Most people who stutter have had a stutter since an early age, whilst for others, it can be caused due to an external factor. I never had a stutter until the age of 15. It would always appear during the exam period, whilst I was preparing for the IGCSE exams (equivalent to the GCSE exams […]

I have stammered since I was a child, and have attended various speech therapy programmes over the years without success. I attended my first McGuire Programme course with a degree of scepticism. The programme is tough and requires discipline, however like all things worth having, you get out what you put in. There is no […]

Over the years I have seen four speech therapists, seen a hypnotherapist once a week for a year, meditation with yoga classes. Attended speech support groups […]

I attended my first course when I was 20 after stuttering for many years. My stutter would hold me back in social situations, at University and stop me from expressing my personality. I had always planned to attend a course at some point after hearing about the McGuire Programme, but in the summer of 2012 […]

I joined the course the summer before University in 2009. I remember throughout school I always tried and failed to hide my stammer with substitutions and filler words to make myself ‘more fluent.’ I think my brain had trained itself to oppress all negative speaking memories, therefore I’m struggling to find any worthy examples. The […]

It’s hard to put into words what I have gained from the McGuire Programme. You could say that I can now say what I WANT to say instead of what I think I CAN say. You could say that I now answer the phone rather than pretending that I can’t hear it. You could say […]
