What I can do for you...

Contemporary commercial artists, classical singers, actors, hobbyist singers, professional singers and professional voice users - if you are experiencing technical issues then, you are in the right place! I am here for you!

If you want to work through vocal issues and choose to trust me with your voice, you know you are in safe hands. I will do all that I can to support you on a journey to recovery.

I am a member of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) in an assistant capacity. I am one of ONLY six non-medical voice practitioners who has gained enough experience in UK voice clinics to meet the British Association of Performing Arts Medicine's stringent competencies. This means that I can offer vocal health advice and undertake vocal rehabilitation coaching when supervised by a clinical person within a voice clinic setting.

 

Being affiliated with both RCSLT and BAPAM means that I am obliged to adhere to the codes of practice they have developed and when working outside the clinical setting, I can guide you with technical needs and help you with your vocal health needs.

"If you choose to trust me with your voice, you know you are in safe hands."

Whilst I am not of the medical profession, I am thrilled to be able to offer such a specialist service.

Please note, in order to work with me, I may ask you to attend a Voice clinic first if I feel that your issue is medical.

I believe in an approach that gives you positive, constructive ways to maintain good voice habilitation or heal.

 

I can design sessions according to your individual needs, whether that is strategies to strengthen your voice, vocal extreme training, technical work or voice for character work.

My brain can't stop, I'm always trying to improve, that's one of the reasons that I ended up helping create the first voice clinic for performers in the North East, one of only seven in the UK. I usually find a way to talk about moving your career forward too. I just can't help it.

 

If you wish to make an appointment where you put my brain to work to make your career work for you, then I'd love to help you.

ALL SESSIONS ARE CURRENTLY ONLINE
