Gavin Roberts - Advanced Hypno-Psychotherapist
Hello. Thanks for taking a moment to read my profile. I hope you're keeping well during these uncertain times.
Even though my offices in Stowmarket and Colchester remain closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, I can offer you Online Therapy Sessions (including a free 20 minute 'taster').
There's more info about this on my website. Please read it now - just click the button to my website and find the 'online therapy' page in the menu or email me to find out more.
About my practice and the issues I treat..
Whether in-person or online, I practice Advanced Hypno-Psychotherapy, Mind Coaching, and Mentoring to treat...
- Stress and anxiety
- PTSD and other traumas
- Addictions (drugs, food, gambling, screen addiction, porn, sex, shopping etc.)
- Weight loss and emotional eating and eating disorders
- Fears, phobias, panic attacks
- Depression and low mood
- Sleep problems
- Anger issues
- Relationship and sexual problems
- Low confidence and self-esteem
Because hypnosis accesses nature's optimal learning state (the REM state) I use it not only to help solve everyday problems, but to also unlock your potential and awaken your soul so that life feels richer and more meaningful.
There's more about this on my website and in my free ebook, 'What You Need to Know about Hypnosis and Trance'.
Before just before you contact me, you might like to know a little about my background...
I worked for Social Services for over 12 years where I assisted people with learning difficulties and others with mental health problems in a variety of settings.
I was initially trained in hypnotherapy by the Midlands Institute of Hypnotherapy in 2001 and hold diplomas in Professional Hypnotherapy, Hypno-analysis and Regression.
I then trained with SACH (School of Analytical and Cognitive Hypnotherapy) at Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford from 2004 till 2007 and have since continued my professional development, most notably with the Human Givens Institute http://hgi.org.uk.
This eclectic training enables me to tailor my approach to you as an individual so I can do brief, solution-focused therapy or transpersonal (spiritual) therapy, depending on your needs. (You might want to just sort a problem, or explore the deeper aspects of your life).
I am also qualified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) http://www.eftuniverse.com.
I see the work I do not only as therapy but as 'psychological mentoring' or what might be called 'mind-coaching', (the kind of stuff we should have been taught in school) where you'll learn about your own psychological make-up and how to change it!
This makes my approach perfect for Online Therapy Sessions. See it as therapy combined with psycho-spiritual education to help you feel so much better about yourself and your place in the world.
I have nearly 20 years' experience and am a member of the GHR (General Hypnotherapy Register), which is the largest hypnotherapy register of practitioners in the UK http://www.general-hypnotherapy-register.com/
If you have any questions call me on 07921 331707 or email me from the button at the top of this page.
Or if you'd like to find out more about my approach, - and how hypnosis cured me of a 10-year problem in only two sessions - download the free ebook from my website.
It will be an honour and privilege to work with you.

The General Hypnotherapy Register
Hypnotherapists may become members of the General Hypnotherapy Register if they satisfy certain criteria with regard to both training and ongoing requirements as determined from time to time by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council (GHSC).
Members are either registered at Practitioner status (which confirms that the GHR acknowledges their qualification to practice), or Affiliate status. Although Affiliate level registrants will have completed a sufficient number of training hours to equip them to commence seeing clients on a limited basis, the GHR does not acknowledge them to have yet been trained to full practitioner level.
All GHR Registered Practitioners are required to accept the published Code of Ethics and Complaints & Disciplinary Procedure.
Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Information about health conditions (*)
Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.
Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
- Children's issues (fear of school, bullying, nightmares, bed-wetting, lack of confidence, shyness, thumb sucking etc.)
- Hypno-Healing (Mind-Body healing through hypnosis)
- Transpersonal/Spiritual Hypnotherapy to awaken your soul, find more meaning and purpose in your life and reconnect to something greater than yourself, whether you call it God, the Great Spirit, the Universe, the Tao
- Professional Mentoring for newly qualified hypnotherapists
- Hypnosis downloads - recorded sessions
- Online self-development courses
- Online therapy sessions

Below is just a sample of some testimonials that people have given me over the years. There are many more on my website.
"I just wanted to say that the work I have done with Gavin has changed my life. I feel free for the first time and really positive. I came for help with weight loss but found my problem was deeper in the past. I have now lost over 4 stone and its thanks to your hypnotherapy I am where I am today." S.L. Stowmarket
"I started smoking at 13, and despite numerous attempts down the years to quit using various methods, I was unsuccessful for any length of time. At 36 I decided it was high time I stopped, so I turned to hypnotherapy. After one session with you, I no longer had the urge to smoke, or even to pick up a cigarette. I experienced none of the usual withdrawal symptoms or cravings, and found it very easy to stop." C.W., Stowmarket
"I just needed to write and tell you how well I am doing, all thanks to you...I no longer have painful memories of a very unhappy and abusive childhood...with your help I have become much more assertive and confident. I am far less angry with the world now...I have gone through a LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE...I now feel six feet tall and able to deal with any situation that comes my way without the need of alcohol or comfort eating...thank you so much." B.G. Stowmarket
ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
"I was suffering with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I heard about hypnotherapy and decided to give it a try. Gavin made me feel completely at ease and after several sessions (5) I feel back in control of my life. Many thanks." N.H. Stowmarket
"A huge thankyou to Gavin for his professional help and support; after just a few hypnosis sessions my perspective on life is now very positive and rewarding; the fears and anxieties are in the past, enabling me to enjoy life with enthusiasm." S.G. Stowmarket
