Letter from the Founder

Are you excited yet?  We are very excited!  Our Professional Hypnotist Program has been developed by an enthusiastic team of professionals deeply committed to your professional competency.

Company History

Houston Institute of Hypnosis was established in 2006 by Mr. Jeffrey Martin.  Mr. Martin is a Certified Hypnotist who has successfully operated a hypnosis center within the Houston area for over seven years. Mr. Martin moved his school and hypnosis center to Lincoln Ne. in 2008. His educational accomplishments include extensive and specialized training with The PATH Foundation and The National Federation of Neuro Linguistic Psychology (NLP).  In addition, Mr. Martin has received certifications from The National Guild of Hypnotists and The PATH Foundation. Mr. Martin has been certified in training with IHTI(tm) and the National Guild of hypnotists. Through his close association with the IHTT(tm), the Lincoln Institute of Hypnosis is able to offer a comprehensive hypnosis training program designed to impart the highest ethical and professional standards.

Never before in the history of the hypnotism business has a concept like the curriculum of IHTT(tm) been offered to our professional community.  Our team has amassed literally hundreds of years and thousands of client hours of experience in the highly paid field of hypnotism.

Experience is a good teacher.  Our marketing and business-building courses are the best in the business.  This fact opens the door to real business opportunity.  IHTT(tm) is an association whose members have all run successful hypnotism practices in the United States and abroad.

Although the concept of the IHTT(tm) association is at the pinnacle of new thinking in the field of hypnotism, our members are an exemplary group of long-standing and respected hypnotists.  All IHTT(tm) schools are owned independently.  Each school is required to meet the high standards of IHTT(tm).  An operational hypnosis practice is required at each IHTT(tm) school.

Since IHTT(tm) requires that each school to have its own clinic treating live clients in the real world, student training occurs with actual clients, not other students.  Once qualified, students practice their skills with clients who have real needs under the supervision of an experienced hypnosis trainer.  Unfortunately, most hypnosis training only allows practice on fellow students giving an artificial experience to the student.  International Hypnotism Training Institutesä Professional Hypnotist Program provides each graduate with a toolbox of knowledge and skill that can only be acquired in a real clinical environment.

Educational Philosophy

Lincoln Institute of Hypnotism and International Hypnotism Training Institutesä (IHTItm) subscribe to the goal of providing each student with a positive training experience by certified instructors in an encouraging educational setting.  Our goal is to allow each student the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in all aspects of the program.  Each teacher or staff member is committed to ensuring the successful completion of the program by each individual student.  IHTItm and Lincoln Institute of Hypnosis are committed to:

  1. Providing each student with the opportunity to work within real life circumstances in all aspects of running a successful business in the field of hypnotism. An ad campaign once said, “Nothing beats the real thing, baby.”  Lincoln Institute of Hypnosis and IHTItm believe that in order to be competent, a certified hypnotist must have real life experience during training.
  2. Imparting specific values, beliefs, and professional maturity so that each hypnotist trained through our program possesses the character needed to be an ethical ambassador of our profession.
  3. Setting high boundaries by modeling the professional behavior necessary for each student’s success.
  4. Scheduling trainer time and allocating office space to guarantee each trainee receives direct feedback from his or her certified instructor.
  5. Structuring a step-by-step program including progressive experience analyzing real cases within a genuine hypnosis practice.

Lincoln Institute of Hypnosis and IHTItm share a common goal with the student.  That goal is student success as a professional hypnotist.  The true measure of our school’s success can only be demonstrated through the success of our graduates.

60% – 69% performance of skills     =      D     (1 Grade Point)

0% – 59% performance of skills     =      F     (0 Grade Points)

Satisfactory Progress

  1. In order to maintain satisfactory progress in the Professional Hypnotist Program students must maintain a 2.0 Grade Point Average.
  2. Each student’s progress will be evaluated at the mid-point and upon completion of each subject. Grade reports will include analysis of the student’s progress toward completion of the program.
  3. Students making unsatisfactory progress for the program at the end of a progress evaluation period or who achieve less than a 1.5 GPA in any given subject will be placed on academic probation for the next progress evaluation period. If the student on academic probation achieves satisfactory progress for the subsequent progress evaluation period, but does not achieve the required grades to meet overall satisfactory progress for the program, the student may be continued on academic probation for one more progress evaluation period.
  4. If a student on academic probation fails to achieve satisfactory progress for the first probationary progress evaluation period, the student’s enrollment will be terminated.

  1. In accordance with Title 40, Administrative Code Lincoln Institute of Hypnosis may allow a student whose enrollment was terminated for unsatisfactory progress to reenroll after a period of time equal to the length of the progress period the student was in at the time of termination. Such reenrollment does not circumvent the approved refund policy.

  3. A student who is obligated for the full tuition may request a grade of “incomplete” if the student withdraws for an appropriate reason unrelated to the student’s academic status. Therefore, if a student withdraws from the program for satisfactory reasons (i.e. illness, death in family, military service, etc.), the student is allowed to file for an incomplete.  This will allow the student to return to finish the program within 12 months from the withdrawal date.  Classes withdrawn from will be graded as incomplete, and upon return to classes, the student may reenroll in these classes at no additional cost of tuition.
