Tinnitus, which most people know as ‘ringing in the ear’, is a condition in which we hear repetitive sound(s) that are inside our own body, rather than on the outside. Tinnitus is not necessarily just a ringing, but can also be a buzzing, whistling, humming, hissing or pulsing noise. It can cause us to be hypersensitive to sounds, or to be less able to hear. Tinnitus can be organic (caused by a physical issue), or sometimes there is no physical condition or explanation.
Tinnitus can be a very distressing condition.
It is often linked with anxiety, where people become less able to ignore or filter out certain information, and then the mind becomes ‘tuned into’ it. Our primitive brain may see this noise as important to our survival and thinks we need to be constantly aware of it – and so it becomes very difficult or impossible to ignore.
Hypnotherapy can help to calm down the stress response, and therefore lessening the anxiety and helping to ‘tune out’ the unwanted sounds, or to cope better and be able to enjoy life even if the sounds remain to some extent.
During your FREE Initial Consultation, I will explain about how the brain works in relation to tinnitus.
I will also give you a free relaxation trance (digital or CD) to begin the process.
