Tinnitus Retraining Therapy
Tinnitus is the perception of hearing noises that are not caused by an outside source. Tinnitus can affect people of all ages, including children, but it is more common in people aged over 65.
Individuals who suffer from tinnitus liken the sound to:
Music or singing
Tinnitus retraining therapy helps you to tune out the sound and become less aware of it by retraining the way your brain responds to tinnitus.
Our chief audiologist, Jean Hegarty, specialises in tinnitus retraining therapy and provides a full and comprehensive rehabilitation service. By working closely with a hearing professional, patients can reduce stress levels caused by tinnitus and enjoy a better quality of life as a result.
Tinnitus retraining therapy aims to teach the brain to ignore the source of your tinnitus with the aid of devices and or psychological therapy. Combining these efforts will help to eliminate anxiety associated with tinnitus and divert attention from the tinnitus noise.
