Talking therapy to help you
Triumph over Trauma
Big or small, trauma is tough. Many people struggle, often for years, not knowing the tools to overcome it. Often leading to personal, professional and social difficulties. Most people wouldn’t think of talking with a psychologist as: “What can they do to help with a car accident?” Or: “What could they do to help with a difficult childhood?”
If you are in this boat, please be reassured, hundreds of clients have learnt tools and returned to calm, confident driving. Have connected, fulfilling relationships with a partner. Able to fit in at work and be productive. And much more.
Trauma often is covered by the ‘stuff’ of life. People walk around feeling anxious or depressed not knowing how come? Just a little openness is required to uncover the trauma. Then through a safe professional relationship with me, skills are learnt and practiced leading to the life/relationships you want and deserve.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I was referred to CBT due to an event out-with my control, and I must admit that I literally had no idea of what CBT was or what benefits that I would be able to take from it. The first session was a real eye opener and a testament to how Daniel can recognise a need for reassurance and be mindful of when someone wants to speak and when someone wants to listen which is a phenomenal talent to have, and one that cannot be taught.
By the second session I was very curious and started to research what CBT is and how it can be beneficial for a host of different things. The most important element of the sessions was being able to have Daniel allow me to see and realise what I needed by asking the right questions and not simply telling me what I wanted to hear.
I am at the end of the sessions with Daniel, but at the start of many great things, a new career opportunity that I have swayed about for years that I have decided to “just go for it”. My home life is great and the relationship that I have with my family is better than ever.
Daniel didn’t make all that happen for me, he simply gave me the tools to reassure myself, to love myself and to trust myself. To trust that whatever choices that I make, that I don’t need to be in control, that I can allow nature to run it’s course and that I am ready to adapt to change and be able to react should I need to.
CBT is a phenomenal process that can really give you back either, what you have lost or what you are looking for. Looking at the different variations of CBT, there does appear to be 2 differing types. The structured and text-book style that is completely fine and the variation that looks at different techniques outside the norm’.
The text-book style is completely fine for some people, but I must say, that exploring different techniques meant that Daniel was able to draw on his vast experience and offer therapies that were tailored to my needs and not just a one-size-fits-all. CBT has applications that can help anyone, for literally any life stage. If you are stuck in a rut, feel like Groundhog Day would be a good snapshot of your day-to-day life then I would urge you to challenge yourself and reach out to someone that can allow you to take control and unleash the potential that we all have, and be better versions of ourselves.
I was involved in a serious traffic accident that left me with multiple physical injuries. While in the majority my physical injuries have healed, with the help of doctors, specialists and exercise, a less obvious impact after the accident was the psychological impact it had had on me and my life. I had recurring dreams of the accident and found I had an anxiety towards certain situations of stress. As a father of young children and a working professional, life was so busy I was struggling to understand why my mood was low and I couldn’t find the enjoyment I previously had had. I was recommended to attend CBT sessions, which is where I was introduced to Daniel. I must say I was sceptical of the outcome of the CBT sessions, but Daniel’s patience and expertise led me on a journey of realisation, acceptance and healing that has literally changed my life far beyond the original purpose of attending CBT. I’m now more aware of my mental health and thanks to Daniel I have the practises to help me through all of life’s challenges. I couldn’t recommend him enough.
I have completed nine CBT therapy sessions with Daniel Hadjiandreou. I just want to say that his help was invaluable and I would recommend him as a CBT therapist to anyone.
The sessions enabled me to talk openly about my challenges and he responded by giving me the CBT advice which enabled me to start addressing the challenges I faced.
I felt very comfortable and safe in his company, and he was both very patient and professional.
I would strongly recommend Daniel to anybody seeking a CBT therapist.
I was very sceptical when a car accident precipitated me undergoing a course of CBT but it has acted as a catalyst to change my life for the better. Apart from the accident I worked with Daniel on a number of issues and now feel more comfortable and relaxed with my emotional and physical well being. It has been a very positive experience which will continue to help me in the future. Thank you Daniel.
I worked with Daniel for a couple of months, while I was struggling to overcome an extremely stressful period in my life. I felt lost, confused and completely helpless. Working with him in the calm environment he provides has helped me feel myself again.
When I met Daniel , I was very low and had many mental issues to be helped with. Daniel asked me to tell him everything. Daniel was great , he listened for as long as it took. I felt at ease with Daniel getting everything out in the open to him. I kept nothing back. Daniel stressed the importance of being open and honest with him. I was open and honest, which put me immediately in a position of strength; Daniel could give me the best possible help. Daniel’s sessions are very practical, and enjoyable , and very successful. Daniel gave me homework to do, and I was happy to do this , which gave me full benefit in all of my sessions with Daniel. Upon Daniel’s advice I eased my problems with the help of the teaching of Byron Katie’s , Loving What Is. I practiced these teachings in sessions with Daniel and had a great feeling of achievement at the end of each session. Thanks to Daniel, I have removed a lot of my issues and am really enjoying life again. Daniel always remains there to talk to, as recovery is not short term , well it takes , as long as it takes. I would strongly recommend contacting Daniel. He will certainly help to make your mind a happier one.
The sessions with Daniel enabled me to face the issues I was having and gave me the mental tools I needed to cope, control and overcome my pain points, putting me back on the road to recovery.
Having never attended therapy sessions previously I was slightly unsure and apprehensive before starting, however any uncertainties I had were quickly dispelled as Daniel proved very easy to talk to and discuss issues with. The advice and techniques he shared each session proved both interesting and insightful. Key steps such as taking a deep breath to give time to let the dust settle have become invaluable day-to-day. I found talking things through in the sessions really helpful, but the most important take away I learned was that you need to follow through on the advice given as well. This is the only way to overcome obstacles and be able to take the required steps to recovery.
I was diagnosed with post-natal depression soon after the birth of my daughter. I was over emotional, depressed, lethargic and it felt like a stranger had taken over my body and mind. The day before her second birthday I broke down and just could not handle the stress of normal daily life as a working mother and wife anymore. I realised I needed more help than the antidepressants I have been taking. My GP suggested CBT.
When I spoke to Daniel on the phone I was immediately drawn to him – as if I just knew he was going to be able to help me. With his kind, calm and gentle manner he picked up on my problems and helped me to clarify my thoughts and feelings. He taught me a range of techniques such as how to turn around negative and disturbing thoughts for example. With his help I was able to find my old self again and I am now able to learn to love myself again. I am able to use the tools he provided me with to continue to discover myself even further. And for the first time in 2 years I feel happy again.
