My voice is like a girl’s voice due to which I have lost all my confidence. My isc (Indian School Certificate) results are out but I don’t want to join any college because of my voice. I have not yet joined any kind of vocal therapy. Can you please advise me of any doctor or hospital name around Darjeeling, my home town, because I can’t go abroad.
You are very brave to reach out for help and I know you will find what you need! I am not connected to speech therapists where you are, but this link will bring up a listing of audiologists and speech pathologists in India – Rehabilitaion Council of India. If there is not a listing of someone near you, contact people on the list until they can refer someone. Do not give up until you have achieved your goal of finding the help you need. You can also go to a local ear nose and throat doctor, or a laryngologist, because they usually work with audiologists and speech pathologists so they could also refer you to someone. Also, when a doctor examines your vocal cords he or she might find a physical reason for the way your voice sounds and they might have a treatment. If you do not know a doctor, you can go into any hospital and say that you are researching where to find a voice doctor and speech pathologist. Because you never give up, someone will have an answer and be able to refer you. You might have to follow several referrals but know this: you can definitely find the help you need! I have learned from my work over many years that sometimes the hardest challenges bring about the most extraordinary gifts. Furthermore, once you go to college there will be teachers there who can help you, so go ahead and make your plans. Everything will turn out!
