If you are a smoker, or are struggling with weight, addiction, stress, depression, or anxiety, I can help.

I have been helping folks with hypnosis for almost 20 years.

In-person sessions are friendly, comfortable, and straightforward.

Most people achieve what they want with just one session. Weight-loss sometimes requires two or three sessions.


No drama. No hocus-pocus. Just results.

Almost all of us are living with elevated levels of stress, anxiety and sometimes depression. Financial worries, feelings of isolation, and even feelings of helplessness and despair are common.


Men are sometimes reluctant to seek help. No problem. Hypnosis doesn't require you to talk much.

Francis Hypnosis provides a single-session therapeutic service for men, women, and children who are at least 9 years old, and who are struggling. If you are depressed, feeling lost, or self-isolating please consider booking a session. One session, either on the phone or in-person, is often enough to help get you back on-track and moving forward.


Hypnosis can be a very effective way to quit smoking.   It can work even if you have tried everything else and even if you have been smoking for decades.   When you quit with hypnosis, the side effects can be entirely positive and may not result in weight gain, cravings or crankiness.

For many people one session is enough to quit.  Each session lasts about 90 minutes.   If you don't quit, a follow-up session is no-charge for up to 30 days (60 days if you're from out of town).


You might be spending $4,000 or more each year to smoke.   One session with Francis Hypnosis may be all that you need to finally become smoke-free.


Hypnosis is an effective way to help you correct your relationship with food.   Usually only 2 or 3 hypnosis sessions are required to make the necessary changes and adjustments.    For clients who want to lose weight, with hypnosis you can expect to slim down in a comfortable and gentle way, and without any negative side effects.


Individuals who struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) may find significant relief with hypnosis and hypnotherapy.    I have helped many first responders, military personnel and others to reframe the way they view past traumatic events.  With several hypnosis treatments, many PTSD sufferers report a significant improvement in the quality of their day to day life.


Hypnosis has been used as an effective means to reduce and manage pain for more than 100 years. If you are living with chronic or recurring pain, including nerve pain, dental pain, fibromyalgia, hypnosis may help.

Hypnosis is not a medical treatment and it does not replace modern medicine.


Hypnosis treats the whole being, the whole person, and it is complementary to conventional medicine.   Hypnosis can help individuals with cancer to find a new and refreshing sense of peace, comfort and well-being.

Hypnosis is not a medical treatment and it does not replace modern medicine.


Hypnosis allows you to bring things to your conscious awareness that may have been buried in your subconscious mind. This is an effective way to deal with addiction, phobias, depression, anxiety and more.




As long as you are sober and have an open mind, you can be hypnotized. Therapeutic hypnosis is not like stage hypnosis.  It is not sleep, and it is not mind-control.


Hypnosis is a very natural way to connect with your deeper self and make corrections and refinements so you can overcome addiction, gently move through trauma or depression, and improve your life.


Many people achieve great results with just one session. For example, I have helped many clients who have smoked for decades to become comfortably smoke-free with just one session.

Other clients prefer to have multiple sessions. That is fine, too. I never pressure clients to book multiple sessions. It is up to you.


For smoking cessation, yes! If you come to see me to quit smoking and you don't quit after the first session, you can see me for a second session at no charge, provided the second session is within 30 days of the first one.

I don't guarantee other services since confirming the success of the hypnosis service would take weeks or months.


Yes.  For lots of people.

If you truly want to make a change for the better in your life, and if you are willing to take a couple of hours out of your day and invest a bit of money, then you're already there.

Whatever you're looking to achieve is possible.  And it will be my pleasure to help you along the way.




[SMOKING CESSATION] Hi Gordon. This is Joan. I had a session with you to stop smoking on January 12, 2020.  I wanted to let you know it's been three weeks and 2 days since I've been smoke-free and I feel amazing.  It's not just the smoking you helped; it's my entire well-being.  I want to thank you so much for what you've done.  I know if I ever feel like I need a tune-up, you'll be the first person I contact.  I've told many people about you and, if you ever require testimonials, feel free to contact me.  Once I finished crying over how happy I am, I could probably muster up a good one.  Have a wonderful week and thank you, again, for your amazing talent.

[ALCOHOL] Hi! Happy New Year Gord!  Reflecting on 2019 and I just wanted to send you another thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your help. I truly feel like a new person and truthfully haven't felt like this in years.  I have not touched a drop of alcohol since our session and I am now down 30 pounds.  I would not be in this position if it wasn't for your help.  Thank you again, your support has meant more to me than you will ever know.  All the best to you and your family for 2020.

[EATING ISSUES / SMOKING CESSATION] I absolutely feel amazing since my session on Saturday.  I have been raving to everyone and posting on my social media  about you - I have given out a few referrals so I hope that they contact you!  I think I mentioned when I saw you that Anna and I are good friends and we also work together.  (Anna quit smoking with you.)  We have both been deeply impacted by your treatment.

[SMOKING CESSATION] It has only been 2 months since I came to see you, but I know that I have quit smoking.   I can just tell.   I don't even think about it anymore, except after some activities and I think that is just a habit.   Thank you for everything!   I feel like new again!

[SMOKING CESSATION] When I was leaving your office after coming to see you I wasn't sure that it worked. That was more than 6 months ago and I haven't had a single smoke. I can barely believe it. It was so easy.  I have sent all my friends to see you.

[SMOKING CESSATION] Hello again, JS here. I hope you remember me. You hypnotized me 12 years ago to quit smoking. Still smoke free and probably one of the most important accomplishments in my life so far.

[EATING ISSUES / ANXIETY] Hi Gord! I just wanted to give you a small update because I’m just so impressed :)

It’s only been a week but it’s been a huge shift for me. My husband last night said to me (in a good way) who are you?! lol. I’ve cooked a healthy dinner every night and lunches have been a big improvement as well. I’ve also noticed some foods are starting to become more salty to me. I haven’t cooked a weeks worth of dinners in years. 

The biggest and best difference for me I noticed is that my anxiety and being overwhelmed around food and making meals has disappeared. I even planned a week of dinners and stuck to it and when the rails were falling off with cranky kids I still made the food. Usually I’d order pizza. 

So I just wanted to thank you again! I’m looking forward to more progress and will update you at a later date.
