Do you feel that your voice doesn’t truly represent who you are?
Do you want to find your voice?
As a voice teacher people talk to me about their voices. So many people say that their voice doesn’t represent who they are. They’ve spent so long being small, or being a character that they don’t know what their authentic voice would be like. This isn’t even considering how much we change with time. Sometimes our voice doesn’t keep up with the changes in how we are.
I was in the car with two very powerful women and one was saying that she feels her voice doesn’t represent who she is. I said, without filtering, that I agree. Her voice should be strong and clear and probably quite deep. I said, that her voice should be like mine.
Ironically I developed my speaking voice so that I could be heard in large school halls with no amplification. I realised I would be more authoritative and less likely to hurt my voice if I dropped my pitch down lower. That was a good realisation from my 24 year old self.
So I set up a “Find YOUR Voice” workshop
This workshop wrote itself. I was unsure if it was 3 workshops or one and I was unsure as to the correct number of people to have in the group but besides that the workshop wrote itself. It is a combination of body work, breath work and individual coaching. Participants have to speak in front of the group but the group is a very safe place to be.
A few Sundays ago a group of 3 met at my house and we trialled the workshop.
I’ll let the participants share their experiences as their experience is more relevant than mine.
Get in touch and write “voice workshop” in the subject line to be added to the waiting list for the next group.
I’ve created a page on my website with more info but I’ll share the reviews below too as I love them.
“I know that I have always carried issues around my voice, of confidence, expressing myself fully and being truly heard, but I had no idea there was so much treasure hidden beneath the surface.
Rebecca’s workshop was a beautifully held safe space for each participant to explore their voice and expression and the true power and passion beneath the surface.
I came away having experienced myself, through the freeing of my ‘true’ voice, in a way that I never have before.
Empowering, sensitive, intuitive and highly skilled, Rebecca is a master at unlocking your deeper desires and the hidden truths that lie beneath your vocal limitations or insecurities. She gently shows you what you might be hiding behind or overcompensating for, in order to truly free the more authentic and in my case powerful voice beyond those learnt behaviours.
A beautiful, sensitive and deeply enlightening experience that will stay with me and I’m pretty sure inform my experience of myself forever. The honesty, integrity, skill and sensitivity of Rebecca’s delivery made it a joyful as well as profound place of self-discovery. I was expecting to be challenged but I felt simply supported, held and deeply seen in a space of playful yet significant exploration.
Fun and incredibly healing, I would recommend the workshop to anyone interested in exploring their voice or themselves in a therapeutic and empowering way.
I feel that I have more confidence in the exploration of my voice in every way, but especially as my unique, unashamed gift of self-expression since the workshop.

“But in terms of what the workshop did it definitely boosted my confidence, the end was great when we did exercises running on the spot and even sharing how I felt in a confidential space was really nice, the breath work helped me to be more grounded. I loved the kazoo and the straw work it really helps with my stomach relaxing and my chest releasing the tightness.” Ray Heart
