Now revised and updated, the McGuire Programme is an internationally recognized method that not only improves speech, but offers the enjoyment ,not the dread, of speaking. A series of breathing and diaphragm exercises that breaks the self-perpetuating cycle of stuttering.
Uniquely, the McGuire Programme combines physical techniques (breathing and relaxation) with mental strategies for dealing with the fear of stuttering, as well as how to develop an assertive attitude to the problem.
A childhood stutter made Dave McGuire feel like an outcast, he dropped out of university and needed help. He found a doctor in California who taught him about the 'cycle of panic' stutterers go through and developed a method of controlling his stutter. Several years later in Holland, Dave met an opera singer who taught him breathing techniques - he combined the two techniques and the McGuire Programme was born, providing a cure for all sufferers of stuttering.
