“Hearing loss is a very real kind of loss,” explains Adam Shulberg, the clinic’s co-founder and senior audiologist. “There is grief, there are relationships involved and all sorts of experienced nuances of communication that can be exhausting and overwhelming for the patient – as well as their communication partners. Our approach looks at the connection between hearing loss and cognitive function. People with hearing impairment sometimes retreat from social engagements and can feel quite isolated. This happens because the brain has to work far harder to encode sound, so all cognitive processes are under pressure. It can be mentally exhausting.”

The Wellbeing By Cubex launch is taking place inside the clinic at 25 New Cavendish Street. Short meditation sessions will be hosted in the clinic’s soundscape room on the hour, every hour, from 9am onwards and can be booked online, free of charge. The clinic will also be showcasing new creations by conceptual visual artist and poet, Mark Lawson Bell.
