Tinnitus Week – 3rd to 9th February 2020 #tinnitusweek
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, commonly referred to as CBT, is a talking therapy which helps you to develop coping strategies to deal with a variety of problems you may be facing. Although CBT does not work to remove your problems directly, it can assist in developing ways to manage them in a positive way. CBT focuses on how we feel and think about a situation and looks to challenge negative thought patterns which are associated with it and may be presenting problems. This can help change the process and break any negative cycles which have developed.
Although cognitive therapy was developed as a psychological treatment for pain, depression, anxiety, and other psychological conditions, it also can apply to tinnitus. If tinnitus causes a specific behaviour, behavioural therapy using conditioning principles can be applied to the treatment of that behaviour. Whilst CBT cannot cure or eliminate tinnitus, it is one of the used therapy methods for tinnitus.
