From the age of FIVE, brave Erin suffered from emetophobia… then she found The Thrive Programme:
“Now I’m a different person!”

Erin is a teacher of English over in Japan and had suffered from emetophobia for most of her life, since the age of 5. Constantly nervous and having frequent panic attacks, she feared that she would have to live with it for the rest of her life.

Erin beat her emetophobia after suffering from age FIVE!

After much searching online Erin discovered the Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive book and that she could be guided through the book via Skype by certified, licensed Thrive Consultants. Initially very skeptical about the programme and how effective it could be, she would downplay it and query how a book could change something that she’d struggled with for the majority of her life.

Dismissing her doubts, Erin decided that she would engage with the programme and immediately set to work. Putting in a huge amount of effort and taking the time to absorb the principles of the programme Erin eloquently states of The Thrive Programme: ‘You have to work but what you put into it, you will get out of it… now I feel like I’m a different person’

Now Erin is emetophobia free she feels freer and more confident in everything she does. Her sense of self-esteem is up, her view of her own body image is better, she is viewing the events and experiences of her life in a far more effective, productive way.

Encouraging other emetophobes to take part in their own Thrive Programme journey, Erin simply states ‘Go for it. I feel fantastic. You can too’

Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive was launched in 2007 by psychotherapist Rob Kelly, utilizing his 20-plus years of experience in curing phobias to design a reliable and predictable treatment for emetophobics. Since then, thousands have changed their lives and now live phobia-free.

You do not need to live with Emetophobia – you can COMPLETELY overcome it – just like all the people in these videos did. Take control of your life, learn to thrive!

Emetophobia, the fear of vomiting, is widespread; it is one of the most common phobias for which people consult Thrive Programme Consultants. Research has suggested that prevalence of a fear of being sick ranges from 0.1 to 8.8% percent of the population (Hout & Bouman, 2011).

These different figures probably depend upon whether the researchers assessed participants for any sort of ‘fear’ of vomiting or solely focused upon a severe ‘phobia’. These prevalence figures suggest that somewhere between around 63,000 and 5.5 million people in the UK suffer from emetophobia.

Emetophobia is known by many names (emetophobia, specific phobia of vomiting (SPOV), vomit phobia, sickness phobia, fear of vomiting…) and is associated with other fears and disorders, such as phagophobia (a fear of gagging, swallowing or choking), a fear of pregnancy, social anxiety and obsessional disorders. People can fear vomiting themselves and/or others vomiting. Most individuals with emetophobia are female, with research studies revealing that 85-97% of their emetophobic participants are women (Hout & Bouman, 2011; Lipsitz et al., 2001; Veale & Lambrou, 2006).

Emetophobia tends to be a severe symptom and often significantly affects sufferers’ ability to lead normal lives. People with this fear often go to great lengths to avoid encountering anything that could lead to vomiting. They may, for example, be teetotal or heavily limit their alcohol consumption and avoid pubs or clubs where others may drink heavily and then vomit. They may worry a great deal about hygiene, and be fussy about making sure everywhere is clean. They may take excessive time off work or school because they worry about being exposed to germs that will cause them to be sick.

Many sufferers of emetophobia have unsuccessfully tried a range of treatments. Veale and Lambrou (2006), for example, found that twenty-nine percent of their sample of vomit phobics had received some form of therapy for their fear, which overall they rated as largely ineffective. Veale and Lambrou (2006, p. 139) have stated that “clinicians generally regard it as challenging to treat because of high drop out or a poor response to treatment.”

In 2007 Rob Kelly – an emetophobia expert with over 30 years clinical experience – launched ‘The Thrive Programme’, which is a revolutionary psychological training programme – that people can learn at home from a book/video programme – that thousands have used to transform their lives. All the ex-emetophobics in this YouTube channel used the emetophobia version of the Thrive Programme book/video course to overcome their phobia.
