Peter Holmes Audiologist

Audiology services

Ear wax microsuction:

I offer ear wax removal using microsuction, which is regarded as the ‘gold standard’ method of safe and hygienic removal of problematic, bothersome ear wax and, importantly, offers the experienced clinician a highly magnified view of all important landmarks and structures, as the wax is carefully removed from the canal. Other methods lack this clinical refinement and attention to detail and are not without the risks of serious infections and injury. Clients can also rest assured that any onward referrals can be backed by full audiometric testing and high-definition photographs, as required.

Hearing tests:

Hearing tests in a relaxed, non-commercial environment, allowing you time to discuss the best way forward with your hearing and balance concerns, and offering advice on all aspects of current NHS and state-of-the-art hearing aid provision. Air and bone conduction pure-tone audiometry and tympanometry as standard, comprehensive ENT consultant report or GP referral, if required.


An initial appointment is highly recommended for all those seeking relief from tinnitus. It includes a full audiological assessment and clinical history, which are essential components and help to guide subsequent approaches to treatment. There are some established approaches to tinnitus therapy which have consistently proven successful for many individuals. These are being continuously refined, in conjunction with ongoing research into treatments and causes.

Custom products:

Custom products include in-ear monitors, musicians’ and industrial ear defenders, surfers’ and outdoor swimmers’ ear plugs, all of which require a top-quality impression of the ear. I can advise on all aspects of custom devices and supply you with the quality ear impressions needed.


In addition to the local services provided by Headland Hearing, I also work as an Audiologist for one of the UK’s largest providers of NHS and private hearing care. I examine ears, test hearing and advise on tinnitus and balance issues on a daily basis. In a past life, I was a successful sound engineer, having worked in locations around the world and extensively throughout Europe. My studies are ongoing, with particular interest in the auditory pathway and earlier diagnoses of childhood mental health issues.
