Voice Assessments & Therapy

Our Voice Therapy program is designed to help adults experiencing voice disorders, whether due to overuse, medical conditions, or other underlying causes. Our experienced speech therapists conduct thorough evaluations to understand the unique characteristics of each individual’s voice disorder. This assessment informs a personalised therapy plan, which may include exercises to improve vocal cord strength and coordination, breath control techniques, and strategies to modify pitch, loudness, and quality of voice.

We also focus on vocal hygiene education, helping clients understand and implement lifestyle changes that can promote vocal health. Our therapists work closely with clients who use their voice professionally, like teachers, singers, or public speakers, to develop techniques for voice preservation and optimal use. Our goal is to restore and enhance vocal function, allowing clients to communicate effectively and confidently in their personal and professional lives.
