Hello. My name is Gavin Roberts and I’ve been a practicing hypnotherapist for over 20 years.
On this page I’d like to tell you a little bit about my practice – Human Spirit Hypnotherapy – and share my personal story about how hypnosis cured my 10-year problem in just two sessions.
More importantly, I hope that my story inspires you to believe that hypnotherapy can also help you to make some positive changes.
How hypnotherapy cured my 10-year problem
Imagine having a problem that you struggle with for years on end. You wonder what caused it in the first place, find ways to cope with it, and all the time question if it will ever get better. That was me for over a decade.
I’d tried all manner of therapies to no avail. Then I stumbled upon a hand-written advert in a shop window where a trainee hypnotherapist was looking for ‘guinea pigs’.
Two sessions later, my symptoms began to disappear. Within a week they had completely gone and they never returned – and that was over 20 years ago.
I tell the story in full – and disclose what my problem was – in my free ebook. Grab your copy now and find out how hypnosis can also help you.
My background and interests
I’ve been passionate about self-development since my late teens and have studied psychology, hypnosis, shamanism, mysticism, mythology, dreams, altered states of consciousness, meditation and psychedelics.
In my twenties I studied Psychology and Sociology and soon afterwards started working for Suffolk Social Services where I helped people with mental health problems and learning disabilities for over a decade.
I’ve always believed that we’re not the finished article and that humanity is still evolving. The type of therapy I offer is a chance for you to break free from old conditioning and become who you truly are – a better, wiser, and happier human being.
This attitude underpins everything I do as a therapist.
My hypnotherapy training
After hypnotherapy cured my ten-year problem I knew I had to learn how to do this for others.
I got my first qualification in professional hypnotherapy in 2001 with the Midlands Institute of Hypnotherapy and set up my practice in 2002.
My skills were further developed through training at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford from 2004 to 2007 with the School of Analytical and Cognitive Hypnotherapy where I gained qualifications in Advanced Hypnotherapy, Hypnoanalysis and Integrative Psychotherapy.
I am also qualified in Energy Psychology (Emotional Freedom Techniques). This eclectic training enables me to offer brief, solution-focused therapy or more in-depth ‘spiritual’ hypnotherapy.
In 2020 I completed my training in providing supervision for other hypnotherapists.
I am registered as a Senior Practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Register – the largest register of hypnotherapists in the UK – overseen by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council that ensures I adhere to professional ethics and code of practice.
I carry full public liability insurance.
Please note: my public liability insurance doesn’t cover me to work one-to-one with people in the USA and Canada. Both these countries have different licensing regulations that require therapists to hold specific qualifications.
Hypnotherapy sessions – in Stowmarket, online, or out in nature
My office for in-person sessions is at The Green Room in Stowmarket, Suffolk (just a two minute walk from the station if you’re coming by train).
Since the pandemic, some of my therapy and supervision work is done online. You can find out more about online hypnotherapy here. This is perfect if you live some distance from me.
I also offer outdoor therapy sessions which include a mix of ‘walk and talk’ therapy, deep immersions in nature, and walking the labyrinth.
When I’m not busy with clients or supervising other hypnotherapists, I love travelling in my old motorhome (which is a form of therapy for me!)
You can read about my van life adventures and road trips at motorhomehobos.com.
If you’d like to find out more about hypnotherapy (or hypnotherapy supervision) just call or text me on 07921 331707 or contact me via email. I welcome all questions and enquiries. (Just to say that I don’t take calls or answer emails/texts at weekends). I always aim to get back to you within 48 hours.
If you’re curious but uncertain please check out the Free Discovery Session I offer to anyone who would like to know more. It’s a chance for us to chat (online or over the phone) where you can tell me what you’d like to change and ask any questions about hypnotherapy and the way I work.
I look forward to connecting with you and it would be a real privilege to help you make some positive changes in your life.
