The Hypnosis Motivation Institute, (HMI), is a non-profit nationally accredited hypnosis training college and clinic of hypnotherapy that has been serving Southern California for more than 50 years.
The Hypnosis Motivation Institute was founded in 1968 by Dr John Kappas. Dr Kappas defined the profession of hypnotherapy in 1973 when he wrote and illustrated the job of a "Hypnotherapist" in the Federal Dictionary of Occupational Titles. That definition remains in force and unchanged today.
The Hypnosis Motivation Institute has earned the distinction of being America’s first hypnotherapy training school to become nationally accredited, by an accrediting agency recognised by the U.S. Department of Education, in Washington, D.C.
