'This book offers real hope' David Stockdale, CEO, British Tinnitus Association

Tinnitus can be a difficult and distressing condition to manage, and many people with tinnitus are currently left to fend for themselves.

Misophonia is an increasingly recognized, and equally distressing, condition which is likewise often overlooked by the medical profession, despite the acute anxiety it generates in those experiencing it.  

However, prospects for recovery have never been better, based on recent advances in psychology, auditory neuroscience and medicine. Because tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia present very differently and idiosyncratically from individual to individual, self-help techniques can often be effective in minimizing the distress caused by these disorders, which can range from lack of sleep and irritability, to loss of concentration and confidence.

The latest edition of Living with Tinnitus and Hyperacusis looks at strategies for living with tinnitus, hyperacusis and misophonia, and includes a complete programme for recovery. It features the latest research from the fields of psychology, neuroscience and medicine to offer a full overview of the causes, impact, and most effective treatments available. It has practical advice on relaxation and sound therapy as well as insights into relieving the stress of auditory conditions.
