Rob Woodgate

Rob is a fully qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and NLP Master Practitioner trained by the internationally acclaimed Quest Institute and also holds a Diploma in Clinical Hypnosis from the Psychotherapy and Hypnosis Training Academy (PHTA).

Rob also holds the Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (HPD) which is the first nationally accredited hypnotherapy qualification, awarded by the NCFE National Awarding Body

He is a member of the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) who promotes the highest standard of training and professional ethics amongst its members. He is also CNHC Registered and has also trained with leading sports psychologist, Dr Karl Morris as a certified Mind Factor Coach.

Rob was the Editor of The Hypnotherapy Journal, the flagship publication of the NCH, and a leading professional publication read by over 1800 hypnotherapists in the UK alone from 2006 – 2011 and was an active voluntary contributor to the NCH for over 5 years during the transition of the profession into voluntary self regulation.

He finally retired from the NCH board after revitalising the Continuing Professional Development programme, and was awarded a fellowship of the NCH in a ceremony at the Royal Society of Medicine in November 2011, in recognition of his significant contributions to the hypnotherapy profession.

Having originally trained and worked in a blue chip corporate IT environment, Rob is no stranger to the stresses of modern life. He now dedicates his life to helping others move forward in their lives, from his base in Gravesend, Kent.

Rob has a down to earth, relaxed and friendly personality and works well with people from all walks of life. Rob uses a mixture of Cognitive Hypnotherapy and NLP techniques to tailor sessions to the clients individual needs, rather than using ‘one-size-fits-all’ scripts.

Outside work, Rob is a keen sailor and loves taking his family out for adventures in the Solent.
