The Sound Confidence workshop that I’ve created is intended to help people begin to conquer their lack of self-confidence i.e. to create new confidence and possibly recognise where confidence already exists. I hope that people will pick up more helpful ways of communicating so as to prevent further knocks to their self-confidence. I believe, from my own experiences, that by focusing on the words I’m using (sounds I’m creating) and whether I’m projecting my voice appropriately that my lack of self-confidence is not exacerbated by me worrying about my lack of self-confidence and feelings of inadequacy. The workshop involves me describing part of my journey on my road of recovery, an observation of a mindfulness exercise, and 3 activities from a Theatre Studies course that I attend which helped me recognise my own confidence issues. Students are under no obligation to discuss any of their challenges, but are welcome to do so if they feel safe enough to.
