The Programme gave me immense courage and confidence to combat my stammer in my daily life. 

I had been a covert stammerer all my life but since taking the McGuire Programme, I have seen an amazing transformation in my speech and mindset!

My name is Rishabh and I am a covert stammerer. [Covert means that I could hide my stammer from others but not from myself]

For many years, I had my own feared situations and words. I always restricted myself. Making phone calls and introducing myself to strangers was terrible! 

Making phone calls and introducing to strangers was terrible!

Being a covert stammerer, I always used various tricks and avoidance mechanisms to hide my stutter. I remember my biggest nightmare was the engineering vivas, every trick or every attempt in saying a word lead to major blocks and I would not speak a word in the vivas because of the panic and stress.

The feeling of self-hate and shame troubled me all day. I had tried a few speech therapies, but the results were short term. I hated going to social events and talking with people. Very few of my friends knew I stammered because I used all sorts of tricks. 

Life was not easy. But, after enrolling and being a part of the McGuire Programme something clicked inside me. The Programme gave me immense courage and confidence to combat my stammer in my daily life.

I am certainly not cured and I am still working on my speech, but now I have the control that I always sought. The McGuire Programme has made my life much easier and more manageable than it used to be. Now, I enjoy speaking and I keep expanding my comfort zones. It is like a full transformation in just 4 days! 

Never give up. Cheers everyone!
