Fear of Public Speaking Can Be Overcome
Who needs help
I’ve been a voice coach for 8 years and although I teach singing, I also teach public speaking. I am usually asked to help improve presentations for meetings or conferences. Most of my clients are in finance and IT but you may be surprised to know I’ve also coached teachers, university/college professors, fellow singers and musicians, entrepreneurs, engineers, actors, pastors, real estate agents, doctors, politicians and even a rabbi. You may be thinking that some of these people would be very natural at what they do and in some cases that is very true BUT, however, my job is to make them look and sound better then they did before in front of their audience or constituents or congregation no matter what the topic may be.
It’s not as difficult as you may think
Some of my clients who have been speakers for years get a sudden onset of stage fright that throw them for a loop. I help many of them overcome this. How? Throughout the lessons I change their perception of that fear and remind them why they chose to do what they do in the first place. It takes some practice but it works. I also suffered from debilitating stage fright in the past which I talked about at TEDx Milton – I overcame my obstacles and I use what I learned to help others overcome theirs.
We live in a world where our devices have created a secure space for all of us to express ourselves without having to look anyone in the eye so when you actually have to communicate face to face with other people and be vulnerable, it’s a whole other ballgame. I fix this. I get you out of your own way. I’m a fixer and I love my job.

I love teaching. Seeing a students face light up when they hit that high note really makes my day.

Hi peeps…I spent alot of time revamping, updating, and adding a ton of new content to my website. Still lots to do but I think its ready for the big reveal. please take a looksie….I would really appreciate it if you could let me know what you think. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
I find one of the toughest sessions to teach is when I am pushing a students range because most people are very resistant to hearing their own voice crack or hit the wrong note. So today during one of these tough sessions with a teenage student, I ask “Who is your favourite singer right now?” …with the intention of using this info to motivate her. Without skipping a beat she says “You!” ….Not expecting that answer I blushed and paused for a sec and smiled because she completely threw me off my game.
lol….and that folks is how you become my new favourite student haha
oh and yes she rocked those high notes after that!
Imagine being able to just sing…without worrying about what others think. That’s what I do and that’s what I love helping people do. Singing heals the soul.
