What happens at an appointment?

Assessment

Your first appointment will last an hour.

At this appointment I will take a detailed case history from you. This will include your medical history and lifestyle. I will take some baselines of your voice and will teach you how your voice works and will give you tailored advice on lifestyle changes that will help your voice. None of this is physically invasive.

You may be asked to consult your GP about health issues that could be affecting your voice.

 

Therapy

Therapy appointments will usually last half an hour and tend to include following up on previous advice and exercises to practice at home.

Therapy sessions can involve quite a lot of problem solving to work out how to make the necessary lifestyle changes needed to improve your voice.

Sometimes therapy can be quite challenging for people as they think and learn about themselves in ways they have not done before. I will support you through this process.
