Voice & Communication Studio
How Would it Feel to Trust Your Voice and Speak Freely?
The sound of your voice is a vital component of your identity. When people listen to you speak they can immediately discern many things about you such as age, gender, and culture of origin. They also hear your fear, joy, confidence, nervousness, authority, believability, and so much more. It makes sense, then, that allowing your voice to be heard in its fullest, most authentic form can be tricky sometimes, or even downright scary.
Vocal Confidence Coaching pulls together a variety of exercises and modalities to help you trust and appreciate the sound of your voice, while at the same time weaving in a deep sense of confidence in who you are and what you need to say, and combining all of that with the skills and tools you need to communicate clearly in any situation.
✨Sounds like magic, right?✨
How Does it Work?
This pragmatic and holistic style of coaching will take you all the way to the deepest foundations of your voice. You will feel more comfortable and confident in any situation in which you need to express yourself. As I mentioned above, this work pulls together a combination of exercises and modalities. It is built around three main pillars:
Love the Sound of Your Voice
Develop clarity, power, control, and stamina to sound confident and emotive.
Understand how the voice works and craft a sound that represents your true self.
Trust What You Want to Say
Trust your authentic self and clarify what you want to say.
Address limiting beliefs and replace old patterns with new confidence.

Cultivate the ability to foster relationships and deepen connections with others.

"If you’re looking for an amazing coach to help you build confidence in your presentations and really develop your voice - literally - then look no further than Sam Whitehouse. I worked with her when I first started to do video and audio recordings for my online programs and marketing and she did a masterful job of accelerating my progress. My voice totally transformed. I went from having zero understanding of the mechanics of voice and vocal projections to really understanding resonance and projection and the importance of your mind and body on your voice. That video launch I did ended up being a massive success and gave me an incredible foundation. She is an amazing teacher and I recommend her to everyone."
"I have been working with Sam for the past year on my public speaking and singing abilities. In addition to the usual fear of public speaking, I also have a stutter and Sam was able to determine my breathing was shallow, a very critical observation that many speech therapists did not pick up on. Sam is patient, caring and super flexible with scheduling. It has been a pleasure working with Sam and highly recommend her for all your vocal coaching needs."
“Sam coached me and a group of my colleagues at Aruba Networks (a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company) on presenting and public speaking. She made the session fun and interactive by peppering in the techniques and skillsets required for an effective and powerful singer as it would relate to a presenter before an audience… a very interesting addition to what other public speaking / communication / presenting courses that I’ve had in in the past are missing. As would be required for a strong singer before an audience, Sam coached the group to vocalize, powerfully and confidently, which is incredibly important, but seems to be missing in your traditional presentation courses. At the same time, she honed in on the power of authenticity in connecting with your audience, not just didactically, but through example with her own refined skills in connecting with our group. I have highly recommended her to former colleagues now at other firms and hope to see more presenters more effectively interact with their audience in the future… so much more fun, educational, and engaging than the vast majority of presentations most of us are exposed to routinely!”
“When I was looking for job, I need help with the Interview. I met with Sam. She was very helpful pointing out my improvement areas, and bringing in creative techniques for practice. This improves my confidence and clarify during presentation. She also followed up with me after sessions. I felt that she really cared about my progress and improvement. At the end of day, thanks to her help, I was able to find a decent job, ending the tough job-seeking journey. I really appreciate all the help from Sam and would definitely recommend her to anyone who looks to improve their interview, presentation, and vocal skills.”
