How you can stop worrying about your health and enjoy life
Many of us have a tendency to worry unnecessarily about our health. For some the anxiety becomes chronic, and they may spend many hours checking for symptoms, seeking reassurance from others, surfing the internet for information about different diseases, or repeatedly visiting the doctor. It is distressing for them and for everyone around them.
In fact, health anxiety can be very successfully treated with cognitive behavioural therapy – the approach taken in this self-help guide. Using a structured, step-by-step approach the authors explain how the problem develops, how to recognize what feeds it and how to develop effective methods of dealing with it.
Includes questionnaires, case studies and exercises.
Based on proven CBT techniques.
Includes a chapter on fear of death and fear of vomiting.

Cure your emetophobia and Thrive (Thrive: Health, Happiness and Success)

Regardless of what you might read or hear elsewhere, you CAN be cured of emetophobia – a fear of being sick – and you can do it yourself, in the comfort and safety of your own home. Rob Kelly has helped hundreds of emetophobics over the last twenty five years, and supervised the helping of many hundreds of others. This book is based on his Thrive Programme, but it has been re-written and re-researched especially for people with a specific fear of vomiting/fear of being sick.

We have just finished a research survey (download it here: http://www.thriveprogramme.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Emetophobia-Research-Project.pdf) following up 34 emetophobes going through Thrive to help overcome their phobia. All of them overcame their fear. At the same time, they all significantly raised their self-esteem, significantly lowered their social anxiety, reduced their obsessing, calmed down their ‘desire for control’ and felt much more powerful! These changes are ESSENTIAL if you want to completely overcome your phobia.

Where does emeto come from? Why are 90% of the sufferers women? Why is it such a huge phobia to have (probably the worst of all of the phobias)? Why do so many women suffer from it (about 5-8% of all women – to a greater or lesser extent) and yet they mostly keep it secret from their family and friends? Why does exposure therapy generally not work for emetophobes? What are the shortfalls of CBT? Why is the Thrive Programme so effective in helping emetophobes? All these questions, and much more, are thoroughly explored and answered. Childhood, parenting, anxiety, social phobia, depression, agorophobia, OCD, obsessive brooding, hyper vigilance, black and white thinking are all described in detail.

More importantly, the book details a step by step programme (online support available) that you can follow at home, which will enable you to finally overcome your fear/phobia, get on with your life, and positively THRIVE. See also www.emetophobia.co.uk and www.thriveprogramme.org
