School for Stammerers
We are delighted in the interest in The Starfish Project that has been created by the ITV program School for Stammerers, and to have the opportunity to help more people find decent, effective therapy to control stammering at an affordable price. The Starfish Project has been helping people who stammer to change their lives for over twenty years without making profit out of their misfortune. We hope that we can help you.

Welcome to the Starfish Project Website
Like many people, who visit our site will have reached a point in their lives where they want to do something about their stammer. You may also have reached that same point of 'enough is enough'. Many people have told us of their frustration with the severe lack of stammering /stuttering therapy facilities within the health service, and their search for decent and effective stammering therapy.
For lots of people, as well as years of trying ineffective therapies, they will have also tried expensive hypnotherapy with either none or very short lived results. For others it has been the disappointment and time wasted with therapies giving false hopes and a promise of stammering cures. Whilst others come to Starfish disillusioned after trying very expensive electronic devices designed to disguise or delay sounds and control stammering.
We welcome you to the site, we do not promise a non-existent cure for stammering, we will not try and hypnotise you, or sell you and ask you to wear any gadget or device. Our aim is to provide decent, effective therapy with free lifetime support to as many people who stammer as possible, without making profit out of your misfortune of having a stammer, stutter. We hope that you find the joy of effortless speech with the Starfish Project.
The Starfish Project has been helped and supported thousands of people who Stammer over the years. The technique taught on our courses has enabled them to gain control of their speech and lives. We are a non-profit making project for training people who Stammer (Stutter) to control and gain confidence over something that has controlled them.
Unfortunately, there is NO CURE for Stammering or Stuttering. However our training is specifically designed to give you the tools and the confidence to control your stammer in the day to day speaking situations that you will encounter.
Watch young Jack Turner on This Morning
A little time after his first Starfish course Jack Heal-Turner decided to speak about his story of stammering and finding help to control his stammer from The Starfish Project. We are so proud of Jack, the courage he showed in doing this and all he has achieved since. Please take the time to read his mum's introduction and watch this incredible piece of film.
