I was amazed at the results and felt like a new person.

My name is Maria McGrath. My earliest memory of stuttering was at school when I was approximately 5 years old.

My earliest memory of stuttering was when I was about age 6, standing in front of the class struggling to say something and all the grown-up kids were laughing at me. 

My stutter held me back in so many ways, it dictated who I spoke to, what I said and the career path I choose. As a junior golfer, I lost tournaments for fear of having to make a victory speech. 

The list of choices I made because of my stutter goes on and on but I struggled through life as best I could. I was lucky to have family members, school friends and college friends who spoke for me.

I attended speech therapy as a child and then many intensive courses as an adult. Having been let down by many other therapies I attended my first McGuire Programme with a lot of scepticism.

I was amazed at the results and felt like a new person.

I worked hard but then got lazy and relapsed. The beauty of the program is that you have lifelong membership so I came back to another course and worked hard and this time I took full advantage of the support network.

The holistic approach, support network and the fact that everybody involved in the program has stuttered make this approach unique.
