Finally I feel I have enough thoughts and ideas of my own to actually write something that some people might find interesting, mainly on the subject of what I call Singing Therapy, but also incorporating a whole host of related subjects as I come across them in my life and work.
Another big part of my work is Sound Therapy. As I digressed from my career as an opera singer, I trained to be a Sound Therapist. More about this in later blogs, but in short, I would say my biggest personal realisation was to see the effects of sound and using one’s own voice on the body. It’s amazing and it affects everyone differently depending on where they are in their own personal development.
So having tried to maintain my inner calm and sound intent on where I was going and what I wanted to achieve in my life, I now find myself literally manifesting a “sound centre”. A place where people can come and learn how to use all different types of sound to help them through their lives; singing, toning, chanting, vocal exercises, laughing, yawning, sighing, sound treatments, drums, rattles, singing bowls, chimes, flutes and so much more! For stress, relaxation, pain relief, personal development, moving on, fun, improved sleep, the list seems endless, but most importantly, there is something for everyone in this world of sound.
It’s starting small and growing, piano to crescendo!
