CBT for Tinnitus E-Programme | Aims and Objectives

Mission Statement, Aims and Objectives

The research informs us that 1 in 8 of the population reports having tinnitus, yet there is no treatment to remove tinnitus. While the research also informs us that 85% of the one in ten are not troubled by tinnitus, the remaining 15% are. For the 15%, reported tinnitus distress ranges from mild through to very severe tinnitus distress. A solution to this problem is yet to be identified and a “cure” for tinnitus is evasive due to its complex nature, and unknown or, as yet unidentifiable ‘points of origin’ of the electrical activity that is experienced as tinnitus.

Mission Statement
To make as widely available as possible a practical and easy-to-follow set of steps towards reducing tinnitus intrusiveness perception

The CBT for Tinnitus E-Programme aims to provide a structured process that includes:
  • Education
  • Practical exercises to reduce stress reaction in the brain and body
  • Contemporary Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Uses the latest, up to date relevant research and expertise from other fields including trauma, neuroscience, and consciousness studies

  • To alter mid-brain (paleomammalian area of the brain) limbic activity that drives emotional reactions to tinnitus. This reduces cortisol levels in the blood and improves blood flow to the pre-frontal cortex (PFC) allowing for improved sense of control and ability to think with clarity
  • To impart information that educates the user about the mechanism of tinnitus and the systemic processes that drive reaction to tinnitus
  • To teach the user how to implement Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as a user-friendly, contemporary and evidence-based intervention
  • Enable the user to develop a recovery-oriented perspective rather than being stuck in a problem-oriented mindset
  • To evidence clear clinical outcomes using ‘before and after’ research-validated measures that reflect reduced levels of tinnitus distress
