Approximately 11% of the UK population experience a phobia at some time in their lives. A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, feeling, animal or situation which develops when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of perceived danger. Indeed, people can develop a phobic response to almost any circumstance.

Emetophobia is a continual and unprovoked fear of vomit or vomiting. According to the International Emetophobia Society it is the fifth most common phobia.

Of all the enquiries that I receive from phobics, Emetophobia is considerably the most common. Sufferers find it often extremely limiting and disabling, many of whom have already sought treatment to little or no avail.

It is a common misconception among emetophobes that there is no cure – a myth perpetuated frequently by emetophobia forums. This is simply not true ! Even most doctors don’t understand the phobia fully and generally prefer to prescribe anti-depressants for it !

Emetophobia interferes with virtually every aspect of a sufferers life; education, career, marriage, family relationships etc. Many emetophobes take time off work or away from studies unnecessarily due to the fear of vomiting themselves or being exposed to people who can pass on germs that will cause them to vomit. Many suffer panic or anxiety attacks when they forsee the slightest possibility that they may vomit.

Unhappily, some women even choose against motherhood for fear of morning sickness and some sufferers even remain housebound due to their fear. Emetophobia envelopes a huge amount of time of the sufferers life; there is the constant worry when the threat of vomiting will occur next. This mental stress takes a significant toll on the emetophobe.


If a phobia becomes too extreme, the sufferer could organise their lives actively avoiding the object of their fear. As well as it severely restricting their day to day lives, it can also cause persistent anguish.

To gauge the degree to which your fear is affecting your life, ask yourself the following:

  • Do I spend an excessive amount of time thinking about my fear?
  • Is my fear affecting my physical condition?
  • When I think of this fear does my pulse increase, do my hands shake, do I feel nauseas?
  • Does this fear make me depressed?
  • Does this fear make me do things the hard way, such as planning road travel so as to avoid driving over bridges, or walk the long way to the shops to avoid a neighbours dog? Does it prevent me from going on holiday to where I would really like to go?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are likely to have a phobia and may consider treatment so that it no longer interferes with your life. So if you are in need of help for a fear of sick in Hemel Hempstead, we can help with The Thrive Programme.
