Voice

What is the voice clinic?

We provide an individualised program of voice and communication training for adults and children with a range of voice difficulties. Our services are supported by world leading researchers, skilled voice clinicians and final year speech pathology students.

How is voice treated?

We provide both preventative and rehabilitative services for people with voice disorders. We also provide voice training for individuals whose voice does not match their gender identity.

Your  voice disorder will determine whether your treatment is voice training with a Speech Pathologist and/or referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, a psychologist, a psychiatrist or a combination.

Treatment in the voice clinic will involve a voice exercise program, education about how you use your voice, and advice on possible medical interventions such as surgery and medication.

Services provided by the voice clinic

  • Voice assessment using specialised computer software for people who are concerned about their voice
  • Voice therapy for the treatment of voice disorders and post surgical voice rehabilitation
  • Voice modification for individuals diagnosed with Gender Dysphoria
  • Voice modification for individuals whose voice does not match their gender identity
  • Voice care presentations, screenings and a diagnostic service for professional voice users.

Most voice sessions are scheduled weekly although this can vary according to individual needs.
