Case study 5 - Sylvia
Feedback from Sylvia: "The brain training I completed last week has been of immense help for me in managing my tinnitus. I have had tinnitus for over 10 years and had therapy at the University of Auckland clinic way back then and learned how to ignore my tinnitus.
Over the past year I have had a few health issues and I started to listen and focus on my tinnitus. It became so loud, and I really became distressed. I joined Tinnitus Tunes and started with using the masking music and relaxation techniques again with great success.
After a few weeks I started the brain training which I completed over about 20 weeks. The result is wonderful. I no longer think about or focus on my tinnitus continuously. I find I can relax and spend quiet times reading whereas before, the tinnitus used to invade my space and annoy me. If I do find myself lapsing into listening to it again, I use my masking music to take my focus away. I am planning to do the brain training again in the future.”
