Welcome to The Thrive Programme

I recently took Clodine through the program to help her 12yr old daughter who was suffering from Emetophobia. This is her story. (My apologies for the sound coming from my end, still learning this tech) – Barrie, ON

The changes that have been made have been evident this past week: I actually ate with low anxiety food that my partner touched with his bare unwashed hands! – P.L. (Vancouver, BC)

Hi Dan,
I’m too excited that I had to share! Today was a huge milestone for me! My husband purchased Beer Fest tickets for us to go with a group of friends months ago. Anyways, we went today and I cannot believe how well it went. 
1- I ate breakfast before a travel day no problem (using I don’t)
2- I travelled in a bus no problem
3- drank beer and ate food at the festival
4- a friend was sick on the bus (drank too much) and I didn’t even flinch! 
**I didn’t get anxious at all!! 

I’m so proud of myself. I’ve truly come a long way!! Thanks to you and the Thrive program as well for guiding me on this journey. Yahoo!!!

Hope all is well with you!

Emetophobia: The intense fear of vomit, being sick, seeing others being sick, gagging, etc.

Also known as: Emetephobia, phagophobia, vomitophobia, vomit phobia, sickness phobia, fear of vomiting, fear of gagging, fear of swallowing, fear of chocking, globus hystericus.

From avoiding certain foods they eat, avoiding social situations, not traveling, or avoiding pregnancy (morning sickness), life for an Emetophobic can be extremely limited. Emetophobia is considered one of the worlds most common and most debilitating phobias.


THRIVE Program as a cure for Emetophobia


The THRIVE Program is the most effective research based treatment programs in the world exclusively focused on Emetophobia. Along with other symptoms in its class, Emetophobia does have a root cause. This cause is the result of a number of psychological factors that include limiting belief systems, low self esteem, social anxiety, personality, unhelpful thinking styles, low sense of control, strong desire for control, obsessive thinking just to name a few. These factors and more are what created the problem in the first place and hold the key to un-creating them.

THRIVE is a novel approach that takes you through a 6 session, 6 week programme where we work together to help you navigate through these psychological factors, tweaking them along the way. This program is easy to learn, with very minimal psychobabble. In fact, it is demystifying how the mind creates problems which makes this program unique in the field. View progamme layout here.

Resolving your phobia for good


This specialized treatment offered by the THRIVE programme is about permanently liberating you from your emetophobia once and for all. Not only does your emetophobia disappear, but all other symptoms associated with the same psychological factors that created the problem go with it. The end result is a more relaxed, more confident and more in control you. Click here for more about the THRIVE programme.

Other therapies including CBT, psychotherapy, EFT, NLP only ever deal with the symptoms, not addressing the cause.

For many who consult me, this may be the first time that they talk to someone about their phobia. Please rest assured that you will find me to be very easy going and non judgmental. This is a terrible affliction and you deserve a life of freedom and self-confidence.

I offer a free, no obligation consultation to all of my potential clients. Go on, get in touch and free your mind.

Dear Daniel, Rob and fellow Thrive friends,
I want to Thank Rob very much for creating this program specifically for emetophobics. For many years (over 2 decades!) I have suffered from this fear which I thought started after seeing my mother get very sick after chemotherapy. Over the years, to prevent myself from vomiting, I relied heavily on avoidance behaviours which has grown over the years. For example, I have really strict food hygiene practices as well I avoid certain places or situations such as going to the bar. And to no surprise gravol tablets/suppositories became my best friend! Desperate to get over this fear I have spent a lot of money with exposure therapy which was successful in helping alleviate the anxiety of others being sick but it did not help with the fear of myself being sick.
I felt very hopeless and alone. As well I started to realize how this fear affects my life and my relationships. For example, I would silently get very upset at my loved ones if they did not handle my food properly—placing me at risk. And as well I want to have kids but the thought of morning sickness really frightens me. Thankfully, I found this program last year however, I did not complete it. This year, I decided to face this fear head on and to help feel motivated and on track I consulted Daniel. This was a great decision as my weekly sessions with Daniel kept me on schedule as well Daniel provided me with additional examples. And it just felt really good to talk to someone who understood the program and situation.
Prior to the program, I was very low in self-esteem, very high in social anxiety and very external. After just 6 weeks with Daniel, I feel more confident, have less anxiety and feel more motivated and powerful to act as I realize it influences the outcome (this last point has positively impacted my Christian views and beliefs). I am still in the process of getting over this fear—but the progress that has been made and I continue to make have been quite remarkable. I am much more aware of the unhelpful thoughts and beliefs that I have especially my perfectionistic thinking style; as well I am working on reducing the avoidance behaviours that I have. The changes that have been made have been evident this past week: I actually ate with low anxiety food that my partner touched with his bare unwashed hands!

