Jack Widger is my name. I’ve had a stutter for as long as I can remember.
It was difficult for me to socialise, to make friends and to work in any environment where I had to communicate. I went through college struggling to do presentations for my course and talking to teachers and supervisors.
In June 2017 I went on my first McGuire Programme course determined to turn myself around for my own sake. It was an unforgettable experience and I look back on it as one of the best decisions I’ve made.
The months of hard work paid off. I’m now in a place where I find it much easier to meet new people and I’m happy to take part in public speaking events.
The unlimited lifetime support provided by the McGuire Programme has been invaluable to me and I would recommend anyone with a stutter to give it a go.
