After managing to overcome my own stutter at the age of twenty-two I decided, a couple of years later, to set up what was then called “The How To Stop Stuttering Centre” which I have since simplified to the “Stuttering Therapy Centre”. This was way back in 1998 and in truth I did not have a clue as to whether this was a service that would be of interest to people.
What I did know was just how much of a damaging effect my own speech impediment had had on my life and about how amazing it now was to be able to speak “stutter-free”. The courses that I was about to make available for people to attend were exactly what I had been looking for when I had the speech impediment.
If somebody had said to me that I would still be running the courses in 2012 I would have probably laughed at them due to the fact that I would not have believed them. But here we are and yes I am still offering the courses and I am proud to write that the course fee for both the three day and the five day course is still the same price today as it was in 1998.
Over the years I have introduced a number of alternative options to the full course. These are self-help products where people are able to gain access to the techniques (the speech rules) without having to attend a course in person. Even though I call these products “self-help” that does not mean that the people who purchase them are on their own as it were .
I am here to offer any support that I can and to answer any questions which may arise. I have met many wonderful people over the years and I have loved every minute of the journey thus far.
People have travelled from many different countries to attend the course including Australia, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, South Africa, United States of America, Sri Lanka, Denmark and even Saudi Arabia.
I also have a personal branding website which includes information about other sites that I own.
