Hearing therapy

An appointment with a Hearing Therapist will complement hearing aid provision or may offer an alternative, by exploring other means of managing hearing difficulties. 

We provide counselling and advice to help address problems experienced not only with hearing loss but also with Tinnitus, Hyperacusis, Auditory Processing Disorder (ADP) and other associated disorders.

Hearing Therapists also can advise on equipment to help with hearing difficulties and tinnitus, as well as benefits and allowances to support daily living, work or studies. We also provide Deaf Awareness Training, lip reading classes and run a Support Group for people with tinnitus
