Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Tinnitus Support Group 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 Where the group meets As a result of Covid-19 restrictions and social distancing measures, we are introducing online tinnitus support group meetings. Our meetings will offer flexible support, an opportunity to meet members who are managing the condition, all from the comfort of your own home.
