My name is George. I’m 45, a chemical engineer residing in Mexico. I began stuttering at age 8. I had therapy at ages 8 and 9 but it was no help. I tended to repeat words, block and sometimes jerk my head when I tried to force the words out. It has always been very situational with me.
I seem to stutter at work and when doing presentations and also when I’m on the phone. Other than that, I don’t stutter that much. Many people have never known that I stutter when pressured. Still, at the most important moments, I stuttered, and it has bothered me a great deal. At this point in my career, I am asked to make business presentations frequently, and I really need to find a way to beat it.
I found Lee’s book on Amazon and studied it. I loved it, and it helped a great deal. After I read it, I emailed Lee and we began Skyping. I have been giving myself two auto suggestions treatments daily for about five months now, and it has made a huge difference. It has taken me a long time to learn to use the Crutches, but I know them fairly well now. The good news is that I haven’t had any incident where I appeared to be disabled in 12 weeks now and I do believe that I now know how to avoid any stutter or block. This includes in my business presentations and on the phone. Still, I plan to keep Skyping with Lee for a while and will work on my public speaking. If you stutter, you should know that you can stop stuttering.
Lee’s book gives you all the weapons that you need and you should be able to get some Skype coaching from Lee or one of the other SAA coaches. I hope that you’ll do it.
