Easily Learning Becomes Confidently DOING Hypnosis.

A common misconception about hypnosis is who can or can’t be hypnotized. In reality, there are NO bad subjects, only inflexible hypnotists.

Some schools focus on teaching script-based hypnosis or just a few techniques.


MMHA focuses on teaching both conversational AND direct hypnosis. Best of all, we make it FUN!

This Neo-Ericksonian approach gives you the flexibility to help people in everyday conversation or a professional setting. We also include entertainment and impromptu hypnosis lessons. There is a solution for EVERYONE inside of the academy.

Yes, YOU can do hypnosis, too!

Just like when you first start learning to walk or ride a bike, feeling uncertain and fearful is normal.

Eventually though, everyone gains the confidence needed for it to feel natural.

Our proven system of principle based hypnosis teaching will take you from brand new to hypnotically confident.

You’ll be doing hypnosis from the very beginning without ever needing a script. No-training wheels required.

You CAN do hypnosis and we are here to help you confidently get there.

What’s in the Core 24 Modules?

The Fundamentals - Mike Mandel explains his neo-Ericksonian model of hypnosis and guides you through the first exercise to learn how to calibrate your subjects.

The Fundamentals (continued) - Mike dives straight into topics including calibration, congruence, rapport and the John Grinder model. You'll learn different models of hypnosis and you'll get your first leverage induction.

Ericksonian Principles - The keys to Ericksonian hypnosis! Mike guides you through utilization and incorporation, artful vagueness, double binds, embedded commands and analog marking, yes sets, compliance sets and linkages.

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.

Power Language - 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.

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!)

Hypnotic Metaphors: Part I - This lesson introduces you to metaphor and the Milton Erickson handshake interrupt induction. It nicely bridges with what you learned in lesson 6 and gives you more conversational techniques.

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.

Hypnotic Deepeners and Confusion - You'll learn how to amplify trance and how to use the Milton H. Erickson confusion principle. Mike teaches one particular confusion technique that he's never taught anybody until this academy. Bonus: We've included new language patterns for you to add to your toolbox.

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.

Building Your Toolbox: Part II - This lesson dives deeper into using the visual, auditory and kinesthetic (feeling) systems. We also cover anchoring, abreaction, nominalizations, and meeting client expectations. Learn about painted words. We also give you another hypnotic induction and deepening technique.

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.

Suggestions, Ideomotor and Confusion - We're really starting to weave together the direct and indirect paradigms of hypnosis now! Learn about hypnotic convincers in the Ericksonian paradigm, more on Ericksonian confusion principles, and how to use hypnosis to enhance memory. Also: Ideomotor signals and universal therapy.

More Inductions and Tips on Hypnotherapy - Learn more about ideomotor signals and subjective units of distress (SUDs). Discover the inner secrets to crafting suggestions or directions, and learn a new induction technique. We also cover self hypnosis and how to hypnotize children.

Ericksonian Language Development and Getting Deeper Trances - Learn all about the language of trance and wakefulness. The Meta Model and the Milton Model. The power of Hinge Sentences, Pattern Interrupts, Anchoring, Fractionation, and much more!

The Dave Elman Induction - A deep dive into the famous and very powerful Dave Elman induction. People sell entire courses on this induction, which are of lesser quality than this lesson. Learn this correctly and it just may become your go-to induction with clients.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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". You'll learn the diagonal reframe to instantly change how clients feel about something. You'll learn a new induction (the conscious/unconscious dissociation) and how to perform powerful pattern interrupts.

Anyone Can Be
A Hypnosis Rockstar

Some schools believe their special techniques or magical words are what create hypnosis. Others think it takes years of college level academia to confidently use hypnosis.

We aren’t saying they are wrong…

We just know we are right
