Ringing in the ears is a term we often hear; however, tinnitus can sound like anything to the individual. If you think you are affected by tinnitus, your first step is to undergo a professional evaluation.
Counselling with an experienced local audiologist who is trained in managing tinnitus improves your chances of success in regaining your quality of life. The effects of tinnitus can often be minimised by a combination of counselling and sound stimulation.
During this appointment your audiologist will obtain a thorough understanding of your specific tinnitus experience and how it affects your quality of life. They will also assess your hearing, explain results and discuss management options. A tinnitus assessment takes approximately one hour.
