Cognitive behaviour therapist and clinical hypnotherapist: Daniel Fryer

A former journalist and writer (so he knows a thing or two about stress, pressure and deadlines), Daniel holds a BA (Hons) in journalism and sociology and an MSc in rational-emotive and cognitive behaviour therapy. He also holds a diploma in clinical hypnosis and another (with distinction) in cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy. He offers CBT and hypnotherapy, either separately or combined, and also teaches on courses at the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies.

Daniel FryerHello there, I’m a cognitive behavior therapist, clinical hypnotherapist and life coach, here to help you achieve your goals. I’ve been in private practice since 2004 and moved to Bristol from London in January 2016.

Previously, I held a private practice in central London, where I typically helped people deal with their anxiety disorders and work stress issues. I also worked for the Royal Brompton Hospital (where I specialised in the treatment of chronic pain and its associated emotional problems).

I also work for a major healthcare company, where I help people deal with trauma and work-related stress.

A lecturer and trainer, I also teach CBT and hypnotherapy at the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies in London and Bath and have written and presented my own specialist workshops on a variety of topics.

Having an experienced, trained professional offer you a safe and non-judgmental space in which to explore and manage your life issues can provide immense relief and is often instrumental in helping you regain control.

People often value the clear concise, solution-focused frameworks offered by CBT and hypnotherapy.

I’m an accredited member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) and the National Hypnotherapy Society and a non-accredited member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

CBT follows the philosophy that it is not the events in life that disturb you, but what you tell yourself about those events that disturbs you. So, if you’re thinking, feeling and acting in a way that you don’t like, but don’t seem to be able to change, it’s not because of the ‘thing’ (no matter how much of an influence it may be), but down to what you are telling yourself about that thing. Change what it is that you tell yourself, and you change how you think, feel and act.

I’ve helped hundreds of people make those changes, enabling them to either manage their problems more effectively or let go of them completely. I’d love to help you too. Although I have experience in treating a wide range of emotional and behavioural problems, I have a special interest in the following areas:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Anger management
  • Work-related stress
  • Addictions
  • Confidence issues
  • Chronic pain
  • Insomnia
  • Psychosexual dysfunction

I am happy to see people face-to-face or via Skype/FaceTime and over the phone.