Research from: www.emetophobia.co.uk

Exploring The Efficacy of The ‘Thrive Programme’ with Emetophobic Clients: Results of a Survey Kelly, R.C.* & Allen, C.E.L.

Results: The emetophobic participants reported that their phobia had started at a mean age of 11 years. On average, these clients had been suffering from their fear for 24 years. All initially rated their emetophobia as having a ‘severe’ impact upon their lives (on a four point scale which included: little to no; modest; significant; severe). This was in contrast to the comparison group, of whom the majority (23, 76.67%) rated their symptoms as having a significant impact. Five (16.67%) of the comparison group rated their symptoms as severe and two (6.67%) rated them as having a modest impact on their lives. The emetophobic participants also completed a new measure of emetophobia severity (ESS), where higher scores represented greater severity and impairment (possible range 0 to 30). Participants scored an average of 24.31 (range 18 to 30). A statistical analysis found that the emetophobic participants had a significantly more external locus of control compared to the comparison group. They also had significantly higher social anxiety scores. Levels of self-esteem were comparable between the groups.

The treatment response of the emetophobic participants was also explored. After completing the Thrive Programme, the majority (30, 85.71%) of the emetophobic participants rated their symptoms as having little to no impact on their lives. The remaining five (14.29%) rated them as having a modest impact. A statistical analysis found a significant decrease in the emetophobic participants’ emetophobia symptom severity scores post the Thrive Programme compared to their initial scores. The initial and final locus of control, self-esteem and social anxiety scores of the emetophobic participants were also compared. Participants’ locus of control scores became significantly more internal after completing the Thrive Programme. There was a decrease in the participants’ social anxiety scores (where a higher score represented greater social anxiety) and participants’ self-esteem was also raised at the end of the programme.

Conclusions: The results of this survey suggested that the Thrive Programme is a highly promising treatment for emetophobia. The findings support the notion that interventions that challenge emetophobics’ unhelpful beliefs and thinking styles can be successful in substantially improving symptoms. Future research is planned to, firstly, further explore the relationship of locus of control, self-esteem and social anxiety to emetophobia and, secondly, to continue to probe the efficacy of Thrive Programme.

Thrive Program with Pat
Thrive has transformed my life in a way I never ever thought it would. For the first time ever I was able to decorate my Christmas tree with my children and enjoy the excitement. This experience would have normally ended up with me climbing the walls with the amount of mess going everywhere, the tree not being symmetrical in decorations etc. All that has gone out the window because I am taking control of my mind. I have learnt to take control and stop taking external factors into account. I believe I can change and make a difference to my life, not a new pair of shoes or the house being tidy. My perfectionist style is no longer the impossible, it is okay to do your best and be happy with 60%. I am not a failure because my children did not have a bath today and they have had bake beans on toast. I do not have to be in control of everything, I can now live on the wild side of life!
Pat helped me to see the bigger picture and learn techniques which are so easy to put into reality of life. I am finally in a place where I feel happy and not on edge. I can look in the mirror and not feel sick. There are days where I feel I am being tested and I have a scream, but that’s okay, its how you bounce back! We are human.
Reading the book was like reading me, I felt so alone before. I learnt I was not alone and having Pat to correspond with helped me with my journey through Thrive. You could do the book alone, however you do need someone to show you the bigger picture.
Pat has not only helped me achieve happiness but has become my friend.

I thought I could never be cured from the phobia I had! I was constantly checking people around me looking for signs that they may become sick. It took over part of my life I was beginning to avoid doing things I love like going on holidays for fear of someone being sick on a plane. I now know it was because of the way I was thinking. It’s never too late to start thrive programme. I have seen great changes in my life since I began the programme.

