Stammering therapy evening courses – freedom to speak

Stammering Therapy (Evening Courses)

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

Stage 1 courses are for those who are new to our approach. Stage 2 courses 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.

Many of our courses are delivered online. For more information about our live online courses, please see our guide to online learning.
