About me

Hello there,

I’m a former journalist and writer (who knows a thing or two about stress, pressure and deadlines) and hold a BA (Hons) in journalism and sociology and an MSc in rational-emotive and cognitive behaviour therapy (RECBT). I also hold a diploma in clinical hypnosis and another (with distinction) in cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy.

I have been in practice, first as a hypnotherapist and later as a psychotherapist, since 2004 and can help you achieve your goals using clinical hypnotherapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) or a combination of the two therapies together.

Both are highly effective in the treatment of a wide range of problems, including addictions, anger management, anxiety disorders (including anxiety, OCD, panic, phobias and psychosexual dysfunction), depression, insomnia, stopping smoking, weight control, work-related stress management and more.

I've recently moved to Bristol and am very happy to be here. Previously, my practice was in Victoria, south west London. I also worked for the Royal Brompton Hospital (where I specialised in pain control and it’s associated distress).

I still work for the occupational health division of Medicentre (where I focus on trauma and work-related stress management) and am about to start working at The Priory.

I also see people via healthy charity, Anxiety UK, and through the National Smoking Cessation Institute (NSCI).

As well as my work as a therapist, I lecture on various courses at the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (www.cbttherapies.org.uk) and have written and presented my own specialist workshops on a variety of subjects.

I’m an accredited member of the British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) and a member (working towards accreditation) of both the Association of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (AREBT) and the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

As a former journalist, I still like to write, so I blog regular on my website and have written therapy articles for various magazines. Several magazines and newspapers have also interviewed me, including the Metro, Body Matters and the Daily Mail.

With CBT and hypnotherapy, I’ve helped hundreds of people to manage their problems and lead healthier, happier lives. I’d love to help you too.

I'm very happy to see people via Skype and FaceTime or over the phone. Please visit my website, www.danielfryer.com to find out more.

Thank you.

Member organisations


British Society of Clinical Hypnosis

The British Society of Clinical Hypnosis (BSCH) is a national professional body whose aim is to promote and assure high standards in the practice of hypnotherapy.

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

Pain control (including Cardiac Syndrome X, angina, tension headaches, migraine and referred pain).


Most therapies, £60 per one-hour session; except for smoking, £200 for a single one-and-a-half hour session. Telephone therapy and Skype therapy also available.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a hypnotherapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the hypnotherapist to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified


Mondays only (depending on availability)
