If you suffer from ailurophobia or a fear of cats, then there is a safe, effective treatment available just for you. Hypnosis has been used to address fears, addictions, and unwanted behaviours successfully for several decades. This means that overcoming your fear of cats is now possible without the use of drugs or undergoing questionable treatments that may have unwanted side effects. Understanding how hypnosis can cure ailurophobia will help you lose your fear, so you can approach cats with a better understanding of what they do.
What is ailurophobia?
The fear of cats is not well understood, but it does go back many thousands of years when cats were first domesticated. Unlike dogs which have been bred and trained to do specific tasks, cats have remained relatively the same. This is because their primary function is their natural one, to catch small pests such as mice. Because they have changed relatively little over the centuries, they still contain the more unpredictable elements of their born-in-the-wild cousins such as the lynx and bobcat to name a few.
The fear of cats comes in different forms, from a genuine fear of what they might do to loathing as some people have about rats or snakes. In any event, addressing ailurophobia starts with using hypnosis as the basis for making the change.
Benefits of hypnosis treatment
There are strong advantages to using hypnosis treatments as the basis for overcoming the fear of cats, starting with the effectiveness of hypnosis in addressing many types of fears. Fear is a good thing because it provides a warning of danger and prepares the mind and body for what might happen next.
However, when the fear gets out of control, it inhibits the mind from taking the proper course of action. Hypnosis treatments tamp down the fear so that you can make the right decisions. Here are some other benefits of using hypnosis;
- No side effects
- No drugs
- Can be used repeatedly without detrimental effect
- Low cost
There are no unwanted side effects from hypnotic treatments nor are there any drugs used which may inhibit your mental functions. Hypnosis is safe and can be used repeatedly to tamp down the fear, so you can be more rational when around cats. It also helps that it can be used with other therapies to get at the source of the ailurophobia.
Once you have experienced the treatments, which can be provided by a trained hypnosis therapist or self-administered, you can use the training to focus your mind and get past the fear whenever it arises around cats. Also, such treatments are affordable and quite effective, making hypnosis one of the best treatments for any type of unwanted fear.
Understanding how hypnosis can cure ailurophobia means that your fear of cats will subside, so you can feel less anxious about approaching these animals. For many, hypnosis has been the preferred treatment for ailurophobia and fears of other animals, objects, or locations and has led to happier lives for those who were cured.
