      Good afternoon Dr,

      After six months, I'm in a phase I hear my tinnitus although strong almost never bothers me not.

      Believes that over time will become more noticeable and that I can do to make it so?

      Sorry for the translation from Spanish to English

      Have a nice day

      Joan

      Hi Joan
      the translation was a little tricky. Most people habituate to tinnitus naturally, on their own, within about 12-18 months. Scientists believe that anxious attention to the sound slows that process down. CBT focuses on changing your relationship with the sound and activating fully in your life. Hope that helps. if you have any more specific questions please let me know.
      Best wishes
      Dr Hubbard
