The Voicecraft® Clinic provides voice therapy and training to those with voice difficulty or requiring assitance to modify or maximise their voice.
Eligibility for assistance does not depend on a doctor's referral but in most cases, review of your larynx by an Ear, Nose & Throat Specialist is recommended to ensure an objective approach and to eliminate the possibility of laryngeal pathology.
Initially a case history is taken to explore and analyse the voice difficulty and the the way the voice is being produced.
Techniques for overcoming voice difficulty and for voice training ensue and careful records are kept including audio recording before, during and after restoration of optimal voicing.
Weekly or bi-weekly one hourly sessions are arranged. It is important to bear in mind the cost, energy and time commitment.
Voicecraft®methods are used throughout to promote full recovery of the voice, realisation of its potential for versatility, longevity, power and stamina and to ensure there is no recurrence of voice difficulty.
Confidentiality is an important issue. All matters related to the voice difficulty whether of a personal or professional nature remain within the confines of the clinic.
Every effort is made to restore the voice to healthy form and optimal function in the shortest possible time. Consideration is given to the concerns, vocal demands and time constraints of each individual to ensure a customised and personal approach to voice difficulty. Onward referral may be recommended.
