Welcome to Kingston Hospital Tinnitus Support Group

Our Group offers a caring community of like-minded individuals who reassure and support one another.

Our Group serves to provide comfort, reduce isolation and improve coping skills by:

  • Providing a warm, accessible and safe place for respectful sharing of experiences and coping strategies.
  • Providing opportunities for people to connect with each other in a calm and reassuring atmosphere.
  • Offering generalised advice in an open and empathetic non-judgemental manner. This advice is not a substitute for medical advice.
  • Making recommendations to the hospital for the development of tinnitus, hearing loss and hyperacusis services and facilities offered by the Trust.

The Group is open to people experiencing tinnitus directly, as well as to their partners and other  family members.

Group meetings are unstructured in nature so to allow attendees to lead the course of the meetings. Sometimes guest speakers are invited. During the meetings people are encouraged to share their experiences and feelings, actively participate, respect the need for confidentiality and give everyone a chance to talk.
