So What is Involved?
CBT involves examining how you discern your problems, what you actively do about them and how these factors influence the way you see your problem and how it affects you. The CBT therapist encourages you and offers support in changing how you perceive things and what you do so that your problem, or the effect of it, is greatly lessened. For over 30 years, CBT has been successfully used in tinnitus management. It does not eradicate tinnitus, but scientific research shows that tinnitus related distress can be quite significantly reduced by this therapy. This approach is shown to have the strongest evidence of benefit.
