Martin Badway

M. Speech & Language Pathology, B. Music (Voice), B.Health Science (Hearing & Speech)
Speech Pathologist

Martin Badway is a Master of Speech Pathology graduate and a practicing member of Speech Pathology Australia. He has a special interest in Clinical Laryngology. This includes voice and swallowing disorders of a neurological, neurogenic, and functional nature, pre and post surgical rehabilitation of the voice as well as organic pathologies. Martin also completed the 'The Voice Therapy Spectrum' which qualifies him to use the gold-standard in voice therapies including Lessac-Madsen Resonant Voice, Casper-Stone Flow, and the Adventures in Voice Program for vocal fold nodules. 

Formerly a classical singer, with an undergraduate degree in music from the Sydney Conservatorium, he is in a unique position to apply his knowledge of healthy singing techniques and vocal pedagogy as part of evidence-based practice to treat individuals across the gender spectrum as they discover a voice that is congruent with their identity. He provides personal development and clinical training sessions to disseminate his own methods of voice therapy for gender-voice to other gender voice practices and sole clinicians in Australia. He regularly seeks personal development and supervision by leading clinicians in the country and is an attendee and member of The Laryngology Society of Australasia. Furthermore, he is involved in a holistic model of care that combines speech pathology with surgical intervention by leading otolaryngologists to achieve pitch and resonance changes for both trans-masculine and trans-feminine individuals. As a singer who understands vocal science he is able to treat both transmasculine and transfeminine individuals as well as those on the gender spectrum because he is able to model the desired outcomes for his patients at the target higher pitches. 

Martin is in a unique position as part of a multi-disciplinary practice of psychologists and psychiatrists at King Street Psychology who are involved in conducting and implementing the latest research into their evidence-based practice; He is therefore not only culturally informed but also exposed to the latest research on gender and sexuality and therefore able to treat gender voice in a holistic way.  

Martin provides assessment and therapy for voice, fluency, swallowing and social skills to adolescents and adults across their lifespan. At King Street Psychology he sees patients face-to-face or via Telehealth and runs the monthly ‘Foundations of Transformation/feminisation’ voice workshops and the gender spectrum choir ‘Transposition’.
