It is estimated that Tinnitus effects 250 million people worldwide, with over 6 million estimated to suffer in the UK. If you are suffering from tinnitus you are not alone. All too often people are told there is nothing one can do about the condition but this is not the case. At Help in Hearing we offer full tinnitus assessments and a structured tinnitus counselling programme. Says audiologist Selma Becker: “We use various techniques and devices to help sufferers manage and live with tinnitus including sound therapy and masking or aids which not only enhance hearing but offer sound relaxation.” For this reason, Help in Hearing’s Practice Manager, Gilly Wright, has recently set up a new support group for local people with tinnitus in Marlow and Farnham Common.
A launch event of the tinnitus support group, featuring a talk by BTA Chief Executive David Stockdale and guest speaker Jono Heale took place in January 2018 at Help In Hearing’s Marlow practice in Glade Road. Dates of future tinnitus support group events are shown below and we will also announce these on Facebook and Twitter.
