Hypnotherapy to Cure a Fear of Being Sick - Emetophobia

Hypnotherapy to cure Emetophobia –
the phobia or fear of being sick or seeing someone being sick (vomiting)

This is one of the more disabling phobias because it is very easy for the fear to spread to other areas.  An emetophobic can become frightened of illness (people who are ill), drinking alcohol, eating certain foods, places where people congregate (such as shops and pubs), dental treatment or becoming pregnant.  An emeotphobic can become fearful of any circumstance or place where they might get an upset stomach or see a person being sick.    

Emetophobia - The Unrecognised Phobia

Emetophobia is an extremely common phobia yet so many people have it without actually realising it is a phobia. It is quite common for a person to feel that they are the only person who suffers in this way.

Sufferers are more commonly women and have often developed a catalogue of measures to help them stop feeling nauseous; like carrying water or peppermints or some over the counter remedy for stomach upsets purchased from the chemist.  

Everybody, at some period of their lives, have probably experienced a fear of being sick but it is a necessary and extremely effective mechanism that allows our body to remove damaging substances from the stomach. The fear usually starts in childhood and gradually progresses from there. Oddly a person with emetophobia is rarely actually sick. It is often said that when an emetophobic is sick they lose their phobia but in my experience this is not the case (and treatment would never involve this).

Use Hypnotherapy to address your fear of Vomit or Being Sick

You can overcome your fear or phobia of being sick (emetophobia, often mis-spelt emetaphobia) using hypnotherapy for its treatment. Hypnotherapist, Stephen Rigby, has helped many people control their emetophobia using hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy can be an effective cure for emetophobia.

Why is it difficult to address Emetophobia without specialist help?

Emetophobia usually occurs after a bout of illness but a phobia of being sick is one of those complaints that often persists because a deeper part of ones mind, the subconscious, perceives some benefit to having the condition. In technical terms this is called secondary gain. For example, in one of my clients we found that the emetophobia was an attempt by her subconscious to make her more confident.

Hypnotherapy and NLP can cure a phobia of being sick (emetophobia). The aim of hypnosis is to cure emetophobia by developing a new perspective that does not hold the original fear. Hypnoanalysis may be used to determine any secondary gain and devise new strategies to achieve it. With the correct treatment one can cure emetophobia.
