ABOUT FREEDOM HYPNOSIS


My name is Craig Mackay. I started this practice to help people to realize their potential and reach their goals. I believe that often it is ourselves that stand in our way - often by self limiting beliefs regarding what we think we can and cannot accomplish.

I am a Certified Hypnotist (and Instructor) and a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists. I offer hypnosis sessions in the Astoria, Queens area of New York City or via Skype/phone. I am also a Certified Life Coach - certified by the International Association of Counselors & Therapists.

  • Hello Craig, I just wanted to tell you thanks so much for the help, knowledge and suggestions. I never tried a session of hypnosis and I am thrilled that I did. On the day I first met with you, following my first hypnosis session, I left your office feeling light, and ecstatic knowing that I can actually take a moment to relax and mentally go elsewhere, not worrying about the time or the stresses of that day. I am more aware and conscious of my day to day, whether it’s being present and not allowing myself to stress about the unknown or making the right food choices. Also, listening to the recordings you’ve provided from time to time, reinforces the goal I want to reach.

  • So trying hypnosis for the first time in my life I must say I was very fortunate to have come across Craig! He's great at what he does and is also very professional! Going into it I was a bit skeptical because what we see on tv just clouds our mind from the real to the fake. Craig is the real deal and I came out of that session in a great state of mind. It was a great experience! My advice to anyone that goes to Craig or to any hypnotist you must go into it with a open mind! Overall great experience will recommend Craig to anyone!

  • Craig’s terrific. He has a real gift for this sort of work, and I recommend him highly. After just a couple of sessions with him, I’ve had some powerful, tangible results. I’ve found him to be professional, nonjudgmental, and respectful of his clients’ personal philosophies and boundaries, but also insightful and intuitive. He’s a great listener, and he has a real passion for helping people. The great thing about working with Craig is that he really cares about his clients and puts a lot of time and energy into helping them achieve their goals. (And you will be working *with* him--he supplements your session with at-home exercises and offers you an mp3 of your session to use on your own.) He prepares extensively for sessions, and he uses an extensive intake process that lets him really get to know you, so he can tailor sessions around your particular needs and personality. After a session, he is conscientious about following up to troubleshoot for problems or complications and to further refine any future sessions.

  • Prior to my experience in hypnotherapy I was seeking an alternative in healing my life and finding peace within. I came across Freedom Hypnosis and it has been such a positive life-altering experience since. At Freedom Hypnosis, the techniques that were taught and given to me to stay in the present has greatly improved my overall well-being, including my emotional and mental health. Working with Craig is a great and happy experience and I always look forward to every appointment. After every session, I leave feeling centered, confident and spiritually empowered. Craig is naturally gifted in his ability to have each individual recognize their potential for unlimited greatness as well as opening the path to your spiritual enlightenment. He is a positive and kind soul that genuinely cares for his clients improvements.

  • This was my first experience with hypnosis and I’m extremely happy with the results. I was initially nervous but Craig put me at ease and took his time speaking with me and customizing the session to my needs. I had two main intentions, I wanted to work on soothing and healing my hyperactive thyroid and I wanted to overcome my anxiety around money and fundraising. I was extremely relaxed during the hypnosis and enjoyed the visualizations Craig gave me. There were moments of pure bliss and other moments of deep relaxation—a level I have never experienced before. I left the session feeling elated and at peace with everything in my life. Weeks later I have bursts of insight and a steady pulsing confidence that people remark on almost daily. I’m no longer plagued by anxiety prior to meetings and all the symptoms of hyperthyroid have completely subsided. Fundraising is actually enjoyable now! It’s incredible! I am so grateful for this life changing experience!!

  • I went into my past life re​gression session with Craig knowing next to nothing about hypnosis. Craig was very professional and kind and he took the time to talk to me about hypnosis before the session and ease my worries (I was a little nervous). I was curious about past lives, but I had no idea what the experience would be like. It turned out to be like nothing else I’ve ever done in my life and I’m very glad that I went out on a limb and tried it. I left my session with Craig feeling happy, energized, and relaxed on a very deep level. I felt so incredible that I already knew I wanted to do it again. What I will always treasure from the session is the advice given to me from my past selves and the chance to experience the afterlife. I feel like this experience gave a lot of meaning to my current life and opened the world up to possibility again.

  • You are a GENIUS! I can’t tell you have impactful this last session has been. It has worked so so well in getting me out of despair, I think it’s magic! You really are very wise in what you do

  • wanted to quit smoking after 9 years of (smoking) addiction and all I'd tried before failed. Hypnosis is the only thing that's worked for me, but if I went to another location the results would have been different. Craig was very professional, he explained me all I needed to know about the treatment, I felt safe and relaxed in all sessions. Also It was not expensive and it was worth every single penny.
    Nuno C., New York
  • I had not had hypnosis before but it was recommended to me so i started looking for a hypnotist. I am very, very happy that I found Craig. He is a very nice person and you can see that he truly cares about you being comfortable and leaving with a great experience. He was very helpful scheduling an appointment, which was somewhat difficult because of my work schedule, and he was very accommodating. I felt very safe and he was very thorough with explaining the process and getting to know what i need to work on. The hypnosis itself was extremely relaxing and i can tell that over the last week i feel much better about certain things and more grounded so I am looking forward for the next session with him to work on other issues. Oh he also provides you with a recording of the session so that you can listen to it at home which is a great help.

  • Dear Craig, I wanted to touch base with you to tell you that I have not smoked for 38 days and counting! I can't thank you enough for that blessing! I am so happy!
