Not everyone can relate to the physical struggle seen with a stutter but everyone can connect with raw emotion. The documentary in January did many things. It projected to millions how a person who stutters feels when they cannot say their own name or make a phone call in work. It revealed to stutterers what is possible through hard work and a little self-belief. Most importantly, it uncovered the “I’m the only person who stutters” myth and broke down that sense of isolation.

One of the first messages you are thought is that there is no cure for stuttering. I was initially quite despondent to hear this but as the days of the course rolled on, I saw example after example of people on the programme very comfortable in their own skin and excelling in life.  I thought there must be something to this.
