The Naked Voice
"The Naked Voice is your original voice, fully-embodied, naturally-expressed, and free of self-consciousness. It is your authentic sound, as unique as your DNA or fingerprint."
- Chloe Goodchild
I had the great fortune to experience my first Naked Voice workshop with founder of The Naked Voice, Chloe Goodchild, in 2005. I dropped myself in at the deep end and booked for a 7-day voice retreat in Turkey. What an incredible,
transformative experience! Although I had already been working with voice, sound and healing modalities nothing prepared me for the intensity of this profound experience. I accessed sounds and a voice inside me that I had never heard before. It also touched something very deep within me and I felt a powerful healing occur.
One of the many things I took from the retreat was that I wanted to concentrate more on my singing and music and the following year I released my first CD, Planting Peace, a collection of songs and chants inspired by my spiritual awakening. Later in 2006 I was unexpectedly given the opportunity to start working as an Administrator for Chloe and The Naked Voice, a job I am still doing today. This blessing has given me many opportunities to study with Chloe and I have attended countless workshops, as well 5 and 7 day retreats to train as a Facilitator. Recent family responsibilities put some of my Naked Voice work on hold as I concentrated on my new role as a Father and also the nourishing simplicity of my chanting sessions. However, the time now feels right to bring forward the skills I learned from Chloe and pass on the sound practices that I was lucky enough to receive and that have benefited me so much. In 2014 I graduated as a Naked Voice Facilitator.
1 - 1 & Group Sessions
I currently offer 1-1 and group sessions for those who wish to explore their voice in a joyful, supported way. In this space you can express yourself freely, uncovering vocal blocks, releasing old stories and stuck emotions. The aim of these sessions is to increase your confidence with your voice and your ability to express yourself free of self-consciousness and judgement. You will learn vocal practices to take away and support you. If you wish to book a session e-mail me at [email protected] I also offer 1-1 harmoniun lessons.
