Tinnitus Treatment Toolbox

2013 Eric Hoffer Award Winner

“A straight forward, practical guide written by a registered audiologist who had severe tinnitus. Her book is informative and provides a number of strategies and techniques to assist in habituating.

She provide real life examples as well. As someone with tinnitus, I found this book to be the best of all I have encountered in doing research.”



GENRE: Nonfiction, hearing health, self-help



I was told “nothing could be done” about my tinnitus. I refused to believe it, so I became my own guinea pig. I tried proven options plus not so proven ideas. Over time, I was able to put together a coping toolbox with tools for intensive care, flare-ups, and everyday use. I wanted to share the message that “something can be done.” 


Written by a clinical audiologist with over 20 years experience, Tinnitus Treatment Toolbox is a great resource for people with tinnitus (ear noise). The author also has tinnitus, and has used treatment tools to go from severe tinnitus distress to coping well. Many people with tinnitus also have hearing loss or sound sensitivity (hyperacusis).

Tinnitus Treatment Toolbox describes a wide range of traditional and alternative treatment approaches and coping strategies. Information is based on scientific research review as well as the author’s personal and clinical experience.



“Tinnitus is a name given to noises in the ears that people hear when there is no outside noise source. In other words, you are hearing something that nobody else can heat It is extremely common. Why don’t people talk about it? It is probably because tinnitus is also invisible to other people’s eyes and ears. People with tinnitus often feel uncomfortable telling other people “I hear noises in my ears (or head) , but nobody else can hear them.” As an audiologist doing hearing tests and counselling, I have often been the first person people have told about their tinnitus. I have also personally had tinnitus for over 20 years, and telling people about it has never come up naturally in conversation. Tinnitus is very much a hidden symptom…”
