While growing up, I would often get in trouble for negative behavior in school; behavior that I would use to deflect attention from my stutter. At first I was the bully; my thinking being, if people were afraid of me, they would not laugh at me.

Later, I became a class clown; this time thinking if they laugh with me, at least they would not be laughing at me.

Later in life, the personal and professional aspects of my life became affected.

I am happy to say that I am now past the slippery slope and well on my way to eloquence.

Prior to The McGuire Programme, I attended numerous speech therapy courses for a period of over 15 years, but only the McGP helped me to break through.

The program provided me with a holistic way to retrain my thinking around speaking. It has allowed me to dream again to accomplish each one of my Big Hairy Audacious goals.

I have stuttered since I was about 5 years old. Back then and pretty much until I started on the McGuire program, stuttering was connected to a tremendous deal of confusion, anxiety, shame, and just generally the opposite of well-being. I don't think a lot of people around me even knew that I stuttered, or even less what it meant to me to stutter.

I am referring to the typical response I had to deal with for all of my childhood when I spoke in class or around other students.  I was plagued by a debilitating stutter. Most of the time I dealt with it by being the quiet kid in class, and I was almost held back a grade because “quiet” was confused with “slow learner”.
