Irwin Mitchell has teamed up with the Birmingham & District Tinnitus Group to create an event on September 27th where sufferers of the condition can gather and learn new techniques for dealing with their symptoms.

The Calm Day, which will take place at the Birmingham offices of Irwin Mitchell on Temple Street in the City Centre, aims to help sufferers change the way they think and feel about tinnitus.

Tinnitus is a condition that leaves victims hearing noises in their ears of head when there is no external sound. It often presents as constant background noise such as ringing, humming, buzzing or hissing. The condition can be extremely frustrating for sufferers and their family and friends.

There are a number of causes of tinnitus, but one of the most common is exposure to loud noises over a prolonged period during employment. 

A programme of events has been outlined for the day, which will run between 10am and 3:30pm, including a mindfulness session run by Karen Hall, an experienced teacher of the technique.

Louise Scott, a solicitor at Irwin Mitchell’s Birmingham office and a member of the Birmingham & District Tinnitus Group committee, said:
Expert Opinion
We are delighted to be able to host this event of our Birmingham offices in on September 27th. It is vital those who suffer with tinnitus are able to attend events such as this that aims to help them deal with their condition.

“Through our work we have seen the damage tinnitus can do to those affected by it. It can be extremely frustrating for sufferers, as well as their friends and family, and it is crucial these events take place to enable people to discuss their condition with other sufferers and get help and advice from experts.”
Louise Scott, Solicitor

Mike Behan, Birmingham & District Tinnitus Group committee member, will hold a 3 Principles Talk and Hearing Therapist Sylvia Roberts will lead a relaxation session.

The day will be free to members of the group and £10 to non-members and all refreshments will be provided free of charge.
