Abstract

Speaking as a client and practitioner, this paper aims to unite personal and professional experiences to explore the use of silence in facilitating the emergence of knowledge from within the vocal health client. Grounded in humanistic psychotherapy, where it is held that the client holds the keys to their recovery (Maslow, 1943), personal anecdotes from my experience of vocal challenges will be shared to illustrate how use of silence and non-verbal communication can encourage the conditions for change (Sullivan and Rees, 2008). The implications for professional practice will be considered through the lens of novel research investigating the application of Clean Language (Grove and Panzer, 1991; Wilson, 2019) and Symbolic Modelling (Thompson and Lawley, 2000) as tools for establishing the core conditions of a person-centred approach (Rogers, 1977) within singing voice habilitation.
