I offer voice coaching that meets the unique needs of each person

Individual 1 hour voice coaching sessions are tailored to meet your requirements and cover the keys to exploring your vocal potential:

  • Breathing, presence and sensitivity.

  • Vocal expression, resonance and placement.

  • Skills for presenters and public speakers

I am skilled at coaching via Skype or FaceTime.  I currently offer face to face coaching in New Zealand but am available to travel worldwide.

Areas that we might develop as we work together include:

Presence:  When we feel present, our speech, facial expressions, posture and movements align.  It's been described as 'the state of being attuned to and able to comfortably express your true thoughts, feelings, values, and potential.'  Presence was the subject of my RCSD Master’s thesis, and is an area of speciality for me. I invite you to explore how grounding, posture and breath contribute to vocal and physical presence.

Presentation Skills: There are many ways to build the confidence needed to express and present your ideas.  Connecting effectively with your audience calls for an understanding of presence, including posture and vocality.

Breathing: Breath is the foundation of voice work, and time spent investing in the natural movement of breath is always an investment.

Resonance and placement: Increasing resonance gives both strength and  ‘carrying power’ or projection to your voice. Awareness of the placement of resonance gives warmth and clarity to your voice.

Vocal expression: The way you use pitch, pace and pause contributes to vocal expression, and makes it easier for you to communicate and for your listener to engage with what you say.
