About me

Hello. Thanks for taking a moment to read this.

If you're struggling with an issue at the moment I can guess how you feel; I had a problem for 10 years that doctors and other health 'experts' couldn't resolve. That was before I stumbled upon hypnotherapy and after just 2 sessions my symptoms disappeared.

I tell the full story in the free ebook on my website.

That personal experience prompted me to train as a hypnotherapist myself and since then I've helped hundreds of people just like you to make positive changes.

Read on to find out how I can help you with all emotional, psychological and even physical problems or go straight to my website and book your Free Discovery Session.

4 choices of therapy with me...

I practice hypnotherapy combined with tried and trusted psychotherapy methods, and mind coaching to help you make the changes you're looking for.

These take place in a variety of settings...

  1. In-person sessions at the Green Room in Stowmarket, Suffolk
  2. Online sessions via Zoom (ideal if you're some distance away from me or prefer working online)
  3. Telephone psychotherapy (perfect if you're not comfortable looking at yourself on a screen)
  4. Outdoor therapy (walk and talk therapy and nature therapy in the great outdoors in a variety of locations in Suffolk)

Call me on 07921 331707 or email me now to find out more.

About my practice and the issues I treat...

Whether in-person, over the phone, online, or outdoors, I practice Advanced Hypno-Psychotherapy, Mind Coaching, and Mentoring to treat...

  • Stress and anxiety disorders such as OCD, panic attacks, and PTSD
  • Other traumas, negative memories/flashbacks, bullying and abuse
  • Fears and phobias
  • Depression and low mood
  • Low confidence and self-esteem issues
  • Addictions (drugs, food, gambling, screen addiction, porn, sex, shopping etc.)
  • Sleep problems
  • Lack of motivation, procrastination and self-sabotage
  • Anger issues
  • Relationship and sexual problems
  • Loss of meaning and purpose in life
  • Grief and bereavement

Just before you contact me, you might like to know a little about my background...

I worked for Suffolk Social Services until my early thirties then decided on a career change after hypnotherapy resolved my ten-year problem.

I was initially trained by the Midlands Institute of Hypnotherapy in 2001, gaining 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 until 2007 and have since continued my professional development, most notably with the Human Givens Institute http://hgi.org.uk.

I am also qualified in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique).

I have recently completed my training as a hypnotherapy supervisor.

I see the work I do not only as hypnotherapy but as 'psychological mentoring' or what might be called 'mind-coaching' where you'll learn about your own psychological make-up and, more importantly, how to change it for the better!

I now have 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'd like to find out more about my hypnotherapy approach download a copy of my free ebook (from my website) that tells you how hypnosis resolved that ten-year problem of mine - in only two sessions.

And to start the process of making positive changes in your own life, book a Free Discovery Session. There's no obligation to book any paid sessions: it's just a chance for us to chat and for you to ask any questions about hypnosis and how I can help you feel better.

If you have any questions or would like to book your Free Discovery Session call me on 07921 331707 or email me from the button at the top of this page.

It would be a real privilege to work with you.

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.

Areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

Information about health conditions (*)

Hypnotherapy can 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 hypnotherapy.

Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with

  • Children's issues (fear of school, bullying, anger and 'meltdowns', nightmares, bed-wetting, lack of confidence, shyness, thumb sucking etc.)
  • Hypno-Healing (Mind-Body healing through hypnosis to speed up recovery from illness or operations)
  • 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 Supervision and Mentoring for other qualified hypnotherapists
  • Hypnosis downloads - recorded hypnosis sessions
  • Online self-development courses
  • Online therapy sessions
  • Nature therapy sessions
  • Hypnotherapy Supervision

Further information

Below is just a sample of some of the many testimonials that people have sent 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


“Before I came to see Gavin most of my time was spent checking things, from spiders in my bedroom, the oven being turned off to doors being locked, in the belief that if I did this checking, nothing bad would happen to me or my family. I had suffered with OCD for more than 20 years and the best decision I made was to come to see Gavin. I feel like a new woman!

"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

Maybe your story will be on here in the future? I wonder what you would say?
