Speech Pathology Voice Services
Voice problems can include a hoarse, husky, strained or shaky voice. It can be difficult to carry your voice across background noise or fatigues after talking. Voice problems can also cause a tight, scratchy, uncomfortable or sore throat which may make you want to cough or clear your throat.
Anyone can develop a voice problem.
A Speech Pathologist can assist you to work on interventions to improve your voice quality and advise if an ENT referral is needed.

Who is Appropriate for Voice Services?
People who are at higher risk include people who need to use their voice for their work such as teachers, vocal performers, call centre workers, barristers or aged care workers. Voice problems can also be caused by medical conditions such as stroke or the normal aging process.
It is important to ask your doctor for a referral to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist (ENT) if you are concerned about your voice.
