American Hypnosis Association Online Courses

HMI Book Club with Marc Gravelle, CHt - Online Course

Presented By: Marc Gravelle

Marc Gravelle

Certified Hypnotherapist and Senior Staff Instructor for 25 years at HMI College of Hypnotherapy, Marc Gravelle was a mentor and inspiration to many HMI students, graduates, and colleagues, including myself. Having himself mentored for many years under both Dr. John Kappas and Alex Kappas, Marc combined a strong Kappasinian methodology with a pragmatic down to earth approach to therapy and behavior.

Marc demonstrated this pragmatic approach by integrating the use of many classic and popular self-help books into his hypnotherapy practice. As one of his biggest fans and long-term clients and having personally experienced the power and benefits of this practice, I suggested and encouraged him to share this idea with the students at HMI. Together we produced 20 half-hour shows for HMI Web TV (aka Hypnosis TV) titled; “HMI Book Club.”

On behalf of Marc and myself, we hope you enjoy.

George Kappas, MA, LMFT
Director, HMI College of Hypnotherapy
