Living with Emetophobia: Coping with Extreme Fear of Vomiting

Emetophobia, the extreme fear of vomiting, can affect just about every aspect of sufferer’s life, from everyday considerations (‘what food will be “safe” for me to eat?’) to matters that involve making huge, potentially devastating decisions (‘I can’t have this baby, I can’t face morning sickness’). Nicolette Heaton-Harris has first-hand experience of the phobia and its effects. She suggests strategies for coping with the high levels of anxiety that are intrinsic to the phobia, as well as pre-empting and avoiding anxiety attacks. The experiences of fellow sufferers of all ages, male and female, are shared throughout the book and a list of useful organisations providing further information and support services is also included. “Living with Emetophobia” is a must-have for anyone suffering from emetophobia, anyone living with an emetophobic as well as professionals treating or supporting people with emetophobia.

Cure Your Emetophobia And Thrive Young Person’s Edition – for 8-18 year olds

This Thrive Programme workbook is designed for young people aged 8-18 who have emetophobia, a strong fear or phobia of being sick. The book contains an eight week programme, which will show children and teenagers how to overcome their fear and really thrive within all areas of their lives. The best way for young people to get the most out of the programme is to work through the book with support from their parents. Where possible, parents want to read the adult version of this book, so that they can understand where their child’s fear comes from and help to support them as they work through the programme. Children who are at the younger end of the 8-18 age group, might also need or want some help from their parents when reading through each chapter. If extra support is needed, young people and their parents can also visit a Thrive Consultant (someone who is trained to help people get the most from The Thrive Programme). For further details, see www.emetophobia.co.uk.
