Emetophobia is a fear of vomiting, it is a common phobia, though often hidden. Many are embarrassed to admit this problem, or are misdiagnosed as anxious or depressed, leading to inappropriate treatment. People are surprised to find this is a widespread problem which can be resolved.
CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) is an effective, rapid and permanent treatment for emetophobia. Hypnotherapy is also effective in bringing this under control by changing your beliefs. I combine these two approaches.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is a proven and effective therapy that brings clear, significant and lasting results. CBT is now the primary therapy used in the NHS.
CBT puts you to be in control of your own recovery. You will learn to become your own therapist. By adjusting your thinking to a more reasonable and calm view – you will avoid misconceptions, faulty analyses, self-deception and blind spots.
Hypnosis is also a powerful tool that helps you automatically use the new Coping Strategies you have learned, and respond to difficult situations in a new and more positive way. You will re-learn the art of relaxation, giving you the ability to take a step back in situations of high anxiety. This helps you remain calm in times of stress.
If you or a loved one experience emetophobia, there is no need to continue suffering. Life changing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is available, allowing you to live free of this phobia and return to normal life.
