Meet Sharon Wright
– The Voice Whisperer
Since the year dot, I sang (so my mum tells me).
I remember singing to the birds in our garden and my pet rabbit as a teenager - It was a natural expression that felt very joyful to me.
As a teen and young woman, I never feeling quite good enough and compared myself with other singers so I stopped singing for a while. But it wasn't long before I realised that this comparison and self-critique showed up in my corporate job and later in my own business. How long was I going to stay stuck?
I never dreamed I'd be a professional singer and I certainly wouldn't have imagined that I would become a company director and later own my own business, such was my lack of self-worth. But life teaches us a thing or two and we tend to meet certain people along the way who, if we are paying attention, will say something that maybe triggers some ancient memory and sparks the first question of transformation - why?
Now I love my voice. It's a unique voice, like everyone else's and it allows me to express myself as only I can. It can enrich others and it continuously helps me to evolve. It's precious, spacious and loving; gentle in quality but powerful in authority.
At least this is true when I am totally present and not pulled out of the flow by life's distractions! (and that's another story haha).
Loving your voice means loving yourself. When you stop putting conditions on your voice and expression, you stop putting those same conditions on yourself so self-critique and self-bashing just get exposed as expressions that are not true. It makes me wonder how I could ever have hated or held back a part of myself that expresses what I’m here to express.
What might you be holding back on, and what’s your voice got to do with it?
I love coaching and teaching people to use their voices. My approach has naturally evolved over the years and is now quite holistic in that it’s not solely focused on one specific goal, i.e. to use your voice for a particular outcome, but rather helps you to awaken your true soul-aligned voice and express yourself powerfully, authentically and confidently in all areas of life. It focuses on reconnecting to your whole body instrument harmoniously so that using your voice, for whatever purpose, is not just a mere performance-based activity but a healing modality too.
But there is a caveat to that. I have a special love of the written voice too and I love creating content. Check out the page: Your Soul-aligned Voice in Business for entrepreneurs with bouncy minds who want more focus and clarity on defining and nailing their high-impact client-attracting content in a crowded and noisy online marketplace. This page, as you can imagine is tailored specifically to your voice and your business. Crafting your unique message, showing up online consistently and voice techniques to stay steady on sales calls and when coaching or consulting, to name a few of the topics that will be coming up.

But most of all I've discovered my soul-aligned voice and I can help you to connect to yours - I promise that you'll fall in love with it!
Why the Voice Whisperer?
When I was a child I was passionate about horses and I loved the gentler training methods that horse whisperer’s use.
A horse already knows its own power, but when it is triggered to be fearful, it loses confidence and bolts, becomes aggressive or withdraws from its true nature. The horse whisperer reminds the horse of its gentle and noble nature by simulating the movements of the lead mare of the herd.
So, what can we learn with regard to connection and movement from a horse whisperer?
By reconnecting to your true essence through specific movements (in this case gentle and tension-free voice techniques) you become the voice whisperer of your own expression.
When vocal coaching, I use gentle training methods that don’t force the voice because any tension, strain, pushing or forcing the voice is counterproductive and has you fighting against your own body instrument. Your voice won't sound authentic, free and beautiful if it is being pushed.
Instead, we work on gently coaxing your voice back out of the swamp of insecurity and bringing it into its beautiful strength and purpose. You will feel a connection with it that not only helps you to sing and express yourself confidently and powerfully, but it will resonate with the beauty of your heart and have an impact on all areas of life such as your work, relationships and your health
