“Over many years of debilitating hearing loss, I received a cochlear ear implant in December 2022. After wonderful help from Your Way | Kia Roha Hearing Therapy, I have been able to return to three organisations helping them with committee work. They have provided a wonderful service. It has also made such a difference to the relationship with my wife.”

Roland Ellis ONZM. TD.

“Glen has suffered progressive and significant hearing loss over the years. He made contact with a hearing therapist at Your Way I Kia Roha. Things have progressed so well since then, that I am inspired to write a letter of thanks for their support in enabling Glen, in a very short period of time, to obtain a pair of hearing aids which have made such a difference to his life and general well-being.”

Noel Baigent

“His first session with Your Way | Kia Roha was a definite turning point for him. He got great benefit from these sessions and his confidence improved greatly. Our conversations between each other, have also become more enjoyable, with us both understanding how to compensate for his hearing.
