i wouldnt think there would be a way to do this.. of course i can definetly be wrong though.
the purpose of linux is to have the kernel to control the hardware.. and have TONS of tiny programs to do 'one task, and do it well'. the purpose of ps is to list all running processes. it wouldnt be doing its job if it didnt list the ps process which you run.
edit: :O after briefly browsing the man page (the above was a guess, and i guess this is too as im not in linux to test) look at all the options.. you might be able to use a combination of the '--deselect' option along with the -C option to list only a certain command name.. i dunno, test it out, or fool around with it. good luck.
