What is Sound and Voice Therapy?

There are many different styles of Sound and Voice therapy and, as you can imagine, if you google this question you will get a variety of answers.

This particular methodology of Sound and Voice therapy is that offered by The British Academy of Sound Therapy, (BAST) where I trained and qualified.

I think it aligns well with the Yes To Life ethos because this approach is person centered, with the premise that we all know ourselves better than anyone else can and so we can feel empowered on our own life/healing journey.

The “therapy” component is not only the benefit of us meeting together to engage in an activity but also about each one of us engaging individually with different exercises. This very engagement provides a springboard for ones’ own greater awareness and therefore ongoing understanding of oneself physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically.

It is about empowering ourselves for greater self-awareness and providing tools for facilitating our own self-balance.


About Ereni Mendrinos:

Ereni Mendrinos is a group facilitator with over 20 years of experience in working with adults, young adults and children, facilitating creative workshops, study skills seminars and public speaking workshops. She retrained to be a group Sound and Voice therapist in 2016 with The British Academy of Sound Therapy, in a bid to help her combat long-standing stress and anxiety, address the possible source of some long-term health issues and to support her work/life balance. She qualified with distinctions in both Sound and Voice Therapy in January of 2017. She has also since qualified as a Level 2 Reiki practitioner in June 2021.

Over the years Ereni has had the opportunity to study with voice-work luminaries such as Angela Caine, Jill Purce, Nikki Slade and Chloe Goodchild before embarking on her professional training. Her facilitation style draws on her background in theatre and performing arts, comedy, improvisation and as a singer-songwriter.

Having lived in London for most of her life she now also lives in Crete with her New Zealander husband, one fluffy English cat and one skinny ginger Cretan Tom-cat.
