CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
It’s a type of psychological therapy that was originally used to treat to depression, but since then it's been proven to help with lots of other conditions, including tinnitus.
CBT helps us understand negative or unrealistic thoughts or beliefs that can make tinnitus worse. It helps you break the downwards spiral by changing them and guides you to a place where you feel more in control. That way, tinnitus becomes less bothersome and you’re more able to focus, rest, sleep, socialise and so on.
