The McGuire Programme
The The Mercure Bournemouth is proud to welcome back The
McGuire Program for one of their many training weekends.
The McGuire Programme delivers practical training devised and developed to promote recovery from stuttering. Throughout the world, thousands of people who stammer or stutter have benefited from the McGuire Programme and its unique, positive approach. Their intensive courses are the entry point into an ongoing Programme of consistent, continuous follow-up activity designed to support long-term recovery. By encouraging eloquent speech and personal development, we aim to go beyond stammering.
All the Coaches on the McGuire Programme are experienced graduates, they have undergone a Coach training course, passed an examination and scored well in a peer evaluation. Many take positions of leadership running support groups, organising courses, and arranging Open Days and information sessions. All Coaches provide support and guidance to other graduates, both face-to-face and via the telephone.
One of the many people across the world that have benefited from this programme is Gareth Gates; who as you will remember came second in 2002 final of Pop Idol. Gareth had battled a severe stammer for most of his childhood, so he took part in the intensive course and hasn’t looked back since. The stammer does occasionally resurface but he has the skills to control it and now works alongside The McGuire Programme as a Course Instructor to help others.
