Amazing young lady beats emetophobia, alcohol &
panic attacks with The Thrive Programme!

Lisa suffered from severe emetophobia for years. It was really challenging to deal with on a daily basis – even simple social occasions such as going out for dinner lead to huge anxiety about what to eat and if it would make her ill. Going to the cinema meant sitting on the end of a row, always, in case she had to run out and be ill.

Lisa talking about how The Thrive Programme has changed her life

She also starved herself regularly when she couldn’t face eating and once lost two stone in two months. Life wasn’t great and she wasn’t sleeping properly either, along with being constantly anxious.

With her panic attacks getting worse, Lisa eventually started drinking and was consuming a lot on a daily basis just to stay calm and get some sleep. This got worse when her grandma passed away and she lost her job. Her self-esteem also got worse and she put on weight.

After contacting Rob Kelly – founder of The Thrive Programme – Lisa got hold of a copy of the Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive book and worked through the programme, eventually going to a Thrive boot camp in a bid to cure herself. It worked and Lisa is now sober and free of emetophobia. She’s loving life and is now sleeping through the night for the first time in years – well done Lisa! Check out her story in the video below.

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.
