Naude Hearing Solutions - About Us

HPCSA: GAK0002402

JP-NaudeJean-Pierre (JP) Naude holds a B.Economics Honours and Masters degrees from the University of Stellenbosch, having specialised in human resources management and labour relations.  After completing a two year internship he registered with the HPCSA as an industrial psychologist and worked in this field for multinational companies for 14 years.  

He decided on a career change, wanting to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives, as well as in the community he lives and works in.  He completed the Hearing Aid Acousticians’ course at the University of Pretoria, passing with distinction.  He opened his practice in April 2011.

He believes that the treatment of hearing loss is a personal and long-term relationship with the hearing healthcare provider that can only succeed with the highest level of customer service.   To this end, his scope of practice and area of interest is the adult hearing system (clients older than 12 years).  Therefore, his focus is on the correct identification and treatment of hearing loss through a full diagnostic test battery and not just a basic screening hearing test. He has established good working relationships with the ENT fraternity in PE and regularly refers clients, if required.  His practice rooms are as follows:
