Voice and Communication Therapy for Trans Women

colouring-design1

Voice and communication therapy for trans women is a journey of transformation, moving from a familiar place, to a less familiar or well-known place. Therapy is about exploring and experimenting with a different voice, whilst maintaining your authenticity.  This is vital in order to feel confident and comfortable with your voice and communication.

Voice and communication therapy for trans women involves feminisation of the voice.  This includes raising habitual pitch, making the voice lighter, with a more forward focused resonance and altering intonation patterns.  The Speech and Language Therapist ensures you do this whilst maintaining optimal vocal health. You will learn some simple exercises to practise regularly between sessions.  Therapy will help you find ways to try out using the voice in different contexts.   It provides you with vocal choices and a supporting guide through this part of your journey.
