Hello! I’m Michael
I’ve always believed that you have the answers you seek! You’re the expert in your own mind and life. I’m here to guide, challenge, and explore with you to discover your inner potential. I work with you to grow your own inner advisor that you trust! As your inner advisor grows you can develop, cultivate, and grow your most cherished life.
The last of the human freedoms: to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” V. Frankl
We know we cannot change the world, but we can change how we operate and feel in the world! This is a game changer! This is where our empowerment lies.
As soon as we start working together, a major obstacle is already taken care of; hope. It takes hope to reach out; hope to believe change is possible; hope that you too can experience relief and hope for a better life. From this place of hope, we’ll explore together what it truly means to lean into the discomfort, hug our inner monster and discover where transformation is possible.
“No matter how difficult the past, you can always begin again today” Jack Kornfield
We spend so much of life avoiding pain, living with increasing anxiety and depression but with guidance and support we can embrace the struggle and work to achieve a cherished life!
We work together to strengthen the skills and abilities you already have and get them working for you! There’s a wealth of resilience within you which we can mine together. It will help you achieve your goals, not just for now, but for the rest of your life!

I‘m an avid learner and am currently completing training in Mastery Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy. As a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I’ve discovered hypnosis to be tranformative in the lives of people like you and also for myself! I love how it allows me to address the core challenges of both conscious and unconscious issues! I’m passionate about moving out of places of shame and freeing myself, and other’s, from it’s limiting effects on the self so we can create the emotional life we deserve.
Through my own inner work I’ve grown to appreciate the challenge to lean into the discomfort and embrace an honesty that may be painful at first, but is the path to inner freedom! Aside from learning and growing, I’m a dog lover, adventurer and lover of life!
One more thing….
In my 15 years working with young people, I’ve discovered how to effectively utilize our greatest asset in therapy, imagination! I can help you become your own superhero no matter your struggle! We are all naturally resilient and I work with your strength to help you foster courage and independence to live life fully. “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” A. Einstein
