Which therapies for stuttering are the most popular and beneficial? Is it possible to overcome a stammer/stutter? How long does it take to eradicate a stutter? Are there any specialist courses for stuttering that I can attend? Where can I find out more information about how to cure a stutter? These are questions that I am asked on a daily basis and ones which I will be answering in this article.
My name is Stephen Hill and I am a speech coach from the UK. I am a person who had a stutter for eighteen years before finally managing to achieve fluency at the age of 22. I have now enjoyed fluency for the last thirteen years.
The main form of therapy that I offer comes in the form of a specialised speech course for stuttering. These courses are on a one-to-one basis, this is something which I believe is essential due to the fact that each and every person has a different type of speech impediment and should therefore be treated as an individual rather than “herded” into a group format. The courses are held in Birmingham, England and are held over a two, three or five day period.
The most popular form of therapy that I offer; however; happens to be the seventy minute stuttering cure DVD. This film includes a lot of information including those all important techniques that I used to eradicate my own stutter.
People are also able to purchase an e-book and an audio book; all of these are what I call self-help stuttering treatment products.
Over the last few months I have introduced a couple of new stuttering therapy options; the first is fluency coaching over the telephone and the second is stuttering therapy via Skype. These are also starting to become quite popular.
The majority of the people who contact me; whether it be via e-mail, telephone or letter are from the United Kingdom however I do receive a lot of interest from the United States, India, Australia, Ireland, Pakistan, Norway and New Zealand. I have a blog at blog.stammering-stuttering.co.uk which has a map that shows people where the visitors to the site are located. This is something that is quite interesting to keep a track of from time to time.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
