Exciting Insights and Collaborations at the 7th Singapore Hypnotism Conference 2024

I had the great honor of being invited to participate in the 7th Singapore Hypnotherapy Conference organized by the Association of Hypnosis Professionals Singapore (AHPS Singapore) in conjunction with the World Hypnotism Day. It was a fantastic opportunity to share my expertise through a special lecture on my research-related topics.

Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised to witness the enthusiasm of numerous AHPS members attending the 7th edition of the hypnotherapy conference in Singapore. The event was truly invigorating, bringing together professionals from Singapore, Indonesia, and Malaysia, including psychiatrists, hypnotists, hypnotherapists, psychologists, and counseling experts. Their passion for the field of hypnotherapy was palpable.

The conference facilitated networking and discussions among professionals who shared a keen interest in the practice of hypnotherapy. It was encouraging to observe the growing adoption of hypnotherapeutic techniques in clinical settings such as hospitals and clinics in Singapore. This trend suggests an increasing recognition of hypnotherapy within mainstream medical environments.

Our interactions led to the exchange of ideas, discussions on the current dynamics of the hypnotherapy industry in Southeast Asia, and even proposals for co-hosting future hypnotherapy conferences in the coming years. The prospect of collaborative efforts in organizing such events is indeed thrilling!

Innovation Symposium on Brain-Computer Interfaces (Suzhou, China) - Guest Speaker to share about the application of Trauma-Informed Neurofeedback


一转眼,我已经提供脑波神经反馈训练neurofeedback training多达10多年了。在马来西亚,本来我是很孤独的,因为在这行的人实在不多,这个领域的专家也很少。但这几年,越来越多知音人出现,这个应用脑科学如今也被多国重点关注,亚洲各地都开始越来越多人重视脑机接口这一块。
In simple terms, I've been doing neurofeedback training for over 10 years. In Malaysia, it used to be quite lonely because not many people were into it. But in recent years, more people who understand it have shown up, and now several countries are paying serious attention to applying neuroscience.
Today, seeing top experts in China endorsing neurofeedback training, it really touched me.

APNA Asia Pacific 5th Neurofeedback Conference 2023 - Neurofeedback, Developmental Trauma, Special Education - Expert Panel and Paper Presenter

I’m proud to be one of the panelists and presenters for the APNA Neurofeedback Conference 2023. Our theme this year is all about neurofeedback, developmental trauma, and special education. I feel so good to be back in my hometown, Johor Bahru, to share knowledge about neurofeedback with the audience from all around the Asia Pacific Region. This marks my 10 years of practicing neurofeedback, and witnessing more and more young practitioners join the field sparks joy. I no longer feel alone when there are so many professionals such as clinical psychologists, counselors, psychotherapists, pediatricians, neurologists, child psychiatrists, hypnotherapists, and more who joined the conference this time. I notice the majority of us are shifting from a “machine”-oriented approach to a more “humanistic” one, attuning to individual needs. It really touches my heart to see these changes.

1st Malaysian International Integrative Healthcare Conference 2017 - Clinical Neurofeedback by Hiro Koo

Thanks the Medical University CUCMS for inviting me to share my knowledge in clinical neurofeedback training with all healers Who come from UK, Australia, India and other Asia Pacific Region countries. I am glad to be part of the experts here to provide effective intervention plans for children with special needs.

Special thanks to my psychology assistant for helping me today.

Title: Clinical Neurofeedback: Brain training for children with special needs  

Human brain can be trained at any age and new neurons are produced throughout our life. The term of neuroplasticity is well accepted nowadays. Clinical Neurofeedback is based on the concept of neuroplasticity that trains the brain like a muscle. Clinical Neurofeedback is the clinical application of EEG Biofeedback method. It can be applied to some diagnosed (mental) conditions such as (ADHD, Autism, Learning Difficulties, Tics Disorder, Mood Issues). Clinical Neurofeedback is a form of tailored to individual needs training procedure used by trained practitioners to optimize various brain functions. This is essentially a way of teaching individuals on how to self-regulate their own brainwaves. It is safe, non-invasive and painless. A case study will be discussed on how Clinical Neurofeedback helps a child who diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder to reduce his autism symptoms and improving executive functioning. Different brainwaves profile of the various disorders will be discussed as well. We will also discuss about how Clinical Neurofeedback can effectively regulate different brainwaves profile of children who diagnosed with ADHD or for those who are having similar brainwaves pattern in order to reduce the undesirable symptoms of ADHD. At last, the heart of the potential of Clinical Neurofeedback to help manage Tourette syndrome and tics disorder will be discussed too.
