Gently take back control of your life and really shine ...
My name's Fred. I'm a hypnotherapist
Whenever I tell people this, they usually ask if I can make people do whatever I want.
I can’t even make a cat do what I want!
I can, however, help people do what they want: change the behaviours and patterns of thought they’re not happy with. I’ve been helping people do this for almost 20 years.
If you’ve any questions, you can find me on social media using the buttons below, or send me a message.
We call ourselves people helpers. I am delighted to recommend Fred Fogarty as a caring, skilled people helper.
Whether it is relaxation, stress management, any pattern of thought/behavior you want to outgrow or a goal to achieve, he can assist you. I highly recommend him and respect him as a colleague.
Enjoy his Mind Spa Odyssey! You’ll be delighted when you do!
When people come to a hypnotherapist,
it’s usually for one of 3 reasons:
There’s no avoiding it: modern life is full of pressures, expectations and demands. When they build up beyond what we think we’re capable of, we get stressed and overwhelmed.
A little bit of stress can be a great motivator, but when it builds up it can affect our mood, eating and appetite, relationships, friendships, health and more.
We know we need a break from the stress. When we get a little room to breathe, a calm space to clear our head and start thinking clearly, everything else gets a little more manageable.
You’ve got some behaviour you want to stop or improve.
Maybe you bite your nails or lips, smoke, or comfort eat. You know it’s bad for you.
You’ve tried telling yourself off, they’ve tried telling yourself what you want, you’ve tried willpower. You’ve probably even had a little success for a day or a week – but it seems to sneak back in the moment you stop focusing.
It’s so frustrating! It’s so automatic. It’s almost it’s like it’s not even you doing it.
When the clients I work with get this thing sorted, they feel so much better as so much of their focus and energy is freed up.
You’re paralyzed by anxiety or fears.
Sometimes it’s nervousness or anxiety, self-doubt, sometimes it’s overwhelming fear: the dry mouth, racing heart and nausea.
You’ve probably adjusted big chunks of your life to avoid the experience, changing your daily route to avoid triggers or people, and maybe even given up on some activities.
Forcing yourself through the experience hasn’t changed anything. Your quality of life is suffering and you want to finally be free of that fear.
How does it work?
Putting you back in control
People sometimes tell me it feels like their problem is out of their control.
The truth is, they’ve probably been going about things the wrong way – like trying to steer a car by shouting directions from the back seat.
We’ve got to get you in the driver seat and remind you how to drive.
That’s what hypnosis is: putting you back in control.
Although hypnotherapy can seem like a passive experience from the outside, it’s an active experience on the inside. There are no magic words (well okay, <maybe there’s one>), and hypnosis isn’t magic. If it was as simple as reaching in and rewiring people, we wouldn’t have any problems.
You’ll want to choose someone you can trust to help you – that’s why most hypnotherapists (and therapists in general) will offer you a ‘discovery call’ to see if working together will be a good fit.

and on-going support
For dealing with panic attacks Fred’s technique is excellent.
After only two sessions he has sorted me out just fine.
I am most grateful for his help.