After seeing Patrick and going through the Thrive Programme with him, I have seen a massive improvement in my emetophobia and constant obsessing about sickness. I know that I’ve still got to keep working at this but Thrive has given me the tools to be able to do this
Mrs H.W.

Dearest Cara,
I really don’t know how to say thank you enough, you have changed my life completely! I know what you would say, and that is that it was me that did that! Yes you are right, but without your kindness, complete understanding and amazing knowledge of what you do, i could never have come so far! I came to you for my emetophobia, due to a recommendation from a friend of a friend, and the fact that you had treated a lot of emetophobes! I have to say i was very sceptical to start, as everywhere i looked on the subject said there was no cure, i now know that is rubbish and believe i am cured!!!  Not only did you help with that,but also with my low self-esteem and social anxiety, of which i didn’t realise were so bad, or how long they have been with me. I really wish i could have met you sooner, so i wouldn’t have missed out so much in life. But i can tell you what,there is no stopping me now. I know now that the only person in life holding me back is me! But not anymore. I know there will be challenges in life , but you have taught me the tools to deal with these and those tools and beliefs shall stay with me forever. My relationship with my children is now amazing, due to me being less stressed, less anxious and having so much more fun in life!! All my friends want to know what i am taking, as they have seen such a dramatic change in me, they certainly don’t believe me when i say its just me enjoying life!! I came to you a total wreck, ready to leave my kids because i couldn’t cope with the constant obsessing about sick, thinking about it 100 or more times a day, now i probably only think about 1 or 2 times a day, and cant get enough of my children and enriching their life with all those things that kids should be doing, which i stopped due to my phobia. I cant recommend you enough to people, i think Cara Ostryn should be  on the national health and it be available to everyone!!!! This whole process has made me think about my future … but now i have been through   ‘changing limiting beliefs’ and totally believe in this, i would like to do the same, i want to be able to help people in the same way i have. If i could help just one person in the same way it would be worth while! I would just liketo say again THANK YOU, you have changed my life!!!
Maggie, 32, treated for emetophobia

Firstly I would like to give you a huge thank you Richard, for giving the Taylor family our lives back again. I would like to say a little about our experience as a family and as a parent of 13 year old Daughter that has suffered for many years with anxiety and Emetophobia, and I hope this helps others that are suffering too. With  treatment their lives too can become normal and wonderful again, one which I never thought would be possible as things had got so bad. We were so desperate for help and tried every avenue, when we came across your details on the web. Our lives as a family had almost come to a holt, with never being able to arrange days out, holidays, or even having friends round as my daughters anxiety and Emetophobia was so bad she would end up making herself sick from the worry and fear of becoming  Ill. She had slept for months on a sofa with endless screaming throughout the night in fear of being sick  and was unable to even get into bed. Life for her was awful which put tremendous  strains on the family,  it was so upsetting, frustrating and exhausting to see and hear her  suffering every day. From having only 6 family sessions with Richard ,  completely changed my daughters  way of thinking and reasoning. She is now able to answer her own fears with a logical answers and take control of her life again , which was  unheard of. She hardly mentions the word “sick” (which I can’t say I  miss), as her obsession with sickness used to make her talk about it non-stop, literally NON STOP! These sessions with you Richard were fun and we learnt a lot about our daughters thought process which has helped us have a better understanding of her “ illness”  which was priceless. It has completely changed our lives and we are all so grateful for this. To be honest I never thought we would be saying this.
Many thanks, E, N & S

Claire helped me to overcome my phobia of sick and panic attacks with the Changing Limiting Belief technique. After being told by my doctor that I had a “mental illness” I was at a loose end and wondered if I would ever be able to live a life that wasn’t controlled by my phobia. Claire made me feel really relaxed and I enjoyed learning more about myself during the process. It helped me to gain control of my life again and feel excited to start living life without having to worry about sick. For the first time in years, I sat in the middle aisle at the cinema without worrying someone was going to be sick and I even had an ice cream halfway through. I used to avoid parties and big events with alcohol but now I am looking forward to joining in with my friends and also having a few drinks myself. I’ve even come off all my tablets as I feel I don’t need them anymore. Some times in life you need someone who can help you to help yourself and that person is Claire.”

