North Derbyshire Tinnitus Support Group

The tinnitus support group run interactive sessions that help teach and find ways to manage your tinnitus.  There are opportunities to speak to others and share your story and how it affects you.  The sessions will help you to understand your tinnitus and find ways to manage.

The Tinnitus Support group also aim to be proactive as we raise awareness to the effects of excessive loud noise on our hearing system and especially to inform young people.  They attend and promote their group at health and safety conferences and other functions.  Their Counsellors are Audrey Carlin, Greg Hart and Stella Reddington and Joanne has recently undertaken the Tinnitus Advisor Training run by the British Tinnitus Association (BTA).   They feel, therefore, that they can offer positive and helpful support to anyone experiencing tinnitus.
