What is a Hearing Therapist?

A Hearing Therapist generally works with adults whose hearing has become worse suddenly or over time.

It is common to feel frustrated and isolated when your hearing deteriorates. A hearing therapist can help you to find ways to manage your hearing loss, and so reduce these problems.

Using counselling skills, patience and empathy a Hearing Therapist can offer advice, give information, discuss communication tactics and liase with other professionals in order to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation service within audiology.
