Stuttering happens in public speaking when we try to squeeze out words faster than our mouth can cope with. The reason we speed up when we are public speaking is that we are under pressure with a lot of adrenaline coursing through our bodies. Our bodily functioning goes into the fight or flight mechanism as biologically we are getting ready to run away from predators. Our bodies tell us that we should run, but at the same time we know we’re supposed to stand there and speak.


It’s a very odd sensation that we are ready to flee but still find ourselves standing in the same spot ready to give a presentation. And that leads to the over-adrenalized mouth twisting itself into knots.

The Pressure to Rush


It might feel like you need to rush your words because that is what your body is telling you to do. If you’re also feeling self conscious, you may be eager to ‘get through it and get off’.


Pause for a moment and think. There was a reason why you’ve been asked to speak. Isn’t it better for everyone if you get your point across in a considered and powerful manner?


If you think about your audience you’ll realize that your audiences are NOT in a hyper aware state of adrenaline powered intensity. They are seated in (sometimes) comfy chairs, settled in to be taught something amazing.  If you speak to the speed of your adrenaline your audience simply will not understand.

The Pressure to Stop Stuttering!


As if the adrenaline didn’t cause enough trouble, we then load on extra pressure by judging our stuttering. Many people tell themselves:


“Oh no! If I stutter, they’ll see I’m nervous and I’ll fail as a speaker”


In reality, if you stutter for a moment and you try to force yourself to stop, you will get more nervous rather than less. Instead, forget about trying to stop your stutter and accept it as part of who you are.


As you stop trying to stop, your stutter will gradually relax and you’ll access you full & usual way of expressing yourself.
