Dr. Hashir Aazh was very kind and professional. Highly recommended
Encouraging first appointment which gave me a great deal of hope for the future.
It was a great relief to finally see someone with a comprehensive understanding of misophonia.
Great service and effective treatments. Good value for your money.
I met with Dr. Hashir Aazh once and we continued the rest of the sessions via Skype which was just as excellent and still enabled me to take away the valuable tools I needed. Dr Aazh is very sincere and I have learnt so much about myself through these life changing sessions.
Excellent service. Dr. Aazh is very professional and knowledgeable.
outstanding initial session! many thanks to Dr. Aazh
Outstanding initial session. Dr.Aazh is clearly a skilled clinician with the ability to provide CBT type therapy from an audiologist’s perspective given his experience and thorough understanding of Tinnitus.
Highly recommend his professional services via Skype.
I have had 10 sessions of CBT with Hashir. I learned much about myself and the way I react to tinnitus. Hashir is very personable, listens well and has considerable knowledge and experience.
Very informative and engaging
Hashir has really helped me. I didn’t think that I’d be able to get through the sessions as I am very busy with work but needed help. He has been very flexible and supportive. I would highly recommend him.
I received 6 sessions of CBT for Hyperacusis from Hashir and have made considerable improvements from the techniques he has taught me. I feel my condition is vastly more manageable and I very much expect to improve further by continuing to practise and implement them. Hashir is very knowledgable on these topics, explains things very clearly and is excellent at focusing my mind to the path of recovery. Highly recommended!
Personable, professional and supremely competent.
It is a common concern in individuals with tinnitus that if their hearing worsens for any reason it may lead to an increase in the loudness of their tinnitus to a level that they would not be able to cope with. In collaboration with Professor Richard Salvi who is the director of University at Buffalo’s Centre for Hearing and Deafness in United States, Dr. Hashir Aazh explored the relationship between hearing loss and tinnitus loudness in over 400 patients. This study has been published in the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology. See the video for details of the study and its results.

Ear and Hearing, November 2020
The aim was to assess the validity and reliability of a new questionnaire for hyperacusis, the Inventory of Hyperacusis Symptoms (IHS). Results showed that this hyperacusis questionnaire has good internal consistency and reasonably high validity, as indicated by the relationship of IHS scores to other measures of hyperacusis. Dr Aazh and his colleagues propose a new criteria for diagnosing hyperacusis.
I was a bit dubious beforehand about treating what I saw as a physical problem with therapy. The treatment I had has made a great difference to the effect that hyperacusis has on me and I am now able to do things and go to places that I could not before.
