We are so lucky to be situated in central Europe, as we had many members and new students coming from all over the world; this time we had people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Georgia via the Czech Republic, Ireland, The Netherlands, Holand, Pakistan, Russia, Taiwan, Turkey, the UK and the USA. The course was truly an international mix that represents and reflects the McGuire Programme internationally. The McGuire techniques and methods work in any language – so don’t be afraid to join us in Germany! We have many members from Germany (true German natives) that are willing and able to assist you if you don’t understand something or need something translated. Joining us is also a great opportunity to put your English to the test and maybe even learn a few phrases from native English speakers! That’s how I’m learning German, from native German speakers.
During the 3-Days working on our speech and getting our stutters under control, we witnessed instant progression from all the graduates and from the new students. Through consistent hard-work, learning new techniques and developing and habituating newly learnt good speaking and communication habits.
From day one you could see that any tension, stress, anxiety or fear that was present on the Wednesday evening had disappeared from the new students. A new expression of ‘release’ was seen by all and all the old bad habits were gradually disappearing.
When we say it’s a 3-Day course, we also state that’s it’s 3-Days of intensive work on your speech; those 3-Days actually add up to roughly 42 Hours of working on your speech. Well over the average working week. And that’s excluding the hours outside the speech training room, where you are always with a McGuire coach and as we say “Every-time you speak is an opportunity to use technique.” and a coach is there to keep you on track 24/7.
We just completed our 3rd 3-Day Intensive Speech Course in Germany! If you stutter or know someone who stutters, please get in touch – our next course will be held in Düsseldorf 22.-25.06. #stammer #stutter #Stottern #mcguireprogramme #stammering #stutterers #pws #stottertherapie #control #soapbox #SpeechTherapy
We are truly the lucky ones as not many people get to witness peoples live changing in front of them! We get to see this transformation of people from out of control stutterers to disciplined, controlled confident people. The McGuire Programme really does change the lives of people who stutter and not just their lives but the lives of their families, friends, colleagues and beyond.
You might be wondering why I called this news report ‘Crazy Guitar Man Versus Stutterers in Frankfurt am Main!’. Well, during our public speaking session on the Saturday of the course we had a visitor. A local street entertainer, who decided to steal the spotlight from one of our coaches by entertaining the crowd with his acoustic rendition of god know what with vocal and spirited lyrics! We had the camcorder still running – here’s a few screen-grads for your enjoyment. The full video is available below – this might go viral (so watch this space).
But don’t let that turn you off joining us! If you know someone who stutters or if you are a person who stutters, please get in touch with us, we are here to help and we love to help. Please get in touch with your local regional director via phone, email, text message – whatever method you prefer but don’t wait! Life’s too short to wait for something to happen – do it now!

We have another two courses lined-up for 2016, the first of which is in June in Düsseldorf and the last but not least will be held in Berlin this coming October 2016. I hope you can join us and start to change your life for the better.
There is no dream that is too big to achieve.
