Overcome Emetophobia workshop support video 2 with Rob Kelly


The video below is an support video for people going through The Thrive Programme to overcome their fear of being sick/seeing others vomiting. The manual they are using is called ‘Cure your emetophobia and thrive‘ – which is available from this website. (There is also a teenagers with emetophobia version of the book)

The Thrive Programme is the most successful and predictable cure for emetophobia and is fully backed up by scientific research. In our own research survey, all 164 participants overcame their fear of being sick. The programme was created by Rob Kelly – a therapist with over 30 years clinical experience – who has helped thousands of people to overcome their fear of being sick, and live happy, fulfilled lives.



Do you have an irrational fear of being ill? Perhaps the very idea of someone near you being unwell makes you panic? If so you might have emetophobia (also known as ‘vomit phobia’, phagophobia or specific phobia of vomiting.) You might have had this properly diagnosed by a doctor, or it may be that you’re suffering in silence. Like many other sufferers, perhaps it’s even been misdiagnosed as an eating disorder. Help is at hand with The Thrive Programme.

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.

Rob Kelly – creator of The Thrive Programme – is the expert on emetophobia. He has lectured on the subject globally and personally helped several hundred people to overcome their phobia for good. His work in private practice and the poor recognition and treatment of emetophobia has led to the publication of ‘Cure your Emetophobia & Thrive’, the workbook than will enable you to understand the cause of your phobia and ensure that you know what to do to overcome it.

The Thrive Programme is NOT therapy: the course teaches you how to regain control of your own life. On average it takes only 6-8 weeks for sufferers – even life-long sufferers – to be free of this debilitating and isolating phobia.

Working through the programme I will teach you how to build strong psychological foundations and to address your thinking styles and beliefs – in order to make lasting, significant changes that will completely change your life for the better. As you learn to Thrive – and your thinking, beliefs and emotions become more under control – your fear of being sick will just disappear, just like it did for the people in the workshop videos.
