I came to FARE Hypnosis Center desperate to quit smoking. I had tried the usual cessation aids, patches, gum, prescriptions medications, and nothing worked for me. I felt trapped. I had a friend tell me that she quit through hypnosis. I figured that I had tried everything else, what’s there to lose? Well, there was nothing to lose and so much gain, more than I had ever dreamed of. Long story short, I am now one month smoke free and will be a non-smoker the rest of my life. My life has done a complete 180 throughout my hypnosis journey. I am now enrolled in college and have a new take on life altogether. Linda guided me to the path that I always wanted to be on; I just needed some help finding my way back. I am so happy I decided on hypnosis and would highly recommend it to people who may feel lost or unable to overcome something in their life. There is hope.
I feel more in tune with myself, my emotions, and have the ability to decipher the truth from the untruths I’ve had about myself and my self worth than I have ever experienced before. I feel changed from the inside out. Thanks you for your guidance in helping me find my path.
It’s hard to overstate what I feel I’ve gotten from hypnosis. Simply, it has changed my life and I will use the tools I’ve learned here in the process of being more me. For the first time in 40 years I can recognize emotions other than anger, anxious and stressed.
When I came in I didn’t know what was in store for me. I had pain from my face, jaw, neck and radiated down my body. Linda helped me get in touch with my subconscious and deal with what was causing my pain. My pain, which at the time was a 10, has now diminished 85-90%. My wife notices I’m less irritable and I’m able to do things and enjoy things I haven’t done for over a year without focusing on the pain. Most important, I’ve dealt with and reconciled in my head where this pain has come from. Linda is great and I really recommend FARE Hypnosis.
If I were to describe my experience with Linda and the FARE process in a word, it would be transformational! In a matter of a relatively few number of sessions, I gained a better understanding of pst events in my life and their impact on my development into adulthood. I gained a sense of inner peace and awareness of critical milestones along my journey through the process.
I have loved going through this process with you! I came to you for weight loss assistance but you have given me so much more. Thank you for your time, patience and encouragement!
Linda was amazing! She truly cares about your well-being and puts you at ease immediately. Working with Linda has given me the tools to successfully achieve my goals. Thank you so much, this was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone.
The best thing I did when I was planning for my left knee replacement surgery was to consult with Roberta about hypnosis.
Roberta is a true professional. She is kind, inviting, and really cares about her clients. And, much to my skepticism – this has helped immensely! I have already referred friends + family. Thanks!
The experience through FARE Hypnosis was enlightening. Linda was able to guide me to answers about myself that have plagued me for many years. I would definitely recommend hypnosis to anyone searching for personal emotional behavior and questions surrounding that behavior. Hypnosis has significantly impacted my life for the positive and given long sought-after peace. Thank you, Linda!
After an assault nearly forty years ago, I had been suffering with chronic daily migraines and severe headaches. Other than powerful drugs, doctors and pain specialists had no workable solutions for me and they basically told me to ‘live with it’. Finally fed up, I sought out the help of Roberta and FARE Hypnosis.
Roberta, I got my ACT score back a few weeks ago and my reading score went up 11 points. I started with a 21 and got a 32 on this last test. I never thought my score could go up that much! Thank you for Everything!
I had been suffering from moderately severe pain for about 20 years from a very rare from of cervical dystonia. I had seen 3 neurologists, including one at Mayo. They prescribed a number of medications, but to little avail. After 6 sessions with Linda my condition is 80-90% improved. I would highly recommend The FARE Hypnosis Center to anyone with chronic pain. I expect I will continue to improve as I practice the hypnosis tools I have learned.
Linda was great at putting me at ease as to what was going to happen and what to expect. It made 40+ years of smoking easier to let go of. It’s been 6 weeks no and no desire to return to my habit.
This process has helped me so much in my personal and professional life. I was able to let go of my past fears and see how they’ve been affecting me. Linda was very professional and caring, but also happy to answer any questions regarding hypnosis. This will affect all areas of your life and is your best gift to yourself.
