Roger Sleet – Obituary

 

Roger M Sleet  BA (Hons) Psych  FINT  GHR  SQHP  (1938 – 2015)

 

“Roger was a man who believed in miracles, created miracles, and trained others to believe the same.”

 

“Roger was such a large and kind presence to many.”

 

“He touched many peoples’ lives.”

“Roger was always so kind to all of us and so much fun to be around.”

 

“I genuinely feel that his no nonsense approach and strongly held views on training will also be a loss to the wider hypnotherapy community.”

 

“Roger had many hardships during his lifetime but he will continue to be remembered for his humour, wit and intelligence, and the fact that his heart was always to help people who had problems.”

 

“The difficulties Roger had as a child and then as an adult developed a compassion within him and a desire to help others with problems, and so he became a hypnotherapist.”

 

“He has always seemed such a giant in so many ways – kind, amusing, intelligent, generous – quite  a super-hero.”

 

Roger M. Sleet was one of the most experienced and respected Hypnotherapists in the UK and a dedicated tutor and supportive mentor. He qualified as a psychologist but had forsaken his membership of the British Psychological Society in favour of what he considered to be the more effective and powerful techniques of real Hypnotherapy.

 

A pioneer in many new approaches, and new techniques, he was the first hypnotherapist to be used by the police in a murder enquiry in the UK. He has also worked alongside UN psychiatrists and has written books on Hypnotherapy.

 

During the late 1980s he worked more and more with cancer cases and developed powerful techniques which proved to be very successful.  When he retired as a practising therapist, he turned to training and helped many people from all walks of life become very effective Hypnotherapists. A former tutor at Sheffield University, Roger had many years experience in teaching complex subjects in his own straightforward, down-to-earth way.  Technical jargon was always kept to a minimum and everything was always explained clearly and simply.

 

A true renaissance man, he drew clever cartoons as a young man and developed his skills as an artist and painter in later life. He played the harmonica in a band and also performed on the vibraphone, guitar and keyboard.

 

He is sorely missed.
