I will help you fast with Hypnotherapy (AHA) for stuttering. You may even get health fund rebates.
Stuttering has a complex kaleidoscope or causes. As a clinical psychotherapist and mental health professional (PACFA) I look at the psychological changes you need to make.
Also, as a clinical naturopath (ANPA) I help you optimise your physical advantages for fluent speech production.
You may have seen several therapists, sometimes at the same time, over the years yet you still have you stammer and feel hopeless.
When I was young I trained in dance, singing and had an acting coaching. My accent was changed for theater, so breath control and vocal products were a large part of my everyday life.
As a public speaker, presenter, teacher and therapist they still are today.
What causes stuttering?
Speech production begins in the brain not the vocal cords and mouth. Depending on the sounds you are producing it is routed through different parts of the brain to a different degree.
When you stutter your brain is misfiring. The neurological signals between different parts of your brain get confused so the fluent production of speech is interrupted.
We know this because many people who stutter can sing without stuttering. This tells us the brain is working differently at that time. The signals have been modified.
Until your brain learns how to reroute and reprogram your production of sounds you will continue to stutter.
Speech production becomes automatic.
The perfect example is people who are multi-lingual. When I speak English I think in English, but when I speak French I think in French. The way I think automatically changes. I don’t translate.
The same happens for singers who sing opera and then sing Jazz. They have two different voices and two different ways of creating sound. Each with practice becomes automatic.
The opposite is that people who have developed stutters have learned automatic dysfunctional ways of producing sound.
So your brains way of thinking and acting out of sound needs to be relearnt and become automatic.
Multiple practitioners confuse people who stutter
When people come into my office, they have often been given antidepressants and antianxiety medication. This only damages your brain’s potential to work.
You may have been seeing different speech therapists who taught you different techniques.
You could have been seeing a psychologist at the same time.
Ending up running for one to the other. This is too much running around that makes you even more anxious.
Integrated approach to sound production
The way I work with you and the hypnosis we use brings all the element you need to produce the clear fluent speech you need.
I want to make it easier for you. We work on the physical, biofunction, psychological and voice production all in one place at the same time.
Let’s make it simple and easy for you to manage.
This saves you time and money giving you more energy to focus of producing fluent speech.
Why hypnotherapy works for stuttering
As a hypnotist I am helping you reroute the neural networks and language within your brain. A new automatic production of sound.
With hypnotherapy, which is very comfortable, we re-coordinate the firing in the different parts of your brain that contribute towards producing speech. The sequences and intensity of neurons become modulated.
Therefor speaking fluently becomes your new continuous language.
If you can learn to ride a bike I can help you learn to speak fluently. With hypnosis it’s that simple.
