Speech Impediments

Stuttering is a type of speech disorder that interrupts the normal flow of speech. This means those with a stutter will know exactly what they want to say, but may find it difficult to get the words out. This can cause communication difficulties and may then lead to damaged self-esteem, low self-confidence and anxiety. Hypnotherapy helps you to manage stress and improve your body’s ability to relax.

Many people find their stutter gets worse when they are stressed, so when the worry about speaking is removed, the stammer eases up naturally.

“I went to see Annette after years of low self-esteem and a speech impediment. I needed help in social situations and fear of talking. Annette helped me to be more confident and embrace my speech impediment. After just a few sessions I felt less worried about meeting new people and speaking in large groups. Annette helped me in all aspects of controlling my breathing, anxieties and fears. I thoroughly recommend her!”
Richard, 37, Engineer

For some people, their stutter is triggered by something. It may be a situation, an environment or even a person. If this is the case for you, Hypnotherapy may be able to help you deal more effectively to your triggers. For example, instead of feeling anxious about a situation, hypnotherapy will enable you to create new, more positive reactions, so you feel confident and relaxed.

As a supplementary therapy, Hypnotherapy can be a helpful tool alongside other treatments such as speech therapy. I support clients who have already had help from an NHS or private speech and language therapist. More information can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/stammering/treatment/
