Where to find Hypnosis or Hypnotherapy in Malaysia?

I’ve come across this question three days in a row, of people asking for hynotherapist in Klang Valley or Kuala Lumpur or Malaysia.

All the while I never really mentioned to people that I’ve a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (accredited by the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy), especially ever since I came back from the UK. I thought the Malaysians would hold so many misconceptions about hypnosis that if I were to tell people about this qualification of mine, people were going to be worried what I was going to do to them! (Make them give me all their savings?!)

But these people that I spoke to kind of change what I thought, although some of their beliefs of what hypnosis can do are still not quite true or slightly exaggerated (based on my training background of evidence-based cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy & clinical psychology).

Here I’d like to introduce a few basic introductory (text) books to self-hypnosis, mainly cognitive behavioural based and empirically supported, you can learn more about them and perhaps try to practise them at home, do let me know if you have come up with any problems or obstacles. Not that I’ll definitely be able to answer all your questions BUT I do know a number of therapists in the UK who use hypnosis to help people in their own private clinics.

Straus, R. A. (1982). Strategic Self-Hypnosis.

(The Alladin’s and Lynn & Kirsch’s text books are easy to understand, especially when you have some backgrounds in psychology or practicing self-help; The Robertson’s book is the most extensive resources on CBH you can ever find!)

  1. 1.Please let me know, as a registered hypnotherapist, are you able to cure drug addiction .

    3.Please provide your direct contact phone number & address

    1. Hi Durai, hypnotherapists do deal with addictions, but it does depend on what type or what drug it is in this case. The success rates quite often depend on the individuals instead of what treatments used. There is more things that I need to know before I can give you more concrete answers.

      I have sent an email to you regarding possible treatment plans and my contacts.

    1. Thank you for your visit to my site.

      No offence – I’m not familiar with NLP training and sorts, but after a short exploration on your site, I have yet to find out by who/what/where all the qualifications are accredited and licensed. I have no intention to cause any suspicions in my readers, but a clarification would be helpful to the visitors of your site, since people nowadays are generally quite critical. :)

  2. Hi I am currently going thru lots of financial issue…most of time unable to succeed in my sales due to the way I think…pls I need help

  3. I’m feeling negative, no confidence & demotivated when it comes to my career. How can this help me to overcome?

  4. Greetings,

    I have motivation/procrastination issues and am curious if hypnotherapy can be of help. Please include rates in your reply.
    Thanks.

  5. I am Practitioner of NLP , Certified NLP Coach and Hypnotist from Pakistan. I am looking for some organization to work with in KL. My no is 016590714

    1. Hey Bhanisha, hypnotherapy and psychotherapy would definitely help in dealing with painful and unpleasant memories, though not necessarily removing the memory completely from one’s mind, but letting go of it.

      I’ve just sent you an email, please check it out.

  6. hello, does hypnotherapy work for bad habits/addiction eg thumb sucking for adults. Im suffering from this and I really want to stop.

  7. Hi, I’d really like to cure my poor vision and stop my usage of glasses completely. (which i’ve been having for more than a decade now) found out i cant do lasik eye surgery as my eyeballs are too thin hence have no other option. will hypnotherapy help to get 20/20 vision? tq

    1. Hey Vie, there has been studies on combining hypnosis with some carefully selected exercises did improve one’s eyesight. However, I wouldn’t believe if any hypnotherapist claims that they can restore your 20/20 vision! Also most of the improvement the cases have made was not permanent, i.e. the severity of myopia returned after few months or so.

      On a side note, if you do find any relevant “professional services”, please do share it here, I’d be more than happy to go through the qualifications and perhaps tell you whether it’s going to work. If it will, perhaps we can go together, I’ve been wearing glasses for almost two decades now!
