Sleep disturbance is one of the most common complaints from people with tinnitus affecting between 50-70% of people attending tinnitus clinics.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a psychological talking therapy which has been shown to help manage insomnia. CBTi is now part of the NICE guidelines for the management of long term insomnia (NICE 2014). This study, lead by Dr Laurence McKenna and Dr Liz Marks, will investigate the effectiveness of CBTi as a treatment of tinnitus-related insomnia. Sleep Hygiene (an approach commonly used in the tinnitus clinics) will be used as a control.

If you, or someone close to you, have tinnitus, you will know how difficult it can be to manage. If we can find more ways to help people control their symptoms, more people will be able to break free from tinnitus, and live their lives again.
