Counseling. Your physician or hearing specialist will also be able to refer you to psychological treatment or support, as tinnitus can be life-changing and hard to deal with, especially when it is a chronic problem.Counseling or CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) can be beneficial with helping with negative thoughts and emotions, sleep and concentration.
Sound Therapy. Many tinnitus sufferers report that the presence of background sound reduces the prominence or the loudness of their tinnitus. The background sound can be present in the environment (e.g. fan noise). Listening to a fan or radio generally is more advantageous if one is attempting to go to sleep. There are non-wearable devices that produce pleasant background sound (e.g. waterfall, ocean, rainfall). Additionally, wearable maskers or sound generators are available that produce a ‘shhh’ noise (these can also be combined with hearing aids).
Hearing aids improve not only communication but reduce the stress associated with intensive listening, and also can partially mask the tinnitus. Several studies have shown power amplification in itself can be very effective in the treatment of tinnitus.
