The courses are long hours, hard work and run over 7 days but if people really want to learn how to control the stammer then this works. You need to learn a new breathing technique to give yourself smooth air flow and to deal with any tension in your articulators and vocal chords we also look at how we feel about are stammer and how we can reduce the fear associated with stammering.
Areas we cover are one to one speaking, speaking in groups, public speaking, reading, speaking on the phone and letting go and having fun speaking. Anyone with a stammer no matter how mild or severe can do well with the physical and psychological techniques we teach.
Here is some important general information once again to for you: Our programme is run by people who stammered for stammerers so this helps as we know how it feels to stammer and how to gain control of all the words, sounds and speaking situations. Each course lasts 7 days (Monday 9am – Sunday 4pm).
Everyone first course is a residential course so you would need to stay in the hotel for the 7 nights so you can focus totally on the course which will enable you to learn all the techniques we teach so to control all those difficult words and sounds as well as learn how to reduce the fear of speaking in any situation. Any future course do not need to be residential and you don’t have to attend future courses for the whole of the 7 days, its just your first course which is so very important. Most people stay in the hotel. Its important to give this your best shot and follow the directions as this is what helps so much and makes the difference.
For those who cannot attend regular courses, we also organize one –to-one courses in various languages: French and Spanish.
