At the basis of all tinnitus treatment is a personalised program of education and counselling delivered by our skilled audiologists. Tinnitus counselling provides you with a thorough understanding of your tinnitus and how you can best manage it.
We will give you information about the mechanisms of tinnitus, the auditory system and how other brain areas such as your emotional area and the "fight or flight" response effect tinnitus. We will also explain to you about the habituation process.
We will address the effects of tinnitus on your emotional state and provide tinnitus management techniques and strategies. This may include relaxation techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation and tips on getting to sleep.
Sound therapies and hearing aid amplification work best when they are supported with counselling and education and the skill of your hearing health care professional.
