How Alison Can Help
- Are you constantly repeating yourself or ignored in meetings?

If English is your second language, is your accent a problem?
Alison is an expert in bringing about meaningful accent change and has a 25 year record of success.
- Or, are you a speech trainer looking to learn how to use the ClearSpeak Method?
Private trainer tutorials with Alison are available.
- Accent change (for either Non-English or English background speakers)
- Pronunciation improvement for mumbled speech
- Adjustment of very fast speech
- Greater variety of intonation to create impact
- Assertive voice
- Voice projection and the technique for ‘safe’ loud speech
- Enhancement of voice quality (changing strident, breathy,
nasal or high pitched speech)
- Style change to better reflect your chosen sexual orientation
If so, a ClearSpeak program will help you reach your goal.
- Six Week Program
Usually suitable for those wishing to improve voice, speed of speech, intonation and body language. If accented speech is an issue, then a longer program is required.
- Twelve Week Program
Usually suitable for those seeking to improve clarity of pronunciation or modify the impact of foreign or regional accent. Those who speak English as a second language will require a program of this length.
Programs begin with a comprehensive assessment of all aspects of your speaking style. This is followed by the recommended number of training sessions of one hour each. Sessions are generally held once a week to enable you to apply and consolidate what you have learnt. A short review session may be held three or four months after your program to review progress and provide you with feedback for further learning.
The program fee includes all ClearSpeak recorded audio exercises and printed materials. Progress reports are provided for corporate sponsors if required.
For those keen to get started with their own training, see our complete training instruction book Perfect Pronunciation.
Private or small group tutorials are available for speech therapists and certified English language trainers. These two hour tutorials with Alison Kimble are arranged on request and are aimed at both experienced pronunciation trainers as well as those branching into this field. The content is tailored to suit participants but in general covers discussion of the concepts and techniques of the ClearSpeak Method of pronunciation change plus the CAP Test of sound assessment. It includes real time demonstration of how to train selected sounds in a client brought to the session by the participant. The Perfect Pronunciation book is essential pre-reading for the tutorial. A letter of completion is provided if required for Professional Self Regulation purposes. More information and fee on request.
