Misophonia is a disorder that affects the sufferer’s emotional and physical response to certain noises. It is characterized by intense distress and emotional reactions when hearing specific sounds, such as eating or chewing noises, tapping, or whistling. Misophonia can have a significant impact on relationships and quality of life.

Due to the distress of Misophonia, individuals will often try to avoid the triggering noises by leaving the room, wearing headphones or moving away from the noise source. Misophonia frequently leads to social difficulties and can be especially difficult for those in public places such as restaurants, class rooms, and movie theaters. It can also cause challenges within the home environment, as people with Misophonia often lash out at the sources of their distress – this means family conflict can occur, or relationships can suffer.


Common sounds that can tigger Misophonia:

    • Chewing
    • Tapping
    • Typing
    • Whistling
    • Breathing
    • Humming
    • Coughing
    • Certain voices
    • Smacking lips
    • Foot tapping 
    • Writing with pens and pencil
    • Slamming doors
    • Drawers
    • Eating utensils
    • Clicking teeth


People With Misophonia Will Often

    • Eat away from others
    • Avoid triggers
    • Use noise canceling headphones or AirPods
    • Become highly aggressive or enraged by trigger sounds


Fortunately, Misophonia can often be treated with evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure response prevention (ERP) therapy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) focuses on identifying and addressing unhelpful thoughts and behaviors associated with Misophonia. CBT helps individuals recognize patterns in their distress responses, identify triggers, understand how they cope with Misophonia, and learn new ways of interacting with their discomfort.

Finding The Right Help

Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) therapy is based on the premise that Misophonia can be treated by gradually and systematically exposing individuals to sounds that trigger Misophonia reactions in a controlled environment. This allows individuals to better manage their reactions.

When seeking evidence-based therapy for Misophonia its important to seek out a true specialist that has specific training in both CBT and exposure therapy so that the disorder can not only be evaluated properly, but a customized treatment plan can be created that is empirically supported. Often therapists say they provide CBT when in actuality they are providing only talk therapy. Misophonia treatment requires specific tools and skills to make it successful, so it is important that you work with a CBT/ERP specialist.

Working with a Misophonia specialist can provide individuals suffering from Misophonia the opportunity to be not only heard and validated, but to also create a treatment plan that can help them manage Misophonia symptoms and improve their quality of life.

With evidence-based therapy, individuals suffering from Misophonia have the opportunity to effectively manage their reactions and find lasting relief. At GroundWork Counseling in Orlando we are pleased to offer Misophonia treatment with evidence-based therapies. Our Misphonia specialists have experience in both ERP and CBT, providing the specialized care needed to effectively treat Misophonia.
