Hi Brent,

Dizziness & balance

Our practice offer a wide range of diagnostic assessments, working closely with other healthcare professionals, to determine the cause of your dizziness and balance disorder. Our test battery includes videonystagmography (VNG) testing, video head impulse testing (vHIT), as well Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) testing. Once we have established the presence and site of the vestibular disorder we work with you to provide a customised exercise-based rehabilitation programme to help reduce symptoms and improve your everyday functioning.

Hearing & hearing loss

A hearing loss is more than the inability to hear loudly enough. People with a hearing loss experience problems in hearing and localising a sound source. They may also have a discrimination loss – that is, difficulty discriminating words from each other, even if they are fairly loud. They can hear the words, but fail to understand the spoken message.

Diagnostic hearing testing

Equilibrium performs a range of diagnostic hearing assessments, analysing the outer, middle and inner ear, in order to determine the type and degree of hearing loss. Assessments typically include testing such as pure tone audiometry, speech audiometry, impedance audiometry, Eustachian tube function testing. Electrophysiological tests including Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR), diagnostic oto-acoustic emissions (DPOAE), and Electrocochleography (ECochG) testing are also offered at our practice.

Hearing instruments

With advances in technology, approximately 95% of people with a sensorineural hearing loss can be helped with hearing aids. We are proudly independent of any hearing aid manufacturer or commercial company, and love to work closely with our patients to discuss the various hearing aid solutions that will suit their lifestyle as well as budget.

Children & hearing

Hearing loss affects three in every 100 children under the age of 18. Both hearing and speech are essential tools for children to be able to learn, play and develop social skills. Children with undetected and untreated hearing losses may miss a lot of the speech and language around them, resulting in delayed speech or language development, social problems and academic difficulties.

Tinnitus & hyperacusis

Do you have constant or occasional sense of ringing, buzzing, whistling, humming, clicking, or hissing in your ears? Or perhaps an increased or over-sensitivity to sound? These conditions are called tinnitus and hyperacusis – and you don’t have to live with them.

Medico-legal audiology

Equilibrium’s audiologists can perform hearing and vestibular assessments for medico-legal purposes, such as when a client is involved in a motor vehicle accident. Audiograms can also show when an individual is suffering from hearing loss as a result of excessive exposure to workplace noise, known as noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL).

  1. Testimonials


“I’ve been feeling so dizzy for almost half my life. I’m 28 years of age and this has been happening since I was 14 yrs. I developed a very low self-esteem because I felt I was going to feel dizzy or fall in front of people at the mall or any public [place]. I preferred being alone or being assisted by someone just in case… I did tests at various doctors and found nothing. But thanks to Lara Benigson I’ve never felt so alive and sure about myself. Thanks to her wonderful smile and understanding, I’ve been a much better person. Wow, wow, wow! I feel like jumping and telling the world ‘thank you very much Lara Benigson’ may God bless you!”


“I recently needed an upgrade and, as usual, Lara was terrific… Lara said I needed two hearing aids and I said one would be fine. She was correct. No surprises there, then! I love that you can road-test various devices so you know what you’re letting yourself in for. I tried two and could have tested as many as I liked. I would not go anywhere else for my hearing problems. I get expert advice and what each device can do and, importantly, what they cost. And how to get bang for my money… Thanks Lara and your team.”


“Having been to Lara I found her to be extremely efficient and pleasant. I can highly recommend her services.”
