“A distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.”

“A persistent, irrational fear of a specific object, activity, or situation that leads to a compelling desire to avoid it.”


Fear can be described in different terms in relation to the degree of fear that is experienced. This varies from mild caution to extreme phobia and paranoia with anxiety, worry, terror, horror, panic, and dread falling between the extremes.
Being afraid of something that can cause harm is a normal reaction. However, some people show strong, persistent and irrational fears of particular objects, activities or situations. When this behaviour interferes with normal everyday functioning, the condition is called a phobia.

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to to the thing itself,
but to your estimation of it;  and this you have the power to revoke at any moment” – Marcus Aurelius ( Roman Emperor )

An acronym for FEAR is Fantasies Experienced As Real but most fears – even lifelong ones are usually cleared in just ONE session!


“I visited you on 18th June for help with my spider phobia & thought I would update you on my progress.

I now have a postcard sized picture on my fridge of a tarantula & recently watched a programme about arachnophobia without any discomfort at all.

I can now either leave spiders alone or remove them from the house with a glass (something I could never do before). Amazingly I visited Longleat Safari Park on saturday & was able to take a close look at a tarantula (& was the only person doing so I might add!) where before I would not have been able to even catch a glimpse. I am regularly practising tapping & using your hypnosis cd’s which are most helpful, I think the biggest change has been that I simply no longer view myself as someone with a fear of spiders so thank you very much for that, it’s made a huge difference especially with summer approaching.” – J Staines


“Having had a long standing fear of mice I finally decided to seek professional help.  After spending some time on the internet  I decided to contact Ruth Fogg as she lives in my area and does not charge Harley Street prices. When Ruth visited my home she explained the therapies in a relaxed manner and answered my questions fully.  As a result of this I then met Ruth for two sessions.

At the end of the second session I felt far more relaxed about my ‘phobia’ and confident that I would now be able to handle  situations caused by my cat.  Whilst I cannot say that I would choose to spend time with a mouse, the change in my attitude really is amazing.  My family and friends can hardly believe how I have changed.  What was a huge problem and fear in my life has now  been reduced to a mere nuisance.” – G. Wraysbury


“You may remember I came to see you about a year ago as I was about to embark on a series of surgical procedures to save my teeth  and heal my gums and at that time had a fear of the dentist.  Well I have just completed my last visit and I can honestly say it has all gone like a dream, infact for my last visit on Saturday I was practically skipping to the surgery, so looking forward to seeing my dentist  and having the work done (3 hours).

Before I had the session with you I could never have envisaged my new thought process on attending the dentist.  People close to me,  knowing me for a life time like my brother are just astounded.

Thank you so much…I don’t know how EFT works but it does… infact for my last two visits I relied solely on listening to the CD for two nightsprior to appointment.   I’ve had 5 appointments all ranging from 1.5 to 3 hours in duration.

My last lot of stitches come out on Thursday and I’ll be smiley, smiley, smiley.” – W. Staines
