I run three and five day stammering courses which are on a one to one basis. They are held in Birmingham, England.
The three day course fee is £285 and the five day stammering course fee is £450.
I welcome you to watch the video below where I describe more information about these courses. I have included the transcript below the video for those people that would prefer to read about them.
Hello! For this video, I’m going to be describing and talking about the one-to-one stammering courses. They are held in Birmingham in England and I run them from the comfort of my own home.
The original idea as to running and developing these courses came about after I had successfully managed to overcome my own stammer, when I was aged twenty two, and you can read more about how I went about doing that and also about the type of stammer that I had on some of the other pages of this website. For the purposes of this film, I’m going to be purely focusing on the stammering courses.
There are two types of course, duration-wise, there is a three day course and there is a five day course. The three day course is for people who have previously purchased one of my self-help products, such as the DVD, the e-book, or the audiobook, and who will have therefore gained access to what I call “the backbone of the courses” via those self-help products and are therefore able to attend a shorter course.
I believe it takes a lot of bottle (courage) for somebody to attend a course. They’re going into the kind of unknown, not really sure what to expect, even though they may have spoken to me on the phone, asked questions about the course, or they may have contacted me via email, it’s still a little bit like going into the unknown. It can be, for some people, quite a daunting task to even think about attending.
For that reason, on the first day, I normally do the majority of the talking, starting by talking a little bit about myself, about the type of stammer that I had, how it impacted on my life etc. I talk about some of the techniques of “how to stop stammering” and again, on that first day, obviously try to make the course attendee as welcome as possible. As the course moves on to the second, third, fourth, fifth days, the course attendee would usually be gaining confidence and would become a lot more involved in the course, practicing the techniques that I have taught, and asking any questions they have. I am still doing a lot of talking as well however they are a lot more involved.
At the end of the course, that is not the end of things. People do not go home to be left to their own devices, not at all. I encourage and welcome people to stay in contact with me, not just so that I can help them with their speech, but because I want them—I know this probably sounds a little bit corny—but I want these people to become long-term friends, as such.
To achieve fluency is a huge, huge thing. It makes a massive difference to people’s lives. When people achieve fluency, they are obviously extremely happy, but I am also extremely happy and we’ve been on that journey together. Once the course attendee manages to achieve that success and that successful conclusion, I don’t just want that to be it, I want to hear about their future successes as well. Again, this is why I encourage people to keep in touch, plus the fact that I now love to talk, because I now can talk.
If you have any questions about anything I’ve said here or about the course or if you want to book onto the course, please feel free to contact me. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and the telephone number is 07967 549 070.
Thank you and I look forward to helping you with your speech and helping you to achieve fluency. Thank you.
The course fee for the five day stammering course is £450 and the three day course fee is £285.
