As both a performer and practitioner, Amanda knows that public performances, as well as public speaking and presentations, can be quite daunting, often resulting in stage fright. This, in turn, shuts down our vocal mechanism and has the ability to send our bodies into flight or fight modes.
With qualified and empathetic guidance, Amanda can help you become empowered, take control of your own voice and body, and, in turn, become more confident.
