Own Your Voice.
Vocal Confidence Workshop
So many people come to me because they feel like they can’t speak up, or that when they do find the courage to speak up, they simply aren’t heard or listened to.
Are you ready to build confidence and feel more comfortable speaking up in your daily life? Are you tired of feeling like you are holding yourself back from being more impactful at work? Are you ready to have more meaningful and productive conversations with friends and loved ones?
It starts with self-trust.
You are Allowed to Feel Safe and Be Seen.
You have permission to trust that your knowledge, insights, wisdom, experience, wants and needs are all valid and that you are safe and in command when you share them with the people around you.
And guess what? You already have everything you need right inside you.
This Own Your Voice workshop will help you befriend the sound voice, tap into your inner confidence, and put you back in the driver’s seat of your communication…and ultimately, your life.
What Happens in This Workshop?
There is a lot packed into this teeny workshop! Through a series of super fun group vocal exercises, written exercises, partner dialogue, and group coaching you will:
- Hear (and love!) the sound of your voice in a totally new way.
- Clear limiting beliefs that have been preventing you from speaking up.
- Learn new ways to openly communicate your thoughts.
- Experience the magic of T a k i n g U p S p a c e.
Is This Workshop for Me?
This workshop is perfect for anyone who:
- Is tired of feeling afraid or hesitant, or otherwise holding themselves back at work or at home.
- Wants to build confidence while having fun and meeting new people.
- Is interested in Vocal Confidence Coaching, but are not sure if 1-to-1 coaching is right for you.
- Has previously attended a workshop, group or private coaching with Sam but wants a refresher.
- This workshop welcomes new and returning clients, as well as people of all genders, cultures and professional backgrounds.
“Sam, your workshops have been a game-changer for me. I am a much better public speaker, better communicator at my job, and overall more confident at speaking up! I know this because I feel more at EASE when I speak in challenging situations. The practices that we learned in the workshops really helped me use my voice to declare what I want and also OWN IT.”
“I love working with Sam! I have participated in two of her Own Your Voice workshops. The first time I went, I did not know what to expect but I took alway way more than I ever could have imagined. It was so good that I came back for a second workshop! In the workshops, we do some inner work, group journaling and discussion. Then, we learn how to use our body and voice and practice it in a safe environment. I have noticed how this work has helped me improve my confidence and communication at my job, business, relationships and more! I love this practice and can’t wait to work with Sam more!”

I love working with Sam! I have participated in two of her Own Your Voice workshops. The first time I went, I did not know what to expect but I took away way more than I ever could have imagined. It was so good that I came back for a second workshop! In the workshops, we do some inner work, group journaling and discussion. Then, we learn how to use our body and voice and practice it in a safe environment. I have noticed how this work has helped me improve my confidence and communication at my job, business, relationships and more! I love this practice and can’t wait to work with Sam more!
I contacted Sam when I had some communications challenges at work and our 5 sessions were really helpful. It was therapy, confidence building, soft skills building, and communications techniques all rolled into one. Sam is very insightful and her instincts are spot on. She’s amazing!
There are not enough good things I can say about Sam and her work. Sam’s mission to help others use, own, and amplify their voices is something that will positively influence everything from your ability to convey what you want in relationships, to your leadership presence, to how you show up in the world (and even your singing!). She embodies her mission by continually providing opportunities for others to step into their power by questioning their assumptions, getting to the root of their symptoms, and by practicing asking for what they want and need. Her ability to draw out emotions and learnings in others, combined with her direct yet loving ability to give feedback, allows others to step into their power and feel supported along the way. I would absolutely recommend Sam if you are ready to live more fully and intentionally, with more confidence so that you can increase your positive impact in the world.
I reached out to Sam with the goal of improving my communication skills and to develop a stronger executive presence for some challenging scenarios. Over the course of a few months, we worked through various exercises and shifted focus as my work took a few twists and turns. Sam was always amazingly supportive and encouraging while offering spot-on advice and guidance. She helped me to break down challenges into specific takeaways to focus on each week, and was consistently supportive in following up. Sam is an excellent coach, and wonderful to work with.
Sam has been a before and after for both my personal and professional life. Coming from another country where English is not the first language has been somehow challenging, and I have struggled at communicating feedback, decisions, or stories because I felt very self-doubtful. After several sessions, I noticed that we weren't tackling specifically that, but many other aspects of how I talk, the words I use, why I say the things I say, among other things, that all indirectly were adding or affecting me in many other ways, but super related to my insecurities. Sam has helped me feel more confident with myself and with my inner voice (no pun intended). I have become more mindful of the words I use, in a natural way. I can't stress enough how much Sam has impacted me personally and professionally. So grateful to have met her!
Sam is an amazing coach and just overall wonderful person. She goes above and beyond to help me understand and unlock my potential as a business leader, acknowledge and appreciate my fears, and helped me navigate through my insecurities. I have learned so much about myself in the first 3 months we've worked together and time flew fast. She successfully guided me thru managing tough conversations, how to listen to my intuitions and trust in myself, and to be confident in my voice. I feel empowered every time I talk to her and even after our sessions when I apply my learnings in the workplace. I am forever grateful for her wisdom, her passion, and her infectious positive energy. Thank you, Sam!
“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.”
“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!”
"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."
"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."
