The voices of our customers

Voice Movement Therapy might sound intimidating, but I can assure you it is a wonderful process of finding yourself and your voice. Singing and using your voice looks easy, but if you haven’t done it from a young age, it is difficult to find your voice, explore your voice, find confidence and start to know your voice. This course definitely gives you the space and acceptance to understand yourself through your voice. It gives you a different perspective on your problems or struggles, the things that make you feel stuck. It gives you a voice to be able to process your experiences, your journey.
After this experience, I was definitely more connected with my voice, not scared of being loud, of being myself. I would recommend Voice Movement Therapy for everybody. This will not just help you, but enrich your self-understanding.
–  Elané Sassenberg

How have your sessions with Lerina helped you to express yourself?

Lerina has such a gentle and positive attitude that I’ve always felt safe exploring my voice and taking chances to extend my comfort when ready.  That safety and shame-free space is instrumental for me.

How do you feel the sessions have affected your confidence about your voice?

Lerina has such a gentle and positive attitude that I’ve always felt safe exploring my voice and taking chances to extend my comfort when ready. I came to voice movement therapy with an understanding of where my shame and lack of confidence had come from, both from past trauma and the after-effects of childhood speech therapy.  So much of my life, I’ve been expected and rewarded for having the ‘right’ voice and words.  Having a space where we intentionally play with various expressive sounds has given me the confidence to not have to do it ‘right’ all the time.

Safety and shame-free space are instrumental for me.

Have these sessions affected other areas of your life outside of your voice? For instance, your emotions, body, and wellbeing?

Absolutely! I find myself being gentler with myself and my body, able to tune into my state with less judgement and shame.  It’s catalyzed a desire to prioritize my own creativity in all areas of my life.  

How do you think Lerina's vocal coaching would help others?

I’m a somatic counsellor (trained in Somatic Experiencing) and strongly encourage my friends and clients to be involved in some sort of expressive and/or movement play.  For some, finding the support to overcome internal and past barriers to accessing that is a necessary step in finding the confidence to play.  Whether new to vocal expression and singing exploration or not, Lerina’s playfulness and capacity is a safe container to learn and discover.  Highly recommend.  

Singing Benefits & Well-Being

The body, its gestures, and movement qualities as well as voice clarity, pitch, resonance, and volume are integral to how we experience ourselves. When we open up to include the body and voice as truthful expressions of the whole self, we also find new ways to include the metaphorical voice (your inner voice) and the embodied expressive voice in a holistic way.
Benefits of singing for health

Well-being is a lived experience; it is something we can actively cultivate for ourselves. Deepening our self-awareness, emotional sensitivity and the active integration of the body-mind are at the very centre of our well-being.

The maxim “Know Thyself” urges us to actively explore our motives and emotions. Voice Movement Therapy provides an opportunity to creatively engage with those potent images, bodily impulses, and personal narratives. It allows the wisdom of the body and psyche to surface and to be formed by vocal sound, lyrics, and expressive movements.

Why singing is important: Voice Movement Therapy
To thrive, you need to face the parts of yourself that are unfamiliar, unexpressed or have been silenced. Equally important is developing an ability to listen to yourself. Shed light on every aspect of your experience including the shadows.
Voice Movement Therapy gives you a safe space to explore the underworld as well as a clear pathway back. Emotional understanding and integration are required to reach what Marita Günther calls the “dared expression” and a Self, free of judgment. By facing our Self, deep care and self-compassion can be nurtured, which leads to sustainable well-being.
Singing health benefits

There are so many health benefits of singing. Singing releases endorphins while also allowing you to tap into the emotional and spiritual sides of yourself. 

There is increasing global awareness of the importance of embodiment in well-being and in healing. A renewed focus on a deeper and more active awareness and connection to the body. An acknowledgement of the wisdom available to us through this essential connection. 

Why is singing important? It provides a profound way to connect with your body. Through envoicement, vocal sound, and resonance, we can bring about awareness, express physical and emotional feelings, and initiate change.

Nature and singing for health
The power of nature to heal and revitalise us is probably one of our greatest untapped resources. Participating in Voice Movement Therapy sessions and groups in nature helps people to relax, connect with their bodies, and find their centres. Working with the embodied voice in nature allows us to join with her and converse about the things that are beyond words.
Imagine the embrace of the African mountains cradling you as your group sings a lullaby. An immensely powerful experience of energy exchange.
We can open the way to honour the deep-souled intelligence of the universe and reveal how to:
Respond with gratitude and humility
Recognise that we are part of the mysterious world and not its directors
Through this embodied and envoiced connection, we can become intimate co-creators, accepting our place in the unfolding of new realities.
Voice Movement Therapy encourages a reconnection with all that is wild and primal within. It also aids in the search for inner harmony and “Oneness”.
We encourage holistic healers and yoga instructors to attend our well-being workshop to broaden their ideals around healing and breath.
Does singing help your lungs?

Yes, singing helps your lungs. Singing allows you to work on your breathing. Voice Box uses Voice Movement Therapy to help you to unpack your breath, which increases your lung capacity while also stimulating the muscles surrounding your ribcage.

Vocalists and the “block”

Singers and performers sometimes encounter a block. Blocks can be brought on by the fear of sounding bad. The Voice Movement Therapy approach to voicework is non-judgmental; there are no ‘bad’ sounds and no ‘bad’ voices. From this standpoint, VMT works to nurture a flexible and unrestricted voice through awareness-based exercises. You’re encouraged to explore the boundless possibilities of the sounds within your voice without the hindrance of needing to be perfect. Our VMT techniques enhance your vocal fitness and flexibility as well as the body as a whole as your performance instrument. Voice Movement Therapy changes voices. We use song and singing lessons to achieve vocal liberation and the release of the “block”.

Is singing good for your heart?

Yes, singing helps your heart physically and emotionally. Just one more reason why singing is good for you. Singing encourages slower and deeper respiration, which improves your heart rate variability.

Singing helps us emotionally by increasing self-awareness and allowing us to express physical and emotional feelings.
