It takes some effort, but it does work,
This review is from: Cure Your Emetophobia & Thrive: The Research-backed Self-help Programme to Overcome Your Fear of Being Sick (Spiral-bound)
Like a lot of people, I was really sceptical about Thrive when I started the program and kept preparing myself for the scam to become obvious. It didn't and I can also say that with a bit of effort, this simple therapy really can help anyone with emetophobia or other anxiety-based symptoms.
I worked through the book with a consultant and it was an eye-opening experience. I had been in normal CBT therapy for about six months to address general anxiety and that process helped me immensely to understand myself better. What it didn't do was give me tools and methods to create a more robust personality that is less prone to anxiety in the first place. Thrive really has helped me do that - and that differentiation is key: Thrive doesn't do anything to you; it helps YOU do the work required to overcome your issues.
I'm giving it 4 stars as the binding isn't that professional and the paper is easily damaged. Other than that it is a great product and with the right effort, can do what it says.
Best of luck to anyone out there living with emetophobia
