Barry Guitar on Mindfulness and Stuttering

I came across a brief presentation by well-known specialist Barry Guitar (who I believe is himself a person who stutters) on mindfulness and stuttering. It ends with some personal reflections, which I thought were helpful:

  • Mindfulness meditation is best as a daily practice.
  • Meditation provides an experience of feeling time slow down. [It] enhances a sense of calmness.
  • [A mindful approach to stuttering can mean that you welcome opportunities] to stutter so that you can observe it and work with feelings and behaviours associated with it.
