"I offer my clients something real and tangible to allow their voice and self to be heard confidently" - Greg van Bergen

COACHING WITH A DIFFERENCE: Not satisfied with the traditional "life coach" framework, I'm setting out to help change the way people use their voice both literally and figuratively by creating an interactive coaching experience that transforms the way you present yourself in your everyday life and your career (eg. public speaking) by injecting purpose and value to your voice.

For over 14 years I have helped people literally find their voice through my specialist vocal coaching business Vocal Foundations in Melbourne Australia.
Finding ones voice is not only about vocal training though. It is a deep need for someone to confidently be themselves in this saturated world of being like everyone else.
Your voice
is YOU!

the GVB project beginnings

Imagine this. You are automatically enrolled at birth in the “School of Life”. You have no choice in this matter. On the first day, you are given an assignment, a “project" to complete. You can’t even understand it. Your brain hasn’t even developed enough to comprehend what you are meant to do or how to do it. Yet, you manage to press on and make a start. Over time it feels like the other students are somehow cheating, or getting an undue advantage, but you keep going, doing the best you can.
Your ideas and your own voice just doesn't sound right. You second guess yourself. You may feel like a fraud. You may even cheat, copy, lie in order to be seen as doing a better “project”. The stress and the anxiety to get it right can be overwhelming. You may even give up. 
Its completion date varies from one student to the next. This doesn’t seem fair in itself, yet once again you keep going.
If you are fortunate enough there will be a point in time where you get the chance to have a final look-over your project. I imagine mine to be presented on an oversized brightly coloured multimedia-enabled poster card (like a large, thin flexible touch screen). Perhaps by the time I get to review my project, such a product will exist. I imagine holding it up, arms stretched in front of me with the proudest childlike grin for the final photograph.
The title in large bold writing will read: “The GVB Project”. I say it out loud in my own voice... proudly and confidently.
The only rule no one will tell you when creating your project is that you cannot erase any previous workings. You will certainly discover this the hard way. It will suck, it will hurt and you will do it again. I like to think that if you only have one "mid-life crisis" in your project, then you're not having enough. When you reflect and re-assess your project, you have the chance to steer it in the direction you want and say the things you want to say.
One of my favourite quotes is, "You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole journey that way" (E.L. Doctorow).
I have no interest in The GVB Project being better than anyone else’s project. In fact, The GVB Project is about helping you with yours. It's time for your voice to shine.
