I can attest that a couple of these has helped Sephi.  She is not cured, but she doesn’t get quite as scared as she used to.  Instead of comforting her when she gets scared, I go about my normal business, whether it is reading a book by myself or playing with the dogs.  If a thunderstorm was going on and Sephi went to hide in the bathroom, I let her stay where she felt safe and sometimes I would turn on the bathroom vent.
