Speech Pathology for Adults in Melbourne

Hi, I'm Sarah!

Director & Founder at Voice Science

Sarah Lobegeiger de Rodriguez in full. Yes, there's 10 syllables in my name! But for comfort's sake, you can just call me Sarah, so don't freak about how to pronounce my name- I can always show you later! I started Voice Science in 2013 because I saw that there was a need for strategic, research based communication consulting.

As a speech pathologist and opera singer I knew there is both a science and art to getting the communication impact you need.

Since that time our team of speech pathologists have been providing communication consulting to individuals and companies.

Sarah is not working with new clients. Join her waitlist here.

Meet Fabian

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST

If you want to meet an inspiring person who gets things done, consider this! Fabian's positivity may make it seem that life was easy for him, but the reality is he comes from a humble family background and like the majority of international students,  had to work in multiple part-time jobs to continue supporting his studies, pay rent, food, and transport, all with the goal of securing a better future for himself and his family. In this experience, he noticed the health implications that repetitive heavy tasks have on an individual’s physical and mental health.

In the search for a new industry and further studies, Occupational Therapy (OT) found Fabian at the right time (he believes that it was love at first sight as it happens in Spanish telenovelas). During OT studies, Fabian understood the importance of working smarter and not harder. This allowed him to successfully complete his studies and obtain his professional registration in 2017.

Now, 5 years later, Fabian has extensive expertise in the many diverse areas that Occupational Therapy provides support in. 

With skills in community, aged care, return to work and disability support services, his favourite areas of practice are:

  • NDIS 
  • Autism
  • Community health
  • Disability
  • Environmental modifications
  • Mental health
  • Motorized mobility devices
  • Occupational rehabilitation
  • Rehabilitation

Fabian has a natural capacity to empathise, advocate and help people, all done with a big smile and a practical approachable manner.

In his free time, Fabian enjoys riding his segway around the leafy streets of Melbourne while drinking coffee at the same time, cycling and watching Indian street food videos!

Fabian has a Bachelor of languages (English and Spanish), Master of Translating and Interpreting (RMIT) and a Master of Occupational Therapy Practice from La Trobe University. He is registered with AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, and a full member of Occupational Therapy Australia (OTA).

 

Meet Laura

SPEECH PATHOLOGIST

They say that variety is the spice of life and here’s a clinician who wants the whole spice rack!

Laura has international experience as a Speech Pathologist and Teacher of English from her time living in London and southern Spain. And if there’s one thing she loves, it’s learning languages! Laura has studied Italian to mastery level and speaks advanced Spanish. Her overseas adventures have given her so much insight into the challenges and beauty of learning and living in foreign languages, and she applies all of this empathy to her interactions with clients.

She is always so honoured to help clients achieve their goals and communicative potential. She strives to make every session collaborative and flexible, tapping into what is most important for each of her clients.

Laura has an enormous soft spot for music and singing, and is currently pursuing studies in flamenco guitar, ¡Olé! Keep an eye out for her performing soppy love songs at weddings, jamming with Brazilian drumming groups and (she hopes one day) busking along Southbank!

Laura has a Bachelor of Arts (Italian and linguistics) and a Master of Speech Pathology from the University of Melbourne, and an Advanced Certificate in English Language Teaching. She is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist.
