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: relax, get comfortable, get to sleep; and 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.
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.
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!
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.

the Journey into Relaxation
A beautiful, meditative introduction to the MindSpa experience. Discover 5+ ways of relaxing profoundly, when you want, when you need.
It’s like listening to a calming, absorbing story that helps you change path. Naturally shift from the pressures of the demanding, digital world, and open a door to profound mental and physical relaxation.
The Journey into Relaxation uses words, music and binaural beats to gently guide you through a profoundly relaxing experience. I’ve carefully crafted it to help you build a MindSpa and a room where you can get comfortable, drift off, and discover how to return whenever you want.
The audio is free, and you can listen to it right here. If you’d like a little extra help with it, I’ve made a course available with free membership here. You’ll find some reminders on what you discovered, how to get back, and how to use it.
If you’d like more beautiful recordings like this, you’ll find loads more in the Library and at the Weekly events.

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.
