Voice problems are known to decrease the effectiveness of communication, lower quality of life and cost money in terms of time off and reduced productivity. Most voice problems can be fixed or improved once accurately diagnosed and treated by a multidisciplinary team including a Speech Pathologist, and an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist (ENT).
Here at Cate Madill Voice and Speech we are passionate about helping people who are having difficulty with their voice. The sound of your voice may have changed, it may be hoarse, husky or croaky, you might find it hard to speak loudly or above background noise, your voice may feel tired at the end of the day or your voice might be impacting your ability to perform your job. All our clinicians have undergone comprehensive training in the assessment and management of voice problems and have completed skills-based training across a wide range of treatments including, Voicecraft, Sob Voice Therapy, Yell Well, Lee Silverman Voice Technique (LSVT), Vocal Function Exercises, LMRVT, Resonant Voice therapy and Semi-Occluded Vocal Tract Exercises (SOVTE).
If you are concerned that your voice is not meeting your needs, consult your GP for referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat surgeon who specialises in voice difficulties and/or Speech Pathologist, who is trained in examining and evaluating vocal function.
