Qualifications – FSHAA RHAD
Adams desire to work in Audiology developed as early as age 13 whilst assisting his father with Ear health camps in Sri Lanka and Kenya.
He studied at the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital, Gray’s Inn Road and in 1980, qualified as the youngest audiologist in the UK.
By 1984 he was actively involved in the running of an Audiology clinic in Madrid with ‘satellites’ in Northern and Southern Spain, whilst also establishing himself in the UK practice. Adam became Managing Director of Cubex in 1995 when the London based operation moved to 25 New Cavendish Street.
In 2001, Adam set up a sustainable Audiology programme in Western Nepal and is responsible for facilitating, training and supervision of 7 Community Ear workers and over 700 volunteers.
Adam is a firm believer that as professionals, it is essential to understand the human dynamics associated with audiological disorders. He works closely with The IDA Institute to help with the process of generating and providing innovative, practical and actionable knowledge on the human dynamics associated with hearing loss. This knowledge is filtered through to the rest of the team at Cubex. He is great facilitator and his passion and many years of experience in the field makes him a perfect mentor.
He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine, British Society of Hearing Aid Audiologists and a member of the American Academy of Audiology.

She was instrumental in the rebrand of Cubex.
Jerusha is also responsible for facilitating, training and supervising a team of Community Ear Assistants (CEA’s) and over 1000 volunteers in Western Nepal delivering Primary ear care and Audiological support to a catchment of nearly 1 million people in the Terai and the Himalayan foothills.

Qualifications – BA Hons, 200RYT Vinyasa Yoga
Henrietta studied English and Classical Literature at Leeds University, and upon returning to London with her degree, worked for Cancer Research UK before starting at Christie’s, to follow her passion for the arts. Over the next seven years with Christie’s, Henrietta worked in a variety of capacities focussing on client relationship management and service.
It was in 2014 that Henrietta started to consider revolutionising her chosen career path. Having trained and competed in rowing at an elite international level as a teenager, and practised yoga since around the age of 13, movement and sport have always been a central part of Henrietta’s life. So, in early 2015 Henrietta liberated herself from the constraints of an office environment and travelled to India to complete her yoga training in vinyasa yoga, realising a lifetime ambition. Henrietta is now also a certified instructor of Broga®, yoga for pregnancy and Yoga Bananas® children’s yoga.
Through her teaching, Henrietta hopes to bring the joy of physical activity and movement to as wide a range of people as possible, whilst also introducing the other, often overlooked aspects of yoga, such as breathing, meditation and mindfulness.
When not teaching, Henrietta quickly and enthusiastically dives into her other great passion – cooking and food, and can be found in her tiny south London kitchen cooking vast quantities of nourishing and wholesome foods to feed whoever she can find willing to eat.
Qualifications – PhD, Audiology
With a mother who is a doctor and a father who is an electronic engineer, Saima was drawn to a career that was an elegant synthesis of both professions. She undertook her BSc (Hons.) in Audiology at the UCL Ear Institute where she was awarded student prizes for both academic and clinical excellence. Through working with patients, she grew to better understand the real-life, everyday implications of hearing loss.
Before joining Cubex, Saima worked in the NHS and provided sessional lecturing to UCL students. Whilst doing so, she began her PhD in Auditory Perception at Aston University (Birmingham) in 2012 and achieved her doctorate in 2016. Her research looks at unpicking some of the ways in which the brain makes sense of the complex mass of sounds arriving at our ears.
“What drew me to Cubex was the commitment to high quality, individually-tailored care. Coupled with Cubex’s involvement in innovative, scientifically driven treatments, I saw a unique approach to hearing care in the UK which I wanted to be part of. Ultimately, it comes down to a sincere commitment to helping people communicate and engage with the world around them, including those who love them. That is what resonates with me the most. In my opinion, each and every person who steps through the door is unique, and deserves the best possible care.”
Saima has maintained commitments within the voluntary healthcare sector for over 7 years. She was involved in developing Audiology services in the Northern Province Sri Lanka (in 2011 and 2013) to provide basic training to staff and medical students at Jaffna Teaching Hospital.
With a background in South Indian Classical Music and Dance, Saima loves music. She is currently listening to Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox and George The Poet.
I love to use swimming and bouldering to help me de-stress. Now that my PhD is over, I hope to be able to resume reading fiction. I enjoy short stories, particularly by Thomas Mann and Anton Chekhov.”
Madison brings to us a breath of fresh air and a contagious enthusiasm. She is an incredibly patient centred Audiologist always ensuring that her scientific skills are applied in the most human and individualised manner possible. Her interest to help people re-connect with and maximise their ability to participate in their auditory and communication world has become a daily passion and so we cannot be happier to have her on our team.
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a suburban town just east of Toronto, Canada.
What did you study?
I studied at the University of Waterloo (Canada) where I received my BSc (Hons) in Health Studies.
The program was multi-disciplinary affording me the opportunity to study the different aspects influencing human health. It was this approach that helped me to realize that I wanted to pursue a career in health care that was multi-faceted, and with the intersection of biology, physics, psychology and technology I knew that audiology was the perfect match.
To pursue my career in audiology I moved to London in 2015 where I undertook my MSc in Audiological Science at UCL. The first year of my MSc involved an in-depth examination of audiological theories and principles. During this time I was also exposed to clinical practice, largely within the NHS.
I was so excited to join the Cubex team to complete my training because I wanted to continue to learn in an environment that believes delivery of care is enhanced with a multi-disciplinary approach. At Cubex I am continuously learning how to provide individualized care by considering aspects that go beyond the presenting problem. This exposure has provided me with the tools to be a better clinician.
Cubex offers a unique and memorable experience for patients, and working here is incredibly fulfilling. The Cubex approach to hearing health care strongly aligns with clinical values.
Your pet peeve?
My biggest pet peeve is when people automatically assume and ask “are you American?” OR when people are chronically late.
What do you get up to outside of Cubex?
When I am not busy learning at Cubex or studying at UCL I am always trying to explore the city of London and try everything that this amazing city has to offer. I enjoy listening to many genres of music, including country, which seems to be underrated here in the UK.
