What makes me different? I’m not just a ‘public speaking coach’ telling you where and how to stand and speak, I’m a vocal confidence specialist – helping you use your voice more confidently and effectively through the whole of your life, personal, professional, home and social.
Whether you’re looking to express yourself more fully with your friends and family, to raise your hand and share thoughts, ideas, feelings, or opinions at work, to stand in front of an audience and deliver a presentation or speech, if you are looking to have (rather than avoid) those challenging conversations – or simply find the ability to set boundaries, or say “No.” more often so that you can start to live your life rather than always doing everything to please everyone else, it helps to understand the following:
When you express your thoughts, ideas, feelings, opinions, or beliefs, you are making them ‘public’. This is why different situations where you’re called upon to speak or express yourself can feel intimidating. These fears or challenges are a part of your subconscious make-up and life-patterns. The intimidation can be especially true if you are a bit of a ‘people-pleaser’, someone who hates the idea of saying something that others might question or disagree with, or might put others out.
Work with me and we will help you allay your personal challenges, figure out what is important to you, re-connect you to the whole of who you are, and discover the power of your whole voice so that you can use your voice to:

When we work together, we approach your vocal confidence from an holistic standpoint. Holistic doesn’t mean ‘hippy-dippy’* – it is actually a very practical approach which means looking at all the elements of your life that impact you positively and negatively, the tools and support you have and what is missing. We look at how these elements affect your voice, and where your voice effects your life.
(*If you are “a bit ‘woo’” I have tools for that too – you might want to look at the sound healing pages.)
When you liberate your voice, you liberate your life – by freeing yourself to have the conversations you’ve been avoiding, ask for the help you need, to say “No.” sometimes, and, yes, to deliver presentations or public speeches.
If you are connected to your challenges and fears before you express yourself there will be problems that might be, or become, patterns of avoidance or expression that you get trapped in. I work with you to discover where your challenges come from and to liberate you from them.
At the extreme, these challenges keep people from speaking up for themselves or resist speaking positively about themselves, they stop people from asking for help, or accepting or going for a promotion at work, they stop people from being or becoming the whole of who they could be. Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, said in an interview:
“Focus on developing your voice. Figuring out what’s important to you and being willing to use your voice for that purpose is incredibly valuable.”
I couldn’t agree more.
If you are ready to develop and free your true, whole, confident voice I have several options available so that you can join at the level that is right for you. Whether you want to work with me one-to-one, attend a group workshop, or start by doing some exercises on your own at home – the choice is yours.
