What is an Audiologist?
An Audiologist is a para-medical professional trained in the prevention, diagnosis, management and non-medical treatment of hearing disorders in adults and children.

Why choose a profession with the focus on hearing and hearing loss?
‘Hearing loss is one of the most common health problems in most developing countries’
Research worldwide shows that 1 in every 7 people has some degree of hearing loss with 1 in every 10 people to such an extent that they will benefit from a hearing aid.

Hearing loss impacts on every aspect of quality of life from effective communication to relationships and decisions about the future. Hearing loss is “invisible” and often misunderstood, creating the incorrect impression that “hearing” or “not hearing” someone’s voice is a choice! People with hearing loss do not have that choice.


The motto of the practice reflects a strong believe that

“Every Voice Should Be Heard”

(How you then choose to respond to what you heard…
that is your own choice!)

Practice logo: The “Koru”

  • The koru as logo was inspired by a sentimental visit to New Zealand where the koru is a well known symbol in the Maori culture. The word “koru” means “loop”. The koru is a spiral, symbolic of the opening fern frond.
  • The koru is a spiral, symbolic of the opening fern frond. It depicts awakening of the soul, new beginnings, positive change and personal growth.
  • The koru also resembles the shape of the cochlea (the shell part of the inner ear).


The practice offers a variety of services grouped into three main categories:

  • Assessment of hearing ability
  • Management of hearing loss/disability

Selective hearing should be a choice … not an excuse!
