If you are a stammerer and are looking for great control over your stammer then McGuire Programme is what you are looking for.
Yes, it is not a cure but it is a wonderful “lifetime programme”.
The book “Beyond Stuttering” serves as a guide to the graduates of the course but to apply those things in the real world, one needs a transformation in the mentality that most stammers have.
The McGuire Programme does not only teach me to control my stammering, it transforms my mentality as well. Most disciplined McGuire members are today better speakers than fluent people. They also make you do public speaking. In other words, a stammerer is made to live the wildest of his/her dreams through the course and after it (as they have a wonderful support group). I have now found what I call freedom and liberty in life in all speaking situations.

When I joined my first company a few m months ago, we had the induction process in which I had to introduce myself 50–60 times in the first week. I failed each time I tried to say my name. Moreover, I was made fun of on some occasions after that. I wish they could fathom the embarrassment they were causing me. Maybe they did but they drew pleasure from that. Now I go and introduce myself to the very same people without surrendering to the vicious cycle of stammering. I have even travelled more than 300 KMs to attend table topics in toastmasters and won the best TT speaker. I am not bragging about my toastmaster’s achievement nor am I being complacent because this is only the beginning of many things to come. I have to go a long way now. But meanwhile, I am also enjoying my new improved speech.
In my opinion being a part of McGuire Programme is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Speaking is my Superpower.