Cured of emetophobia – a fear of being sick/ ill”

I had suffered with emetophobia (a huge fear of being sick) for the last twenty years, and it was ruining my life: I couldn’t go out, couldn’t get a boyfriend, was obsessional about what I ate, and lived a life full of anxiety. Over the years I saw several different therapists, read every self-help book I could find, and even spent some time in a psychiatric institute!!
All these ‘professionals’ said ‘they understood’ and ‘they could help’, and some even promised me a cure – none of them did, and in the meantime my phobia just got worse and worse. I could have saved 20 years of my life, about £10,000, and lots of ruined friendships – if I had read this book back then. AT LAST – not only does somebody understand this phobia, but speaks a language that normal people can understand, AND can help. A friend of mine cured themself of depression using the insights and techniques within this book, and recommended it to me. Three weeks after buying it and using it, my emetophobia is completely gone!!! I mean COMPLETELY gone! For the first time in twenty years I feel alive and happy. Thank you, thank you thank you.

Della the happy!

The thrive programme has helped me so much throughout these last few months since finishing the sessions. Whenever i feel anxious or worried i will use the techniques you have given me. I have been in a few situations but i didn’t panic, I carried on with whatever i was doing and soon forgot about it. Also last year i felt anxious about being in an exam, if i was sick whilst doing the exam i couldn’t sleep or eat much. But this year, i felt absolutely fine doing my exams. I completely forgot about it!

For once in my life i feel free. I can do whatever i want to do. I can eat anything without hesitating. For 5 years i had been living with emetophobia. Now after doing the thrive programme i no longer have this phobia. Thank you so much Cara! Smiley

Dear Diane,
Hope you are well, sorry it has taken me such a long time to email my thanks!
When I first came to you, although I had had a few sessions up in Northampton, I was stills suffering quite badly with the Emetophobia, I struggled to eat in restaurants, sit in crowded, enclosed spaces, travel on public transport, even eat certain things without panicking about being sick in front of everyone. I searched for exits and toilets compulsively everywhere I went. But since seeing you, it has changed my life dramatically. I have had a few wobbles where I have needed to focus on the DREAM technique but I expected that, and feel that I have grown stronger and stronger throughout them. I have since spent a month in India (with lots of being sick!) and 3 months in America, doing solo and dual flying hours towards my pilot’s license. I am currently a High Ropes Instructor and still focusing on a career in the Army – just over a year ago, Emetophobia would have held me back from all of this; I wouldn’t even have been able to get on the plane to India! More than helping in my everyday life, I have been reading other peoples stories and they all involve a trauma between the ages of 1 and 6 as the cause for Emetophobia. Mine was the same, but the difference is theirs all involved a vomit related trauma, whereas mine didn’t. This has started a huge interest for me in the causes of the phobia itself and I have been drawn into researching it more and more because so little is known about it. I cannot thank you enough because you have changed my life so dramatically. Although each session brought up painful memories and emotions, I cant imagine living now as I did before hypnotherapy. When I came to you the phobia had reached its worst, and I thought I would be in fear of being sick forever. Now I don’t feel held back by anything and what you have done for me is amazing. I hope you continue to help people as much as you did me.  Thanks again, Naomi

Amazing book
This book was given to me during therapy sessions when I feared I would never get over my fear of being sick. I was barely leaving the house and it was really ruining my life. But this book really helped me to stop thinking so negatively and to overcome my fear. I’m so pleased I read it, it has been incredibly helpful and I am getting on with my life with few worries! If you want to overcome any sort of fear or addiction, I strongly recommend you read this book and go through the exercises, they are excellent!

6months ago i was haunted by emetephobia, i used herbal anti anxieties regularly and felt i had know way out!! Out of the blue i searched hypnotherapy and found thrive, with support from a therapist i have now learnt to manage my anxiety and am free of emetophobia! I strongly advise anyone with any level of anxiety and emetophobia to read thrive, because it works!

