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 practice online and in my clinic in Bristol. I also work for the Priory Hospital Bristol. I previously ran successful practices in Central London and was hired as a specialist by the Royal Brompton Hospital and a private healthcare company.

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 the author of a self-help therapy book based on rational emotive behaviour therapy (out now from Penguin Random House imprint, Vermillion) and I write regularly for Psychology Today and other media. I also speak regularly on mental health and wellbeing topics.

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.

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).
