I have a unique combination of skills to help clients develop their true voice whether singing or speaking.
Not only do I bring technical, functional & paralinguistic knowledge of the voice as a certified vocal instructor, but I also bring a deeper understanding of the mind and how it drives our vocal habits as a certified Jungian life coach. This expertise is coupled with my own professional performing experience.
Whether you come to me to develop your speaking or singing voice, the coaching principles remain the same - we must uncover what is unconsciously holding you back from the voice you desire.
If we don't examine this aspect of your mind, we're really just working on the surface when technically building the voice. Your vocal results will be limited or you'll just revert back to your old way of doing things.
As Carl Jung famously said, "until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will see it as fate."
Our vocal habits are deeply ingrained and driven unconsciously as a way to survive in the world. We learn what is acceptable and what is not both explicitly and implicitly, and what will help us fit in. We absorb these messages into how we use our voice.
For this reason you have created the voice you unconsciously "want". In some way it's protecting you - whether it's weak, quiet, nasal, raspy, tired, unexpressive or inarticulate. So if you're not getting the results you want, we must look at why you would create that.
The good news is our voice is highly adaptable to change. By combining this new awareness of our mind with vocal technique, a lasting transformation of your voice can occur.
