Katrien Eerdekens – Speech & Voice Therapist
“The voice is a second face.” – Gérard Bauer.

Our voice is the most powerful instrument that we – people – use to express ourselves. By using our vocal chords in a controlled way we can transform our thoughts, feelings and even identity into sound. It’s precicely this goal – helping people to reclaim their own sound – that has become my profession and passion. After graduating as a Speech and Language therapist, I obtained a Postgraduate specialization in voice therapy at the Thomas More College in 2015.

In my practice in Antwerp (Berchem) I mostly treat patients with voice issues and disorders. Here, I intensively coach my patients in order to find or reclaim their own healthy and relaxed voice. In addition to this I focus on the treatment of pathological voices or voice therapy after head or neck surgeries.

With great passion and enthouasiasm I guide and support transwomen in the search for their ideal tone of voice , intonation and nonverbal communication. My approach, in essence, is educational. Ideally you, the patient, become the master of your own voice and communication style.
