Roger Gilbert MA (Cantab), D Hyp (Distinction) PDCHyp, MBSCH
Contact me for help with stress management, phobias, fears and anxiety, smoking cessation and much more.
Over the years I have helped people with all kinds of problems - including quitting smoking, phobias of many different kinds, fear of flying, bereavement, addiction to prescription drugs, exam nerves, public speaking, weight loss, addiction to alcohol and gambling, social phobia, insomnia, confidence building, and stress management.
For most issues, my sessions last an hour and a quarter which gives me time to talk to you and tailor the session to your precise needs. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the nature of the issue.
For smoking cessation, the session lasts about two and a half hours and the price includes a free "top up" if needed within a month.

After leaving Cambridge University, I trained as a lawyer and I practised as a solicitor for over thirty years. I have been a full time hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner for the last two years, having helped people with these skills on a part time basis since 1993.
I first became involved in the therapy field in 1985 as a client. This gave me a deep understanding of counselling and therapy from the perspective of the client and it was as a result of these experiences that I realised that I wanted to help other people.
I trained in Neuro-linguistic programming and then hypnotherapy because these seemed - and still seem - to me to be the quickest and most successful routes to help people to make changes in the way they think, feel and behave, and to get the most out of life.
Recently, I have trained as an mBit coach and as a Havening Techniques practitioner.
Qualifications and experience
I started training as a counsellor in 1988, obtaining a certificate in counselling skills from Park Lane College, Leeds. After that I studied Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) obtaining a practitioner certificate in 1990, a second practitioner certificate in 1992, and a master practitioner certificate in 1992. I later trained as a hypnotherapist with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and qualified with distinction in 1998. I have been a full member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis since 2001. I have attended many additional short trainings over the years.
From 1993 to 2000 I was a volunteer student counsellor for Leeds Metropolitan University and since 2000 I have been a volunteer hypnotherapist for Anxiety UK (formerly the Phobics Society).
Over the years I have played an active part in the therapy field in Leeds - putting on short courses in NLP and related subjects, running an NLP practice group from 1993 to 2000, and running a resource group for hypnotherapists and NLP practitioners from 2001 to date. During 2013 and 2014 I undertook further training in NLP and gained a second master practitioner certificate in July 2014.
In November 2014 I successfully completed training as an mBit coach (Multiple Brain Integration Technologies) - a powerful approach which ensures that your heart, head and gut instincts are all aligned and working together.
In August 2016, I became a certified practitioner of Havening Techniques.
I also run laughter workshops from time to time!
I am happy to come and give talks to groups about hypnotherapy or NLP.
I have made a very well received CD on sleeping well which I will be happy to send to you for £10 inclusive of postage and packing.
I run a successful group of conservation volunteers and play the ukulele!
