Vandana Grover is my name and I am a proud member of The Mcguire programme. I had been a covert stammerer for 40 years of my life. Juggling with word substitution and searching for synonyms for my feared words during each conversation undoubtedly made me adept at English vocabulary.
However, it also made my fears that much stronger. I remember dreaming often of situations where I could enjoy the experience of talking – situations where I would not substitute words or cough suddenly, or play some kind of trick just to get the feared word out.
Well, what can I say? Dreams do come true! While writing this, I am just over a year on my journey with McGuire Programme, but surely far happier, fulfilled and in control speech wise.
