Emetophobia (fear of vomiting or vomit) is an anxiety disorder impacting an estimated 8.8% of the population1 where 0.1 to 0.2% experience significant distress. Emetophobia causes substantial distress including depression, panic attacks, strict diets/eating rituals, social and professional impact, and pregnancy avoidance2. Sufferers of emetophobia often don’t seek treatment and have higher dropout rates than other disorders3.

Bia lowers the barrier to the path of recovery by providing a self-driven set of lessons and activities in a safe environment. Bia teaches you key concepts from Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and applies those concepts in interactive exercises in a simple web tool that encourages regular practice, dynamically adapts to your input, and tracks overall progress. Bia measures progress by recording anxiety levels in response to triggers, and aims to reduce or eliminate your anxiety response.

Based on Researched Techniques:

If you are currently in therapy, Bia can be a great tool to help you apply your skills and track your progress. If you are considering therapy, Bia is a good place to start and learn what is possible.
