Absolutely thrilled to be featured as guest professional on this week’s fabulously wonderful Hypnosis-Weekly podcast!

No cure for tinnitus, hypnosis, hypnotherapy, Devon, Dorset, information,

These weekly podcasts are rammed full of fascinating facts, theories and insights and it was truly a real honour to be invited alongside people I regard as my internationally respected peers.  If you are interested in hypnosis, they offer a wide and varied opportunity to learn more about all manner of different approaches to the field from the zany to the practical and sober.

New research maps out the way for helping people who suffer from tinnitus

Just a quick share of this interesting research.

I’m so excited that science is becoming better able to track what is actually happening when people experience tinnitus.  It is such a distressing condition. Many people come up against impatience and  dismissive recommendations to ‘just accept it’ – it’s about time that decent research and evidence became headline news. It’s the only way people will really begin to understand what it is and what type of interventions are most likely to succeed.

I am incredibly proud that my approach is already informed by research which similarly shows that in addition to the auditory triggers and perception of the sound, there are non-auditory processes at play in other areas of the brain too – for example with regards to emotion (limbic area) and attention. Too often interventions for tinnitus focus only on the sound itself and miss the vital distinction between the noise itself and the mechanisms that promote it within the broader system.

That’s what makes my approach different and, in my humble opinion, so much better! Research and clinical experience shows that there are ways that people can exercise control over non-auditory aspects of their tinnitus and thus can change how it impacts their life – even to the point where natural habituation can begin and the sound may be relegated to background noise. Much like people who live next to a railway line yet learn not to notice the sound of the trains anymore.




What a lovely surprise!  I have a mention in the Beauty Bible too! Sarah Stacey, health editor, Mail on Sunday YOU magazine has featured a similar article about tinnitus on her own website too.  Thank you Sarah!


Mail on Sunday YOU magazine -Deborah Sims Hypnotherapist gets a mention!

I have been interviewed by Sarah Stacey, Health Editor for the Mail on Sunday YOU magazine.  Very exciting!  Sarah had heard about the work I had been doing on tinnitus.  One of my hypnotherapy case study clients is so thrilled with his results she interviewed us both about it.  How wonderful is that?  Click HERE for the Mail pages or to stay with Hypnotherapy Boutique, click:  FULL ARTICLE
