Stuttering therapy

The course of the therapy

1. Registration and diagnostics

After your non-binding registration via our website, you will be invited to a diagnostic appointment at our therapy center.

The symptoms and the criteria to be fulfilled, which must be fulfilled in order to carry out this form of intensive therapy, can only be recorded on site. There will be an anamnesis interview, the necessary diagnostics, consultation and further therapy planning.

2. Intensive therapy

The aim of intensive therapy is to learn a new way of speaking in order to replace speech patterns that are incorrectly anchored in the brain.
This new way of speaking finds its way into the subconscious, so that it is not a question of a superimposed speech technique, but of a natural way of speaking that leads to free speech. The way of speaking is therefore only a bridge from stuttering to "normal" speech.

3. The time after the therapy

The guidance and intensive counselling of the caregiver is intended to ensure that the new way of speaking finds its way into everyday life. The caregiver will ensure that the person concerned experiences a platform in recognition, respect and support everywhere (school, sports club, university, workplace ...) so that the new way of speaking can be integrated and automated everywhere.

4. Talking free

The free speech develops from the ever flatter becoming way of speaking. This process takes place unconsciously and individually. The goal is achieved in different periods of time.

Examples can be found at
Information films and parent statements

The affected learn a new way of speaking, by which the movements in the mimic and physical area are no longer present. The blockades are prevented by the unblocking impulse and the nasal vibration accent. The reorganization of speech leads into the subconscious and is automated to an own speech.

Through the integration of the temporary way of speaking in all situations, a systematic dismantling of the deblocking measures takes place and with it a dismantling of the psychosocial stress factors. Thus the way of speaking flattens out a few months after the intensive phase and leads in an individual time frame to symptom-free speaking, for which no more speaking technique has to be used. At the same time, speech fears are systematically reduced and the stress level, which is too high for stutterers, decreases constantly, increasing self-confidence and self-confidence.

The unblocking impulses are a bridge from stuttering to "normal" speech, provided that all the necessary exercises and everyday integrations are carried out with the support of the guided caregivers.

Relaxation therapy with
progressive muscle relaxation

Stress, psychological strain, worries and fears often lead to an increased tension of individual or even all muscles in the body without us noticing it. Biologically this has the purpose to prepare the body for action and is not a short-term problem. However, if such states persist for a longer period of time or recur repeatedly, they can cause exhaustion and pain. The increased tension during high breathing, mimic and physical movements during the blockades is progressively fixed as tension.


The aim of the PME is to achieve a deep relaxation of the entire musculature. With this procedure, a conscious tension of muscle parts is to follow a clearly perceived relaxation. In this exercise, the individual muscle groups are specifically tensioned under guidance, the tension is "held" briefly, in order to then consciously "let go" the muscle and relax it. The aim here is to improve the perception of the different states of the muscle. The "body perception" is clearly improved. With a continuous continuation of the exercises at home, an automation takes place in the process of perception for tension and rapid release. This is an important prerequisite for speech situations with perceived stress.

Voice exercises

The voice exercises according to Svend Smith were modified by Sabine Schütz and adapted to the speech stages. Here the approach of the accent method is taken into account, which was already used 50 years ago with people who stutter. The vocal exercises are intended to relax the organs of articulation and improve their coordination.

There are three tempos in which words and sentences of ascending length are spoken in the new way of speaking. The exercises are accompanied by Sabine Schütz on the drum, as per the concept of the accent method.
