Welcome to the Hypnosis Motivation Institute

Founded in 1968 by Drs. John and Alex Kappas and celebrating over 50 years of excellence, HMI is a three generation, family run, Non-Profit Organization that holds the distinction of being America’s First Nationally Accredited College of Hypnotherapy.

Seal: HMI 55 Years of Excellence

HMI’s 300-hour Diploma in Hypnotherapy Program, accredited by ACCET, combines 100% online tutorial attention with streaming video lessons that allow you to study anytime, anywhere.

Everything you need to know about our training, costs, certification, accreditation, and more are provided in this school catalog, including how you can take the first 10 hours of our online training for no charge. Please read the entire catalog and discover what we believe makes us the right choice for your hypnotherapy education.
