Welcome to Hypnosis with Fred

Helping people discover inner strengths through self-hypnosis

What is Hypnosis?


Hypnosis is grounded on the belief that people (including children and teens) have many more strengths and abilities than they consciously recognize. In our normal waking state it is very difficult, if not impossible, to access the unconscious or “inner mind.” The process of hypnosis creates the opportunity to tap into hidden strengths which we all possess. Through hypnosis one can make truly positive changes in our emotional, cognitive (thinking), physical and behavioral states. 

How can hypnosis help?

Many physical and emotional challenges can be helped greatly through hypnosis, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Acute or recurrent pain (e.g migraine)
  • Tics and Tourette Disorder
  • Bed-wetting
  • Habit Disorders (e.g. nail biting, thumb sucking, habit cough)
  • Warts
  • Fears and phobias
  • Sleep problems (e.g. nightmares, sleep walking, insomnia)
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • And many other physical or psychological challenges.  


Common Misconceptions

Hypnosis is a state of sleep

During hypnosis one is fully awake and aware of their surroundings.

Hypnosis is a “magical“ process

 Hypnosis is neither mysterious not magical (as it is often portrayed in cartoons and movies). 

The client is under the “control” of the hypnothearapist

Clients actually experience greater mastery and control as they learn self-hypnosis; hypnosis is NOT a form of “mind control”.
