Since forming Vocal Health Education, one question that comes up time and again is, “When are you doing a podcast?!” Well we now have an answer! It’s NOW! The Thinking Voice podcast by Dr Jenevora Williams, Robert Sussuma and Stephen King is all about exploring the human voice through open conversation. The podcast is split in to two types of episode; INTERVIEWS and CONVERSATIONS. The Interviews; The Interviews will be released every two weeks, and will follow a standard interview format, with one host interviewing a special guest. The topic of conversation is always about how the guest journeyed into the world of Vocal Health. The Conversations; The conversations are real time, unplanned musings between Dr Jenevora Williams, Stephen King and Robert Sussuma and include phenomenological, existential, anatomic, pedagogic and experiential motor learning principles. The nature of these conversations will see a one word topic be steered down all kinds of cobbled conversational streets between the three hosts, unpicking relevant research (sometimes published by the hosts themselves) or anecdotal concepts and “practice based evidence”. We can’t wait to share this with you!For more information:Vocal Health Education: www.vocalhealth.co.ukThe Singing Self - Robert Sussuma: www.thesingingself.comJenevora Williams: www.jenevorawilliams.com

The Robyn Chauvin Episode
Robert Sussuma interviews Robyn Chauvin about the psychology of self.
“I invite you into the room with me, all of you, including the aspects of yourself that you may have difficulties with. Therapy is a form of play where one experiments with ways of being. In doing this you begin to discover and ultimately let go of what is getting in the way of having a full rich and joyful life. You will discover a multitude of choices of how to approach life and relationships. You will find the opportunity to step into your freedom. This leads to more openness, presence, and creativity”
