About distress caused through tinnitus

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for tinnitus is used when tinnitus intrudes in daily life causing "tinnitus distress"
The CBT for Tinnitus E-Programme:
  • Enables you to change having "tinnitus distress" in to noticing it less and less, and even when you do notice it, it doesn't bother you
  • Is a defined process, worked through at your own pace and used in the order it is set out
  • There is a reason for everything used in the course being not only what it is, but where it is in the process
  • Neuro-psychotherapy and associated neuroscience, with cognitive (and behavioural) therapy woven in to the process, stage by stage
  • Everyone who completes this process as it is set out reaches at least TFI category 2 (tinnitus is a small problem), even those starting with a category 5 (tinnitus is a very big problem)
No two people are the same
Tinnitus distress includes a combination of any or all of the following:
  • Stress, anxiety, frustration, anger, low mood
  • Fear of coping with life in the future
  • Unable to imagine ever being happy again because of tinnitus
  • Ruminating (thinking over and over) about tinntus
  • Poor sleep onset and/or waking in the night unable to return to sleep
  • Difficulty relaxing and partaking in activities previously enjoyed
  • Worry about those close to you because of how you feel and behave
  • The belief that no one with tinnitus like yours can be helped
