Do you stutter? Be the best you can be. Give yourself that chance!
Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect. – Vince Lombard
Once we had learnt and practiced the techniques we could introduce the physiological aspects and combine both the physical and the physiological aspects and have both working hand-in-hand. Putting into action what we practiced in training.
As Susan Jeffers says ‘Feel the fear, and do it anyway’. Don’t wait for the fear to dissipate, it won’t. The longer you wait for the fear to go away, the more intense the feeling grows. Susan Jeffers states that becoming aware of your fears and your limitations can change your life as long as you learn how to deal with them. All through life we will come across situations that make us fearful but we need to learn how to approach these fears and move on with our life.
'Reflections from Berlin' - a course to be remembered.
I really love to see and witness CHANGE in people, from the new students learning to get to grips with the techniques and learning to control their stutter, to people who return to our courses and continue to grow and gain more confidence as they journey through the McGuire process. As the saying goes, ‘it doesn’t get any better than this’.
I've gather together a few comments from our members experience of the course in Berlin. This section is 'Reflections from Berlin' - a course to be remembered.
Brian Sellers' First Day & Public Speech videos from his first course at the McGuire Programme, an organisation run by stutterers, for stutterers - where stutterers help each other to speak with more confidence and eloquence.
These two videos were taken just three days apart. While his speech was much improved by the third day, the McGP's ongoing free support - and his continued hard work - have been instrumental in helping him to attain a level of control over his speech that he never thought possible.
The intro to this video also gives an example of Brian's speech now, and two years later. Brian is still work on his speech every single day, and is really excited about what the future holds.
QUOTE BRIAN SELLERS "The McGuire Programme has been truly life-changing for me, and I'll be happy to give anyone who is interested more information about it if they are interested. Thanks very much, and I hope you enjoy!"
