel disconnected from my emotional life. I decided that this was not a good life and that there must be a better way.
After reading many books, seeing a number of therapists and countless hours on the web, I encountered “The Fear and Anxiety Solution” by Dr. Friedemann Schaub. I read the book and worked through the exercises. I found that it resonated in a way that other resources did not. It helped me to peel away the layers of the past and challenge beliefs I had held about myself unconsciously.
It showed me that different periods of my childhood had instilled deep and buried feelings of worthlessness and that I later developed compensating heroic beliefs. Both of these opposing beliefs remained in conflict with each other and with my present self and manifested themselves as two unconscious personalities – a protector personality and a hero personality. Both hiding in plain sight!
Dr. Friedemann’s approach helped me to uncover, reconcile and value these parts of my psyche, while at the same time building a new set of mature beliefs founded in reality and self compassion. We completed a series of one-to-one counseling sessions using Skype which repeated, refreshed and enhanced the steps in the book and helped me to develop a plan to sustain my progress and work on a new reality. I have now been over a year free of drugs and irrational anxiety. I enjoy life now and have a wholesome sense of self belief that I didn’t realize was missing in the first place. I no longer seek external validation and I no longer have the constant sense that my world is going to come crumbling down. I used to spend so much of my mental life fighting imaginary demons. Now I spend my time doing the things I enjoy and have a renewed vigour and lust for life and all it has to offer. If you are determined to reject the narrative that anxiety, depression and anti depressants are inevitable consequences of modern life and are prepared to do the work, then Dr. Friedemann’s methods can work for you to create a different reality. It is not just about eliminating the negative thinking, but creating a thought system that provides for a rich and fulfilling mental life.
Dr Friedemann is a wonderful person and I enjoyed all our interactions. His program has been transformational for me and I wholeheartedly recommend it. “

“The work with Dr Friedemann has been incredibly helpful in helping me reaching my goal. It is a powerful method and it has helped me to center myself. I feel relaxed, happy and aware. I thank you for you for working with me.”
“I came to Dr. Friedemann based on the advice of a friend of mine who battled anxiety and a paralyzing fear of flying; he had terrific success in overcoming these fears with Dr. Friedemann.
My fear and anxiety were persistent and pervasive throughout my lifetime and I felt these two issues held me back in so many ways. While it was my divorce that brought me to Dr. Friedemann, I uncovered so many other underlying issues that not only helped me come to terms with my divorce and the circumstances surrounding the end of my marriage, but I also saw it as an opportunity for growth and discovery.
When I look at my notes and hear myself talk during our first sessions, I hear and see a completely different person that was insecure, frightened and clinging to a marriage and a way of life that didn’t make sense. In comparison, when I look at myself now, I have brought out that inner self that has been the confident and self-assured man that hid behind the veil of a frightened child who worried about what others thought. I have noticed the change and so have friends, family and colleagues. The work with the subconscious mind powerful indeed and I recommend staying with the daily routines Dr. Friedemann provides you with.
More importantly, buy the book since it lays out the plan and helps make sense of where you are going. The real power is knowing that you can stand on your own two feet; you don’t need anyone or a pill to help you overcome the anxiety that has lingered and prevented you from getting the most out of life.”

Working with Dr. Friedemann has freed me from many many self-defeating patterns that have plagued me all my life. When I started with him I felt & believed I was a prisoner of my life – over the years the beliefs had worm me down & almost taken away my soul.
On the journey I discovered more negative beliefs than I was aware of & they were quite entangled & multifaceted – no wonder they had been driving me crazy & draining my life force for so long. I was riddled with guilt/shame, had almost given up.
Through the process of working with Dr. Friedemann – together we unraveled my history & the deep internalization of the stories around it – which caused me deep pain & suffering. As this happened it (the past) began to have less power over me & at the same time my inner strength & self-love grew. I now have a voice after sitting in shame for decades. I now know what inner strength is.
Dr. Friedmann has so many qualities that make him such a pleasure to work with – namely his sincerity & want to affect real & deep change. His compassion & sensitivity that allow him to understand situations I’m sure he has never himself experienced. But by far his biggest strength for me was his ability to piece together a muddled messy history that taunted me. It felt so good to verbally express my thoughts, emotions & strong feelings & have them heard & then expressed back to me in a way that helped me make sense of it all. I guess it felt like validation & allowed me to then release it & finally become free. Our work together has helped me change my life in a BIG way – but in a gentle way. It wasn’t the way I expected – it wasn’t easy at times. But I am changed, calmer, free & happy.
I’m on MY path now & am moving forward with life in my way. After so many years of people pleasing & tension in my life & body, I now feel renewed & more relaxed. I have a sense of ease – a feeling I didn’t believe I would ever have.
In much gratitude & appreciation
