Freedman took over the Reds towards the back end of last season, and the side's results rather petered out under his leadership after an encouraging start.
However, after a summer of change, Forest appear to have improved and Wilson says that he is enjoying working under the Scottish boss.
"We do feel as though things are coming together for us,” the defender said. “The gaffer has really stamped his authority on the team.
“He is clear in what he wants from us and I think he is getting what he wants from us. It is working. He wants to stamp his influence on the team and he has done a great job."
Forest had to work under restrictions during the transfer window, due to the transfer embargo placed upon them, but they still managed to freshen up their ranks.
A number of players were snapped up by the Midlands outfit, while Freedman also had a clear out of many of Forest's under-performing stars.
And the transformation of the team appears to have paid dividends, with Forest's latest displays offering their supporters and players a lot of encouragement.
The Reds have beaten Queens Park Rangers and Birmingham City in recent matches and although they lost to Middlesbrough in their most recent outing, their performance was still one which highlighted the improvements that have been made.
