Gary Breadner

“The tinnitus had a major effect on my mood and there were points when I thought this is my life; this is what it’s going to be like from now on. I didn’t share much about it with my family and kept much of it to myself to a large extent.”

  Clinic - Cheltenham


patient default female

Sue Hale

Elizabeth Spencer

“After a terrible ear infection during a particularly stressful period of work, I woke up one morning with tinnitus in both ears. It was high-pitched, hissing and very distressing. Even when my ear infection was treated and cleared, the tinnitus remained.”

  Treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  Clinic - Manchester


Barry Parker

“I went to see my GP and explained that I couldn’t live with it, that I wanted to end it. He said he’d have to section me, which I didn’t want, but I knew I couldn’t live with the ringing. Then, my wife and my son found The Tinnitus Clinic on the internet.”

Jane Mellor

"There is a lot of quackery surrounding a condition such as tinnitus, but this treatment is scientifically validated and it was this that attracted me to it. The tinnitus is still there - but it’s less shrill, and I hope one day it will fade until it no longer bothers me."

Keith Kemsley

Keith, a retired farmer from Kent, first noticed his tinnitus about three years ago. “It sounded like a very loud ringing in my left ear. Quite frankly, it destroyed my every day and night. There was no respite at all and it was so intrusive. I felt like I couldn’t look forward to anything at all."

  Treatment - Tinnitus Desensitisation Therapy™

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


Astrid Pryce

Retired florist from Middlesex, Astrid Pryce first experienced tinnitus about four and a half years ago. “It didn’t start over night; it was a gradual thing. Six months previous to this, I’d looked down as I was getting out of the car and both of my ears went pop, like when a plane comes into land. It seemed quite strange. I held my nose and blew out, to try and clear my ears; both ears cleared but my right ear quickly blocked again and felt pressured. I kept trying but I couldn’t clear it.”

  Treatment - Tinnitus Desensitisation Therapy™

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


Olive Brady

"In the left ear it does seem to be coming down... It sometimes feels a bit stringy now like it's trying to fade out a bit… You get up one day and think this is an improvement and you are so happy about it."

  Treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  Clinic - Manchester


James Flood

"I noticed an improvement to my tinnitus nearly immediately with a lowering of frequency and diffusion of the tone. My stress level is lower, so life is better as a result."

  Treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


Lesley McCaughey

"It started many years ago – probably about 30. It developed gradually but became more noticeable after a particularly stressful period in my life. I saw a Specialist about how to reduce the high-pitched noise, and was told that I would have to learn to live with it. So that’s what I did. I just got on with it.”

  Treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


Karan Khemka

"I experienced the most dynamic change within the first two weeks, followed by an ongoing progressive improvement in symptoms. I went from not being sure if I would sleep at night, to dropping off straight away. From being unsure if I'd have a good day, to having a succession of them.

It's hard to describe how much the condition changed, but it's gone from feeling like my head would split open, to being a very mild annoyance, like a scratch on your foot – and the relief has been sustained. It really seems to work and, at long last, I'm enjoying my life again!"

  Treatment - Acoustic CR® Neuromodulation

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


Peter Humphries

"I'm amazed to find that the treatment is working. Once the clinic had assessed my tinnitus, I was given the small clip-on device and earphones. I didn't need any further guidance; treatment was very easy and, as it was non-invasive, I had no concerns.

I first noticed a change after about ten days. Since then, there's been a noticeable change every couple of days as my tinnitus starts to disappear. My advice would be to give it a go! It seems to be working for me, so I'd strongly recommend it."

Paul Hambledon

‘Absolutely it’s worked for me. I’d recommend going and have the assessment, because the Clinic can then advise you on whether you are suitable. If you are, then I would say go for it.’

  Clinic - Manchester


patient default male

Matthew Hood

“Sometimes if I am tired or a bit stressed with work or something then the ringing’s really loud… then I will just get the device and put it in my ear and give myself a bit of break. I can turn it up loud or quiet depending on how I feel and that makes me feel more in control.”

  Treatment - Tinnitus Desensitisation Therapy™

  Clinic - London, Harley Street


patient default male

Tom Johnson

"It was the first time in seventeen years that I have been able to relax fully knowing I can just plug these things in. The tinnitus doesn’t disappear completely, but it’s greatly reduced and I can count on it working almost always. I did notice that when I wasn’t wearing the devices my tinnitus had also abated quite a lot."
