Stammering, also referred to as Stuttering, is a speech disorder characterized by the repetition of sounds, syllables, or words; prolongation of sounds; and interruptions in speech. These speech disruptions may be accompanied by struggle behaviors, such as rapid eye blinks or involuntary tremor of the lips. Stress often makes it worse resulting in low self-esteem and high anxiety both in personal and professional lives.
Stammering is quite common in children and can continue in adulthood affecting everyone differently. It could occur due to several reasons like head injury, a stroke, neurological condition, trauma, and times of intense stress. Stammering may emerge only at times of high stress, only to be followed by periods of speaking fluidly. All of this can lead to you changing your behavior and withdrawing from social interactions.
Whether your stammering is severe or mild, hypnotherapy can actually improve the fluency of your speech. The therapist can also help you develop strategies to cope better with your routine triggers like common social situations.
