Hypnotist Biography
Mike was fascinated by the subconscious mind at a very early age. The reading of many books on the subject throughout his life has led to his eventual training as a Certified Hypnotist.  He received his formal training from the largest and most prestigious training organization of its kind: The National Guild of Hypnotists (N.G.H.). Constantly upgrading his knowledge and skills is his passion.
Mike comes from a 40-year entrepreneurial background. Being results-focused is an absolute necessity to succeed in a competitive marketplace.  The marketplace can be cruel if you don’t keep up with trends, and this is especially true if you don’t deliver on your promises. Mike’s dogged determination to get the best results for his clients is a philosophy that he brings with enthusiasm to his Smoking Cessation Clinic.
At age 65, when most people his age are slowing down, Mike is fully engaged in auto-didactic studies.  Topics of interest are; the subconscious mind, hypnosis science, the quantum physics of consciousness, neuroplasticity, the placebo effect, positive psychology, stress management, and much more.  He is writing a book related to stress management, to be released in 2020.
