What is Speech Therapy and who can benefit from it?
Lydia offers a wide range of treatment options, from voice care advice, to a programme of voice therapy for people struggling with their speaking or singing voice. Lydia can help with a wide range of vocal complaints, as well as giving expert advice on other ENT and airway difficulties. Lydia’s knowledge of the singer and singing voice, as well as the speaking voice, means she is well equipped to deal with elite level vocalists.
Sessions with Lydia will help to bridge the gap between your ENT team and your singing teacher or vocal coach. Receiving a diagnosis of vocal pathology can be scary and confusing – Lydia will help you to understand what your diagnosis means, what might have caused it, and how to recover. Lydia’s passion and willingness to collaborate means a multidisciplinary approach may be used to help effectively treat you with Manual Therapy treatments and Vocal Rehabilitation at the Pro Voice Care, London studio in Soho.
Lydia can provide advice and treatment for:
Hoarseness or loss of voice (a recent assessment by ENT is essential)
- Vocal fatigue
- Vocal strain or discomfort
- Pre and post-operative voice rehabilitation
- Globus (sensation of something stuck, or a lump in the throat)
- Persistent cough
- Persistent throat clearing
- Symptoms of acid reflux
- Nasal and sinus issues such as congestion, post-nasal drip or difficulty breathing through the nose
What is the structure of the treatment?
Your first session with Lydia will help to explore concerns. Voice problems can be complex, so it is important to take time to determine the underlying cause of your issues. Lydia will help you to understand your symptoms, and the treatment options most appropriate for you.
Your treatment sessions will consist of a tailored programme of voice care advice, strategies and exercises. Lydia also works holistically with mind, breath and body. Lydia believes that individuals should be given the tools to manage their symptoms, so not only should your sessions help you to recover from your issues, they should also help to prevent them reoccurring in future.
