Our Clinicians

Dr Michael Goldblatt

Medical Director

BMBS, FANZCA, Dip Clin Hypnosis, ASH,ASPM

I obtained my medical degree from the Flinders University of South Australia in 1988 and completed my specialist anaesthetic training in 1999. Throughout this time I gained a large amount of medical and valuable life experience working in Australia and overseas including time in rural Australia.

As a specialist anaesthetist I was introduced to hypnosis after a family member was successfully treated for severe anxiety. Curious and wanting to learn more about how hypnosis could help people attain their full potential, I obtained a Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis and trained with leading hypnotherapists in Australia and overseas.

I lecture in hypnotherapy and have taught hypnosis in Australia and internationally. In addition to my medical affiliations I am a Board Member of the South Australian Society of Hypnosis and examine candidates for the Australian Society of Hypnosis Diploma qualification which is a highly regarded qualification in Hypnosis for practitioners registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). As well as having AHPRA registration as a specialist anaesthetist, I am a member of the Australian Society of Psychological Medicine.

In founding Glo Clinical Hypnosis (alongside Dr. Aparna Lockie) I am excited by the opportunity to work with you in a highly professional and ethical practice to help you create the life you choose.

Dr Aparna Lockie

Medical Director

BSc, MSc, MD, FRACGP, Dip Clin Hypnosis, ASH, ASPM

After graduating in 1998 with a Doctor of Medicine in the USA, I have built over twenty years’ clinical experience in general medicine, practising internationally in USA, UK, Canada and Australia. My post-graduate qualifications include: US Board Certification in Internal Medicine at University of Illinois, Chicago, Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) and Canadian College of Family Practitioners (CCFP). I also have accredited training in Clinical Hypnosis through the South Australian Society of Hypnosis and continue to be a member of the Australian Society of Psychological Medicine.

In addition to my role with Glo Clinical Hypnosis (Co-Medical Director and Clinical Hypnotist), I work as a general practitioner in Adelaide, South Australia and have additional training in women’s health, emergency medicine, palliative care and mental health.

Fuelled by my diverse medical knowledge, experience, and by my dedication to holistic healing, I use hypnosis in conjunction with focussed psychological strategies (such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) as a means of helping people achieve rapid, positive and enduring change. (CBT is a practical, task-based approach to help change negative thoughts and behaviours by providing more positive and fulfilling solutions).

It is incredibly gratifying when I am able to guide my patients towards improving mental, physical and existential health. I look forward to the potential of working with you to create new possibilities.

BN (Hons), MACN, Dip Clin Hypnosis, ASH

I graduated from Flinders University of South Australia with a Bachelor of Nursing in 2011, achieving First Class Honours. During my career as a Registered Nurse, I have enjoyed the privilege of caring for adults and children when they are at their most vulnerable, including birthing mothers and people at the end of their life. I am passionate about caring for the whole person – body, mind and spirit, helping them to feel safe and have a voice in their care.

It was this desire to provide person-centred care, to facilitate each person’s journey to physical and mental health and wellbeing that inspired me to broaden my skillset and explore non-pharmacological ways of helping patients feel safe, calm and comfortable during their time in my care, and hypnosis fit that brief beautifully. I completed the accredited Diploma of Clinical Hypnosis course and have trained both in Australia and overseas with several highly respected master hypnosis practitioners. I hold a current AHPRA Registered Nursing registration and am a current board member of the South Australian Society of Hypnosis.

It is my heartfelt desire to help each person understand the power they have within to create the life that they want for themselves. It would be my privilege to help you to take control, make whatever changes you desire and achieve a heightened and ever improving sense of wellbeing in your life.
