Tinnitus E-Programme

Go to content
To be used:
  • After 5-6 weeks of using the breath work consistently 4-6 times on a daily basis and
  • The physiological relaxation 2-3 times alongside 2-3 of the breathing exercises
  • After identifying your main cognitive distortions that enable you to identify "alternative balanced thoughts" in the Thought record  

Thought records are generic to cognitive therapy for cognitive reframing. Manual thought records are included in the downloadable CBT for Tinnitus Basic Workbook when you are using the process self-directed.

The therapist-supported CBT for Tinnitus E-Programme uses a bespoke electronic reframing tool called the Meaning Adjuster, starting at Stage 5 (of 12). The thought record (electronic version) is introduced later in the process (Stage 9) although most people need no more than the Meaning Adjuster. By Stage 6 (of 12) the Tinnitus Functional Index (TFI) is repeated and compared to the result prior to starting the process at Stage 1.

Used consistently, after balancing top-down and bottom-up brain action over at least 4-6 weeks of consistent and regular breath work and relaxation practice, thought records enable the reframing of negative habit-thinking, establishing, growing and strengthening new neural pathways in the brain (through brain plasticity) to reset perspective, bringing about more objective habit-thinking rather than subjective distorted habit-thinking that causes distress.

Undertanding the difference between objective and subjective thinking is included in the main 12 stage CBT for Tinnitus E-Programme in Stage 5 (of 12), as is Goal Setting in Stage 6 (of 12) that channels "perspective-resets" in to identifying activities in your individual everyday life that you want to renew, change or create.
