∴ The therapeutical approach to the voice ∴
The voice as an instrument to perceive the body.
The body as a hall to set the voice to music.
What is therapeutical voice training & expression?
Essentially, voice therapy focusses on two main areas:
◊ therapeutical voice training - finding the courage to sing and speak, finding your own unique voice, finding back to your voice after illness
◊ therapeutical voice expression - experiencing the voice vibrating in your body, expressing & releasing emotions, thoughts and trauma using your voice
⇒ both areas are interconnected as well!
Therapeutical voice training
〈 the free voice 〉
The voice is the mirror to your soul. Happiness, love as well as anger and grief are portrayed in your voice - sometimes consciously, sometimes very subtly. The melody of your voice, the resonance and liveliness are partly innate, but mainly learned: Upbringing, imitation, (music) school or traumatic experiences (physically as well as mentally) may put a lock around your voice that most often does not resonate with the true you.
Therapeutical voice training is for singers, speakers and enthusiastic people who want to experience their unique voice. Functionality is as important as emotionality. The expression should not be hindered by poor functionality. (Trained) functionality should never be in the voice of the authentic expression.
How to free the voice? That is something that is as unique as your voice. Sometime the voice has to find strength, sometimes it has to find courage to be heard at all, sometimes the voice has to let go, sometimes the voice needs a massage. Therapeutical voice training always is body work as well.
Therapeutical voice expression
〈 emotion through sound 〉
The wonderful gift of the voice is that you can not only hear it, but also feel it. Your body has cavities that have the ability to resonate. You can use your voice to connect with your body in ways that help to transform stagnating emotions and traumatic experiences. You do not need any musical skills for that. Therapeutical voice expression is a form of body work that uses the voice as an instrument to feel and as a tool to release and transform.
Before a therapeutical voice expression session you will set an intention and I will guide you through the session.
