Originally from the wilds of North East Scotland, Caroline moved to London with a band to make their fortune and ended up training as a Voice Movement Therapy Practitioner, qualifying in 2000. Since then it has been a privilege for her to work with hundreds of individuals and groups offering sessions in VMT voice production, singing, and creative improvisation. As a singer she draws on her own experiences and insights in finding her voice, to help others.
Her clients come for personal and for professional reasons. She offers them a safe, practical, sometimes provocative, always supportive space in which to explore vocal self-expression in response to individual needs.
