People told me this would not work – I’m too hard headed. But I did want to quit and I went on with he sessions. I have not smoked and I feel better. You can too. This will work!!! read more

Tory R. from Eden Prairie

Wow, I’m so impressed with how good Linda is! I came in to see if I can become an even higher performer in many areas of life and our first session was amazing. Hypnosis should be considered more of a first treatment, not a last resort! read more

Jen from Eden Prairie

I had been searching high and low for help with a particular issue that I had struggled with my entire life. Solutions I had found in the past worked for a short while, and then they would stop working. I found Linda and FARE Hypnosis on a whim and walked in with a completely open mind. I trusted her, and her work, from the minute I met her. She was warm and nurturing yet very eager to get to the bottom of what was plaguing me. She has a no nonsense approach to helping and I walked away from each session feeling like a door, leading to a happier, lighter, and less stressed me, was opening. I just finished me last session with Linda and I know that I am leaps and bounds from where I started. Honestly, I am a completely different person inside. I am so grateful for Linda’s positive and effective work. Thank you for all of your help. You have truly been a blessing in my life and have taught me tools that I will have in my toolbox for ever. I am proud of the work I have done and I owe it all to your guidance. – Jen read more

Mike P. from Minneapolis

I looked into FARE Hypnosis as a way for me to quit smoking. I researched them and read all of the positive reviews. After all of this I made the decision to call and schedule a consultation with Linda. The consultation went very well and I decided to move forward with the hypnosis process and to my own amazement my last cigarette was 5 minutes before my first visit with Linda. I haven’t smoked since. She is simply the best! I would recommend FARE Hypnosis to anyone that wants  to quit smoking. It has been a weeks since I quite and with no cravings and no excuses to have another smoke for as long as I live. Thank you very much, Linda! read more

Kelly H. from Chaska

Annie C from Prior Lake

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. read more

Glen B from Edina

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. read more

Vicki F. from Eden Prairie

Working with Roberta has been an experience I will hold onto for the rest of my life. First of all, I had my own idea about what she does – but I quickly learned with her gentle and thorough education, that it was nothing like I had known. The problem I thought I had was not the problem, but a HUGE symptom of the real issue. And Roberta got to the cause! She stayed focused on me each step of my journey. I am absolutely free from issues that I had held onto most of my life that I dragged around like cement. Working with her was such a blessing and I suggest everyone to contact FARE Hypnosis Center to learn how you can be helped live your best life! As a side note, her office is spectacular! Super clean, calming, and all around positive energy. Thank you Roberta!! read more

Steve W. from Eden Prairie

Dan H. from Newport

After an assault nearly forty years ago, I had been suffering with chronic daily migraines and severe headaches.

Bern F. from Chanhassen

I was a bit skeptical about this process at first, even thought a trusted family member recommended it.

Thank you, Linda! read more

Dennis from Minnetonka

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 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.”     read more

Paula H. from Minneapolis

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. read more

Rosemary J. from Carver

Jaime K. from Minneapolis

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!

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. read more

Victoria J from Tampa

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. read more

Lynne K. from Chanhassen

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. read more

Molly M. from California

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. read more

Tracy B. from Eden Prairie

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! read more

Stella I. from Florida

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. read more

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!!! read more

Angie G. from Victoria

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. read more

Alan J. from Waconia

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. read more

Marcy S. from Plymouth

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.” read more

John P. From Eden Prairie

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. read more

Kimberly R. from Carver County

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.

So THANK YOU:) … This meeting really seemed to to touch so many. read more

Maggie G. from Orono

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! read more

Fred and Marcy S. From Plymouth

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. read more

Keely S. from Burnsville

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. read more
