Stammering therapy evening courses – freedom to speak

We offer a range of Stage 1 and Stage 2 evening speech therapy courses for  adults who stammer.

Stage 1 courses are for those who are new to our approach and Stage 2 are for those who have done a course with us previously or who have done therapy elsewhere. We offer an evening programme specifically for those with interiorised or covert stammering.

Stage 2 courses include programmes to develop the work you have already done on your speech and the psychological aspects of stammering as well as courses with a specific focus e.g. effective communication in the workplace, public speaking and mindfulness.