I had 6 sessions with Linda.From the first session I started to feel more relaxed and centered. We had worked on several of my negative and not so helpful beliefs. Session after session I felt lighter and lighter. Also the hypnosis sessions helped me to routinely do self-hypnosis at home so I can resolve more beliefs/situations when I need it. Hypnosis helped me know myself better, to me more willing to look at my feelings when challenges come.
This has been a good experience. I’ve been able to let go of bad, negative feelings about myself. I’ve learned techniques to use to build my self worth. I am feeling better about myself and taking better care of me. I would recommend hypnosis.
I feel these sessions have been most helpful – getting rid of the anger, the best!
I have suffered from fibromyalgia for twenty years. I am now off all medication and use self-hypnosis to manage my pain. No more afternoon naps and no more pain. I’m in control of my life again! Thanks, Roberta, for your care, love and understanding. Your special qualities make it possible for so may to heal. You are amazing!
Roberta, We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful presentation you gave for our members. Having experts, as yourself, share your time and talents has made our meeting a success! We sincerely thank you! The Board and members of the Minnesota Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation
This journey has been a life-changing journey. Hypnosis has allowed me to see the real me and give me my life back. I have been able to deal with my emotional and physical trauma through simple yet powerful techniques. I went into this journey wanting and willing to make the positive changes needed in my life. I am a happier, more confident woman, mother, wife, daughter, employee, sister, and so much more. Thanks to Linda and FARE Hypnosis for guiding me to the best me there is!
To very special Linda, I wish everyone could have the experience I’ve had. I don’t have the words to truly get my feelings out. But you, and what you do, are so very amazing. You took me back 66 years. That day will be with me for the rest of my life.I will never forget what I’ve learned and I would recommend FARE Hypnosis to everyone. You will always be in my heart. Than you for everything… With love, Nadine
I am very pleased with my first experience with hypnosis with Linda. I got a lot out our sessions and will use my new tools and understanding of my situation, my reason for coming, to help me every day. It gave me confidence and empowered me to make some needed changes in my life.
I was a little nervous when I came in the first time, but Linda quickly put me at ease. I love her sense of humor. There was never a right or wrong answer. I’m coming away with more love and appreciation of myself. You did a super job, Linda! Who knows, I might be back for a refresher course.
Roberta, Thank you for all of your care and coaching in my journey to be a calmer, more confident “me”. I can see changes in myself and it’s because of you and our work together. I’ll continue to think of and feel so much gratitude for you as I continue on this path.
What a journey this process has given me. I started out wanting to lose weight and ended up clearing years of baggage. I feel l lighter in body, mind, and spirit. Take control of your life to become your real self.
FARE has been my first exposure to hypnosis. It was recommended by my Allina physician to help with my insomnia. My experience and my results at FARE have been terrific! The process of hypnosis was explained thoroughly and I have been given step-by-step tools to use on my own. Together with the sessions in-office, I have made excellent progress with my insomnia.In short, my experience at FARE Hypnosis exceeded my expectations.
My session at The FARE Hypnosis Center were more than I expected because they addressed the underlying issues that contributed to the issues that I came in for. Linda is so empathetic and easy to trust. Nothing was uncomfortable or mysterious.My issue has already improved and I am very hopeful that it will continue to improved resolve. I definitely recommend it.
The FARE Hypnosis Center helped me overcome fear and stay focused in my golf game. The provided great service and a professional atmosphere. While somewhat skeptical, I found the process empowering and helpful.
“I have tried many diets over the years in my quest to obtain a healthy weight, so I know a lot about what I should and should not be eating. My problem was I used food to address my emotions, both positive and negative. Hypnosis with Linda helped me to disconnect food from the emotional support I was seeking which has put me on a solid path towards a healthy weight.”
Absolutely beyond grateful for my experience at Fare Hypnosis Center. Linda helped me when I was at wits ends with my inability to quit smoking. She helped me break the cycle by breaking down my conscious barrier to see what was at the root of my smoking addiction. I tried everything before this, literally everything. I have now gone 71 days without smoking a cig! I haven’t even craved one. Honestly, it’s hard to even believe I was ever a smoker in the first place. Seems far fetched, I know.. but it’s the truth. She also helped me work on my anxiety.. it was an emotional journey to say the least. Linda made me more than comfortable to talk to her about things that I hadn’t had the guts to face on myself. Learning self hypnosis during my last session has kept me on the right path since graduating from Linda’s helping hands. I truly couldn’t be more grateful for all the help she has given me.
