We are dedicated to providing you with the best Hypnotherapy Training in Central Scotland. With years of hands on clinical expertise and from training many students in Hypnotherapy, NLP, Psychotherapy and Energy Psychology. Our goal is to maximize the ability of our students to be successful in their new career as a Hypnotherapist. Our classes are personal, ensuring we can dedicate plenty of time to each student. We don't churn out therapists, nor run large training events or open days. Instead we focus on people not on numbers. Our training groups are a normally a maximum of 12. This way we can really get to know our students.

The majority of students we train, go on to make their dreams of having a successful Hypnotherapy business a reality. They can become CNHC Regulated, if they wish, when they qualify and will hold a Diploma in Applied Hypnosis and Mind Techniques Dip (AHMT) and the Nationally Recognised Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma from studying our 12 month course. We also provide ongoing support and Supervision to our Graduates and CPD Specialist courses after qualifying.

We are so confident in the quality of our Hypnotherapy Training that we include links on our site to former students who now run their own successful practices. You can contact these people who will tell you what it was like to train with us. We don't rely solely on website testimonials. Speak to these real people who are out there working.

Reviews of our hypnotherapy training school from our past trainees

Dr Fiona McLeod (Helensburgh)

I thoroughly enjoyed studying for the HPD with Scottish Academy of Hypnosis and Mind Training. John and Rae are busy, experienced therapists who actually walk the walk‚ as well as talk the talk and their skill in hypnotherapy was evident in their teaching.

An element of training I hadn't taken into consideration was the other students. A class comprising of people from wide and varied backgrounds enriched the experience immensely and has led to a strong support network in the early years of therapy work.

Alison Bruce (Falkirk)

"Working with John & Rae was one of the best decisions of my life. I love being a hypnotherapist as it is a fantastic feeling when a client has come to me overwhelmed with their issues and after a few sessions are able to move forward with their lives. The leadership and encouragement that I received from both of these genuinely good people throughout my training and since I qualified can not be expressed in a few lines, but at all times their insights were amazing and heart warming."
