From a young boy aged approximately 5, I developed a stutter, initially, there was no issue but as time progressed going to Senior school having to read & other speaking situations was a huge problem. Then leaving school to the working environment the added pressure was immense. I found every excuse not to make phone […]

I joined the Programme after a chance meeting with a colleague who’d heard good things about The McGuire Programme. I’d lived with my stammer for 38 or so years and had accepted it so far as I could, I had nothing to lose and as it was to turn out everything to gain. Since joining […]

My life before the McGuire Programme was really hard. I wouldn’t put my hand up in lessons, I’d avoid talking in front of the whole class when doing presentations in front of the class and when I thought I’d ever have to do one I’d panic and ask other people to speak instead of me, […]

I joined the McGuire Programme in August 2015. Before the course, I was a very overt stammerer – I would push through any tension that I felt when speaking, resulting in very obvious blocks and physical tricks in my attempt to get the words out. This was affecting all aspects of my life – with […]

The McGuire Programme has enabled me to gain control over my speech I never thought I would achieve.  I’ve stammered severely since the age of 4, and previous therapies were never sustainable. I then found this programme in 2012, and everything began to change.  I no longer have to be afraid of speaking situations, and […]

When I was 6 years old I began stuttering and failed to articulate and vocalize certain sounds properly which extended into tricks and filler words to connect my sentences. I stumbled my way through social situations and university because I was riddled with fear that every time I went to class, I would be asked […]

I remember being totally overwhelmed on the first day of my first course. I didn’t know what to expect. I had been told that this will help me, then again I had been told that speech therapy would help me, and it hadn’t, so I really wasn’t sure. My stammer whilst always being a part […]

Joining The McGuire Programme is, without doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made.  The improvement in my speech in such a short space of time is quite frankly, unbelievable. I never thought I would have this level of control, or this level of confidence, which has allowed me to take on public […]

I joined the McGuire Programme at the age of 22, shortly after completing my undergraduate degree. I have stuttered for as long as I can remember and, although it had bothered me and affected my speech to a great degree, I had generally avoided confronting it at all costs. I avoided words, sounds and situations; when […]

The moment before I was about to enter a speaking situation was so terrifying for me, sweaty palms, dry mouth and that horrible sick feeling in the pit of my stomach! You will only understand this if you stammer. So many people don’t even think about talking to someone (even someone they love and feel comfortable […]
