How To Beat A Stammer
My name is Stephen Hill, I have overcome a stammer which had
affected my life for eighteen years. I now help as many other
people who stammer to achieve fluency as I can.
When I had a stammer, I would attend speech therapy, at which I
would be told to slow down or to take a deep breath before
talking. Other tips were to use costal breathing or to prolong
This did not seem to help me very much and after attending these
speech therapy lessons for eighteen years decided it probably
I firmly believed that my own stammer was very much a
physcological as well as a physical problem as at times I could
talk very well, like for example when I was talking to my
girlfriend or when I was talking when I was drunk.
I decided to read a lot of books about positive thinking for
example and at the same time started to study how good fluent
talkers were speaking compared to me. I was basically trying to
re-learn how to speak.
It was hard for me to truly believe I would ever be able to
achieve fluency as everyone had always told me that you can not
overcome a stammer.
After about a year though I managed to overcome the stammer and
then started to help other people to achieve fluency.
I have been helping people now for around eight years and have
people who stammer from many different countries and backgrounds.
