Support Where can I get help? Support groups directory 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 Please check individual event and meeting dates as the group meets at different venues in Chesterfield.
