Freeing your authentic
sound - discovering your real voice

To give voice to who you really are, is to fulfil a basic
human need to communicate, to be heard and to be seen. In that moment life
is full, in that moment there is perfect presence, freedom and joy.
Why work on the voice?
People work on the voice for a
myriad of reasons; for personal development and empowerment, for educational
reasons, for technical improvement in the quality of the voice, to overcome personal assertion and confidence issues, and to release blocked emotions, to
connect with something true and authentic and to express the ‘essence’ of what

The Ethos of Realvoice
At the core of this work is the
idea of spaciousness; non-judgemental attention, out of which grows a trust and
a freedom to explore and take risks. From the place of non-judgement participants get to

the place of acceptance you can become familiar with its contours, its colours
and tones and finally its subtleties, singing yourself out beyond limiting
beliefs and barriers as to what you can express through the voice.
