Embodied Voice                 

LIBERATE your expression

Cultivate CONFIDENCE

 

Communicate with POWER and PRESENCE

 

Do you remember the first time you shut down your voice? The moment you decided your voice was not ‘good enough’? Not important? Not heard? 

Do you feel the pounding in your chest when called to speak or present in front of a group? The butterflies in your stomach, the fear and constriction around your throat as you mumble your words and speed through your delivery as quickly as possible, hoping nobody will judge you?

How many times have you silenced your truth or not even spoken up and asked for what you want? Have there been times you’ve wanted to assert your boundaries with a firm ‘no’ but all you could manage was a shaky ‘ok’? 

Our throat chakra is our expression centre, our energetic centre of communication, creativity and confidence. Our voice is intrinsically linked with our feelings and emotions, our sensuality, our sense of permission and our sense of self.

It literally affects EVERY part of our lives, from the way we communicate in our relationships, to the way we share our business or creativity with the world or the way we ‘sell’ ourselves in interviews and opportunities…. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we are telling the world who we are in every moment with our body language, our tone of voice and our words.

People have come to me for all different reasons over the years. Often it starts with wanting to do singing lessons and learn a few vocal techniques but as we commence it’s clear they’re seeking much much more…....

 

Often they’re struggling with;

  • Lack of confidence speaking, communicating or sharing their voice or opinion

  • Nervousness or anxiety about speaking / singing/ presenting publicly

  • Mental or emotional blockages inhibiting their creative expression or voice

  • Being overly critical of themselves, their body, their voice, their expression to the point of freeze

  • Stuck in perfectionist mode - not feeling ‘good enough’ or frightened to ‘get it wrong’

  • Feeling disconnected from their body, all up in their head

  • Fear of being judged, shamed, ridiculed

  • Feeling unclear about their message

Before working with Kattimoni, I felt self-conscious about my voice and I was afraid to speak up in meetings or large gatherings. I thought my voice was too high-pitched, I didn’t know how to control my tone or volume and I hated listening to recordings of myself singing or speaking. 

Kattimoni taught me the techniques that enabled me to gain more control of my voice and the confidence and self acceptance I needed to feel good about my voice and I am no longer reluctant to speak up or listen to recordings of myself.

I no longer ‘hate’ my voice. I now LOVE my voice. 

I highly recommend Kattimoni as a coach. She has such a natural, encouraging presence and her lessons are fun and productive. If I could describe my experience in one word it would be: Empowering."

What would it feel like to speak your truth with presence, clarity and conviction?

To articulate yourself authentically and actually ask for what you desire?

 

What would it be like to carry yourself with grace, ease and a full inner permission to take up space and feel seen, heard and celebrated in your uniqueness?

 

To let go of the judging, comparing, limiting beliefs of yourself and experience the pure joy in your raw natural voice and embodied expression?

As a Facilitator, Podcast host and soon to be Mama, I embarked on this journey with the desire of greater freedom & confidence in my expression and it's been a dream come true! Over the course of our sessions I became more confident & at ease with my voice, vocal expression and toning exploration than I ever could have imagined at the start.

Kattimoni held space for my vulnerabilities while lovingly encouraged my explorations. She joyfully celebrated my advances & gave extraordinary feedback & practices to support my growth. For every session that I started with a bit of trepidation, I ended with joyful laughter & feeling more embodied than before.

I highly recommend Kattimoni to the woman who is ready to claim her power & voice.

“It helped me feel more connected to myself and to believe in myself. On one hand it challenged me to give myself permission to express my authentic voice with clarity and confidence yet at the same time I loved the safe space to be vulnerable whilst working through my blocks. I have discovered a different type of self-love and self-confidence to express myself now’

~ Donna Gale

As someone who has spent their life touring and performing on stages all around the world, most people don't believe me when I tell them I failed music in high school. I still remember my teacher  telling me 'Music just isn't your thing, perhaps you should try art instead?'

But it was never a lack of talent, passion or ability that stopped me, it was the intense stage fright and performance anxiety developed in my teens. It was the low self esteem, the highly critical inner voice and the fear of judgment that had me in freeze mode. I was sooo shy about singing in front of people I would actually skip school on exam days just to avoid performing!

Over the years I dedicated myself to working through a lot of these emotional blocks and mental limitations and have gone on to develop my voice and enjoy a juicy creative life and career in music. I have recorded and released original albums, fronted 9 piece bands, toured internationally and performed at festivals and on stages around the world. I've had my songs played on radio and even been a judge on on one of Australia's #1 reality TV shows.

I've also had the pleasure and the honour of supporting a lot of other people to transform their relationship with their voice and learn how to overcome their fears and find their authentic voice.