I found the sessions interesting and intriguing and have learned a lot about myself. In between sessions my confidence grew and the Thrive book became my new best friend. The sessions were tailored to me as an individual and I wasn’t pushed and if I needed to go through something again this was fine. The exercises were also particularly helpful.
I confided that I had been ‘doing’ emetophobia to my best friend, without the sessions there is no doubt that I wouldn’t have done this. It felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I was able to not only talk to her about it but also about the Thrive book
Right from the moment I met you I have relaxed. I didn’t feel judged and I felt at ease as if you knew exactly how I was feeling which helped me in the end to convince myself that this was something that I could overcome.
I rang you at a particularly low moment after visiting my doctor (who had literally laughed in my face) as soon as I had made the appointment I had a surge of relief. Thank you x

Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive’
For the past 30 years of my life, I have had a debilitating fear of vomiting in public. Before I had to leave my house I would suffer from panic attacks and would vomit as a result of my phobia. I would starve myself of food all day or make myself vomit, just in case I had to leave my home…I might vomit in public. Over the past 12 years I have spent thousands of dollars on “treatment” for my Social Phobia, Agoraphobia, Panic Disorder, Depression and Emetophobia nothing I tried worked. My life was an absolute mess! My fears were affecting my marriage, my children and my health. I was at breaking point.
In July 2013, I discovered Rob Kelly’s book ‘Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive’. So I made an appointment to meet with Liz Hogon a Thrive Consultant, to try yet another treatment option. I went into this latest venture guarded and sceptical. Within 6 short weeks of meeting Liz and beginning the ‘Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive’ program, my life changed dramatically. I used to suffer numerous panic attacks everyday and vomit sometimes as much as 5 times a day. Since completing this program, I haven’t vomited in 4 weeks! Only a short time ago I was terrified of leaving my house and of eating, I now put my two young children in the car and drive to places we have never been and have lunch in public places and I am finally loving my life.
Before discovering Rob Kelly’s program and working with my supportive consultant Liz, doing these things were unimaginable to me. I was a prisoner trapped by my own negative and obsessive thinking. This program is not a magic cure you have to do the work. But if you want to gain control of your life and not just live, but THRIVE then this is the program to choose. Rob Kelly’s book taught me how to live without fear of my own thinking and I am forever grateful as is my family.

A nurse, suffering with emetophobia would sound like a joke! Not when you are the one living through it….Every single thing, and every comment, at home or work, was filtered through my emetophobic glasses. There seemed no way out… life was exhausting.
That was until I came across the Thrive programme , and tentatively made contact with Richard Parsons. What a fantastic decision I made !…
I couldn’t have asked for a more helpful and compassionate response, at a time when my self -esteem was low, leaving me feeling very vulnerable.
Usually I do not enjoy being in “the patient” role, but Richards’ relaxed cheerful style was more akin to chatting to a (very knowledgeable) friend in lovely comfortable surroundings. Our sessions combined insight into how to first understand and then manage my thinking style; with many random thoughts and questions from me.
I found it amazingly easy to talk to Richard, and will always remember his genuine concern, and desire to help his clients. The only way he could maintain this is because he truly loves his work.
I enjoyed every session, finding all the new information fascinating, and left every one motivated and enthusiastic, and smiling! (Yes… smiling whilst dealing with emetophobia!!). Before long I realised that I was challenging all areas of my life; and my internal locus of control and self- esteem were growing steadily.
Now, 3 months after meeting Richard I realise that “ this thing” of which I was so scared, does not actually exist, except in my thoughts; and as I now know how to manage my thinking…….. WOW!
I have been delaying writing this letter until I “KNOW” that I can cope, but have realised of course that that is just another limiting belief… so have decided not to delay!”
Wendy B

Thanks again!
I had to buy this having bought the Emetophobia version to to see what else was in it and take my changes further. A great read giving me a real understanding of me and what makes me tick. I can now say “No” without feeling guilty, and no longer feel like a doormat. Self esteem is through the roof and the dreaded social anxiety is for the most part sorted. I’m now pushing myself with new things and its great. Everyone should get this – even if you think everything is 100% OK. Once again – Thanks!

Life changing
I had emetophobia for over 20 years, a phobia that developed when I was about 6 years old. Anyone who knows anything about emetophobia will know that it effects every single aspect of your life and is extremely debilitating. My beliefs, coping mechanisms and behaviour had been repeated every day for 20 years and within one month all of this changed.
I decided to work through the book with a therapist and I found this very useful – if you have a therapist in your area who specialises in CLB I would highly recomend it.
This book changed my life.

