Welcome to Rescript Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy
What is Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy?
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach that challenges and reshapes unhelpful beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors. Hypnotherapy takes you into a deep, relaxed trance state, so you can engage with your subconscious to discover how to best to overcome the obstacles in your path. Mindfulness training helps you better regulate your emotions, develop an attitude of non-judgmental acceptance, and become more present in the here and now. CBHypnotherapy combines these three modalities to help you break free from unhealthy mindsets and habits, so you can live a healthier, happier, more authentic and purposeful life. CBHynotherapy helps you access the wisest part of yourself, so you can become your own therapist and healer.
What we tell ourselves shapes how we think, feel, and behave. Dysfunctional self-talk holds us back from living as well and fully as we'd like to. Reframing unhelpful beliefs about the world, ourselves, and our struggles can improve our health, mood, work performance, and relationships. But it isn't blind optimism or false hope that we want, but what psychologist Martin Seligman calls "flexible optimism – optimism with its eyes open." CBT helps you develop this flexible optimism by overriding negative messages with positive ones.
Your imagination is one of your most powerful but underutilized resources for personal growth and problem solving. Non-ordinary states like hypnosis help you tap into the power of your subconscious to discover for yourself how you can live your best life, and find the most suitable ways to achieve your goals.

Michele Koh Morollo
We all have a wise, knowing self who wants us to experience more joy, peace, and love in our lives. Many of us however, are disconnected from this part of ourselves. My goal is to create a safe space and guide you to journey within, so you can activate your innate wisdom and compassion, and reconnect with this higher self.

How I Work
In my former career as a journalist and published fiction writer, I know that the stories we tell ourselves color how we relate to the world and to our loved ones. Using CBT, I’ll help you reappraise these stories in a confidential, emotionally safe, and intellectually stimulating context to discover creative solutions to the problems in your life. Using hypnosis to induce a non-ordinary state of consciousness, I’ll help you become more attuned to and engaged with your inner world, memories, imagination, and subconscious to achieve your therapeutic goals.
Where I Work
I am based in Portland, Oregon. I do not take insurance, and am presently only seeing clients on Zoom. I believe that finding the right therapist requires a little serendipity, and it’s important that we are a good fit. If you’d like to know if I'm right for you, email me at enquiry@rescript-cbhypnotherapy to schedule a 15-minute phone consultation.
Michele’ style was perfect for me. I felt completely at ease from the moment we met. Michele had the perfect combination of professionalism, empathy and EQ. She left me feeling reassured, excited and positive about how I would tackle my challenges, and she has gifted me with visualization and CBT tools that I can use for the rest of my life. Michele’s ability to seamlessly combine CBT with hypnotherapy was incredible. After just three sessions, I feel like a different and stronger person. – Sophie L.
I had a wonderful hypnotherapy session which helped me increase my focus and deal with my anxieties around studying. Michele guided me into a state of total relaxation, and as I was in that state, she gave me solutions that I could use in my everyday life to cope with my inability to concentrate and my fears around studying. I would highly recommend seeing Michele for anxiety-related issues. – KookHee A.
Michele really helped me to relax and see my issues around relationships and anxieties from a calm, neutral perspective. I've been in therapy before, but I found Michele so easy to talk to, and her approach was really well-educated, yet very empathetic to my individual needs. Hypnotherapy was new for me, but with her expert guidance, it seemed so easy, and I really gained strength and insight after each session. I'd recommend Michele to anyone interested in CB Hypnotherapy. – Vince T.
Michele’s sessions are thorough and goal-oriented. She helped me understand the root of my problem, and therapy with her made it easier for me to adopt better behaviours. She also has the most soothing voice! – Christine Y.
Michele helped me with my primary goal of coping with chronic insomnia. She gave me exercises I could practice on my own, which helped me get back to sleep when I awake in the middle of the night. She has a very calming presence and I trust her absolutely. – Karling H.
Michele has a calm and gentle manner which put me at ease straight away. I felt very comfortable during the sessions with her. I was able to shed light on some longstanding problems and, with Michele's help, develop a practical plan to help me overcome them. I was very satisfied with the outcome of our sessions and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. – Hazel S.
