"She has the Heart of a Healer" 

(Mary Lopez, Occupational Therapist in Maryland)



Welcome to the Wise Self Hypnotherapy!


Hi, my name is Fanny!

          I am a Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT) with a multicultural background who is passionate about helping you to create long-lasting changes in your life! I come from Switzerland, where I was a social worker, and spent many years living in Mexico.

          As a social worker, I developed my keen ability to connect with clients empathetically and to calmly guide them through even complex situations to discover their self-worth, inner resources, and potentials. I am a firm believer in treating the "whole" person and compassionately guide my clients to look for holistic solutions that take into account the many different aspects of their lives.

         In Mexico, I managed hypnotherapy workshops focused on empowerment, resilience, and self-esteem for women victims of domestic violence. I received my Masters degree with honors for this work.  During my time in Mexico, I also taught Hypnosis at the Centro Ericksoniano de Mexico.

         “Your mind creates the world” is a statement, about which I have been thinking for many years. It is a very simple statement, but my readings, training, and multicultural experiences have helped me to grasp how important is the way we think about ourselves, and how we create our realities according to our cultural, familiar, and personal mindsets. Just as importantly, we may become aware of our mindsets and change them.

       I was trained by Randal Churchill in the world-renowed Hypnotherapy Training Institute (, and Teresa Robles, one of the most influent current hypnotherapist in Latin America. I am trained in both traditional and ericksonian modalities of hypnosis. I am also certified by the The Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy of Boston (

       I am deeply committed to continually learning the latest and most effective strategies in the field of hypnotherapy. I participate regularly in training seminars and webinars.
I am a member of the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners (ACHE), and the International Society of Hypnosis (ISH).



        Seeking ways to help you heal from deep within is
a life-long passion, and my commitment is to help you reach your goals in the shortest possible time. I am passionate about improving human relationships, passionate about helping people, and passionate about helping you to transform your life and feel better about yourself!


I am fluent in English, Spanish, and French, and offers consultations in all three languages.
