About the group

The tinnitus support group will help you to understand your emotional reactions to tinnitus (which may be stress and anxiety) and will help you to retrain your responses to it, and give you advice on ways to manage your tinnitus. As well as providing advice and information about tinnitus, we are here to listen. Talking to someone about any anxieties you may have about tinnitus and any distress it may cause can be therapeutic in itself.

Additionally, the group has achieved the BTA Gold Standard for Support Groups

Walking outside can lead to more awareness as we see so much more than when we are rushing from one place to another. It is also wonderful and beneficial to share the experience with others.
