Professional Background 

My teaching spans a decade, coaching, tutoring and coaching vocally for the past 10 years. Recently in the last 5 years I have stepped into the space of sound therapy whilst also practising Reiki for 5 years, and have had the level of Master Reiki Practitioner for 3 years. In this space I've been able to explore the healing power of the voice and the empowerment of unlocking the emotional, mental and sometimes also spiritual chains that restrict the expression of the voice and the communication and self expression of people at their core.

Estill Voice Technique

Level 1 & 2 Estill Vocal Training 2012 

A unique Vocal Training System which enables us to identify and control the individual structures of the voice in isolation. Using simple everyday sounds common to everyone, these structures are identified, isolated and then used to develop conscious control of the voice.

Master Reiki Practitioner

Master Usui Reiki practitioner, Sound + Frequency facilitator, Sekhmet Reiki student, Crystal Reiki practitioner

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing, most often understood as a type of alternative medicine. We use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing, where we're tapping into a universal energy, transferred through our palms to you in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Reiki is used to resolve emotional distress by allowing healing energy to flow freely throughout the body, which results in relaxation and reduced pain and tension throughout the body. It can also help reduce stress and anxiety, which can decrease pain perception as well.

Specialist Focus

My focus is a holistic approach to the voice and the vocal structure and the surrounding apparatus, working with a protocol that develops safe vocal practice and training that supports the natural use of the voice to support not just it's recovery or strengthening - but it's sustainability. Recently my practice has evolved into the combination of exploring and unravelling beliefs & stories connected to the use of the voice and reaffirming the power of reclaiming, understanding and using ones voice.
