There is powerful evidence that to extinguish your fears, you have to experience them again. It can be tempting to simply avoid the fear trigger, but that could just make the problem bigger. Although this avoidance might help reduce feelings of fear in the short-term, over the long-term it can make the fear become even worse. So face your fears. You'll be glad you did.

Another successful course for people who stutter in Watford, UK
McGuire Region: UK
Number of New Students: 8
Another really successful course was held in the new venue in Watford. A new venue is always a challenge, and this was no different. The hotel was separate from the conference room but worked perfectly and the Corona Virus was on people’s minds. Precautions were taken with chairs being further apart from usual and hygiene being an even bigger factor than usual. Handshaking was replaced by exit drills and people has to wash their hands during every break.
