I’d like to encourage a friend to participate in the McGuire Programme. How can I convince him or her of its value, or am I better advised not to push the issue?

It has to be your friend's decision to join the Programme and he or she must approach it with ownership, commitment and a motivation to do something about his/her stammering.

We're not interested in providing a quick fix that will give him/her a temporary fluency for a short while; we're much more concerned to work with him/her, for as long as it takes, to maintain the genuine long-term improvement of his speech.
