HMI Residency Program

Admissions Policy

The following is the criteria for selection of candidates for admission to HMI’s one-year Professional Hypnotherapy Program. HMI reserves the right to reject an applicant and refund all deposit and tuition fees paid by said applicant. HMI does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, ethnic origin, or religion. Hypnosis 101 students are considered applicants until such time that they have completed the 101 course and met the remaining requirements for admission to the one-year program.

Personal Interview: Each applicant must attend an interview and tour the facilities with an HMI admissions representative. During this process, the admissions representative will determine the applicant’s interest, openness, and appropriateness for a future in counseling others. This determination will result from a combination of the following criteria:

  1. Successful completion of the Hypnosis 101 Course
  2. Sensitivity to the ethics and responsibilities of counseling others
  3. Ability to achieve a satisfactory tuition payment plan
  4. Must be at least 18 years of age
  5. Must be a High-School Graduate or equivalent GED
  6. Appropriateness to represent and market themselves as a private-practice professional and adherence to HMI’s dress code policy
  7. Appropriateness for the emotional demands and requirements of the counseling field

To accomplish the goals stated above, HMI uses the following tools:

Statement of Qualifications/Interview Questionnaire Form: This questionnaire is to be completed by the applicant prior to the interview, then reviewed and discussed with the applicant during the interview.

Taylor Johnson Temperament Analysis: The Taylor Johnson Temperament Analysis is a standardized evaluation tool that rates subjects on nine scales that are important to the Institute in evaluating an applicant’s appropriateness for the counseling profession.

Non-Discrimination: (Students with Disabilities): HMI is committed to providing equal educational opportunities for students with disabilities, who are otherwise qualified, in an academic environment free from harassment and discrimination. In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and state and local requirements regarding students and applicants with disabilities, HMI does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the administration of its education-related programs and activities.

Under these laws, no qualified individual with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity of the College. All applicants must posses an ability to benefit from HMI’s training. The applicant’s physical, mental, and emotional capabilities must be such that they have the ability to successfully market themselves and provide ethical and professional services as a Hypnotherapist in private practice.

All rejections of applicants, based on ability to benefit, are subject to final approval by the Institutes Director.
