Introducing the International Academy of Hypnosis

The International Academy of Hypnosis (IAH) offers students opportunities to gain world-class recognition through their internationally accredited courses.

For thousands of years hypnosis has been used to assist people in their work, sport, business, health, relationships and everyday life. Today, many are still amazed at how a person's life can be improved by simply knowing "I can". Without negativity, our minds, bodies and lives can dramatically change for the better.

The International Academy of Hypnosis (IAH) is the leading authority for the certification and qualification of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy in South Africa, offering students opportunities to gain world-class recognition through their internationally accredited courses.

Started and run by hypnotic trio Lindy-Lee Shepherd, Arthur Long and Tony Wake – all well-known South African Hypnotherapists, the IAH specialises in the training and certification of professionals in the areas of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Counselling, Therapeutic Intervention, Psychology, Unconscious Communication and Business Mastery.

Adhering to the strict standards of world-renowned institutions and organisations, the IAH are proud to be amongst the leaders in the fields of human behaviour and developmental research, communication, therapy, counselling, strategic intervention and personal empowerment.

This has also allowed them to create some of the most comprehensive and in-depth courses available to date in the above mentioned areas of expertise.

Unparalleled certification

The IAH is the only institute on the African continent that can boast unrivalled status as having the ability to grant students the title of Clinical Hypnotherapists and provide unparalleled certification, experience and qualification to each and every student who finishes any of the courses.

All students are encouraged to continually improve on their knowledge and expertise by promoting Continuous Education Units (CEU's). What this means is that when a student has successfully completed any of the internationally recognised courses they are automatically awarded the accompanying CEU's for that course, which they can then use as credits towards a higher qualification, if they so choose.

This is to empower each and every student with the ability to further their education and their future with first-class knowledge and qualifications from the leading authority in South Africa.

They have facilitation venues throughout South Africa.

The IAH are accredited by and registered with the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA), the International Association of Counsellors and Therapists (IACT), the International Alliance of Professional Hypnotists (IAPH) as well as the Australian Hypnotherapists Association (AHA).
