National Occupational Skills Standard for Hypnotherapy (NOSS Hypnotherapy) Malaysia

The National Occupational Skills Standard for Hypnotherapy Vocational Education in Malaysia has been officially established and launched! This is believed to be the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy vocational education standard in Asia. In the future, obtaining this national accreditation will involve either traditional skill training education (2400 hours, with approximately 70% being practical training in applied techniques) or Recognition Prior Experience, a comprehensive evaluation and assessment of previously acquired knowledge and work experience.

I was excited upon receiving this news. I recall in 2021 when I took the initiative to discuss this proposal with government officials. Back then, simply gaining acceptance for the term "hypnotherapy" took numerous discussions over a year and a half, which was a mentally exhausting process. At that time, almost everyone advised me against dreaming big and getting involved in so many matters.
However, I firmly believed that this was an essential aspect to garner greater recognition for hypnotherapy in Malaysia.
Gradually, more and more people joined our cause, including a group of excellent professionals from various backgrounds (career counselors, clinical psychologists, medical doctors, educational psychologist, developmental psychologist, HR experts, social workers, etc.) who also possessed hypnotherapy experience. They became involved in the designated this hypnotherapy vocational education standard process. We referenced hypnotherapy education standards from countries like the United States and the United Kingdom, while adapting to local culture and needs. With the support of the Malaysian government, we have finally completed this vocational standard for hypnotherapy education!
I am truly thrilled and honored to be part of this milestone for the hypnotherapy profession!

Hypnotherapy as a professional occupation in the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) Malaysia

Hiro Koo, the clinical hypnotherapist from New Mind Brain Health Centre, is the first one who get approval to list and develop vocational training pathway for the title of "Hypnotherapy" in the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) under the Department of Skills Development (DSD), Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia.


Another wonderful news after the PASS of my PhD Viva Oral Exam. After more than one year of active discussion with Malaysia government relevant bodies, finally I received another PASS for the approval of creating and developing the “hypnotherapy” course standard according to the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) for the Malaysia local field.
It is a historical movement for hypnotherapy field in South East Asia as Hypnotherapist will be a formal recognized professional occupation in Malaysia context!
It is really tough process, but I am glad that I manage to overcome all the obstacles. However, it is just a start…now we need to develop the NOSS standard for the Malaysia field, it may take quite a long time…but better then do nothing.
Believe it or not, It is not for me, it is for the field. I hope to create more recognition for my profession! Reason? I love hypnotherapy. Thanks for my hypnotherapist peers who support me along the journey.
然而整个制定标准的过程耗时耗力,还需要多方专才协助。可能还需要很多时日才能制定出国家标准证书课程。所以我的催眠文凭Diploma课程还是会照着已经成熟的英国National Occipational Standard(NOS)水准去执行。
