I’ve been practising hypnosis and hypnotherapy in a clinical setting for more than 5 years. I initially studied hypnosis at Victoria’s only Government registered hypnotherapy training body, The Academy of Hypnotic Science. I’ve studied under world renowned Psychologist Dr Gordon Emmerson, founder of Ego State Therapy, and Honorary Fellow of Victoria University’s School of Psychology.
My partner Jill and our twin boys.
I’ve been a professional member of The Australian Hypnotherapist’s Association (The AHA), Australia’s oldest and most prominent Hypnotherapy Association. This membership requires that I undergo regular up to date training, and professional development. All this means really is that I didn’t just do a weekend course to practice hypnosis. Things I’m known for include public speaking hypnosis, and helping people with their particular anxieties.
I am a proud father of two twin boys and I have a beautiful partner who is sick of me leaving hypnosis and psychology books around the house. I am originally from Peru where my beautiful mother still resides.
I love Melbourne because it is my home. Full of good people, excellent coffee and a wonderful culture. I hope that in the next 10 years more and more people get to know evidence based hypnosis and it’s powerful potential in helping people move on and make positive changes to their lives.

“I found the treatment to be relaxing, meditative and relative to my needs and personal goals. Michael’s professional approach made for a comfortable environment. I felt totally relaxed.
Thank you Michael for a fantastic experience!” —Rebecca Mc
“Michael helped me greatly with deep seeded anger relating to early childhood traumatic experiences. I am so glad I contacted him. I think he is a wonderful human who is kind hearted, understanding and uses his abilities to help others. After just a few sessions with him my life is very different and I can’t thank him enough. But I hope sharing my experience is a small way to express my gratitude”. Jason R
