My name is Maryam Shabbir and I am a student at the University of Nottingham. I am currently conducting a research project as part of my MSc thesis for my MSc in Management Psychology at the University of Nottingham.

I have created an online survey which should take approximately 10-15 minutes. The survey entails providing some basic demographic information followed by questions regarding your tinnitus, your well-being and your job. No personal identifiable information will be asked to ensure anonymity and your participation is entirely voluntary. Through this survey, we hope to examine how tinnitus impacts work activities and the well-being of individuals with tinnitus.

You are eligible if:

  • you are 18 years or older
  • you have tinnitus
  • you are employed (part-time/full-time/self-employed).


I am hoping to recruit as many participants as possible, so if you fit the eligibility criteria and are interested in participating, I’d love to hear from you.

If you send me an email at [email protected] I can provide you with the link to the survey.

You can download the information sheet below before you decide to participate as this will provide you with more details about the study.


Your explicit consent will be required at the start of the survey before you begin. In case you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us (details have been provided below).
