Ear Wax Removal Clinic in Folkestone

Hearbase provides a professional ear wax removal clinic every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at our Folkestone branch. Our highly trained ear care technicians use microsuction and water irrigation, as well as manual tools, to remove the build-up of ear wax quickly and safely. The appointment is usually 30 minutes and our technician can also check your general ear health and refer you to our expert audiologists for onward support, including a comprehensive hearing test.


We take your hearing loss seriously and it needs to be professionally diagnosed and treated with the best solutions available.


We provide a wide range of hearing aids, from the most straightforward to the most sophisticated.

Hearing Specialists

Nikki Davis

Senior Audiologist

Nikki joined Hearbase in October 2012. She is responsible for the private hearing aid service at our Folkestone branch. As this is one of our busiest locations, managing the centre at Folkestone is a full-time job and Nikki does not routinely work outside of the Folkestone branch.

She was originally employed in an admin role but was supported by the company to undertake a two-year audiology degree at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge. After graduating she became part of the clinical team and continues to develop her professional skills. Nikki has gained a reputation across the company for her caring and compassionate approach and high levels of patient satisfaction.

Nikki says that she has enjoyed the transfer in roles within Hearbase. She found the degree challenging but rewarding and has developed her skills to the level that she is  now working exclusively with private patients within the company.

Over the past 25 years Nikki has developed roles in retail and customer services management, recruitment and business development. These transferable skills have given Nikki the confidence to develop her career as a clinical audiologist.

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.”

Ashleigh was excellent, she explained the procedure in detail and certainly put my mind at ease. She was very professional and did not rush the procedure and explained every step that she carried out as we went along. An excellent service and I have arranged to see Ashleigh on a regular basis to help to keep my hearing tip top. Excellent and thank you Ashleigh.
