Clarissa currently works on the Voice and Head and Neck Cancer team at The Harley Street Clinic, London. She also works in Leeds Gender Identity clinic where she provides voice and communication therapy with trans and non-binary people. As well as her clinical work, she runs her own private practice in which she specialises in helping elite voice professionals to rehabilitate the voice and to master their instrument. She works holistically with each client and strongly believes that the voice and body are inextricably linked. Body realignment, tension release, breath and resonance work are the cornerstones of her practice. Clarissa believes in using a mixture of techniques from her creative and clinical backgrounds to achieve her clients’ desired results. Her passion for the performer’s voice led her to complete a Masters of Fine Arts in Voice Studies at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.  She received a scholarship from the Voice Care Network to carry out research on vocal pathology in teachers and ways of preventing it. She received a distinction for her work and presented her research at the British Voice Association’s ‘Choice for Voice’ conference in September 2021.
