Emetophobia is a persistent fear of being sick or vomiting and, according to the International Emetophobia Society, it is the fifth most common phobia.
I receive many enquiries from emetophobes - and is THE most common phobia that I treat. Sufferers find it often extremely debilitating and disabling. Many of my clients have already sought treatment - to little or no avail. Nearly every emetophobe I have treated believed there is no cure - a myth perpetuated often by emetophobia forums. This is not true! Even many doctors do not understand the phobia and will often prescribe anti-depressants for it.
Emetophobia interferes with educations, careers, marriages, and family relationships. Many phobics take time away from work or school unnecessarily because of the fear of vomiting themselves or being exposed to people who can pass germs that will cause them to vomit.
Many emetophobes suffer panic or anxiety attacks when they imagine the slightest hint that they may vomit. Sadly, some women even deny themselves motherhood for fear of morning sickness and some sufferers become housebound. Emetophobia is rarely spoken of partly because of the nature of the subject - sufferers feel that is unpleasant and 'dirty' and victims are acutely embarrassed.
Dearest Cara, I really don’t know how to say thank you enough, you have changed my life completely! I came to you for my emetophobia, due to a recommendation from a friend of a friend, and the fact that you had treated a lot of emetophobes!
I have to say i was very sceptical to start, as everywhere i looked on the subject said there was no cure, I now know that is rubbish and believe I am cured! I cant recommend you enough to people, I think Cara Ostryn should be on the national health and it be available to everyone!!!!

Louise Fellows, 38: How Thrive helped me overcome emetophobia
"From as young as 8 years old I developed an ever growing fear of sickness, although I'm not sure what it was that started it. Since then my emetophobia had developed a growing debilitating presence in my everyday life. I developed obsessive cleaning and sanitation habits as I was terrified of getting anything like Norovirus. Click here to read more

The Thrive Programme - effective emetophobia help!
The Thrive Programme is a hugely successful treatment for emetophobia. Discover how to completely change the way you think and feel about situations that are linked to being sick or seeing someone be sick.
In just six weekly sessions, I can teach you how to feel completely in control of your thoughts and feelings - no longer feeling powerless in the face of this horrible phobia.
The Thrive Programme is a very powerful training programme that helps you to understand yourself, your personality and your thinking that is causing the problem. Once you have that insight, it can be very easy to think differently, change old patterns of behaviour and feel back in control.
Thrive is an empowering and liberating psychological training programme. It is also very different to CBT (even though it may sound similar on the surface). CBT is very much about looking at the symptom in isolation and giving sufferers techniques to deal with the anxiety once it has occurred (fire-fighting). Thrive is all about giving you the insight to understand and change the root of these thoughts.
I just wanted to say how happy and grateful I am to you, Cara. I used to be an emetophobe but since coming to you I have overcome my fear of sick. I never believed that anyone could help me. No one understood - I wasn't just scared - I was petrified. I'm so happy now and can't stop smiling and can't believe I used to be scared of sick. Thank you so much for changing my life and making it a better one. To other sufferers out there, don't live with this fear as I don't anymore.
