About Me


My name is Michael Pattinson.

I’ve been hypnotising people for the past 10 years. Helping people from Melbourne (and other parts of Australia & the world via Zoom) to stop smoking, quit/reduce alcohol, lose weight, deal with anxiety, and help with confidence. I absolutely love my job.


I grew up in Peru and moved here 30 years ago. I speak Spanish.

My First Introduction to Hypnosis

I was first introduced to hypnotherapy as a concept when I went to a hypnotherapist myself to quit smoking 15 years ago.

I did not believe for a second that it was going to help me quit smoking.

But it did. I quit smoking. And I couldn’t believe it.

I read every book on hypnosis and hypnotherapy that I could find. I wanted to learn as much as I could and ended up enrolling in at the time was Victoria’s only Government recognized trainer of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy: The Academy of Hypnotic Science. 

I have since studied under Dr Gordon Emmerson, founder of Ego State Therapy, and Honorary Fellow of Victoria University’s School of Psychology.

I am a professional member of The Australian Hypnotherapist’s Association (The AHA). The AHA is Australia’s most prominent and oldest professional hypnotherapy association.

Melbourne Life

I am the proud partner and parent of 2 twin boys. My partner really dislikes the fact that I constantly leave my hypnosis books around the house. I love Melbourne, there is simply no other city like it in the world.


I love introducing hypnosis and it’s ability to bring great relief. If you would like to book an appointment, please visit the main page of my hypnosis website, it has all the details.
