Some people with tinnitus may find they have greater difficulty getting off to sleep, or going back to sleep if they wake during the night. A new research project, is currently looking for volunteers to take part. The research is looking into ways of managing tinnitus related insomnia, and will use psychological approaches to managing insomnia.
Have tinnitus for more than 6 months
Have insomnia for more than 3 months
Your insomnia is a result of your tinnitus
You have already been assessed by a doctor and/or an audiologist
You are happy to try a psychological approach
The approach to insomnia in this study does not involve the use of medicines. If you are already taking medicine to help you sleep you might still be suitable for the study if you are able to leave your medicines unchanged for the duration of the study.
To take part in the study, you will need to attend regular appointments over a six month period at the Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London.

The research has been approved by University College London (UCL), the NHS ethics committee and the University College London Hospitals (UCLH) R&D department. It is sponsored by the British Tinnitus Association.
