My name is Steve Hill from Torquay in England, and I welcome you to my website. I hope you enjoy reading through the content; if at any time you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
I am a person that has successfully managed to overcome a stammer that had negatively impacted on my life for eighteen years. I now help other people to also achieve fluency via a number of different stammering treatments. These include a one-to-one course and a self-help DVD.
The stammer that I had started when I was four years of age, and it continued until the age of twenty-two. I have an older brother and a sister, a mom and dad, and at the time when I was aged four, grandparents, all of which were fluent. All of these people had never had a stammer.
For me, it was rather unfortunate; therefore, that I had a stammer. I felt rather alone, somewhat frustrated that I had this speech impediment, it was frustrating for my parents as well and all in all, it was just something that I hated having, and it caused an enormous amount of problems throughout those eighteen years.
I did attend therapies for stammering; however, the speech therapist’s attitude was never to attempt to cure the stammer, it was never trying to help me to achieve fluency, and this was what I needed, this was what I desired. I wanted a solution; I wanted to find a cure for stammering.
When people said to me, “Well, Steve, you have a stammer, you need to accept the fact that you have a stammer and the fact that you’ll have it for the rest of your life,” this was just not acceptable, this was not something that I was ever going to accept.
At the age of twenty-two, I had had enough; I needed and wanted to find a way, somehow, to achieve fluency. I knew it would be hard, I didn’t honestly believe I’d ever get there, to ever achieve my goal; however, I knew I had to try at least, and that is what I did. It took a long time, it certainly felt like a long time, about eleven months, but eventually, I managed to overcome the stammer.

I now help other people to also achieve fluency and I do that via one-to-one stammering courses which are held over either a three or five-day period. I also have a number of self-help stammering therapy products, including a DVD, an e-book, and an audiobook available.
