Transgender Voice Training
Find your congruent voice
Find your authentic voice and feel the security of gender-self congruence. You may be looking to develop your authentic voice through adjusting your pitch, intonation, articulation, body language, and gesture patterns. Or, you may be looking for gender congruent vocabulary and non-verbal communication. Whether you are MTF or FTM, before, during, or after transition, we can help. Through the process, we will help you discover authentic communication for your authentic Self in a gender-spectrum friendly and professional environment.
We understand that as a cisgender team, we will never fully understand the experience of a person who is transgender or gender non-conforming. So, our role is to learn as much as possible about your lived experience in order to understand your goals and your voice. Through radical acceptance, respect, curiosity, and unconditional positive regard, we will work as a team to explore and understand your voice needs and desires. Through this conscientious approach, we invite you to tell us the outcome you want and if you don't know, then we can learn and explore together. Everyone is different in their goals for their voice and we will support you until you find a voice that you love and that represents who you are.
At Well Said: Toronto Speech Therapy, an adult specialty clinic, we offer voice and communication support to individuals who are transgender or on the gender specturum.
We have the experience and dedication to help you achieve measurable results and a congruent voice to use in your real life. Using an evidenced-based approach, we will work with you, using the latest research to achieve your voice goals. Our services are covered by most workplace and education insurance plans.
