    Default EMDR for Emetophobia

    I was wondering if anyone on here has ever tried EMDR for their phobia. I have been doing CBT for the past year but I'm about to start seeing a new therapist who I'm going to try EMDR with. From what I read EMDR has really good results for those with OCD, eating disorders, and childhood trauma (some other things I'm working on) but I haven't seen anything on emetophobia. Has anyone tried it? I assume if there are events linked with the phobia that EMDR can help but I wanted to know if anyone has done it personally and has had luck with it.

    Iíve had it!! It was fab!!!!!

    Had literally years of CBT which wasnít really working for me! I had a few sessions of EMDR and it really worked!! Think I got it in 2015 ish!! And itís now 2019 and itís only been since January, and a number of events in my life which have set my anxiety high again! So Iím back in here for a little while and got to ring Mind tomorrow for some more EMDR!!!

    Would definitely recommend it!!!

    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an interactive psychotherapy technique used to relieve psychological stress. It is an effective treatment for trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

    This is what it is! Itís very relaxing too! We sat and went through lots of events that happened over the years s* related and the lady has you close your eyes and she either taps on your hands on knees, talking through each event and giving logical explanations and why itís ok to feel the way I did at that time and what to do next time!

    I literally used to walk out of each session on top of the world!! I really canít wait to have some again!!

    I am currently undergoing EMDR therapy! I love it, it's definitely difficulty at times but I feel like I am making progress for the first time ever. I have been in therapy for about 9 months now. Best of luck

    I had EMDR when I was going through CBT for emetophobia. It wasn't a quick-fix like they claim, but it was very interesting and helpful in getting to the root of my anxiety and phobia. It was pretty cool.

    Treatment options are dependent on the person; however, exposure and response prevention (ERP, a type of CBT) is the gold standard for treating emetophobia.
