Really good podcast. My 12 year old son really suffers with panic attacks and anxiety around his fear of vomiting. Listening to just the first couple of episodes really helps me as a parent try to understand how he feels. I’d love to hear your advice for parents on how to best help a child who suffers from emetophobia. Looking forward to the rest of the series. From Neil (Cambridge, UK)
