Michael guy

Audiologist

 

I am originally from Farnham and now live in Aldershot with my family.


I trained at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford and was taken on as a supernumerary student which meant I spent my first year in placements with Audiology and then Cardiology.  I chose Audiology as I enjoyed the mix of diagnostic testing and counselling that this discipline brings.


After 10 years in the NHS I moved into private practice working at an Independent Hearing and Balance Clinic in Harley Street.  Here I gained extensive experience in Vestibular (balance) testing as well as taking my Hearing Aid Council Examination that qualified me to fit private hearing aids.


In 2006 I moved with my wife and children back to her homeland, Brazil, for four years.  Here I had a break from Audiology and qualified as a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language.  My wife and I ran our own Language School in the beautiful Sao Paulo countryside.  


In 2010 I had the opportunity to return to the UK and work with one of the leading Audiology Equipment and Hearing Aid manufacturers,  Sivantos (formerly Siemens).  Here I could combine my Teaching and Audiology experience to help other Audiologists develop their skills and best practice with the latest technologies.


While with Sivantos  I worked on developing future technologies for the UK market and was also a member of the Sivantos Audiology Masters, which was a group of leading Sivantos Audiologists from around the world.