With the professional and compassionate guidance of Linda Schutz, I have gained much peace and contentment in my daily life. Linda led me in safely drawing out and confronting hidden issues which needed resolution. This experience has strengthened my confidence and self-control – and freed me from invisible binds that had limited my joy in living for many years. If you are seeking a caring and skilled professional to assist you in gaining positive control of an issue in your life, I sincerely recommend working with the gifted and talented Linda. Life is better now!
Wow!! Talk about over delivering and great customer service. Here is my story- I attended what I thought to be a self hypnosis class on better sleep. I walked in and quickly realized my source for this class had listed the wrong date. As I pondered what to do in the empty office, the decor and the inviting atmosphere pulled me to stay.
Linda, one of the Hypnotists was just finishing with a client and was generous enough to take the time and spend a good amount of it helping me. She even went as far as teaching me some of the techniques to help me with my issue. I did not expect or feel this was her obligation. She did it without hesitation.
I left feeling hopeful and excited to try the new techniques. I also left feeling the amazing service provided has me excited to visit again soon. Thank you Roberta for partnering with such awesome people like Linda. She was amazing.
It was truly a remarkable experience. Thank you!
Thank you, Linda! You helped me rediscover myself and gain back y confidence that I had lost. The positive self image and belief in myself has changed my life and set me free from my old fears. I cannot thank you enough!
I just wanted to let you know that I am 5 months chew free. I don’t think I could have stuck with it without your help. I didn’t know what to expect, but hypnosis really helped me be accountable to myself. THANK YOU!
Roberta is amazing! I was so very impressed with the amount of dedication and professionalism that Roberta puts into this program. Thorough instruction, lots of dialogue and practice makes this training program so successful.
I had my first session yesterday and still feel relaxed and at ease. My anxiety is definitely lower, I am excited to continue to feel this way!
I’d wondered for some time about using hypnosis for stress management. The results for me have been, quite honestly, profound. My blood pressure dropped into a healthy range for the first time in over a year. This is a new tool for me in taking accountability for my own health and my own well being. I’ve also referred Roberta to my mother, 89. Hypnosis has given her a sense of hope and a feeling of being involved. She’s no longer accepting of the idea that there’s nothing left for her to do about her pain issues.
I am so impressed with Roberta… as a newbie, she helped me feel at ease and thoroughly explained what I could expect and answered all my questions. She me feel so at ease and was extremely professional. Can’t wait for my next session with her!
I finally was able to relax after all my anxiety. It was the best thing I could’ve experienced. I will be going back to work on other issues. She’s the best!!
Roberta worked with me through FaceTime since we were geographically and physically separated by over 1500 miles. I was preparing for life changing major surgery and looking for assistance dealing with the emotional aspect of the situation. Roberta provided me with the tools I needed to have full confidence before entering the OR. I was calm and visualized the best possible outcome of the anesthesia and bi-lateral mastectomy. I felt very little discomfort and took no pain medication. My doctors were amazed by my calmness and strength. I truly believe the outcome was a result of the relaxation hypnosis I learned through Roberta’s efforts. I can see how this same process will help people with many different needs from those with food addictions to those who find it difficult to cope with life’s trials.
I had a hypnosis session with Roberta that was truly transformational. First, she took the time to really hear my concerns and get to know me so that she would know how to best proceed with me and apply the most effective approach for my needs. Second, she carefully explained how the process works so I could learn to be a better friend to myself in the future and break negative unconscious habits. On top of all that, her voice is incredibly soothing and comforting, so it was easy to relax and experience the session deeply. But, most of all, I would have to say that Roberta has integrity and is a trustworthy practitioner in the Hypnotism field. I knew immediately that I was in capable and conscientious hands so the healing I experienced was very effective and touched me at the core of my concerns. I am so grateful to have met her and very impressed with the work she does. She is in this field to help people so her heart is in the right place and she has the experience and training to be truly effective in her work.
