Tinnitus Adviser Training Course
A key objective of the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) is to, ‘Encourage and promote the provision of sufficiently trained people for the management/treatment of those with tinnitus.’ The internationally recognised Tinnitus Adviser Training allows us to achieve this by offering a counselling-based model of support for use in a range of settings with tinnitus patients/clients.
Delivered by an experienced team and led by a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Registered Psychotherapist, the course aims to build on existing experiences to enable participants to become better equipped to help and support people with tinnitus.
The Tinnitus Adviser Training offered by the BTA is the only course of its type in the UK and is open to people from all sectors of the tinnitus community.
The Aims of the adviser training is
- to raise participants’ awareness and increase their understanding of the use of counselling skills and the counselling process, with a focus on the process of adjustment to living with tinnitus
- to provide an opportunity to practise counselling skills
- to evaluate personal strengths, concerns and issues when working with tinnitus patients/clients
- to increase participants’ understanding of the medical background to the condition of tinnitus, and introduce them to some of the practical management aids available at present
The training consists of input on basic counselling and listening skills coupled with how to respond appropriately to the many enquiries that are received.
There is also input on tinnitus as a medical condition and the audiological services available, so that you have knowledge to share with the people you support.
