My Voice Experience
In high school, after school, I signed up to do radio for our High School. It was after an English teacher of mine had highly recommended that I give it a try. Saying that I had that distinctive, articulate, honest, friendly, and a mature sounding voice. He was very persistent that I give it a try. And, so I did for 3 years of my high school days. Loving every moment of it.
I also had seen an act where a hypnotist had asked a couple people to come on stage with him for entertainment. After the show, he thanked the participants and noted to them prior to their awakening, that they now will now see themselves in the mirror, feeling more confident and empowered. I was completely taken back by this show and decided to pursuit therapeutic hypnosis classes. I am now certified to practice. Opening an office two years ago, allowed me to help others with issues regarding smoking sensation, weight loss, stress management, overcoming fears and phobias, sports enhancement, as well as confidence enhancement. During these sessions, I would go from my professional voice, to a soothing, natural, alluring voice that helped patients of mine to feel calm and more relaxed. Thanks to that one show I attended, I was able to help many overcome issues in their everyday lives.
