Our days are really varied and action packed. One hour could be spent assisting a marketing manager to increase their voice projection for large team meetings, the next might be briefing a transport company on how to improve their communication processes to boost public attention. Or, an out of office site visit to conduct team training in an insurance firm to boost client engagement for their telephone staff. If we are not doing those things, you’d find us in fun therapy sessions advocating for our individual clients.
Ok, but what's a Speech & Language Pathologist?
Please don’t feel shy to ask or not know! There is no such thing as a dumb question.
Speech & Language Pathology is a medical profession that addresses all aspects of how humans communicate over the life span.
This field of study is based in Science, if you zoom right in, it is actually an allied health science.
Yep, we are in the same family as psychologists,
We study human communication behaviour extensively
Speech pathologists apply clinical assessment and intervention to provide practical strategies for their clients.
We are trained extensively in the neurology (in particular how the brain processes and plans language, speech sounds, social communication, voice and swallowing), anatomy (for head and neck), physiology (for neurological language processing, voice production, speech movements, swallowing) as well as research methods, clinical training and so many other things!

There isn't a Personal Blueprintfor your Communication Success unless you make it
There’s the tone of your voice…
The flow of your speaking…
The flexibility of your vocabulary…
All these things and many more can make or break your message.
Sometimes it goes swimmingly. High five for those times? We hope you know them.
Othertimes, we’re facepalming.
When something goes wrong while you’re speaking it stings.
Why is that?
Speaking needs strategybecause we are always dealing with a spontaneous moment that will soon be over...
How can we keep up without strategy?
The voice is a muscle that takes skill to perfect.
How can we keep our tone more engaging and resonant?
Pronunciation is like doing Rocket Science in your mouth.
How can we make it clearer to pack a punch?
Speech fluency is volatile.
How can we keep it consistent?
Finding the words is delicate.
How can we use them logically?
Catching listener attention and building listener engagement is increasingly more difficult in a distracted world.
How can we market our own message from our lips so that people listen?
This is where our team can help you. We’ve spent countless hours working with a massive range of clients to level up their communication comfort!

Create Insanely Powerful Communication Goals
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Tony Robbins

However there is a true art form to setting goals and following through with them to allow you to actually accomplish your dream. And it’s not as hard as you may think.
