It's well known that stuttering can have a negative impact on one's life, particularly with regards to self-esteem. But with the wide range of treatment, techniques, and support available today we can work with you to help you reduce the impact of your stutter and live a confident life. 

START is proud to have developed the Pilot Mentoring Programme in conjunction with Wendy Baker from the New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre (NZCMC) - a world first in the treatment for stuttering.

Mentoring is a supportive learning relationship which supports an individual to reflect and learn from their experiences. We've seen great success with the programme, where clients have expressed increased confidence, less anxiety, becoming more open about stuttering and in some cases a changed perspective of stuttering.

Developed in 2014 the programme matches a current client with a mentor. START mentors are past clients who come from a variety of professional backgrounds. Mentors are given professional development on coaching and meet regularly with their mentee.
