Episode 6: Support Groups – are they good or bad? – Emetophobia Help with Anna Christie
Are you afraid of vomiting or of seeing/hearing someone vomit? Do you experience anxiety or have panic attacks related to the fear of vomiting? Do you think about vomiting almost every day and especially when you don’t feel well? The fear of vomiting is called EMETOPHOBIA and it is much more common than you think. 6% of women and 1% of men suffer from a fear of vomiting. This means that 23 MILLION people in the United States alone have a fear of vomiting.
Why have you never heard of it? Shame and embarrassment. Emetophobics keep it hidden from everyone and suffer in silence.
My name is Anna Christie, and I had a very severe phobia of vomiting for years. I don’t like to use the word “cure” because emetophobia is not a disease. But I am fully recovered thanks to conventional CBT, and I am now a licensed psychotherapist specializing in emetophobia.
I offer treatment for emetophobia online via Skype, give professional consults, provide free resources to therapists, write, educate and offer guest speaking. My fee per 50-minute session is $200CAD. I see most clients for 16-20 sessions.
