Thousands of people suffer from stammering. It can lead to bullying in childhood, underperformance at school and in adulthood it can hinder a career, impede social relationships and cause a lack of confidence. At last, there is a book that can bring real help to those who are affected by a problem that can destroy careers and relationships. The McGuire Programme started in 1994 and is now a world-wide organisation run by people who stammer to help other people who stammer. Dave McGuire founded the programme after feeling that his own life had been ruined by his severe stammering. It is a combination of physical techniques and mental strategies that deal with the fear of stamering as well as how to develop an assertive attitiue towards the problem. The approach provides a massive improvement for thousands of people who stammer, including Gareth Gates who joined the programme after his first 'Pop Idol' appearance. The McGuire Programme method is the first step for sufferers to gain control of their life and to start enjoying, rather than dreading, speaking. It can help you to reclaim your life and be the person that you want to be.
