Our expert says:
Many of us have anxiety particularly in specific situations, social settings, or when we feel others might be assessing or criticizing us.
Simple basic psychological counselling, using well proven methods like CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) can be extremely helpful in these situations, and need not take long or be very expensive. Even a few sessions can make a real difference.
I am convinced that you do NOT need "voice training", and clinics who charge such very large amounts for methods for which they make large claims ( but which are not so far backed by good evaluations and research ) are not at all what I would recommend.
There's nothing wrong with your voice. What you have noticed is how your voice changes when you get nervous in office / business situations. If you were attached to measuring gadgets, we'd find your pulse rate goes up, your hands get sweaty and a bit shaky, and so on. Those are all effects of being anxious, and one can learn NOT to be anxious and to feel confident in such situations. You would not sensibly go to a Pulse Rate Clinic, and then a Sweaty Hands Clinic, and so on. You'd go to a proper psychologist using well tested methods like CBT, and deal with the basic cause, the anxiety itself. Once that is under your cobntrol, as it quite easily could be, your voice won't be a problem, even without any particular attention to it.
