It's been more than 30 years since driven by the need and pleasure of singing I began to walk with growing curiosity and passion through the landscape of the Expression through the Voice. The intimate connections among psyche, emotion, body and vocal expression on creativity and inside the human relationships focuses the area of my interest and research. A place where I move with clarity, freshness and creativity. The knowledge gained from being in constant contact with the voice allows me to have a deep understanding about the human voice in all its broadest sense. My everyday work takes place between two professional fields; artistic creativity and emotional and physical health.
Graduate in Drama I worked as a theater actor and combined my classical singing training with Speech Therapy studies . Afterwards I went to London where I was certificated in Voicework by the Royal Society of Arts and I got also Voice Movement Therapy Certificate . In the therapeutic side of Vocal Expression I studied with Paul Newham, (inspired by the pioneering work of Alfred Wolfshon) and Amayo Katherine-Barfred, and in the artistic side of Vocal Expression I trained with Siam Thomas, Linda Wise, Enrique Pardo Noah Pikes, Vicente Fuentes and Pere Sais from a Roy Hart Theater approach . Attracted by the relationship between voice, body and psyche and in order to root the voice and emotional expression in the body and in the relationship with the other, I got closer Bionergetics Analysis (psychosomatic psychotherapy). Later on I became a Bionergetics Analyst by I.I.B.A. And through Bionergetic Analysis. I knew T.R.E.and of its hand I found a world of simplicity, depth, clarity, tranquility and essence. The complementarities and differences between T.R.E. and psychotherapy shows me that in itself these differences are a richness, an exercise of blending nuances and differentation of targets. T.R.E. taught me how to dialogue with the neurogenic tremors and these talks showed me a way to deep the voice in the body, and to go deeper within myself through my voice. The movement of the voice becomes more flexible, the perception of the corporal sensations that support the delivery of the voice are tempered, acute. In adition to this, the inner and outer listening turn into something deeper and more subtle.