Roberta transformed my life. Even as she was first speaking to me, during my first smoking cessation sessions, I was doubting my ability and willingness to quit. Her voice seemed to echo gently through me and by means I far from expected, she brought me to a place where the thought of putting a cigarette to my lips ever again is laughable. I could cry in gratitude. I really never thought it would work, or that I could actually become a non-smoker, but here I am, successfully free of tobacco and more empowered by it every day. Thank you so much, Roberta for saying yes to me, and thank you for giving me control of my life back.
I walked in not knowing a thing about hypnosis, other than what I have seen on TV or at entertainment shows. Roberta took the time to explain the history, the benefits, and what to expect. She is a very warm and caring person which makes the experience even more comfortable and enjoyable. She made me feel at ease the entire time I was there. I left feeling completely renewed, energized, and peaceful. I would highly recommend anyone to Roberta. Thank you again!
I was having anxiety, having trouble getting sleep and focusing in my work after going through a humiliating experience. Roberta gave me the link to download her Personal Relaxation Session. I was amazed after listening a couple of times because I was able to get an uninterrupted sleep for the first time. I downloaded the session on my phone so anytime I start having anxiety while at work,I will take a break and start her session in the privacy of my office. It helped me a lot to be able to have a clear mind and relaxed body when I am around people. I would have the session at least twice a day for two weeks and it did not take long for me to ease my anxiety. I also had a telephone session with Roberta for at least 1 hour and after that I had the most wonderful feeling of letting go of all my heavy burden and cleaning the cobwebs in my mind. I felt my emptiness getting filled with self confidence,trust and full of hope. I am empowered to feel great.
Roberta has amazing abilities at helping you relax! Definitely give her a call if you need help relaxing or with any sort of ailment, mental or physical!!
As a small business owner, with some key intentions for 2015, it is critical to release anything that could prevent those intentions from unfolding. Since working with Roberta, who is the consummate professional, there is a drastically reduced level of fear, stronger intuition, and greater joy. Her warmth and compassion are extraordinary. As an individual who has been very skeptical about hypnosis, it has completely changed my perception. Thank you, Roberta!!!
As a small business owner and a parent, time and energy are much need resources to maintain a calm demeanor. After my first session with Roberta, I was amazed at how mellow I felt that evening when my toddler was “testing our patience”. As parents, we never want to reach the breaking point but with Roberta’s help, the interaction when children are discovering their boundaries can be astronomically beneficial. No matter where you are in life, if one of your goals is to be less stressed, maintain a positive outlook and just be happier, definitely check out what she has to offer.
I was so impressed with Roberta’s expertise and professionalism. She made me feel immediately at ease. I learned a great relaxation technique I can use any time on my own. I can’t wait to go back!
First time hypnosis session and it went better than expected! I truly enjoyed the relaxation I felt and I felt very comfortable with Roberta. I walked out with the true happiness. Thank you.
I wanted to revive my memories surrounding my wedding day. My recollections are spotty at best. I was curious, and nervous, wondering whether I would allow myself to be hypnotized. Roberta reassured me that I was in complete control but that I would need to follow her instructions completely. Roberta helped me relive my wedding day. I wanted to see my mother again, thirty years younger. Although my memories were not crystal clear like a photograph, Roberta helped me to feel the love and joy that I felt that day. I had a recollection of hugging my mother and father thanking them for everything that they had done for me. At that point I felt like I was glowing with happiness. Thank you Roberta for helping me re-live that day.
