THERAPEUTIC SPEECH and SINGING
Finding one’s voice through the expressive life of language.
In times of distress and illness, speech may lose its strength, mobility and forming qualities, and the harmony of the breathing is often impaired. Through specific speech exercises and the inspiration of poetry, combined with gesture and movement, we encourage and direct our own healing capacities towards transformation, and the re-establishing of health-giving rhythms.
Often the voice range of the patient is very limited at the beginning of a singing therapy. This makes it all the more joyful to be amazed at how the tone and beauty of their own voice develops. Step by step they work out the elements of singing, healthy breathing, the sound element, as well as sound and tone formation, according to the diagnosis and their current condition. Singing therapy is a therapeutic method that addresses, strengthens and harmonises all levels of the human being.
Through painting, drawing and modelling, the inner world is explored in its connection to the surrounding environment.
With imaginative inquiry, we may come to terms with challenging life experiences, implementing change and growth. Artistic activity expands our consciousness, helping us to explore and share feelings and thoughts, especially when we struggle to find words to express emotional or physical distress.
