Who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today.
— Tim Fargo

Are you here because you've been overwhelmed with the fear of being sick (vomiting) for far too long? Perhaps the very idea of someone near you being unwell makes you panic? If so, you may have emetophobia. You might have had this diagnosed by your doctor, or it may be that you’re suffering in silence. Like many other sufferers, perhaps it’s even been misdiagnosed as an eating disorder.

Mary had emetophobia for more than 70 years! She tried a number of treatments and was convinced that she would never overcome her sickness anxiety. However once she had read through the Thrive Programme®, she decided to try it for herself, with life-changing results. You can watch her video here.

The Thrive Programme was developed by UK psychotherapist, Rob Kelly. He is the expert on emetophobia and has lectured on the subject globally.

The Thrive Programme® comes from a completely different angle to any other treatment, therapy or intervention. Thrive is NOT therapy – it’s the complete opposite to therapy – and it puts you in the driving seat.

The Thrive Programme® is an evidence-based, easy-to-understand and empowering training programme that teaches people the skills and resources to overcome emetophobia and learn to thrive.

As a Licensed Thrive Consultant®, I can take you through the programme step-by-step, face-to-face (in my office or via the internet wherever you are) to ensure you understand what you're currently doing that isn't helpful to you and, what you need to do instead to overcome your emetophobia. Think of me as your coach. As with someone wanting to learn swimming, tennis or football, a good coach will get you to where you want to be significantly quicker than trying to learn these skills on your own.

Let me be clear though, it's not magic. If you work with me, and you promise yourself that you will make the effort, you will overcome your emetophobia. The programme requires your time for a one hour face-to-face session each week, for 6-8 weeks (depending largely on your time and effort) as well as some reading and exercises in between our sessions. Plus I provide you with some additional support following the main programme to be sure you're staying on track.

To find out more and to get a sense of who I am and what I'm like to work with, I'm happy to spend 15 minutes to give you a better understanding of how the programme is run and answer any questions you have.

I love that quote from Tim Fargo. "Who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today." So, book a 15 minute chat and let's talk.

Some Comments From Recent Clients

Michelle is the most caring person I have ever spoken to about Emetaphobia, she showed a true care in me and was behind me and so supportive all the way through. I could not recommend her enough. She was like a friend to me who also knew when I needed to be pushed that much harder to get myself over Emetaphobia. Michelle is amazing!

I wish people knew about the thrive program because it gives hope to people struggling with emetephobia and other anxiety disorders.”

”The thrive program was challenging but the amount it helped was so worth it. There are so many things that are different about me like I know I can cope if I vomit , I am more positive with life , I talk kindly to myself instead of always beating up on myself and best of all I am way less anxious and I have hope that my fear won’t control my life anymore.”
