78 minutes
LESSON 5

Learn what Mike Mandel refers to as "power language". These lessons will apply within and outside of hypnosis. You'll use power language in normal conversation, in pre-talk, or during hypnotic work. Just this lesson alone will give you life-changing results.

71 minutes
LESSON 7

Hypnotic Metaphors - Part I

74 minutes
LESSON 15

Ericksonian Language Development and Getting Deeper Trances

88 minutes
LESSON 17

Dealing with Phobias and Anxieties


In this lesson Mike teaches you all about how to deal with phobia and anxieties. Ineffective hypnotists often think these are the same thing - they are not! Pay close attention to the fine points in this material and you'll become far better than most (poorly trained) hypnotists.

100 minutes
LESSON 19

Smoking Cessation, Addictions and Cravings


In this lesson Mike Mandel shows you how to help people with all sorts of addictions and cravings including how to deal with smokers. If you're helping people with these issues this lesson alone will transform your results and your business.

105 minutes
LESSON 21

Weight Management


Why call it "weight management" instead of "weight loss"? Because when you lose something you attempt to find it again.  We don't want our clients finding their lost weight. You'll learn Mike Mandel's 4-session approach to helping clients achieve their ideal body composition while building up their self esteem and installing supportive, positive beliefs.

117 minutes
LESSON 23

Self Hypnosis


This lesson is all about the wonderful world of self hypnosis. Mike and Chris share many methods and the three-step setup that you must use to get the best results.  It's easy to do! We've included this highly detailed lesson because it's an important topic and we're sick of seeing others try to charge a lot of money for JUST this topic.  We're committed to delivering superior training and value.

86 minutes
LESSON 4

Ericksonian Principles (continued)


Since Erickson's work is so fundamental to what we teach, we had to break the core material into two lessons. Learn how to be artfully vague with language, and how to build rapport and notice trance as it develops in your clients / subjects.

67 minutes
LESSON 6

Impromptu Hypnosis


Mike Mandel takes you beyond Ericksonian hypnosis and introduces you to the basics of direct hypnosis based on suggestibility tests and the principles of heteroaction and homoaction (If you don't know these two terms you need this course!)

83 minutes
LESSON 8

Hypnotic Metaphors - Part II


Nested loops: This is a highly effective conversational hypnosis technique many instructors don't understand and don't teach. We also give you the Kinesthetic Ambiguity rapid induction to continue building your toolbox of hypnotic inductions.

85 minutes
LESSON 10

Building Your Toolbox - Part I


Building your toolbox! New suggestibility tests and direct-method inductions (and much more). At this point we're starting to blur the lines between Erickson's artfully vague language and we're soon going to shift into the direct, authoritative model of hypnosis.

89 minutes
LESSON 12

The Direct Method of Hypnosis


Now that you have a very firm grasp of Ericksonian methods, it's time to teach you the direct hypnosis paradigm for personal change. Mike teaches you a logical 7 step method that is easily learned, enabling you to deal with a wide variety of problems and issues.

Entertainment Hypnosis


By popular demand, this lesson focuses entirely on using hypnosis for entertainment. Whether you want to hypnotize friends at a party or do full stage hypnosis shows, this is the education you need. Remember, Mike Mandel did stage shows for 43 years! What he shares is pure gold.

103 minutes
LESSON 20

Pain Management


Most people don't know this about hypnosis, but it really shines with helping people control pain.  We often get pain management specialists (medical doctors) coming to our live training JUST to learn this topic. In this online training you'll learn several different methods to deal with pain, including submodality shifts, direct suggestion and glove anaesthesia.

98 minutes
LESSON 22

Procrastination and Insomnia


We attack these two common client problems with this lesson. At this point in the lesson plan you'll already have solid ideas and tools to help you deal with both problems, but Mike shares many more nuggets of wisdom to help you achieve superior results.

93 minutes
LESSON 24

The Nominalization Lens Protocol, Pattern Interrupts and More Hypnosis Tools.


In this lesson, Mike hands you several new techniques to help people change their lives.  You'll learn Mike's own "nominalization lens protocol" which helps clients see their life through a new "lens".

Why Our Students Love This Training

"The Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy has been tremendously helpful to my training as a hypnotist. Hands down, MMHA is the best of all the training I have taken. Time and again, you guys go beyond what is expected. Truly impressive. It is, hands down, the best offering in the hypnotic world."

Tom Laessig

"Seriously, as a new hypnotist I've been inhaling everything I can find, and you guys are the gold standard. There's lots of good stuff out there and I certainly haven't seen everything, but I really appreciate the care and the quality level you guys put into your offerings."

James Harrison

You’ll Develop In These Three Ways

1

You’ll become a skilled hypnotist.

If you desire to help people therapeutically, or start a career doing hypnosis for entertainment, then you’ll have formal hypnosis training that you can count on. You’ll be confident introducing yourself as a hypnotist, and you’ll be comfortable demonstrating your skills in any situation. We’ve even created training to help you build a business doing hypnosis if that’s your goal.

2

You’ll develop powerful communication skills.

All communication has the power to become hypnotic. You’ll understand how to turn any human interaction into a hypnotic experience where the other person is drawn into the conversation and deeply focused on the entire experience.  While none of this looks like classic hypnosis, it is very much hypnotic just like a great movie or fascinating conversation.  We train a lot of professionals who never introduce themselves to anyone as a hypnotist - yet they use hypnotic skills all day long.

3

You'll develop as a person.

You’ll learn how to think differently about people’s problems, resources, sticking points and opportunities. And you’ll find it impossible to avoid applying these new ways of thinking to your own life, relationships, work situations and more. In short, the most common side effect of studying with the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy is dramatic self improvement. This training will change your life, but only if you let it.  We can’t wait to hear your story.

Meet the Instructors

We are Mike Mandel and Chris Thompson, and we are the co-founders and co-trainers at the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy. We are best friends who share a common belief that learning should be fun. 

Mike Mandel is a professional hypnotist, speaker, and trainer. He brilliantly combines experience, education and entertainment to make learning hypnosis FUN.

As a kid in 1965, he started hypnotizing his friends. As a young man in 1975, he became a professional stage hypnotist. In the 1990s he branched out into hypnosis for therapy and forensic hypnosis. He has more than 50 years of hypnosis experience!

Mike is widely regarded as one of the premier hypnotists in the world today. In 2019 he was chosen by a group of his peers to give the keynote address at HypnoThoughts Live; the world’s largest hypnosis convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.

World-renowned hypnotist Freddy Jacquin said to Mike Mandel, “I don’t believe there is anyone better than you at the work you do.”

Chris Thompson is a professional hypnotist and co-trainer alongside Mike Mandel. He became fascinated with hypnosis, personal growth and self-improvement in 1992 when he first saw Mike do a stage hypnosis show at his university. After corporate careers in engineering and finance, Chris convinced Mike to take his training online, and they co-founded Mike Mandel Hypnosis.

Mike and Chris are deeply grateful for the tremendous response from all of our MMHA members around the world. We are privileged to serve you all!
