Welcome to Kim Hawkins Vestibular. Our Willoughby clinic focuses on helping clients with dizziness, vertigo, and balance issues get back to doing what they love

The Sydney-based clinic utilises objective clinical vestibular testing (including infrared video goggles) to accurately assess, diagnose and treat inner ear balance dysfunction and other causes of dizziness and imbalance.

Each client is thoroughly assessed and then treated on a one-to-one basis with evidence-based treatment techniques to help reduce dizziness, improve balance and reduce the risk of falls.

Techniques involve hands-on therapies, including particle repositioning manoeuvres (such as the Epley manoeuvre) and home-based exercise programmes to promote self-management.

Our vestibular rehabilitation programmes are individually tailored for each client to assist with the management of:

Many Australians will experience dizziness or balance issues in their lifetime. A thorough assessment with a vestibular physiotherapist is the first step to better symptom management and a research-backed treatment plan
no medical referral is required for private patients
over 20 years experience

Kim is an experienced vestibular physiotherapist with a passion for helping people with dizziness, vertigo and balance issues to move, feel and function better. Even after 20 years of clinical work in the public and private health sectors, she’s still genuinely excited by the ‘Aha!’ moment clients get when they understand where their symptoms are coming from, which means they can then get on with treating and managing the source of the issue. A client-centred approach and evidence-based interventions are the core of Kim’s therapy style.

Kim has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) and a Master of Philosophy (Science) from the University of Sydney. She’s an APA Titled Research Physiotherapist and is a regular university guest lecturer. Kim has published several peer-reviewed journal papers and presented at multiple national and international conferences.
