Individual sessions provide you with a confidential and supportive environment for your stuttering treatment. Our therapists work with you to create a tailored plan specific to your needs that will help you achieve the best outcome from treatment. No stutter is the same, which is why an individual approach can achieve the best results.
Our qualified team of specialist speech language therapists are all members of the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association (NZSTA), providing internationally accepted and effective therapy for clients.
Appointments (45-60 mins) are tailored to meet individual and family needs. We are available for appointments Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at our Parnell clinic or on a Tuesday and Wednesday in Albany. Please contact us on 09 379 6364 to make an appointment.
We know that sometimes it can be hard to get access to the right treatment that you need. We are proud to also offer appointments via video conferencing for those not living in Auckland or with travel difficulties. This is a great way to access our team of specialists and get some of the best treatment in the country, regardless of where you live.

Attending START has been of huge benefit to improving the quality of my daily life. The best thing for me personally was an improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem and for that alone I am grateful

We are so grateful to START for the information, treatment and support they offered us with Thomas’ stutter. At times it was really tough keeping on and on with the treatment especially when sometimes it was two steps forward and then one back. However, yesterday we sat and watched Thomas as the narrator in his school play and seeing him speak confidently and fluently in front of 300+ people made it completely worth it!!!

We came to START with mild trepidation that our four-year-old's mild stutter would become worse when he started school the following year. He was aware of it - it was deeply frustrating for him and really denting his confidence. We were eager to treat it before he went through this major life change. The therapy at START was fun, gentle and easy-to-follow, and both Axel and I enjoyed the weekly home exercises so much - he would ask me all morning when it would be time for us to do them together. The process was very organic and the results obvious from the early weeks of treatment. At the end of the 12 week program, Axel's stutter was completely gone, and has not re-emerged since he started school a few months ago. He is brimming with confidence and one of his favourite parts of school is giving morning news - addressing his whole class.
