Tinnitus Counselling

Tinnitus Counselling is available in Paddington London and Cuffley, Potters Bar Hertfordshire.

Our Tinnitus Counselling facilitates a process of change on a practical, somatic and psychological level. This process enables you to change the relationship you have with your tinnitus which enables you to relax again, reduce tinnitus symptoms and habituate to tinnitus.

Tinnitus counselling requires an integrated approach in order to retrain your brain and nervous system to accommodate and transform your reaction to a tinnitus stimulus. When you do this you will reduce tinnitus symptoms, reduce your reaction to a tinnitus stimulus which will pave the way to living a life free from problematic tinnitus.

Our tinnitus counselling is more directive than traditional counselling. This means that we will provide you with support in order to help you through your difficulty but also enable you to make changes to help you manage and reduce tinnitus symptoms.

Do you experience these symptoms?

  • Inability to relax
  • Feelings of anxiety when you hear your tinnitus?
  • Do you become fixated on the tinnitus and struggle to think about anything else?
  • Do you get stuck in a negative tinnitus cycle?

If  the answer is yes to any of the above our tinnitus counselling will help you.
