What is a
Vocal Habilitation Professional?

This qualification gives singing teachers and voice teachers the ability to work with singers and other voice users who have been experiencing problems relating to their vocal health. They will have completed Vocal Health First Aid (including assessments) before they can join the Vocal Habilitation Professional pathway.

To complete the training the VHP needs to have at least 1,000 hours of teaching experience or direct client interactions, plus at least 20 hours of study from continuing professional development providers. The qualified VHP will also need to comply with the legal frameworks of their own country. In the UK we expect a VHP to have DBS checks, Safeguarding training, and the relevant professional insurance cover.

HonFVHFE

Honorary Fellow

This level of membership is reserved for those who are leaders in the field of Voice Rehabilitation and Therapy after dedicating years of their professional lives to helping care for peoples’ voices.
This is an invited membership level, with 3 Honorary Fellowships awarded each year.

Our first Honorary Fellowship was awarded to Christina Shewell on the 30th January 2022.

Christina Shewell

Christina Shewell, MA, FRCSLT ADVS, is a spoken voice teacher, and speech / language therapist, and has long working experience with a wide range of clients in both voice therapy and voice development. She has particular expertise in working with performers, and other professional voice users.

For 11 years, she was senior lecturer in voice and counselling skills at University College London, has been a staff member of major British acting schools, a coach in the business world and has spoken at many conferences. She leads a wide range of training courses, both nationally and internationally.

Christina’s book Voice Work: Art and Science in Changing Voices (2009) addresses voice work along the continuum of normal-abnormal voice, in singing, spoken voice coaching and voice pathology, and is a core text for a wide range of voice practitioners. She has a particular interest in the relevance of mindfulness and imagery in voice work and well-being, and in the links between voice, neuroscience, body and emotions.

Her most recent article, Poetry, Voice, Brain and Body is published in the July 2020 Voice and Speech Review – the journal of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA).
