Welcome to

The Art of Hearing

Hearing is an art. It is beautiful, it is complex, it connects you to your surroundings and it has a considerable impact on your emotions. Your perception of hearing is completely unique.  You have your own aspirations for using your hearing. This creates personal connections with your surroundings and with those around you.


The Art of Hearing involves not only you, it includes everyone you interact with and the perception of all sounds in your listening environments.  Essentially, the Art of Hearing is a core aspect of your daily life, forming the basic function of your communication and interaction. If your ability to communicate or interact is limited in any way as a result of hearing difficulty, your quality of life will be adversely affected.

At The Art of Hearing our goal is to accompany you, your family, friends and any other communication partners on your hearing journey. We will not use one standard approach to treat everyone’s hearing difficulty, but will consider your unique well being, your hobbies, your social and work environments to treat your hearing difficulty. We commit to understanding your perspectives and will consider your needs, abilities and preferences in order to design the best, personalised ear care solution for you.

The IDA Institute state that person-centered hearing care is designed around the person with hearing loss, respects individual preferences and values, involves family, and reinforces shared decision making and goal setting.
