Nothing is particular cause for stammering, you consult doctor to get medicine but also consult the speech therapist and evaluate your stammering then take continues speech therapy, slow your rate of speech whenever you talking someone, take a small breath to start the words, practice the relaxation and breathing exercises at home. Less your nervousness and freely mixed with your friend but you must take speech therapy, after speech therapy it will be curable.

What we have to do in CBT for psellismophobic person? Give me some stepwise idea about this.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For those who are prone to stuttering might feel embarrassment, some kind of distress as well as fear in most cases. Psellismophobia is full blown condition / phobia. Cbt is one of the best form of treatment therapy for the same. We believe that our brain can be re-wired / reprogrammed just like the our pc could be programmable. In cbt the basic principle is to looking into the thought processes that lead to negative belief and behavior pattern. We believe that these unhealthy thought processes are continue the chain reaction of thinking, acting and believing leading the behavior to continue. For example" what will happen if I stutter? I always stutter when there are people around. The cbt aims at changing these thought processes and replace them with more positive thought processes, which is called cognitive restructuring. In other words it is all about changing the way you think about something so that your perception will also change and that will help reduce the problem. The first step in cbt is to notice your recurrent thoughts which are negative. These are the thoughts that works as a trigger. And write down these thoughts on a piece of paper. You may divide the page in 3 vertical columns and write down negative thoughts in first column. Second state is rational thinking - here you refute the negative statement with rational thinking, which we all could do when not currently in a stressful situation. For example, if a negative thought is" what will happen if I slutter? rational thought could be as simple as" these people are friends" or" in a conversation what is important is my participation. And in the third column write down positive affirmation - these are positive thoughts and positive statements that you consciously repeat. For ex" I am a confident and effective speaker. This will help you improve your confidence. The bottom line behind this is that you repeat this affirmative statement often enough that they gradually become habitual thoughts. When you are naturally thinking these positive thoughts that itself will improve your performance. Along with cbt you can also use regular meditation session to help you manage your stress better and to induce calmness which helps in the process. Visualization is also very effective way to change behavior. It works as begin with the end in my. Daily you see yourself speaking confidently and maintaining your calm, confident state of being while in conversation. You may also include how you are successfully working with your fear or embarrassment by changing your thought and body posture. This will also help change your behavior. Hope this helps.

As you r telling the problem, there may be hoarseness of your throat. Avoid cold drink and curd etc. Do gargles of hot water with salt three times a day. Also at night hot milk adding turmeric, sugar ghee you may take 3 days.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

You cannot change your voice from deep to high. In fact deep voices are much looked up to in society fro many reasons. You could cultivate your voice for this pitch and get into another genre of music. So, go for good voice training to groom your deep voice gift and make the most of an envious voice really.

There is nothing called "behaving like a gay" He might very well be bisexual and that's a perfectly normal sexual identity.

From last many year am suffering from a problem that some words stuck into my mouth while speaking I went blank I know I am suffering from some thing what is that I do not know.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
It appears like a social anxiety or performance anxiety. Kindly try the following: 1. Write down your thoughts and while alone, stand in front of a mirror, and slowly read it aloud or imagine that you are talking to your friend/colleague, stand in front of the mirror and say the casual dialogues that you will have with your friend, colleague. 2. Check with yourself what kind of words do you get get stuck at? are they" names" places" or are these words difficult to pronounce? write it on a paper and while alone read these words loudly. 3. Please understand that we all make mistakes. So please allow yourself to make mistakes. Try to improve upon your speaking skills and every time you notice some progress in yourself, pat yourself or reward yourself. 4. You can overcome this with more and more practice. Practice different dialogues, when you are alone, you will gain confidence by doing this. 5. Have realistic expectations from yourself. We all are good at some skills, not good at some skills. Focus on your good points and skills. You need encouragement and support. Try to be with people who will understand and appreciate your efforts. Best of luck.

My brother is having a stammering problem from his childhood. Now,he is 25 years old and is a doctor. But that problem is not gone. We have shown him to the ENT doctors and they have concluded that there is no defect in his throat. That problem has taken a mental illness and he is under total depression and not ready to do further studies and always remains in angry mood. We have also shown him to the speech therapists but it is of no use for his problem. How can his problem be tackled efficiently and effectively?

Stammering could have neurological, medical or psychological causal factors. Consult a neurologist first and get all investigations if it is a neurological problem. Sometimes, due to anxiety also people have trouble like this and stammering is the result. For psychological reason, consult a clinical psychologist who may use behavior therapy principles in its treatment management. Lastly, I would also like to tell you sometimes due to such problems, people develop depression and stress as they have difficulty in normal conversation and they feel frustrated. So dealing with frustration is also important point to be kept in mind in their treatment option.

I have some problems with pronunciation like the vowels R, l, and S. Please help me By the way I have open bite .

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Hi doctor I am having problem with my voice. I am 19 when I speak to someone over the phone or in person, I always hear them saying" what" can you speak again". May be thats because my voice is not loud enough and clear. Also when I hang out with my friends as we laugh out loud so much, gossip so much, then at the end of day my throat feels like coughing. Is there any yoga/ exercise/ food to make it correct?

Hi, my advise to you to go for a voice evaluation by an speech therapist. But I can suggest some methods you can follow it. First you need to drink plenty of water during your conversation, do not whisper or clear your throat regularly, voice rest is must, avoid smooky area, caffeinated products, do not eat spicy foods.
