At the Calgary Ear Centre (CEC), clients have access to professionals who have knowledge and experience helping those with Tinnitus and other sound sensitivities including Hyperacusis, Phonophobia, and Misophonia. Regardless of the health challenges, you may be facing, it is possible to improve the quality of your life by learning how to minimize the impact of these challenges. You can learn to manage the emotional impact of the tinnitus and other sound triggers, once and enjoy life again. We offer both Individual and group sessions.
Individual Sessions are typically 90 minutes in length. Sound sensitivity questionnaires are completed by you prior to the appointment so that your specific areas of concern can be addressed. Recommendations will be given, keeping your goals in mind. You may be referred to other professionals who help those with ear-related concerns so that you receive a multi-disciplinary approach to manage your concerns. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to this appointment.
While you may have been told that “nothing that can be done”, there are many skills that you can learn to turn despair into hope. By regaining a sense of control, you will be empowered to reduce the distress caused by the tinnitus and ultimately enhance your quality of life. Successful coping with Tinnitus and other Sound Sensitivities is enhanced with the implementation of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques.
