How To Study For Certification In Hypnosis Practices


Hypnosis Practises Training Streams


Studying with the South African Institute of Hypnotism (SAIH)™

Understanding the power of the subconscious mind is probably one of the most enlightening experiences you can embark on, and applying this knowledge can benefit your everyday life in almost every aspect.


Wow! Seeing the CHT after my name is really exciting!

Thank YOU and thanks to SAIH for this amazing journey. I have enjoyed every moment of it and the best part is that this is just the beginning. And, a very special thanks to you for those prophetic words you said to me at the very beginning of this journey that inspired me to follow my dream.


I do love this modality everyone inspired me to better myself so my journey with SAIH will be ongoing. It is indeed an honour to be included as a member of the Hypno family and I am really excited to be able to help people make positive changes. Warmest regards - Zaahera


















SAIH and the Mastermind Hypnotherapy Training Centre is not your ordinary training centre. Our world-class curriculum has been finetuned since 1998 and our graduates enter their vocation with confidence and competence. Acceptance into the program is not determined by academic pre-requisites or scholastic achievement. However, we do seek passionate and determined people who are deeply committed to improving themselves and others. Therefore, if you feel a calling to apply your inherent talents and compassion, you bring the minimum requirements to embark on this journey. Additionally, if you have a background in other supporting modalities this may well enhance your overall competence.

The client-centred methods that we teach you at SAIH versus therapist-centred methods are based on the empowering truth that the client holds the answers to their problems. The client-centred therapist's task then, is to carefully listen and strive to understand the client and apply proven techniques, so that the client can tap into their natural ability to grow and improve.

"Patients carry their own doctor inside. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the physician within each patient a chance to go to work." - Dr Albert Schweitzer




SAIH offers an integrated training stream system where practical skills and knowledge are utilised throughout the courses ensuring students personally experience the benefits of both giving and receiving hypnosis combined with various in depth hypnosis techniques. In-class training incorporates many practical exercises ranging from group hypnosis sessions to one on one practice. In addition to the opportunity of engaging in conversation and asking questions during the weekend courses, there is also reasonable access to the trainers and the support and guidance of trained facilitators through the assessor student liaison during the assessing of required case studies.


With a comprehensive selection of courses available, SAIH caters for a wide variety of preferences. The internationally recognised qualifications of Certified Parts Therapy Facilitator (CPTF) and Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT) are complemented by speciality courses such as Spiritual Hypnosis Practices (SHP), Conversational Hypnosis (CHP), Hypno Med (Med1), Compulsive Behaviour & Smoking Cessations (CB) as well as Past Life Regression and Soul Journeys (PL& SJ).


The full qualification of CHT (Certified Hypnotherapist) may be obtained within approximately 18 months of study (depending on the school calendar) or alternatively completed in sections over a longer period of time.

"There is no greater reward in life than the sight of a shining smile, after a waterfall of tears, and knowing that you were in part responsible for the transition."

- Andrew Post





The SAIH training stream system is divided into MAINSTREAM courses (including Home Study modules) and SPECIALTY Courses. It is designed so students can practice within the scope of their training and can continue the path to full qualification as a Certified Hypnotherapist (CHT).


SAIH is the only training Institute on the African continent to offer the internationally recognized certification as Parts Therapy Facilitator.
