Mindfulness offers hope to tinnitus sufferers

On 25, Sep 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We were really pleased to see this article in the Guardian discussing cognitive therapy and mindfulness as effective tools for the management of tinnitus.

The article discusses the use of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy as a tool for people experiencing tinnitus, helping them to learn how to accept and live well with tinnitus, rather than fighting and pushing it away.

The Psychology of Tinnitus

On 21, Aug 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We talk about tinnitus a lot and that is because tinnitus is one of the most prevalent symptoms that humanity faces and it often causes increased levels of unhealthy psychological distress in those who experience it.

It sounds daunting to people to hear that tinnitus does not have a cure, but there are ways to manage and live well with tinnitus, without any suffering or stress.  At Cubex, and with the guidance of the British Tinnitus Association, we utilise mindfulness and meditation practices to learn to live with tinnitus in a positive and calm way.

Improving your mental health in 2018

On 26, Jan 2018 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Rosie Williams

We wanted to share an article written by The Telegraph about the current state of mental health and ways you can look to improve your mental health. One in 10 teenage girls are being referred to NHS specialist mental health services and one in three GP sick notes are for mental health reasons, but we are now in a time of great change for mental health.

There is a much greater awareness of mental health and whilst the health industry is much better equipped to help those suffering, the article discusses putting some of the onus back onto self-care regimes.

It provides a place for community, connection & culture with the vision to create an oasis of space amidst London’s hustle and bustle.

Meditation tips for beginners

On 16, Sep 2017 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Michael James Wong

Every day we apply cognitive energy to navigate through our auditory world, especially when living in a loud, chaotic, fast paced city like London. For the most part we are unaware of the mental skills and effort involved. However, as our natural ability to hear starts to reduce, we become even more reliant on our cognitive skills to make sense of the world and this increases the load on our brains which is why it comes as no surprise that untreated audiological conditions can lead to anxiety, stress, depression, poorer communication and eventual isolation.

Repeated experiences of stress is actually damaging for brain health and halts the birth of new neurons. Fortunately, our brains have the remarkable ability to change and form new healthy neural connections, we call this neuroplasticity.

The act of mindfulness and regular meditation practice promotes the relaxation response in the brain and has the potential to encourage new neural network connections and reduce the levels of anxiety and stress that are usually associated with hearing loss and tinnitus.(1)It increases our capacity to notice what is happening around us, giving us a fuller perspective on the present moment and can help us improve our attention and ability to concentrate and focus on something specific while ignoring distractions. It enables us to intentionally shape the direction of our plasticity and change the way we respond to life’s challenges. Simply put, we can use our thoughts and our breath to positively influence our mental & physical physiology.

There are a variety of Meditation techniques, styles and guidelines to help put the mind at ease, increase mental clarity and improve cognitive reserve in the most effective way. There are a few easy and accessible practices that are relevant for the modern man or women. In this article we speak to Cubex Clinical Mindfulness & Wellness Programmes Facilitator, Michael James Wong about the small steps that we can take to start a process of cultivating well-being.

How to maintain that optimistic, revitalised outlook on life that you started the year with

On 21, Mar 2017 | In Clinical Mindfulness | By Henrietta Greene

January starts with a bang but soon becomes a drag. And then February – a month of nothingness. Not the new year, and not yet close enough to March to warrant walks in the brighter air with a lighter heart. Before you know it, in walks Spring with it’s progressively longer days, medley of bird songs and signs of renewal.
