Want to become a Professional Hypnotherapist?

Hypnotherapy is a very practical tool for therapy and can be applied not only to oneself but also to help others overcome psychological issues. If you are considering becoming a hypnotherapist, you have come to the right place.

The NGH Certified Hypnotherapist Certificate Course offered by Mind Matters Academy covers all the foundations of hypnotherapy.  Our syllabus combines Vincent's experience in counseling and mental health first aid over the years, with the latest updates from international medical conferences and journals, to ensure that students can integrate theory into practice and become professional therapists who can help themselves and others.


In addition to providing the complete NGH course content, Mind Matters Academy also incorporates Vincent's unique experiences and insights in clinical hypnotherapy, counseling, and as a litigation lawyer, to ensure that each student can accurately grasp the client's actual psychological state and the true underlying causes of their difficulties, in order to develop the best treatment plan.

Professional Knowledge 

Accurate and up-to-date information is also essential. As a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health and a member of the Royal Society of Medicine in the UK, Vincent regularly reviews medical and international public health journals to ensure that students receive the latest medical information related to hypnotherapy.

Teaching Philosophy

Vincent's teaching philosophy is based on Active and Collaborative Learning, which is promoted by higher education institutions, including the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In addition to teaching and demonstrating hypnotherapy skills, the most important part of the program is the small group practice and effective feedback sharing among students. As hypnotherapy is a highly practical tool, we believe that the most effective way to learn hypnotherapy is through practice.

Caring for Society

In addition to focusing on hypnotherapy research, Vincent is also very concerned about food safety issues. According to statistics, more than 1.6 million people in Hong Kong, out of a population of over 7.4 million, live below the poverty line and may face food insecurity. To help them, Mind Matters Academy donates 100 meals to the Foodlink Foundation for every student who enrolls in our courses. Through this program, we hope to encourage our students to join us in embracing the spirit of "Self-Help & Help Others".

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: What is Hypnosis?

Answer: Throughout history, hypnosis has always given people a sense of mystery.  Some people believe that hypnosis is a kind of black magic that controls people's minds and deprives them of their consciousness. Others believe that hypnosis only works for the weak-minded. In fact, hypnosis is just a tool to unleash the potential within a person. It allows the hypnotised person to communicate with their subconscious and improve their psychological state, achieving breakthroughs in everyday life.


At a recent online seminar held by the Royal Medical Society, we discussed the use of hypnosis as a means of helping clients with depression to overcome their condition. During the seminar, some scholars suggested that patients with depression may not be mentally prepared to relax in order to enter a hypnotic state, as they may have been in a heightened state of alertness for a prolonged period of time. At first, this argument sounds reasonable, as many people believe that the primary requirement for hypnosis is a relaxed state of mind. However, as we further explored the definition of hypnosis, we arrived at an interesting conclusion: Clients with depression (especially those who are also struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder) are actually the true masters of self-hypnosis.


Simply put, hypnosis is like experiencing a dream. As the subconscious mind becomes more receptive to hypnotic suggestions, the senses of the person undergoing hypnosis (or self-hypnosis) are more likely to be dominated by their inner world, temporarily disregarding the sensations of the real world.


Returning to the topic of clients with depression and PTSD, despite their loss of interest in things around them and their tendency to overlook details in life, once their pain is triggered, their traumatic experience is likely to be replayed in their minds to the finest details, causing the client to relive the pain all over again. Isn't this essentially a hypnotic state?


Some might ask: "Well, then isn't hypnosis very dangerous?"


In fact, hypnosis is but a natural state and has no positive or negative connotation. Whether it is positive or negative depends entirely on the psychological state of the person involved. For example, if you had a very pleasant dream last night and woke up this morning still savoring the experience, even being lost in that sweet feeling in the afternoon, how would you describe that as a form of self-hypnosis? Alternatively, if you have received recognition for your abilities in a certain area and your self-image is in an excellent state, and you are able to immediately return to a state of mental and physical excellence when needed (such as during a public speech), how would you feel about that?

Question: Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Answer: Hypnotherapy, as the name suggests, involves inducing a hypnotic state and then conducting psychological or physical therapy. In fact, hypnosis has been recognized as a form of psychotherapy in Europe and the United States since the 1950s.


In recent years, both Harvard Medical School and Stanford University School of Medicine in the United States have conducted research on hypnotherapy and found that in addition to significant effects on phobias, low self-esteem, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, stress, smoking, colitis, headaches, and high blood pressure, hypnosis also appears to aid in the recovery of bone fracture patients. Researchers found that bone fracture patients who received hypnosis suggestions recovered about 30% faster than those who did not receive hypnosis suggestions. Although the study only covered a small number of cases, it has shown a potential correlation between the two. From a medical perspective, this is definitely a breakthrough.
