What is hypnotherapy (with English subtitle) ?


Our Unique Approach - Neuro-Hypnotherapy 

Our Unique Approach - Neuro-Hypnotherapy & Trauma-Informed Hypnotherapy (创伤知情催眠疗法): Neuro-hypnotherapy is a groundbreaking method that was first introduced in Malaysia by Dr. Hiro Koo (PhD) in 2013. This evidence-based practice harnesses the power of both qEEG technology and clinical hypnosis to enhance brainwave function safely and non-invasively. This painless procedure can help improve brainwave patterns by utilizing personalized trauma-informed hypnotherapy sessions, which are informed by the results of qEEG brain mapping assessments. The Neuro-hypnotherapy service combines a range of psychological therapy techniques, trauma-informed therapy, clinical hypnosis, and EEG biofeedback, offering a promising therapeutic option for optimizing brain health.

Our work focuses on mental health illness prevention in organizations. Mental illness prevention is categorized into three levels: universal, selective, and indicated prevention. Selective prevention specifically focuses on individuals or subgroups with a significantly higher risk of developing mental disorders due to biological, psychological, or social risk factors. In this context, selective prevention targets those who have experienced small "t" trauma, such as single-incident events like accidents or natural disasters, as well as complex trauma, involving multiple, chronic, and prolonged traumatic experiences. The Institute of Medicine report (Mrazek & Haggerty, 1994) outlines primary prevention strategies (e.g., traumatic stress awareness talk), secondary prevention (early detection of emotional or stress disturbances, teaching stress-coping skills), and tertiary prevention (e.g., non-clinical rehabilitation, enhancing executive functioning in the workplace). Trauma-informed hypnotherapists work within this preventive mental health framework to address the unique needs of individuals exposed to trauma, aiming to reduce the risk of developing or worsening mental health conditions.

 Process Flow


Misconceptions about Neuro-Hypnotherapy:

Definition and Description of Hypnosis?
According to APA-Division 30 Society of Psychological Hypnosis, 
  • Hypnosis: A state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.
  • Hypnotic induction: A procedure designed to induce hypnosis.
  • Hypnotizability: An individual's ability to experience suggested alterations in physiology, sensations, emotions, thoughts or behavior during hypnosis.
  • Hypnotherapy: The use of hypnosis in the treatment of a medical or psychological disorder or concern.

Myth 1: When you wake up from neuro-hypnotherapy, you won’t remember anything that happened when you were hypnotized. 
People generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. . 

Myth 2: You can be hypnotized against your will. 
Despite stories about people being hypnotized without their consent, neuro-hypnotherapy requires voluntary participation on the part of the patient. 

Myth 3: The hypnotherapist has complete control of your actions while you’re under neuro-hypnotherapy. 
While people often feel that their actions under neuro-hypnotherapy seem to occur without the influence of their will, a clinical hypnotherapist cannot make you perform actions that are against your values or morals. 

Myth 4: Many people wonder whether they can be hypnotized?
Generally speaking, every normal person is “hypnotizable.” Sufficient psychoeducation should be done before the actual therapy session.  

Myth 5: Is Neuro-hypnotherapy Magic?
Neuro-hypnotherapy is not magic. There is nothing supernatural about its practice, despite what some stage hypnotists might have you believe. Neuro-hypnotherapy should not be confused with stage hypnotism which is entertainment purpose.

Myth 6: Does Neuro-hypnotherapy work? 
Success rates can be between 85% and 90%+ better than CBT or traditional techniques.
According to the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis,
Home Study Self-Hypnosis : 2 – 5% success rate
Group Hypnosis Session: 2 – 5% success rate
Single Individual Session: 17 – 20% success rate
Three Individual Sessions: 45 – 50% success rate
Five or More Individual Sessions: 85 – 90% success rate 

Dr Alfred A. Barrios conducted a longitudinal survey of the psychotherapeutic literature and discovered the following success rates for hypnotherapy versus therapeutic methods:
Psychoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions 
Behavior Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions 
Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions 
The researchers also discovered that customizing and individualizing the sessions increased the effectiveness of the sessions dramatically.

Myth 7: What is dysautonomia (or autonomic dysfunction, autonomic neuropathy)?
The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is a component of the peripheral nervous system and is made up of two branches: the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The SNS controls the more active "fight or flight" responses such as increasing heart rate and blood pressure. The PNS can be thought of as the "rest and digest" part of the autonomic nervous system, as it slows down the heart rate and aids in digestion. Symptoms typically arise from unhealthy responses of either the sympathetic or parasympathetic systems based on situation or environment. We can help you to improve this concern by utilizing Neuro-hypnotherapy method.
