The ability to use your voice in an effective manner is essential for both business and personal relationships. A voice disorder can make it difficult for people to feel confident about themselves and their ideas, however voice therapy can help you learn how to control your voice and change the way the world hears you. Voice disorders include Vocal Cord Dysfunction, which is when the vocal cords abnormally close when they should be open, which can negatively impact your voice. Chronic coughing and chronic hoarseness are also both tough on your vocal chords, making it difficult to carry on conversations or conduct presentations. Speech therapy can assist you in managing your voice by learning the right way to breathe and also how to relax your throat in order to produce the voice you want people to hear.
