Biography: Nicol Merline MA, CHt.
After 10 years in downtown Milford, Nicol relocated to larger quarters in Walled Lake in 2009.
Formerly, a biology and math teacher for many years – I began conducting special courses in the
Livonia Public Schools on the principles of mind dynamics in the 70’s. Helping students resolve

I am also a board certified advanced hypnotherapist with a masters degree in educational leadership.
My certifications and specialties were earned through the National Guild of Hypnotists, the International Association of Counselors and

•mental training coaching to athletes
•virtual gastric band hypnotherapy
•complementary medical hypnotherapy

looked to MTU Hypnosis for sessions and seminars. Presentations have been given to hospitals, such as
the University of Michigan Hospital, DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital and North Oakland Hospital.
Nicol completed a 2011 study using the leading edge hypnotic technique known as “VGB”

In 2011, Healthy Life Centers inducted MTU Hypnosis into their Hall of Fame based on the
predominance of clients who quit smoking with MTU Hypnosis. Medical and dental professionals refer
clients on a regular basis to MTU Hypnosis for help in facilitating health and recovery for a variety of
issues. For assistance in optimizing athletic performance, both professional and amateur athletes look to
Nicol as well.
