WHY CHOOSE THE McGUIRE PROGRAMME?

The McGuire Programme takes a holistic approach that treats stuttering not so much as a problem with speech, but more an issue with our experience of communication and how we relate to people and the world around us. We see it as an issue of fear and anxiety, and old patterns and triggers from the past. Changes to those patterns takes time hence the emphasis on ongoing coaching and support.

The technique includes a number of strategies or ‘weapons’ to physically overcome the speech blocks and challenging words. It also teaches an understanding of the physiology and emotional aspects of stuttering and encourages self-acceptance as a person who stutters that is working hard to become an effective communicator.

WORLDWIDE INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME

Our programme is run by people who stutter, for people who stutter. We are not speech therapists. Our qualification is that we have overcome, or are overcoming, the limitations of living with our own stutter. We understand what it takes to move beyond a life time of stuttering, and the many tricks and avoidances associated with stuttering; the physical struggle to get the words out, and the unpleasant thoughts relived each time we go to speak.

  • International focus – our members (aka graduates) come from across the globe

  • Residential courses – we run our courses residentially in city centre hotels.

  • Personal Coaching – every new student gets their own personal coach as part of the package.

You can practice with us at any time with our international coaching list available to all members as part of your intensive 6 Week Action Plan after your 1st course.

OUR VALUES

To help you overcome the fear of speaking through concentration, assertiveness and non-avoidance techniques. By addressing the mechanisms of relapse and how to respond should it occur, as well as running workshops to challenge and change the lifelong negative traits associated with stuttering.

The changes to thinking and behaviours required to overcome stuttering do not happen overnight, so an extensive network of coaching and support across the world is included in the membership. Through this experience, our coaches and graduates become empowered by helping others, in addition to aiding their own speech progress.

To teach a technique to deal with, and overcome, the effects of stuttering. We know it works, because we use it ourselves. We are realistic and we understand that overcoming lifelong habits of stuttering does not occur overnight.

Overcoming a lifetime of stuttering, and the emotional baggage that has accumulated over the years, is tough. We understand the effort required and lend support throughout our courses and beyond. You will not be asked to do anything that we feel you’re not ready for, and the final decision whether to participate in a speaking assignment is always yours.

For so many past graduates of the Programme, the positive energy generated on our courses has filtered into other areas of their lives. Once you start achieving your speaking goals, there will be no stopping you!

Your unlimited membership begins with a 3-day intensive course which takes you out of the swamp of tricks and avoidances. From here you begin your journey towards eloquence and free expression. This may be a longer journey for some than it is for others, and that’s okay. Everybody is different and our courses are structured so that each person’s individual needs are met.

If you’re looking for that magic pill to “cure” you from stuttering, than this programme is not for you!

But if you’re prepared to apply yourself, to be courageous and to work hard, participation in this programme has the potential to change your life forever, both professionally and personally.
