(Event) Mental Health Webinar: Managing Social Anxiety


Just gave a mental health promotion talk on how to manage social anxiety. 

I shared my doctoral study findings regarding the prevalence of anxiety issues and subclinical mental health concerns surrounding the topic of anxiety, which is also the focus of my PhD thesis. 

At the end of the workshop, the participants gave positive reviews about the talk. The majority of them found the topic helpful, and I heard that some of them hope for more topics related to hypnotherapy, which is my area of expertise. 

I also received feedback that my personal experience of having social anxiety symptoms also helped them to relate to these symptoms better. This really made my day, as I hope more people can start to become aware of their body-mind symptoms, which could be the first step toward healing. 

I would like to thank the clinical psychologist trainees here and the master's students in clinical psychology from USM-UPSI for initiating this project and organizing the talk. I hope more people become aware of the benefits of hypnotherapy in managing anxiety symptoms.

[Review] Trauma-Informed Intervention for the Anxiety, Fear, Depression and Medically Unexplained Symptoms - Miss CT


感谢Hiro让我找到了自己!在还没有来到NEW MIND BRAIN HEALTH CENTRE的时候,我总是感到特别焦虑,忧郁,害怕,心里总会莫名感到害怕,脑子里总有千万个担心,也发现到自己对很多事情都越来越无感,似乎没有特别的感觉,感觉自己特别无能没用,也常觉得自己做的不够好,甚至觉得自己的存在很多余,有着轻生的念头,随着情绪的不稳定,身体也渐渐越来越多毛病,整天都感觉全身上下都不舒服,有一段时间又突然天天头晕,做什么都感到无力,只想睡觉,当然也去见了心理医生(精神科),但是服用药物之后,情况一直也没有好转。

直到通过朋友的介绍来做了脑电波检测(Brain Mapping Assessment)后就决定接受Hiro的治疗,很感谢缘分让我来到这里,找到了自己,通过整个疗程让我更清楚了,了解自己情绪的根源,也知道自己活着的意义,不像以前那样总是感到焦虑恐惧了,当然最重要的是学会了当情绪来临时该怎么处理好,从中也学会了人与人之间的底线,自我的权力,觉知,真正的爱自己,聆听自己的内心声音,保护好自己的内心

[Review] 马来西亚创伤导向催眠治疗改善情绪与脑雾问题Emotional and Brain Fog Treatment Malaysia - F Case


As far as my memory recalls, at the age of 7 I was exposed to family violence, verbal abuse, emotional and physical neglects. Growing up very unhappy, filled with anger, frustrations, emotional turmoil, lack of confidence, low self esteem and rebel. When I was 18, I have suspected myself on the road to bipolar and depression but it did not affect my academic performance thus I went on to University studies, got into relationship and started working after graduate.

In the third year of my working life one day there is a snapping sound in the brain, and I started to have blank memories, difficulty to recall daily task, foggy mind, nausea, it affects my daily functioning of talking, thinking, recalling could not function normal at work, and almost lose the ability of self-management. At the same time my beloved grandpa passed on and the break of a 7-year romantic relationship got me into a total breakdown.

I am emotionally unstable, either crying, mood down, agitated or scolding. Little hiccups/small issue can trigger my anger.

At that moment, I also have symptoms of confusion, unable to recall things where is my keys? Where did I park my car? What was the conversation 1 min ago? I can only function with the help of mobile phone by referring to recorded communication on whatsapp, email and sms.

I think very slowly, slow to react and slow in giving responses to external stimulation. Feeling drowsy day and night, I only want to sleep and have no interest in daily activities including hobbies. No urge to explore new areas, meet new people and learn new skills.

This condition have lasted for a year and when I started a new job it was very hard to focus, my mind is always pull to elsewhere, there are voices in the head asking to jump off from the building. One day my colleague introduces Hiro Koo from Brain Health Centre. He is a certified psychotherapist with effective track records and continuous learning, last meeting with Hiro he is in the progress of PHD studies. That was April 2021. I started with brainwave scan to get an overview of my brain condition and continue with 6 sessions with Hiro Koo. On the first and second sessions my emotions got stabilized, without crying and scolding but my mind still in a floating state. Third sessions onwards the mind began to be intact for once and the brain mind slowly back in 1 piece and Hiro has taught on many coping skills and important techniques to protect the healthy state of mind. Setting up personal boundaries, nothing bad to ask for help just to mention few techniques among the many Hiro has taught on.


Last session on 20 Aug 2021, I have achieved 80% of clearing childhood trauma, hurts and 50% recovery on memory, brain functioning, 50% of happiness and counting on. The road to recovery was a blend of religious faith, physical exercise, sufficient Vitamin supplements and very important that Hiro’s consultation is a boost on top of all these. His set of therapy session gives a clear direction, is effective and result- oriented. In the short period of 4 months I am able to have fast recovery on cognitive functioning, stable emotions, better focus, increased confidence level, healthier self esteem plus point with new skills and techniques on interpersonal / romantic relationships and communication. His consultation was reasonable priced and it was a good investment on self. Should I not meet Hiro, I would have even lost my current job!

Big thank you to Hiro and team, his other consultants are professional and informative, admin staff are warm and friendly. Hiro is also a good choice to working professional who are facing daily work stress and relationship difficulty. Highly recommended and SAFE! Take Care and continue your passion.

[Review] 马来西亚临床催眠治疗改善忧郁与焦虑症症状Depression and Anxiety Treatment Malaysia - Ms W Case


I have been suffering from insomnia, anxiety and depression since the beginning of 2020. I started losing my interest in life, being unhappy every day and afraid to fall asleep as I know I’m an insomniac. Insomnia is really awful, I would have no energy and low concentration to carry out daily activities and my temperament deteriorated. Then, I began to accept psychological treatment in May and have tried a variety of ways to improve my problems, yet, my conditions seem to have no improvement. I once saw New Mind and Mr. Hiro’s hypnotherapy treatment on Facebook, and I decided to try it. After 12 sessions of mind training (clinical neurofeedback) and 6 sessions of hypnotherapy, I realized my conditions started to change gradually and getting better within the 6 months, which include the issue of insomnia, personality and thoughts. I’m very pleased as I will always learn a lot of new ideas and information from Mr. Hiro’s hypnotherapy session. I’m sincerely grateful for him and his team. I hope that I would be able to slowly get rid of the medicines prescribed by other psychiatrists.

** Please note that the hypnotherapy provided by New Mind doesn’t require any medication, so there will be no side effects.
