What is voice therapy?
Voice therapy is a specialised area within speech and language therapy.
The focus is on finding out why you may have a problem with your voice and working with you to improve it. It is about learning strategies to support your voice.
Why do I have a voice problem?
Voice problems arise from a variety of issues. People generally tend to get away with some “bad habits” for years, but then a further strain (maybe a cold) affects the system and your voice goes hoarse, or disappears on you.
Voice therapy has to look at all aspects of voice production, from your anatomy, lifestyle and general health to your emotional state.
Sometimes a voice problem can be an indicator of a growth in the larynx (voice box). This possibility always needs to be checked out, so I ask that all of my clients are assessed by an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) consultant.
If you would like an appointment with me, but have not yet seen an ENT consultant I can assess your voice, give advice and then ask your GP to refer you to ENT for their opinion.
The ENT consultant will also be able to give useful information on the movement of your vocal cords.
