Eleanor has worked in the NHS for over 12 years with patients with hearing and balance disorders. She specialises in; wax removal through micro-suction, balance rehabilitation and tinnitus management. She strives to go above and beyond for her patients. She now works in private practice supporting ENT doctors in Bristol Spire.
Eleanor became interested in wax removal when patients started to have difficulty accessing their GP services, making it difficult to accurately assess patients’ hearing. She was trained in wax removal in 2016 and trained as a trainer in 2020. She has recently trained in more complex methods of wax removal. She focuses on a gentle approach to wax removal and has worked with patients who are anxious from past experiences.
Eleanor specialises in working with patients who experience chronic dizziness. This involves working closely with patients to tailor individual exercise plans to help reset their balance system. She uses a holistic approach to reduce the anxiety that patients experience with dizziness and improve their quality of life. She is able to help patients with conditions such as; labyrinthitis, vestibular neuronitis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular hypofunction and chronic dizziness (persistent postural-perceptual dizziness).
Eleanor enjoys learning about new evidence based practices and applying those to help her patients and their families. She has also been involved with lecturing, intellectual disability support at schools, dementia care and charity work overseas to help those access hearing services who cannot afford to. During her 12 years in the NHS, she has led training for students Audiology up to Master’s level. She also works closely with De-Monfort University in training and moderating exams.
