A real benefit of the McGuire Programme is the ongoing access to coaching and support that is available after a person's first intensive course. This allows graduates to continue working on their speech with the support of experienced members of the programme, as well as attending follow-on 'refresher' courses to help those that are beginning their journey beyond stuttering.

Being on the Programme has given me the tools to tackle challenging speaking situations and achieve what I want in my career.

I enjoy giving back to the Programme and helping new students overcome their fears and start their journey to freedom.

I have met some wonderful people from all over Australia (and the world) who share similar issues to me, but we also share the will and motivation to overcome them - and that is what makes the McGuire Programme so successful.

Over 60 graduates of the Australian Programme attended the recent course in Melbourne to pay tribute to a national icon. Geoff Johnston joined the programme in 1999, and took on the role of Regional Director in 2001. After 13 years and 70+ courses in the position, he was touched that so many graduates travelled across the country to thank him in person for the inspiration, motivation and dedication he has shown in helping so many on their road to freedom.
