Meets on the first Monday of each month from 8pm to 9.30pm at Chesterton Medical Centre, Union Lane, Cambridge, CB4 1PT.
There is a free car park on site. The room has kindly been arranged by Speech and Language Therapists of the Cambs PCT and there will be also be participation in the meetings by speech therapists of the PCT.
A bit of info about the meetings. We generally chat about our recent experiences and feelings but primarily we are there to support one another and where possible to pass on any knowledge or advice from our many years of experience (!) - not only the overt symptoms of stammering (the lack of fluency) but also the covert side which involves everything from embarrassment to a lack of confidence in our social or professional lives. I also try to theme each meeting with a different person within the group or an invited guest giving a presentation on a different topic associated with stammering, any courses they have recently attended, or any aids which can benefit people who stammer.
The main aims of the group are therefore as follows:
To provide support to fellow stammerers.
To provide an opportunity for people who stammer to meet and talk socially.
To provide a non-judgemental environment where one is allowed to stammer freely.
To provide an opportunity to practice speech techniques of one's choice.
To provide opportunities for individuals to reflect on their past month in terms of speech and associated feelings.
And last, but not least, to have fun!
