Professional profile

Availablity - Shawfair: Alternative Thursdays or on request

I hold an MSc in Audiology and have excellent experience of working with adults and children in both the public and private sectors. I currently combine working privately at Spire Edinburgh Hospitals along with working as a Specialist Audiologist at NHS Lothian.

My main interests are paediatric and adult assessment, diagnosis and treatment of hearing impairment using the latest, highest quality digital hearing aids when necessary. I take a patient-centred, personalised approach to hearing aid fitting based on the individual needs and lifestyle of each patient.

I also have an interest in managing tinnitus and hyperacusis in both adults and children.

At Spire Edinburgh Hospitals, I will see children aged 3 to 16 years old.
