Hi, my name is Dan and I have been on the McGuire Programme since 2012.

Before joining the programme I was very much a shy, quiet person who only spoke when I knew I would be saying words that I did not stutter on, the only issue was there were so many words and sounds that I did stutter on that I often just decided to keep quiet! I like most who have a stutter have been picked on in my younger days for this and have had some very uncomfortable, difficult times trying to come up with an “easier” word to say than the one that I actually want or need to say! 

Finally I thought to myself that I don’t want to do this anymore and this is the reason why I joined the course. At first, I was sceptical, to say the least, but after my first 4-day intensive course and seeing so many inspirational people, my mind soon changed.

I realised that using the unique tools and techniques the programme teaches you coupled with hard work, determination and a whole lot of courage, every word, sound and situation is something that I need not fear anymore! 10 years later and I’m still working very hard on my speech and through this hard work.

I completed the last year of university, landed my dream job, given myself the freedom to say and do what I want, when I want and have also made so many new friends for life along the way! For anyone thinking of seeing what the course is about, I strongly recommend that you do, after all, what have you got to lose?
