Voice Therapy was set up by Lorna McCarthy to create a service dedicated to voice and the systems that support voice.  The aim is to provide a comfortable environment in which you can raise your concerns about your voice, discuss what you would like your voice to be able to do, and target specific goals for your voice that we can focus on step by step.
