Course testimonials



Featured testimonial:

May I add that since my first contact with SAIH I have been only impressed with the professionalism of how things are done. The response to one's mails, the way one is constantly kept up to speed with the arrangements made, the SMS, reminding one of the booking and the SMS providing the trainers' details...are, if it has to be summed up in one word...excellent.

In a country where most no longer pay any attention to professionalism and are no longer service orientated, this experience was a pleasant surprise.

Furthermore I have to say that I was just as impressed with the way Arno presented the training session. He really knows how capture the interests of the attendees. Both thumbs up for him.

Jurgen Grosse-Heitmeyer
Head: Human Resources and Compliance

Luan Holtzhauzen:
"I enjoyed my studies with SAIH and MasterMind very much. It will be difficult to find an institution with better administration, friendlier and more knowledgeable instructors and courses that are more empowering. I can sum it up in four words: A world changing experience."


Hendrik Roux :
"I would also like to tell you that my personal experience during CC1 did change my life. The severe problems with arthritis had a effect on my life for a long period. As from CC1 I don't experience the chronic pain connected with the arthritis or my kidney problems any more."


Beth Moalem:
"Thank you all for making this journey so exciting and with such a professional and extensive course. The most remarkable aspect of your Institute, is that all students are made to feel so welcomed and accepted, that there is no sense of competitiveness, which creates an amazing learning environment. A rarity indeed. Without all your encouragement and unstinting advice, I would not feel as confident and equipped to practice this amazing therapy, and with the knowledge that should I need advice, SAIH is just a phone call away. This course has enabled me to really make a difference in someone's life and I will use this knowledge with integrity and with absolute respect for this powerful modality."


Lenèlda Loedolff:
"I would just like to thank you all for your great support and great teaching and learning Experience. SAIH is a unique experience of self discovery, discovery of each other and life and the universe. It has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever encountered and one of the greatest tools I have gathered in my toolbox for understanding life, living life and being life. I would like to express my inner most gratitude to you all by feeding it back to you as you teach us in our client centered studies. SAIH centered-ness would be something like this; you guys are amazing and because you are amazing and teach the acceptance of all in their believes causes you to teach wholeness every day in every way which you are dedicated to, and because you are dedicated in wholeness you teach consistency, and by being consistently whole would mean that your approach consists in the teaching and application of Trust, Honesty, Tolerance, Gentleness, Joy, Defenselessness, Generosity, Patience, faithfulness and open mindedness. When these characteristics come forth your only outcome can be Peace and Love."


Samantha Mortimer:
"It was an absolute pleasure studying through Mastermind / South African Institute of Hypnotism. The course material was clear and easy to follow and your facilitators were all great. Everything was explained so well and when any questions came up you were extremely helpful. Thank you to Arno, Bianca and Claudia for your guidance. The administration side of things was also very well organized and everything ran so smoothly that it was a pleasure doing bookings & payments, etc. Thank you Bev for all your assistance. I look forward to all the follow up courses as well as refreshers as they are in my opinion important in upholding the standard of this modality. Thank you again for this wonderful journey."


Antje Swart:
"This is just a quick thank you for all the teachings and lessons. It is working! You and the others are amazing instructors and the SAIH framework gives enough stability to fall back to when things don't go according to the book."


"The handouts/added info and teaching style is what I've come to expect from SAIH's high standards and it never disappoints."

Anita Ludski:
"The content of the "Group Hypnosis" Course well researched, developed and beneficial even in my private healing practice. I found that every dynamic of the group aspect is just as important in my one on one personal consultations. I found the Hypnotic Language section to be of particular interest and of tremendous value. The use of Metaphors, Deepeners, Pacing, Semantics and Patterns of Indirect Suggestion have been emphasized at each of the training courses I have attended but this one made just so much more sense. I have always known semantics and patterns of indirect suggestion to be fundamental to the development of a successful script but the material and the way in which this was presented made a significant impact on me and has enhanced my ability to write more elegant and more subtle scripts, with obvious benefits to my clients. This course has given me an opportunity to further develop and improve my skills to enable me to deliver a more professional and efficient service as a Hypnotherapist. I love what I do and I find it extremely rewarding and satisfying to be able to help people heal and change their lives. I do this by choice and there is nothing else I would rather do . I love it! I started my private healing practice full time about 18 months ago, it is very successful. Although I love what I do, this is my business and in order to make it viable, I need to continually market myself and my business. I see Group Hypnosis as an excellent marketing tool to increase my income, not only by holding Group Sessions but by natural progression to increase my private/personal client base by more word of mouth advertising. As you know, word of mouth advertising is the best form of advertising, isn't it? I certainly recommend this course to everyone who is serious about Hypnosis as a profession."

Mari-Lene Fourie:
"Brilliant, as I think it can't get better, it does. Loved it! Thank you."

Pierre Immelman:
"This, together with CB was the best course for me to date. It was truly memorable."

Sally Wilke:
"This course was outstanding. I feel so much more confident to actually deliver a script to a group."

Testimonials: Compulsive behaviour (incl. smoking cessation)in hypnotherapy practice and the contributing factors of stress, anxiety and depression (CB) - click here for course info

Annette Evans:
"I feel that the Mastermind Compulsive Behaviour Resolution technique is so beautiful and it excites me how powerful it is in its simplicity. I love the options of the two opposing doors and find it such a wonderful client centred approach in that the client’s subconscious visualises both outcomes and then makes the choices herself. This is by far my favourite technique and also by doing a thorough pre-talk in the first session, I was able to prepare a very effective pre-prepared script to fully benefit the client. The journaling helped me find a great introduction to the pre-talk and go a long way towards forming a wonderful rapport with my client. I love the almost tangible spiral of belief it created. I was very excited to learn this technique the first time around, and now that I feel it is so immensely beneficial for smokers I definitely plan to use in in my practice over and over again wherever relevant and required."

