Tinnitus Support Group


The word 'tinnitus' comes from the Latin word for 'ringing' and is the perception of sound in the absence of any corresponding external sound. Approximately 5% of the adult population in the UK experience persistent or troublesome tinnitus.


There are a number of ways in which troublesome tinnitus can be managed to help reduce its presence and to avoid or reduce other unwelcomed effects such as anxiety, tension or disturbed sleep. Doing something to manage tinnitus better can help avoid a vicious circle of increased anxiety or frustration which otherwise can lead to greater tinnitus.


The Tinnitus Support Group exists to provide a greater understanding of tinnitus and its effect on those who experience tinnitus. We have both formal and informal discussions and talks relating to tinnitus and associated problems. External speakers are invited to contribute in the formal meetings and share their knowledge on advances in the field of tinnitus treatment and research.