After seeing Patrick and going through the Thrive Programme with him, I have seen a massive improvement in my emetophobia and constant obsessing about sickness. I know that I’ve still got to keep working at this but Thrive has given me the tools to be able to do this
Mrs H.W.

I am fourteen years old and I have lived with emetophobia since I was five. After nine years of a variety of therapies and other people trying to convince me that there was nothing to be afraid of, I finally found something that taught me that I had the power within me to overcome my fears. I started Thrive four months ago after a three week period of out of control anxiety, centered around the fear of vomiting, that left me unable to go to school, sleep, eat, or function in any rational way. After doing ONE session of Thrive, I realized that I had the ability to change and control the thoughts that were in my head, so I could live a life without fear. Instead of relying on other people to tell me that I am ok, all I do is remember what I learned from Thrive, and I am ok. Things aren’t always 100% perfect, but I always have something to rely on to comfort me and it comes from within now. Now, I’ve done about ten sessions of Thrive and am living a happy/healthy life!


This is an amazing book….buy it NOW as it will change your life!!I had suffered for years with emetophobia and anxiety and thought I would have one more try at ridding myself of it! I decided to do it in conjunction with a trained therapist…in my case the skilful Christian Bell in Rugby who I can thoroughly recommend. In a few weeks I realised that not only had my phobia improved but also the anxiety that I had been plagued with all my life was going….I am getting better all the time and on the odd day when I fall into what Rob calls a pot hole it doesnt last long and Christian is amazingly supportive. I am now planning on doing the training courses on the Autumn to help others not to spend their lifes needlessly suffering….GIVE IT A GO PLEASE!!! (with or without a therapist…this will change your life Im sure)….”

I was nervous at my first session but Claire was great and put me at my ease straight away. I really felt so much more positive after my first session and began to believe that I could overcome my phobia and improve my life. I now believe that I can do anything I put my mind to and learning this one fact has enabled me to take on new challenges such as starting up my own business with confidence. I’ve learned so much about myself that has allowed me to cope better with previously scary or stressful situations. I used to say that I suffered from emetophobia, like I was a victim of this uncontrollable thing. After my sessions with Claire I now understand that my phobia stems from mismanaged thinking and that I have the power to control how and what I think about. These sessions have given me back control over my life and as a result I feel so positive about the future. ”

We contacted Beaula Paige in July 2010 after reading her website. Our 16 year old son was suffering from Emetophobia, which was destroying his life. He had also developed severe OCD tendancies which were completely ruling his daily way of life. The emetophobia caused him to believe that everything he did, touched, smelt or ate would make him vomit. Consequently, this caused his body mass to drop to 16 and his weight became 42k. He was hospitalised and we were desperate to find him some help. He first visited Beaula in the summer and began a programme of self help. He had incredibly low self esteem and found attending the sessions very hard. Every week brought new challenges and although sometimes this was incredibly difficult for him to cope with, she encouraged him to stay positive and focused. Now, in November, the difference is truely amazing. He has embarked on a completely different take on life. He no longer has OCD rituals which rule his life and he is eating! His weight has raised to 53k and he is now having driving lessons and he has successfully returned to college and has recently secured a part time job. We are so pleased with his successes. We can’t praise Beaula’s professionalism enough. We would recommend her to anybody who needs some help to enjoy life.”

I love it!!
At first I didn’t think a book would get rid of my emetophobia. But it worked. It really does! I read through all of the pages and did all the exercises in the book and towards the end of the book was in a few uncomfortable situations but I wasn’t anxious of even nervous.! For 5 years I was living with emetophobia. And after finishing the book I was fully cured! I feel free to eat what I want without hesitating or feeling anxious. I would defiantly recommend this book to everyone! It’s fantastic. Thanks Rob,

Absolutely Amazing

After reading the Thrive workbook and attending a fiew sessions with an IAPH member I am now so positive and happy, I take the good out of any situation, I walk with my head held high, I’m going out shopping e.t.c , my eating habbits are improving and I generally love the company of others again!
