Hearing Specialists

Ashleigh Bullen

Ear care technician

Ashleigh was born and raised in Canterbury where she grew up with her dad and step-mum who are nurses.

“Other family members work in the NHS and care sector, so quite naturally, I found myself working in care and stayed for around eight years,” said Ashleigh. “I worked in care homes, out it in the community and in an agency.

“I then obtained a bachelor’s degree in English and moved to a school to see if teaching was for me. But I found I missed the care sector too much! From all my experience, including the school, there has been a common factor I’ve seen that has isolated people and got them down a lot – that was hearing!

“Hearing is such an essential factor in everyday life and seeing individuals struggle with this really got me interested in helping with hearing loss. I was amazed to find out how many people were affected by ear wax alone. So, here I am, hoping to help some people hear even just a little bit better by relieving them of their wax. I am so excited to embark on this journey and hope to go into further training to become an audiologist.”

Marta Lopes

Clinical Manager

Marta joined Hearbase in November 2013 and is now the clinical manager, overseeing all of our clinicians and ensuring quality and best practice is adhered to. Marta also specialises in paediatric audiology and also works at our branches in Folkestone and Canterbury.

Marta completed her audiology degree in her home country of Portugal. After graduating she worked in two hearing care centres and in private and public hospitals where she tested adults and children for hearing loss and screened newborn babies.

In 2013 Marta published a study for an international symposium on the effects combined exposure to noise and toxic substances have on our ears and hearing. She says: “Despite publishing an article about industrial audiology and my interest in hearing aid technology, my dream has always been to work with children and be a paediatric audiologist.”

Marta wanted to work in health care because she likes to improve people’s wellbeing and make a difference to their lives.

“Working for Hearbase makes this possible,” she says. “Living in a different country with a different culture is a challenge but I am doing what I want to do. I have support from the Hearbase team which makes everything easier.”

Clara Mesquita


I discovered my passion for audiology in 2017, starting as a hearing care assistant at Specsavers. I joined Hearbase in 2018, graduating as a hearing aid audiologist at Anglia Ruskin University in 2020. I am currently still studying towards enlarging my scope of practice and knowledge base.

Why audiology? I love music, listening to stories and enjoy conversations with family and friends. It’s deeply rewarding to bring this possibility to others and to have the opportunity to actively contribute to improving a patient’s quality of life.

Rachel Harrison

Ear care technician

Rachel has worked in the care sector for 12 years, gaining qualifications that enabled her to help people promote dignity in care for those who live with dementia.

“Looking for new skills, I studied the anatomy and physiology of the ear, and it was amazing how poor ear health can affect people’s social interacting and hearing loss,” said Rachel.

“If I can play a part in someone’s life to help promote better hearing and give back a little of people’s social abilities then there can be no more job satisfaction than that.”

“Having attended clinics and seen the difference an ear care technician can make, I cannot wait to see what the future holds within the audiology world.”

Rachel lives in Herne Bay with her husband, three children and two dogs. She said: “I love cooking Indian food and photography and I enjoy travelling to India twice a year. The culture, food and people amaze me.”

A very well organised Medical Centre with helpful receptionists, ease of parking, and efficient medical practitioner staff on-site.