Alison Zweers:
"I really enjoyed this module and have found this to be the most useful in my practice, and the most rewarding. Just to brag, I have included an email from a lady who had done smoking cessation with me. She had previously stopped smoking for 8 years after watching her best friend die of lung cancer, but had started again. During her first symptomatic session, she lay, propped up with pillows, and coughed right throughout the session. Her lungs were so clogged. We then changed the strategy in the second session and had her sitting upright and it went smoother, no coughing. She couldn't climb 2 stairs without wheezing. Anyway, this session really made me realize how useful we are to society at large. Even though I passed my Honors Degree in Psychological Counseling last year, it is truly my studies through SAIH that I've been able to truly make a lasting difference".

Anton Kloppers:
"This course enhanced my hypnotherapy skills tremendously! I feel equipped to help clients with CB issues for the very first time!".

Brigitte Bowles

"Wow, awesome as usual. Had some great insights into exploring more and taking the 'soul' journey to the next level. I enjoyed every moment. Thanks you for the most amazing opportunity".

Des Attwood CHT

Past Life Regression is a fascinating subject which was so brilliantly brought to life (excuse the pun), by Claudia at the groundbreaking Past Life Regression and Soul Journey course on 3/4th September 2011. Even the harshest skeptic would not be able to refute the highly credible examples shown on the course, the origin of which is from well respected and recognized sources. All practicing Hypnotherapists should consider gaining an understanding and sensitivity to PLR as this knowledge is a vital tool in any Hypnotherapy practice. No matter what your personal belief system is, your client's beliefs could differ, and a spontaneous past life may well be accessed during treatment. This reality was so well dealt with during the course. Claudia's thoroughly researched and brilliantly delivered training covered many eventualities and pitfalls, resulting in participants feeling confident and ready to deal with any therapy session detours.

The fact that the course participants represented such a wide spectrum of society, served as a fantastic precursor to the potential diverse landscape of a thriving Hypnotherapy practice. The Soul Journey component of the course is a REAL cherry on the top. What a fantastic, simple, yet effective option to be able to offer to our clients! This course differs from any other PLR courses you may have attended in the past, in that it is TOTALLY Client Centered and the focus is on the practical application thereby preparing student and qualified Hypnotherapists to be comfortable to fully integrate these skills into therapy sessions as and when needed.

Once you have attended this course, you will agree that the content is so powerful, that it should be compulsory for every SAIH trained Hypnotherapist to attend and include in his or her toolbox. Thanks to Claudia and her team for developing a course that will literally change lives!

Estelle Keen:
"Will be using this skill as part of my practice".

Mike Tyrer:
"It has touched me on a personal level, asking more about spirituality".

Roger Luke:
"The weekend was just amazing! The positive past life regression & soul journey for me was so beautiful and so incredibly enlightening, actually life changing!

I regressed to a life as a monk in Tibet passing over during meditation in a temple in the mountains. The soul journey took me to the most magical blissful place where there were thousands of souls in the form of white pulsating energy masses that were joined together in the God consciousness of absolute love and oneness. WOW!

I facilitated my sweetheart on a positive PLR last night for two and half hours which was absolutely incredible and life changing for both of us.

I am amazed at how easy this process is and how powerful the soul screening process is."

Jennifer Steyn :
"This course was excellent. It really taught me the importance of 'language in hypnosis', as well as teaching the most successful 'language'. For me as a therapist I believe this course is 'critical' to any hypnosis curriculum. I don't believe that one could be a successful hypnotist and therapist without this content. Your curriculum would be incomplete without it and one would need to seek this content elsewhere. Handouts and material well thought out - obviously put together by someone very experienced! Well done!"

Brian Roodt :
"Excellent! A whole array of useful tools and building blocks adding to the "whole" and bringing it all together in a very meaningful way. Enjoyable and enlightening."

Miles Harrop:

Ebrahim Sarlie:
"Relevant – Informative – Enlightening – Life Changing – This course should become a CC. Will benefit me immensely in terms of establishing rapport and successful sessions with clients."

" Wow ! Now I realise how little I know. This course should be compulsory. We should not be let loose on clients without having this knowledge. I almost don’t want to see any more clients until I have digested this information as I know it will make me into a much better hypnotherapist. Arno, your knowledge is so comprehensive and every aspect explained in detail why it is necessary."

Graduate Testimonials

Fahrin Mamdani CHT:
"Here's something about my studying experience at SAIH and some future plans...

Studying at SAIH was one of the best learning experiences I have had. Hypnosis is a very useful therapeutic tool and I feel that it is not something that cannot be taught theoretically. All the instructors - yourself (all the modules), Vic (auto-hypnosis and CC1), Wendel (CC3 & CC4), Tom (Past Life regression) and William (who came for a little while during CC1) – used the principles of experiential learning extremely effectively. Through the practice sessions in class, I learnt a lot about myself, which in turn now enables me to understand others better.

I recently graduated with a degree in Psychology and in my opinion, modern psychotherapy, due to lack of time (on the therapists’ part) and financial resources (on the clients’ part), has unfortunately become more of a damage-control mechanism and tends towards putting a “plaster over a crack” and curing the symptoms rather than the cause of the symptoms. It is my belief that using hypnotherapy, therapists will be able to effect long-term individual change by addressing the cause of the symptoms. It is my humble hope that I will be able to touch lives in a positive manner with the tools and knowledge I gained at SAIH".
