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.

As we discussed in a previous article about The Psychology of Tinnitus, the best way to live well with tinnitus is to habituate to it, yet the biggest obstacles to habituation are worry and attentional focus. When tinnitus is severe and causes unhealthy levels of stress in the person experiencing it, the person can focus too much attention on the sound which slows down the habitation process (the acceptance) and reduces their ability to engage in other cognitive tasks.

Mindfulness does not aim to change the tinnitus’s nature or sound, but the cognitive-based therapy can lead to it becoming less intrusive, to a point where a person can go on to live well.

At Cubex, we understand the importance of good cognitive skills and cultivating a state of high-functioning mental and emotional capability to respond to life’s demands; especially with hearing loss or tinnitus. In addition to our highly qualified Audiological Scientists, our team also consists of clinical wellbeing experts who support people with strategies to improve cognitive health.

We do this through the CALM programme which is a mindfulness-based cognitive wellbeing programme uniquely developed by Cubex.

Our approach is simple; we facilitate a CALM state of living through our four pillars:

– Cognitive Wellbeing
– Audiological Awareness
– Lifestyle Practices
– Meditation & Clinical Mindfulness

The CALM programme combines clinical tools with real-world auditory and cognitive support, clinical mindfulness & meditation. Techniques used in CALM aims to help patients recover from stress and fatigue while increasing their capacity to adapt to life’s demands and to engage with the world with greater ease and awareness.
