Overcome a Specific Fear of Vomiting (spov) emetophobia like Sarah and feel amazing!

Sarah, like lots of people with deep-seated phobias, suffered in silence. For 30 years she endured crippling emetophobia – a fear of being sick or encountering vomit, also known as Specific Phobia of Vomiting (SPOV).

SPOV sufferers may also suffer from other disorders and phobias, such as social anxieties, fear of flying and agoraphobia (a fear of enclosed or restricted spaces). These three are common because people who fear vomiting are often terrified of doing so, or encountering it, in a restricted public place, such as a bar, workplace or school.

Therefore, they may restrict their social activities so they avoid any situations with alcohol, eating out or encountering specific foods like chicken or seafood. Emetophobics may also limit exposure to children for fear of germs – indeed, many who suffer from this disorder delay pregnancy or avoid it altogether because of the fear of morning sickness, just as Sarah did.

“I hid it from my friends and family – so many people never knew. It held me back so many ways in life. There were lots of things I wouldn’t do and it impacted on my relationships and I’ve never had children because of it…” explained Sarah.

Sarah recently completed Cure your Emetophobia & Thrive, the most reliable way of curing SPOV, and is pleased to say: “I feel amazing – a different girl. I can’t wait to go out live my life free of this phobia…I’m so positive I can go out and do anything I want now!”

She went through the programme, which isn’t CBT, medication or therapy, with the aid of a Thrive Consultant, who helped Sarah complete the exercises and learn how to thrive free of her phobia. It equipped her with the tools and knowledge she needed to beat SPOV for good.

The programme was devised by emetophobia expert Rob Kelly, using his 25 years experience of psychotherapy to devise a highly effective way of helping SPOV sufferers beat their affliction and live a normal life. It’s available as book or one-to-one programme with the help of a Thrive Consultant. You can find your nearest one via the homepage.

Asked if she would recommend the programme to other SPOV sufferers, Sarah declared: “100%. Don’t waste anymore of your life, allowing this to affect you. You have to put the work in but it’s so worth it!”

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.
