We held our second course for 2019 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands at the end of August with 3 new students joining our programme and 20 returning members, who came back to work on their own speech. No matter how many courses I attend, I’m still amazed at the transformation of people who stutter, who get to grips with their stuttering n such a short period of time. But it’s important to state here, that this is only the beginning of the process (a life-changing process) and that there is a lot of practice required, with dedicated time and effort required to maintain the gains achieved during the first course.
Four weeks ago, we held a very successful in-person course in Newry, Co. Down, Northern Ireland. 11 New Students attended the course as well as many returning members. Everyone involved rolled up…
Last month, we returned to Newry, Co. Down, Northern Ireland to hold our FIRST In-Person course in over 2 years. 11 New Students attended the course and they worked really hard over the 3 days. The parents of the under 18s also attended and they played an important and active part in this course in encouraging and helping the new students overcome their stutter. A great team effort!

This documentary follows four brave stutterers from different backgrounds, the youngest aged just 12 and the oldest 64, on a once-in-a-lifetime make-or-break journey to find their voice.
Over four confronting, intensive and emotionally-charged days, the four new students will be pushed to a breaking point.
Physical, psychological & emotional. The first day of the course, the physical day is always the hardest one. We are asking the new students to trust complete strangers as we are rewiring their speech completely.
We didn’t require lots of coaches, but we did have enough coaches to get a different voice and coaching style throughout the 3 intensive days. Having a small but lively and committed coaching team was essential to give our new student a sense of community and support. If we didn’t do this, it would only be the instructor who was teaching and coaching at the same time.
