Sam Gets Help with Emetophobia (Fear of Being Sick)
If you ever met Sam out socially you would probably be surprised to discover her occupation. Sam works for our emergency services where any kind of weakness could prove disastrous for ones own safety – and the safety of others. Unfortunately, Sam had such a weakness – she had a phobia, she had emetophobia and in Sam’s case that meant she not only had a fear of herself being sick but of anyone else around her doing the same.
Sam had suffered with a fear of being sick or of vomit in silence for years but had been able to manage her fear. Then an incident with sickness when on holiday had pushed her manageable fear to full on emetophobia. Sam became frightened of any place where someone may be ill: fairgrounds, airplanes even places like pubs where people were drinking. Sam did not drink any more and could not go near people who had been drinking. Her emetophobia also influenced her eating; making her cautious of what and when she ate. Her emetophobia restricted her diet by making her avoid fatty foods or eating late in the evening. She often found herself lacking the energy her job required. Sam’s fear even extended to not being able to enter areas from which, if she started to feel ill, she would not be able to easily escape. This meant that enclosed places like shopping centres were out of bounds.
Sam’s work required that she be able to address any situation in any place - including drunks in shopping centres!
Sam required just two sessions of hypnotherapy to address her emetophobia.
Sam’s Comment on Her First Hypnotherapy Session
At the end of the first session of hypnotherapy she announced,
"All I want to do now is go down the shopping centre with my aunt!”
Sam’s Comment on her Second Hypnotherapy Session
At the start of the second hypnotherapy session she confirmed her shopping trip and as part of her progress report declared,
"And I went out last Saturday night and got drunk – and I had chips on the way home!”
Sam’s Six Week Progress Report
Six weeks after her second hypnotherapy appointment to address her emetophobia, in reply to a follow up email Sam wrote.
“Yes things have been fine since my last visit, friends and family have noticed a huge change in me and I’m able to do things with a lot more confidence now.
“I just don’t seem to worry anymore and I’ve even booked to go on holiday in June and I didn’t think I would ever be able to get on a plane again! “

Sam came to me with a commitment to beat her emetophobia. Without such a commitment she would have had no cure. The commitment to cure emetophobia is typical of all those who escape its clutches - hypnotherapy can just make the process easier.
