Tinnitus Awareness Week in Kerry 2015 Tinnitus Awareness Week in Kerry 2015


To mark this year’s Tinnitus Awareness Week we held an information and support morning for the people of Kerry.

A large number attended for the morning, with new and existing clients coming together to chat and to share with others their experience of Tinnitus.

This year our guest speaker was Susan Barrett – an experienced practitioner and teacher of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. Susan explains “Mindfulness teaches us to pay close attention to what is happening right here, right now, in this present moment, with an attitude of kindness towards ourselves and our experience.”

Susan goes on to explain “Mindfulness includes a number of practices, which include developing awareness of the body, the breath and gentle mindful movement. It also supports us to bring attention to our thoughts and our ways of habitually reacting in certain situations. Mindfulness is a practice that can be learnt by anyone of any age and its many benefits have been well researched and documented.”

Many in the group commented that they found the session very enjoyable and informative and felt that these techniques could have a beneficial effect on tinnitus for them.

We plan to continue with our Tinnitus Support Group throughout 2015 and aim to have our next meeting early in March. For anyone interested in joining the group please feel free to contact the office for dates. You will be most welcome. Line Break Image
