How many times have you heard people talk about finding their voice? It’s often a metaphor that means finding their true self or essence. I think that’s because the voice is the most personal and very first means by which we communicate. From our first cries as a baby, to our sophisticated arguments as an adult, it’s how we make our needs known.
I have developed a way of working with people who want to express themselves more with their voices. I have combined my vocal coaching and teaching background with my therapeutic training to help singers with inhibition, fear, loss of confidence and performance anxiety. Under the right circumstances, I may accompany a client to a recording session, helping with confidence, nerves and self-sabotaging tendencies in the moment. I use visualization, humor and therapeutic intervention to address the underlying fears and feelings.
