Phoebe Lye

Audiometrist


Phoebe completed work experience with Sharon King Hearing Centres in 2016, after this Phoebe quickly realised that hearing was the industry that she would love to work in. For the next 3 years Phoebe worked for us after school on a Friday afternoon until she finished year 12 in 2018. Phoebe started studying the Diploma of Audiometry at the start of 2019. Phoebe is very passionate with helping others with hearing loss and continuing her education in the hearing industry.

“After qualifying as an audiometrist I quickly secured a job with a large hearing chain. While I loved the concept, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I couldn’t give my patients the time and attention they deserved. So, I set up my own independent hearing clinic.”

  • I have had my hearing aids now for 11 months - they are small and people do not realise I have them unless they are told.  I cant believe what a difference they have made to my life. I cant thank Sharon King and her collegaues enough for the difference they have made to my life and well being. They are supportive, informative and understanding.
    Mr Longstaff
    Tamworth, NSW
  • At Sharon King Hearing I can honestly say that the support by all the staff has made the process so easy and the friendliness has made the transition from hearing small amounts to hearing everything even easier. When you are lucky enough to find a practitioner like Sharon and her staff you feel at ease and  totally supported.
    Mrs Longstaff

  • Sharon has always been responsive and professional and nothing is ever too much trouble. I have great confidence dealing with Sharon and I have recommended her to a number of people looking for hearing assistance. I have no hesitation in continuing to do so. Sharon is truly outstanding.
    Paula Furlong
    Tamworth, NSW
  • Highly recommend them. Great friendly, professional service. I can now participate in group conversations that previously were just a mumbled noise. Making social events, and talking to customers etc. so much easier. I never realized how bad my hearing was, until I got the aids.
