Screaming tantrums

I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for dealing with the screaming that can accompany tantrums. 2.5yo DD doesn't tantrum often, but when she does, she screams incredibly loudly and I find it renders me completely unable to be a decent parent. Normally I take the empathise and comfort approach when she's distressed and it works really well, but I just can't manage it when she screams.

I know she needs me to be with her when she's like this - if I walk away, she gets even more distressed - but I just really can't bear the noise. So I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips to sort of ground yourself in the midst of a tantrum so you don't end up getting really upset and angry too.
