Tinnitus and Hypnotherapy - turning down the noise...

Tinnitus is the term for sounds that generated from within your body rather than arriving from the outside. It is usually described as a “ringing in the ears” but can actually be a range of different sounds ranging from buzzing to hissing to whistling. It is estimated that as many as 30% of us will be affected by Tinnitus at some point in our lives. For most of us this will be nothing more than a relatively minor hindrance in our day to day lives. For others, though, it can be a very real challenge that proves to be distressing. When it is at a serious level it can lead to depression and insomnia. Like so many conditions it can be worsened by stress and anxiety. In fact, exploring ways to reduce your stress and anxiety is the first key step to lessening the occurrence of this condition.

It is believed that Tinnitus occurs when we have mental or physical change around our hearing. There are three types of Tinnitus and these are:

  • Objective: The sound is real – you are not imagining it.

  • Subjective: The sound is produced within the brain itself.

  • Pulsatile: The sound is related to the person’s heartbeat.

Therapy and hypnotherapy provide powerful and effective ways to dramatically reduce or even eliminate your Tinnitus. One of the first ways it does that is by focussing your attention on changes that might well be beneficial in your lifestyle to begin this process. Exploring any factors or stress and anxiety methodically can alone dramatically impact the condition.

Then there is the hypnotherapy itself. In and of itself hypnosis is deeply relaxing and calming. This acts almost like a reset for the mind, a respite from the noise of day to day life. So entering the state of hypnosis is immediately beneficial but the key here is that as a hypnotherapist I can work with your subconscious mind to achieve change. This allows your mind to work through required changes which will lead to some measure of improvement. The other aspect of hypnotherapy is that suggestions can be made as to how the mind should react when it “hears” the perceived sound. Rather than becoming more agitated and more anxious, a wholly understandable reaction, it can be invited to become calmer and feel the sound diminishing.

Hypnotherapy has been shown to have a very high success rate in reducing Tinnitus effectively. Studies have shown that it has a greater impact than counselling alone. This could well be down to the relaxed nature of hypnosis itself. The way it invites the mind to become calm and tranquil.
