Hello. My name is Gavin Roberts and Human Spirit Hypnotherapy is the result of more than thirty years of personal and professional study, research and practice in mind-body healing and transformation.

I found my calling in life when two sessions of hypnotherapy cured my 10-year problem.

I’d like to share that story here but more importantly, I hope that my story inspires you to think that you can also make major changes in your life.

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. They have 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 at West Suffolk College in Bury St. Edmunds. Soon afterwards I 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. This life is a chance to do that: to break free of conditioning and become who you truly are – a better, wiser 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.

Since then, I have continued my studies with various training schools, most notably the Human Givens Institute, and Uncommon Knowledge.

I am also qualified in Energy Psychology (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and have recently completed my training in providing supervision for other hypnotherapists.

If you’re a hypnotherapist and are interested in supervision (in-person or online) please contact me or find out more on my resources for therapists pages.

Professional memberships

I am registered with the General Hypnotherapy Register – the largest register of hypnotherapists in the UK – and am listed in the Hypnotherapy Directory. I carry full public liability insurance.

Since the pandemic, some of my work is done online via Zoom. 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. That’s therapy for me!
