Tonicity trauma & hurt programme

Tonicity Trauma & Hurt Programme

Tonicity is an 8-week singing therapy programme using an innovative approach initially developed in Sweden to support people post trauma.  It recognizes that the voice is an important part of how we express ourselves and it becomes small, lacking in confidence and even silent when we are traumatized, hurt or prevented from speaking out.

It is fair to say that for most people who have experienced trauma in their lives that singing would be the furtherest thing from their mind but the magic of music and song lift, invigorate and comfort. Recent research has shown that it reduces stress levels and blood pressure.

It is difficult to worry and sing simultaneously!

“Allow your voice its full freedom, it’s not about the quality of the voice but the intent behind it”
