Tinnitus Counselling London

Tinnitus Counselling is one of the first stages of problematic tinnitus recovery. Problematic tinnitus is characterised by someone having a negative cognitive and somatic response to a tinnitus trigger. Tinnitus recovery starts with learning how to manage tinnitus symptoms eventually leading to tinnitus habituation and cessation of tinnitus symptoms.

Tinnitus counselling helps you to feel supported in your tinnitus recovery, helps you to air your fears and frustrations and provides practical help for tinnitus difficulties. Our tinnitus counselling provides the base for other bespoke approaches we might use.

  • Do you become fixated on the tinnitus and struggle to think about anything else?
