I’m Helen Leach

Providing Gentle Ear Wax Removal to the Isle of Purbeck

Ensuring good quality care and safety as fully trained to the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommendations

Fully insured and DBS checked for your peace of mind

Serious ear wax impaction?

I provide extended sessions as standard so if you haven’t had your ear wax removed for a long time or you are suffering discomfort or hearing loss caused by wax build up in your ears we will have plenty of time to get it cleared

Consultation only Sessions

Sometimes we don’t find any wax or maybe you just want to check whether your ears are building up with wax. In these cases you can book a consultation only session

Hear better instantly

Ear wax blocks the ear canals and reduces our ability to hear clearly

Take away ear ache

Impacted ear wax puts pressure within the ear canal causing discomfort

Return to the world

When our hearing is affected, we end up feeling shut off from the world

Ear Hygiene Advice

Learn how to look after your ears so they stay clear for longer

New Clinic Opened in Swanage

I am pleased to share that Clear Ears Purbeck has opened it’s locally owned independent clinic on Commercial Road, Swanage. Not only will this be more convenient for you to pop in while doing your shopping but we can guarentee a high level of hygiene for you and your ears.

Free Drop-In Ear Wax Assessments Morning

With the opening of the Swanage clinic there will be a drop in morning for free ear wax assessments. Find out if you need ear wax removal before paying out.


Every Wednesday, 10am – 12 noon!

What is The Process Like?

There are many reasons why you may wish to book a session to have your ears assessed and cleared. I use the latest technology and techniques to assess and clear the ear wax and provide a Personalised Ear Hygiene Programme so that we can keep future ear wax build up under control. Adults only, if you wish to have ear wax removed for under 19 year olds, please speak to your GP.

You will find Clear Ears Purbeck Clinic based in Commercial Road, Swanage

*Before you arrive for your appointment*

To help soften the ear wax before removal, it helps if you use olive oil base ear drops in the ears for 3 days before your appointment. I recommend Earol for this purpose as it is quick and less messy for you.

If you wear hearing aids, just use the ear drops every evening before bed as you won’t want to get the oil in or on this delicate equipment. You will need to do this for a week before our session.

1. Initial Ear Hygiene Assessment

If it is your first visit, we will go through your ear history and expectatins to make sure you get a hygiene plan specifically tailored to your needs.

Every session also begins with a thorough ear hygiene assessment utilising the latest technology so you can see what’s going on in your ear too!

2. Irrigation

Irrigation with gentle warm water can be a very effective method to remove ear wax and is the method most people know and use. This is far more gentle and safer than the syringing methods of old.

3. Microsuction

For when there may be a perforated ear drum or grommet, microsuction is the most gentle and safest method.

4. Manual Removal

Under steady hands and specialist sterlile tools, manual removal of hardened and stubborn wax will soon get those ears clear again.

5. Personalised Ear Hygiene Programme

At the end of each session, we will create a tailored ear hygiene programme that will cover what you can do at home as well as to how often you will need to return for Maintenance Ear Clearing Sessions with myself.

Very caring and thorough service. Helen went out of her way to explain everything that she was doing and making sure that I was comfortable. Very kindly prepared a comprehensive report for me to take to my GP appointment regarding a separate ear problem, which clearly showed the health of my ear canal and ear drum. Brilliant!
