Meet Lucy

Specialist Vocal & Singing Coach

Voice Speech and Language Therapist

BAHons PGDip MSc MCertRCSLT HCPC

I’m Lucy! Welcome to Dexter Vocals - my private practice offering specialist Voice & Singing Coaching. This practice runs alongside my other role within the NHS as a Speech and Language Therapist, in which I specialise in clinical voice disorders and performers voice rehabilitation. 

 

I work with elite & professional voice users who are finding some difficulty within their singing or speaking voice. This includes a range of professions including; professional singers and actors, amateur performers, teachers, public speakers, lawyers, anyone who relies on their voice on a regular basis. 

I hold space for my clients to focus on, and explore their vocal system to inform healthy, positive and efficient voice use.

I sometimes work with private and NHS ENT departments to aid clients post ENT/speech therapy referrals, to begin (post endoscopy) or continue their rehabilitation and vocal journeys. 

 

In your sessions with me we will take a holistic approach to coaching your voice, considering your whole person, the body, the mind, and your environments.

Your voice is precious and unique to you, so your sessions are completely centred around your particular vocal presentation, any endoscopy results, as well as your personal needs and goals.

Building awareness of your whole vocal system with mindfulness, and respect for your body will all be essential. I am always working toward empowering you with the knowledge to take charge of your own voice and feel confident doing so. 

I work with clients of all ages, voice types and genres of performance.
