Stuttering treatment (Dysfluency) (stuttering and stammering)
at the Huddersfield and Manchester Hypnotherapy Clinic

Stuttering and stammering (also sometimes referred to as dysfluency) is a symptom of social phobia (social anxiety) and is four times more common in males than females. It is thought that around 25% of all children at some point will go through a stage of development where they stutter. As children get older the prevalence drops to about 1% in primary and secondary schools and to about 0.1% for adults.

Stuttering is a behaviour that usually involves repeating sounds, syllables or words, prolonging some sounds, vocal hesitation and avoidance or substitution of some words. In some people secondary effects occur, such as an exaggerated facial and bodily movements due to excessive tension in the muscles of the body. In some situations, the person who stutters may find that he or she is temporarily relieved of his or her symptoms and in other situations they may return.

Stuttering in children

I offer a special techinique known as the 'Blowaway Technique' which is a safe method specifically designed to assist alleviating symtoms such as stuttering in Children. Please following this link for more information on hypnotherapy for children.

Stuttering in adulthood

Stuttering in adulthood (and indeed in childhood) can lead to a great deal of suffering as it can be accompanied by feelings of embarrassment and increased levels of frustration and anxiety. This may lead the sufferer to avoid public speaking, or indeed any public situation. At worst it may lead to a withdrawal from life in general. People who stutter may choose a career in which they feel their vocal uniqueness may not be noticed. In doing so have already restricted their potential to flourish in ways that they may have had they not had this impediment.
