‘The concept of automatic pilot is very relevant to people who stammer, as stammering and speaking in general is something that we tend to do whilst in automatic pilot mode. Becoming more non-judgementally aware of our automatic patterns leads the way to us being able to make more conscious choices about changing them, e.g. applying techniques or not avoiding.’

The above quote is taken from an account written by an attendee at a mindfulness meditation course for stammering/stuttering run by Carolyn Cheasman at City Lit in London. You can read it in its entirety on The British Stammering Association website.
