Tinnitus Care Options

A holistic approach to tinnitus support.

Your audiologist should always take Tinnitus seriously. At Hearables we don’t believe that you should just ‘learn to live with it’. You should be provided a range of tailored care options by your hearing care professional to enhance your quality of life.

We don’t want you to cope. We want you to thrive.

One in ten people have Tinnitus, but what is it?

Tinnitus is often described as the perception of a sound with no external source.

Tinnitus is very personal. The symptoms vary significantly from person to person. A small number of people that experience tinnitus find it life affecting. If you are one of these individuals you are not alone. Below we have outlined a variety of topics that you can ask your audiologist to discuss further with you. It’s important to get support as soon as possible if you are struggling.

Understanding Tinnitus

Sometimes tinnitus can feel quite lonely. There are people out there to lend a helping hand.

Your audiologist or hearing therapist can help you to understand tinnitus with personalised advice. This approach may not make it go away, but it may mean that you notice your tinnitus less.

Worrying about your tinnitus can often make it worse. Making sense of the causes of tinnitus and why you may keep noticing it can help you to take control. Most people find this approach is helpful.

Talking Therapies

Don’t stay silent. Talk.

Tinnitus is often made worse by higher levels of stress. Talking about your tinnitus can help to reduce your stress levels and the distress caused by tinnitus.

Most audiologists are not trained therapists, but they can introduce you to basic talking therapy concepts.

If you find this approach useful, they can guide you to the appropriate professionals that are formally qualified in delivering this form of care.

Using Sound

Playing Sound can help you hear your tinnitus less.

Sound is unlikely to make your tinnitus go away completely but many people find that playing sounds fom various devices gives them temporary relief from their tinnitus.

Your audiologist can advise you on how to implement this form of care appropriately and safely.

There are a number of devices designed to play relaxing sounds which your audiologist can introduce you to. If you have hearing loss, there are also many hearing aids that can play a range of sounds at a level appropriate for your hearing needs.

Group Support

Find support with like-minded individuals in your area.

Many towns have tinnitus support groups and are a fantastic resource for individuals with tinnitus.
