About Us

Danielle Barker (FdSc, RHAD, MSHAA) spent numerous years working in a Hearing Care Assistant role before being handpicked, by a leading high street brand, to be enrolled onto a hearing aid audiology degree at Aston University in Birmingham. After graduating in 2018 (with Distinction) she went on to add a qualification in Microsuction ear wax removal, to complete her full range of skills.

Originating from Northallerton, North Yorkshire, Danielle began her career as an Audiologist, working for some of the industry’s biggest high street audiology brands, before making the decision to relocate South to Essex/Hertfordshire. In October 2019, after accumulating a wealth of knowledge in the large corporate world, Danielle decided that a move to the smaller independent audiology sector would allow her to create the perfect blend of service and care for her clients. Now with over 10 years of experience, she continues to provide her clients with a personalised service which is tailored to their specific needs, through her own independent business.

Hertford Hearing is 100% independent which allows them to offer clients with the very latest information and advice, not only about ear hygiene, but also hearing technology, tinnitus management and hearing protection, ensuring that clients hearing health is the very best it can be. This is facilitated using a range of specialist testing and fitting procedures which are not commonly available from the major high street brands.
