E.C.T Therapy For stammering

Are you feeling held back by your stammer?

You are a talented person, with a lot to offer. You want to be able to say and do what you want, but you feel like your stammer holds you back.

This may apply to very specific scenarios, such as meetings where you dread having to introduce yourself. Or it may affect various areas of your life, from everyday situations like not choosing the item you want from a menu, to issues like not progressing further in your career, despite having all the necessary skills and experience.

Most people are unaware of how strongly your stammer affects you.

But there is a way to move forward.

Trying to find a solution

This could be the first time you’ve considered getting support. You’ve worked really hard to find ways to avoid stammering. You may be quite successful at keeping your stammer hidden. But this avoidance takes a lot of effort and can feel like it’s imprisoning you. Or maybe you’ve sought some help before, in the hope of finding a solution:

perhaps you tried your local NHS service but didn’t see a stammering specialist or were only able to have a limited number of sessions you may have attended group therapy but found there weren’t enough opportunities to receive one-to-one guidance or you might have tried things like hypnotherapy, self-help DVDs or internet “cures” but they turned out to be little or no help. Whatever you’ve tried, it’s likely you’ve felt disappointed. And despite your best efforts, you still feel held back by your stammer. Drawbacks of “going it alone” or a “one size fits all” approach Trying to manage without support can be incredibly hard, especially when you have a new challenge to face, such as a change at work, which suddenly requires you to move out of your comfort zone. Strategies that seemed to work for you before can start to fail and you’re left feeling unsure of what to do next.

A problem with many treatments for stammering is the underlying “one size fits all” approach, when the reality is that no single treatment works for everyone. You and your stammer are unique. So therapy needs to reflect this, in order to find the best way forward. Specialist speech therapy tailored to your individual needs Instead of struggling to cope alone or feeling constricted by an “off-the-shelf” treatment, imagine having speech therapy that’s tailor-made to suit you. A specialist speech therapist can work in partnership with you to support you to find ways to manage your stammer that are more effective and sustainable.

During the procedure, electrodes consisting of small metal discs with thin wires are pasted on the scalp. The electrodes detect tiny electrical charges that result from the activity of the brain cells. The charges are amplified and appear as a graph on a computer screen or as a recording that may be printed out on paper. Your doctor then interprets the reading. Related procedures that may be performed are evoked potential studies. These studies are used to measure electrical activity in the brain in response to stimulation of sight, sound, or touch.
