  • Elocution/Accent Reduction/Accent Neutralization

    Elocution is speaking in a polished and professional way. Accent Reduction is when you reduce your current accent (Colored, African, Afrikaans, European, etc.) so that you can sound more neutralEnglish like what you hear in South Africa. The course makes you aware of the sound system (or phonology) of a language or dialect: which include identifying problems in the person's current speechfrom the desired accent (such as pronunciation, speech patterns, and speech habits), changing the way one uses the mouth, teeth, and tongue to form vowel and consonant sounds, modifying one'sintonation and stress patterns, and changing one's rhythm. Using this method, individuals trying to help their communication; will learn how to alter their speech to more closely resemble the accentof neutral English commonly used in SA and abroad, thus enhancing the clarity of their communication within the workplace.

  • Counselling

    Counselling is a talk therapy where you gain a greater understanding of yourself. Counselling aims to help the individual find their own way forward and allow them to be their authentic self. Oftenwe can get caught up in what's expected of us or how society dictates we should be rather than ensuring our own personal needs are met. People come to counselling for a number of reasons such as - Tooffload their thoughts and issues, to solve a specific issue, to improve their current circumstances, to cope better with life, to explore their inner selves, to cope with anxious thoughts andfeelings, to gain greater self awareness, to improve their relationships with others, to move forward if they are feeling stuck, to find out who they are etc. Talking openly in a safe environment canhelp you begin to piece together the parts of you that are most important and it can allow you to become more self aware. For example, there may be times when we display unwanted behaviours as a wayof protecting ourselves. By being aware of our defence mechanisms and what triggers them, we can begin to live in a happier and more balanced way by not allowing these behaviours to develop. Addedawareness can often lead to us wanting to make positive changes and sometimes, the very smallest of change can have great effects. For example, being aware of the tone you use when talking to othersand understanding the likely reaction you receive can allow you to alter this and observe the difference this makes. By talking, it allows you to process more clearly and deeply. By having aprofessional with you, it can allow you to look at things you may be missing, take on board a different view point and allow you to delve deeper beneath the surface. What kinds of problems can youtalk to a counsellor about? • Relationship difficulties - Family and friends, colleagues, commitment, jealousy, abuse • Abuse - Verbal, Emotional • Lack of confidence - Worried about failing, neverbeing good enough, feeling judged • Depression - Feeling isolated, lonely, empty, tearful, unloved, and suicidal. • Repeated destructive behaviour - abusive relationships, anxiety, • Stress - Out ofcontrol, panic attacks, feelings of inadequacy, Exam and Study stress • Anger Management • Bereavement/Grief - Loss, anger, loneliness, sadness & depression; Crises counselling

  • Accent Classes: improving your pronunciation skills

    What should be the main goal of any pronunciation class or course? What are the kinds of exercises that will help you improve your pronunciation? First, the main goal of any Elocution/pronunciationcourse should be to focus on accent reduction, not accent elimination, which is technically impossible. Students should work on reducing areas of their pronunciation and enunciation that make itdifficult for native speakers to understand them. Second, with this goal in mind, students need to be able to identify which areas of pronunciation and enunciation give them the most inaudibility;such as, vowel and consonant sounds, word and sentence stress, word reductions, linking, and intonation. Finally, you need to practice these structured exercises to extemporaneous speech in differentsituations, because practice makes perfect. Improving your pronunciation will take a lot of patience and commitment, but the end product - your unique, well developed voice - is worth it!

  • How to speak like a woman!

    So, how does speech therapy work for someone who's transitioning? What does it involve? You come once a week, sometimes twice a week if you're really eager to speed things up, and you do differentvocal exercises. Pitch is one of the most important markers. Men on average speak at 110-120 [Hertz], gender neutral is 145-165, and women are 210-220. In most cases the goal is to try to get togender neutral, which basically means that if you called somebody on the phone, and they speak in what's known as the gender neutral pitch, you probably wouldn't be able to tell if they were a man ora woman. So that's the first piece, but along with that, they have to learn other things, like posture and speech intonation. Speech intonation is how much your voice goes up and down in a sentence.Men tend to speak in a very monotone, even tone. Women speak in many, many different pitches; as they speak they go up and down, they go high, they go low. So that's really important-a person who'stransitioning needs to learn how to use that range in their voice. They also practice moving the resonance of their voice up higher. Men speak in their chests. If you're a man and you say a word, ifyou put your hand on your chest you'll feel a vibration. If you're a woman, you speak in your face. So that's another thing they try to work on-they move that resonance from deep in their bodieshigher up. Another thing is women speak more precisely. They enunciate their words. Men don't do that as well, so men actually have to learn to articulate their words more precisely to sound like abelievable woman. Volume will also be something to look at as a man will just speak with greater volume-so he'll speak louder-and a woman will tend to speak higher, tend to raise her pitch higher.The problem with just going with pitch, even though it's a very important marker, is that if a man speaks like a man in every aspect except for pitch, he's going to sound like a man talking in afalsetto. So all of these other aspects are about trying to come up with a voice that is real and like the way people actually speak, rather than just trying to talk as high as you can. The idea isthat you deliberately practice a new voice until it becomes habit? EG: The key is that you have to practice it in your lives. You get homework in each session about what to practice in the realworld, and go out and practice it. Many of you start your speech therapy before they have fully transitioned in their lives, so they might be a person who is fully committed to transitioning buthasn't told their workplace. In that case, learning can be slower because you have to be able to practice your voice all day long. If you're going back and forth, it's a slower process. So youpractice your new voice in conversation, and over time, it just becomes your learned voice. It does seem to sink in to the point where you find it difficult to access the voice you used to have.
