Question: I am seeing a therapist who recommends hearing testing for clients. Why would hearing affect my therapy sessions?
Answer: Undiagnosed and untreated hearing loss will have a negative impact on self-esteem and social interactions which can often result in depression and/or anxiety. Hearing loss may not be the main cause of your therapy, but it can indirectly impact many needs in your life.
Diminished hearing can and will have a direct impact on personality and social interactions, resulting in a less confident approach to life and sometimes surfacing in paranoia or even anger. By treating the symptoms of hearing loss, patients have witnessed significant improvement in their overall mental and physical health.
