I'm not sure what your friend is troubled by, and their best bet would be to see a good local psychiatrist or psychologist for a proper assessment, and then, based on that, a discussion of what is worrying them.
Hypnagogic hallucinations ( and Hympopompic hallucinations )which are seeing odd things just as one is dropping off to sleep or just as one is waking up are normal, safe, and not at all sinister. Not very common, but more common than most people think. Usually one is puzzled by them rather than frightened - why do you think it might be dangerou, and why do you feel afraid ?
