I am an holistic voice coach, singer and healer, based in South Wales.
I found my singing voice at the tender age of 9, where I began songwriting and entertaining anyone who asked me to sing . However I didn’t discover my natural speaking voice until later on after I went through a stage as a teenager of being shy and lacking in confidence in social situations .
I ventured into community drama and this brought me out of myself again. I use skills I learned from mentors at that time, as well as university and professional development courses over the past 25 years . My drama, theatre and music training took me into teaching in secondary schools, FE colleges, primary schools, nurseries, residential homes, special educational needs, music centres, teacher training within schools and with teacher unions .
I believe that my singing voice has helped me to develop a stronger speaking voice and I firmly believe that there is far more potential to our vocal delivery than we generally use .
I am fascinated by the connection between the singing and the speaking voice and how our feelings about ourselves can affect how we use our voice in public .
I have developed tools to use breath and arm movements to aid shy and anxious voices and I am creating and re creating these tools with every new client .
I expanded my learning in 2002 to a range of complementary therapy level 3 diplomas in Reflexology , Aromatherapy , Holistic massage Reiki , Indian head massage, baby massage and nutritional advice . I use these skills to help with voice clients in so many ways such as easing muscle tension in the jaw and advising essentials oils and foods to use and to avoid to keep the voice healthy .
I’m no Brian Blessed , I am still relatively quietly spoken so I doubt whether shy individuals would be easily intimidated whilst learning with me. However , I know how to project my voice when needed and vary tone to get a message across .
Any more questions about my experience and qualifications , I’m happy to answer over email or via our free consultation online .
Happy talking !
