Tinnitus Treatment Consultation
The first step is to have a thorough consultation, consisting of an audiological profile of your hearing, tinnitus history and a full audiological assessment, which not only looks at your hearing thresholds (the quietest sounds that you can hear), but if any decrease in hearing is identified. Your hearing therapist will explain the mechanisms of hearing and our current understanding of how your tinnitus can be triggered.

Tinnitus Clinic – Hyperacusis Assessment Package
This is a diagnostic examination of your tinnitus or hyperacusis (a condition where normal everyday sounds can seem very loud and even painful). The experience of having hyperacusis can differ between individuals, with some only finding a minor issue with it compared to others who have an acute sensitivity. The management of hyperacusis usually involves the treatment of any medical conditions associated with the condition, counselling and often the use of sound therapy, and in some cases custom-made ear protection may also help.
Tinnitus Therapy – Sound Enrichment Package
Sound enrichment creates a contrast between tinnitus and silence and may involve the use of a wearable noise generator (WNG) – a device similar to a hearing aid. Repetitive non-invasive sounds (like an electric fan, a ticking clock, a radio off-station, or a special freestanding, natural sound generator) can help make a difference because it takes the brain’s focus away from the ringing by reducing the contrast between the background sound and the tinnitus.
Tinnitus Retraining Therapy Package
After your hearing therapy consultation, we will have devised a tailored solution. There is no one size fits all approach, we can use a variety of different treatments to help including cognitive behaviour therapy, hearing aids, tinnitus retraining therapy and mindfulness exercises that will form part of your tinnitus private treatment.

What Our Patients Say About our Private Tinnitus Treatment
Here’s what just one of our patients had to say about his private tinnitus treatment in the UK with Harley Street Hearing:
“It was very nice meeting you, and talking to someone that understands tinnitus. I feel like I’ve really benefited from our appointment, making me feel much more relaxed and at ease with it all. I feel like it’s put me in a much more positive frame of mind towards it, I already feel like my tinnitus and hyperacusis has reduced considerably. I think last night was my best night’s sleep in a while. Thanks again for all the help.! Regards Glen”
