NEW: Online Tinnitus Support Group
Hosted By Tinnitus Rooms
Adjust Hearing, in partnership with Tinnitus Rooms, is proud and excited to launch our online tinnitus support group.
It is packed with activities to keep the session interactive and will follow a familiar and structured agenda.
The meeting is 1 hour long and we restrict it to a maximum of 10 people to ensure it remains personable and you get your chance to talk (if you like).
We plan to start each meeting with our ice breaker. You will be given the opportunity to speak for one minute about a rose and a thorn.
A rose is anything that has made you feel satified, happy or warm and fuzzy. It doesn’t have to be tinnitus related. An example may be that you found the time to tuck in to a good book.
A thorn is a recent challenge you have encountered. Once again, it doesn’t have to be tinnitus related.An example is that you didn’t find the time to go for a walk today.
Prior to each meeting we will send through a recent tinnitus news article. It may be about new treatments, management strategies, or perhaps about emerging research.
We will then allow each person the opportunity to talk for one minute to share their thoughts and opinions on this. You can of course opt of this minute if you do not feel comfortable.
After this, we will have an open group discussion for 5 minutes. The facilitator will control the room to ensure that people are taking their turn to talk so it does not become overwhelming.
Each session will have a chosen topic for the masterclass. The masterclasses are designed to educate you around various aspects of tinnitus.
The masterclass will have a 15 minute time slot. During this time, all microphones will be muted and no questions will be taken. This is to help with time keeping.
At the end of the 15 minutes, there will be a 5 minute open discussion to ask questions on the topic from our expert.
Tinnitus Tea Time
Get the kettle on, this is a quick 10 minute break where you can walk away from the screen and grab a quick drink.We will keep the meeting running to allow for an informal chat and discussion about anything and everything.
The mindfulness moment is the signature sign off from Tinnitus Rooms. It is about unwinding and reflecting on the meeting.
Your microphones will be muted so you can sit down comfortably in your chair as we guide you through the exercise.
At the end of the exercise we will unmute so you can all say good bye. You can then decide if the online tinnitus support group sessions are right for you. If they aren’t you can also look in to our one-to-one sessions.
