HMI Offers 2 Choices for Accredited Hypnotherapy Training

HMI's Residency Program

For residents of Southern California, U.S.A. HMI's Residency Program features an extensive, one year training and clinical internship training program.

HMI's resident students attend school two evenings a week plus a minimum of one Saturday morning per month. This allows students to continue to work full-time in their "traditional" jobs, while preparing for the future helping others as a Certified Hypnotherapist.

Eligible students can receive Federal Financial Aid, and can, in fact, start school with no money down, and not even begin paying for tuition until six months after they graduate. HMI's internship program provides students the opportunity to earn while they learn and begin their private practices in a supervised setting at the HMI clinical facilities.

HMI's Residency Program also offers additional certification programs in NLP and Therapeutic Imagery as well as a wide variety of continuing education courses for graduates.

HMI's Distance Learning College

HMI's Distance Learning College combines private tutorial instruction with videotaped instructions to bring the country's first Nationally Accredited Hypnotherapy training program to the privacy and convenience of your own home.
