We are planning a new charity that will focus on helping people affected by emetophobia (a specific phobia of vomiting)
1. through the provision of support, education and practical advice
2. the advance of education and awareness of the general public
in all areas relating to emetophobia
3. to support research and development of treatment into emetophobia by raising of funds
This can be extremely distressing and interfering in one’s life. Sufferers may end up housebound or unable to travel. It mainly effects women who may avoid a desired pregnancy or a required operation because of the fear of vomiting.
We have 3 enthusiastic clinicians and 3 sufferers but we are seeking someone with financial background as a treasurer. As such we have no funds at present and have some very basic needs like opening a bank account and helping to set up a CIO for eventual registration.
We will meet on Skype in the evenings about once every 6 weeks. Our first aims are to develop a website and to hold a conference. If interested please do get in touch by email Prof.David@Veale.co.uk with a CV.
