My Story

Dr Gerard William

Although I was born with hearing impairment, my hearing loss was not picked up by my mother until I was 3 years old… when I didn’t respond to her mealtime invitations from another room!

Off we went to our local audiologists and doctors!

Our health professionals made the decision to monitor my hearing annually. Times were different and they didn’t provide us with a lot of information about what we should do to manage my hearing. Since I seemed to be doing fine at school over the coming years, I wasn’t required to wear hearing aids as a child.

It wouldn’t be until I was 15 years old before I would get my first pair of hearing aids. A classmate of mine was annoyed by me asking him to repeat our teachers’ instructions, and he asked me to see his mother (an audiologist) who could let me try “tiny and invisible” hearing aids. My life was about to be changed forever.

I vividly remember the experience of being fitted with hearing aids, and having the world opened up to me – along with all the various joys and challenges of newfound hearing!

For example, I hadn’t realised that people could genuinely understand song lyrics without first reading them, and that cars and clothes made soft noises that others could hear. There was a lot to learn along the way – and answers were not easily found or explained!

In later reflections, my family certainly wished that we had understood more – about how much I had missed out when younger, and if I would’ve been fitted with hearing aids at a younger age if we have better information earlier. 

It is through this experience of audiology that I have been inspired to find a better way forward for hearing impaired people and their family members. 

Fast forward several years  of training and international practice and I have continued to dedicate my life to helping other people with hearing impairment hear better through an experience of care that is warm, personalised, honest and comprehensive.

Through HEAR WITH ME, I hope to be able to provide you with an audiology experience I wish my family had. 

I look forward to welcoming you to Hear With Me.

Professional Experience

Gerard has spent his lifetime around audiology, having grown up with a genetic hearing loss which was diagnosed at age 3 and fitted with hearing aids at age 15.

He trained in New Zealand where he completed his Master of Audiology (with Distinction). He then worked in diverse areas of audiology including hearing, tinnitus and vestibular diagnostic and rehabilitation across NSW, ACT and VIC.

He has lectured and taught clinically to Masters of Clinical Audiology students at the University of Melbourne where he completed his PhD in Audiology on scholarship from the HEARing CRC. His PhD research into person-centred hearing care explored how audiology clinics can better focus on the needs of hearing impaired individuals and their families to achieve better results.

He enjoys being involved in teaching and has presented at various national and international conferences.

Gerard was co-awarded the Herbert J. Oyer student research prize at the Academy of Rehabilitative Audiologists Institute (USA) in 2018 and has been published in the Hearing Journal. He has served on Australia and New Zealand audiology professional bodies, and is registered to practice as an audiologist in Australia, New Zealand and the UK.

Gerard founded Hear With Me Audiology Care in April 2020 to provide a fresh, family- and person-centred approach to hearing care ordered towards improving ear and hearing outcomes. He has since worked closely with local ENTs, GPs, health professionals and community groups to ensure that each patient is looked after at all stages of the audiological journey.
