Tinnitus counselling comes in many forms and each audiologist will have their own unique approach to supporting you.
The following strategies are often implemented with tinnitus counselling and if you would like to learn more about any one of them then please do book a video consultation with one of our audiologists.
Tinnitus can often leave you feeling helpless.
One of the most effective ways to gain control is to educate yourself around the problem. When you understand something, it often doesn't seem as threatening and it is this change in perspective that can help improve your symptoms.
Education is generally more effective for new sufferers but even if you have had it for a long time it can still be beneficial.
Tinnitus is often made worse by higher levels of stress and by negative thought cycles.
Talking therapies can help to reduce your stress levels and the distress caused by tinnitus by introducing healthier coping mechanisms.
We can introduce you to basic talking therapy concepts.If you find this approach useful, we can guide you to the appropriate professionals that are formally qualified in delivering this form of care.
Sound enrichment is the use of a sound generator to help take the brains attention away from the tinnitus.
Many people find that sound enrichment provides temporary relief from their tinnitus.
There are a number of devices designed to play relaxing sounds which your audiologist can introduce you to.
