Become a Certified Hypnotist for No Charge!
The Hypnosis Motivation Institute, HMI, is a non-profit college and clinic of hypnotherapy that has been serving the Southern California area for more than 35 years. HMI was founded in 1968 by Dr. John Kappas. Dr. Kappas literally defined the profession of hypnotherapy in 1973, when he wrote and defined the profession of a "Hypnotherapist" in the Federal Dictionary of Occupational Titles. That definition remains in force and unchanged today.
Celebrating 40 years of excellence, HMI has earned the distinction of being the first and only hypnotherapy training program to become nationally accredited, by an accrediting agency authorized by the U.S. Department of Education, in Washington, D.C.
HMI's hypnotherapy clinic is home to over 50 Certified Hypnotherapists and serves more than 200 clients a week. HMI estimates that it has provided more than 250,000 hours of private hypnotherapy services in its 35 year history. It is this clinical experience that provides the foundation for HMI's Hypnotherapy Certification Training and Internship program.
HMI strives to offer the most extensive and thorough hypnotherapy training and internship program available today.
