Why Your Voice is a More Powerful Ally in Healing your Stress, than ‘’Talk Therapy”

Well, to start with we need to recognize 2 things (that I’ve learned in over 30 years as a  stress and trauma therapist, and more recently as a sound coach): Talk-therapy relies on what you’re consciously aware of.
