2019 Meetings

January: Feedback and goals - we will be getting feedback about the group meetings, to prompt new ideas, and a chance to set your own goals / resolutions. 

February: "This Helps Me" - We will be asking members to share an activity with the group which helps take your mind off of tinnitus. From painting to crosswords, we'll use this time to share some light hearted activities which might occupy the mind more than the tinnitus!

Ann Welsh will be coming in to talk about aromatherapy. ‘Aromatherapy is an alternative form of holistic therapy that uses essential oils to help improve and balance you both emotionally and physically, while helping you to take time out for yourself, to be mindful and to reconnect with yourself, even for a moment. The aromas experienced through aromatherapy and essential oils have a dynamic effect on the mind and body.’