Roberta was professional, listened close, never criticized and was very encouraging. Being hypnotized is truly exciting and relaxing. Roberta has the most soothing, comforting and calming voice. She had wonderful suggestions that helped me deal with my concerns. No matter what stress or problems you have, I feel Roberta is the one to help guide you. Roberta does not do the work for you. She gently guides you through your concerns and you find the right answers for yourself. Over 4-5 sessions I did the homework Roberta gave me. Roberta showed me where to look for my answers but didn’t tell me what to see. I changed my attitude about many things, and “turned myself around”. I felt like a totally improved person. Friends even noticed the change. For the first time in my 69 years, I discovered my purpose, and that I love life. Most of all, I love myself !!! There is a purpose for everyone we meet. I feel Roberta guided me so I could bring out the best in myself. She helped me see that I posses the skills to discover my own greatness. Roberta gave me the time I needed, until I found what I needed to discover for myself. Her patience level is high and she is very good at what she does.I had foot surgery and Roberta had great advice for me to deal with pain etc. She taught me self-hypnosis which helped during the 7 week recovery. When the Doctor pulled the 3 pins out of my toes, he was surprised I did not feel pain and it did not bleed. I am highly impressed with the work Roberta does. I truly admire her and would absolutely recommend her to everyone.”
Roberta is a gift – a master practitioner who so clearly loves people and wants them to have the lives they choose. If you have not experienced hypnosis, try it. It will be transformational. In my first session, I felt like I had the best night’s sleep of my life, relaxed, calm and also energized. After that we began working on an area of my life where I didn’t feel fully in control or fully expressed and with Roberta’s guidance, I am beginning to own that transformation. If you have something you want to work on, don’t hesitate to visit Roberta.
Omg… The feedback was amazing!!! People loved you! One women was in tears saying how this meeting spoke to her so directly she thinks it was life changing. At my school you were what people were talking about, and they were asking each other if they practiced their breathing today yet. So THANK YOU:) … This meeting really seemed to to touch so many.
I had Hypnotic Gastric Band Surgery and it couldn’t be easier! Not only was I educated about healthy eating, but I also found out what’s eating me inside was contributing to my being overweight. Emotional eating has been the cause of my gaining 50+ pounds in the last thirty years! After figuring out who/what was causing me distress/stress, I changed my thinking/attitude and am now much happier with not only my weight loss (15 pounds so far), but am feeling so much lighter. I now eat only a cup of food 4-5 times a day. It’s been painless and it feels so good to lose weight, wear clothing that fits and watching the muffin top disappear. Thank you Roberta for your insight, knowledge, wisdom and friendship through this eight week journey. It has been the best “trip” I’ve ever been on and I can hardly wait to finish!
WOW! What an awesome experience this class (Hypnotic Gastric Band) has been for both of us. We learned a lot about ourselves and why we have gained weight. One of the many things we learned is how to get rid of the ‘distractors’ that are enabling us. Once we did the work ‘inside’ our weight started coming off. We now have the ‘tools’ Roberta taught us and we will continue to get rid of the excess weight. We have changed several things that have contributed to our weight gain and we now have the good habits to help us lose weight and keep it off. Roberta is truly a remarkable hypnotist and teacher. It is a real joy to work with her.
I am a young individual who has struggled with weight for a few years. I struggled with a lot of emotions and had fallen into a rut. I, like many, had tried many different things that were out on the market. None of which worked or only worked for a short time. The Hypnotic Gastric Band class allowed me to break down my habits and find an alternate change. I realized while in the class that a majority of my bad habits blossomed from stress and the feeling of inadequacy. I went into this with knowledge of every healthy step that you “should” do. However, the hypnosis was that little boost you need. It’s that “ah ha!” moment. During the 7 week duration I lost a total of 23 pounds. I have a long way to go still and will continue my journey using the techniques that Roberta taught us. I will also be seeing Roberta in the future as I have a long way to go and it never hurts to have that reassurance on your side. I would highly recommend Roberta to anyone who has been struggling with any issue. This class has been a huge help and has given me the tools to move forward and reach the goals I have set out.
Linda is wonderful and has helped me a great deal with many issues. I hope to come back in the future if the need arises!
Linda provided me with the tools to applying positive thoughts to enable myself to support and focus on my goals. Her meditative guidance makes you feel confident and comfortable. I’m on my way to reaching new heights from her expertise.
Roberta has changed my life! Hypnosis has been transformational in all aspects of my life. I’m happier, calmer, healthier and overall more in tune with my emotions and how to deal with them. The awareness of my past experiences and how they have impacted my life has been astonishing. I can now understand why I do or have done the things I do or have done. What a great insight to improve my life! What a great experience!
