The course was held in a beautiful hotel in de centre of Almere (in the middle of the Netherlands). We had 13 NS (8 coverts and 5 overts). They were accompanied by about 95 grads and coaches for almost 4 days to work hard to learn how to control their stammers and deal with the part under the big iceberg.

DEMOGRAPHICS:
We had 4 nationalities represented in Almere: Dutch, Belgium, English and Norwegian.

There where 3 female and 10 male NS. All of them completed the course.

WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY:

I am for the McGuire Programme cases after a few phone calls with a coach within the program. What struck me was their drive and sobriety. I was also very taken with the idea that the only just been set up by stotterraars and therefore floats on their own experiences.

What do you do when you're feeling completely useless and alone?

It doesn't matter what you do for a living, how many friends you have or how "successful" you may appear to be. We all feel disconnected from time to time. And if we listen to and believe the voice in our head, we can quickly spiral down into loneliness and darkness.                   

McGuire course November 2014 Eindhoven

For me McGuire started in my hometown Eindhoven. So it was very special to do my first course as an instructor (intern) in Eindhoven. I hope that in a few years’ time the new students (NS) on this course will also remember Eindhoven as ‘a magical place’… We had 20 NS ranging form completely overt – or: completely NON covert ;-) – to completely covert. This wide spectrum made it a challenging course for me and my ‘mentors’ Dennis Tieke (CI) and Frank Loomans (RD). Gladfully, we had around 75 grads/coaches backing us in the lines. Aaand they did their jobs properly!
