Struggling with Vocal Technique, could my Diaphragm be to Blame?

Hi guys, my singing teacher often reproaches me for pushing too hard with my voice. If I push so much, could it be due to improper use of the diaphragm?

    Nobody has answered, so I will give it a thought.
    I believe yes - you may not have enough diaphragmatic support and then you look for power from "bad sources", like engaging the jaw musculature, alternatively neck tension by pushing from that area, if you sound shouty. That's my own experience, for what it's worth.
