Emetophobia or a Fear of being sick is one of the most common phobias in the UK today even though it is not very commonly discussed. It is defined as an irrational anxiety or fear of vomiting. Generally its origins stem from childhood or an event when an individual has accidentally vomited in public causing feeling of anxiety and embarrassment. When a child is sick or sees someone else being ill they will feel fear so their subconscious minds will try and protect them by avoiding a similar situation again. In order to maintain this control they will use extreme avoidance tactics to stop the same situation from occurring again. Hypnotherapy for Emetophobia Nottingham helps to determine where possible the root cause of this subconscious issue is so that it can be more easily controlled.*
