Communication Coaching

Are you curious if you need a communication coach?

Answer yes to at least three of the following questions and you may be a candidate for public speaking coaching:

  • I procrastinate when I need to write or deliver a presentation
  • I am not really sure how to go about being an effective public speaker
  • I am overcome with anxiety when I need to deliver a speech or presentation
  • My mouth gets dry, I feel shaky, and sometimes even dizzy before or during a speech
  • I would love to have more confidence in preparing and delivering my presentations
  • My oral communication skills need improvement for public speaking
  • If I could reduce my fear of public speaking and gain confidence my life would be less stressful

Stuttering Support

  • I believe that I lack confidence as a communicator
  • I avoid certain speaking situations because I stutter
  • My family and/or friends do not really know how I struggle with my speech
  • I don’t feel like a whole person because I stutter
  • I would not pursue my career dreams because of my stutter
  • I may not speak my mind but rather change my words or my message, speed up my speech, or speak softly rather than stutter
  • Number 6 makes me feel like I don’t have a voice – – I really don’t say what i intended to say or I give up talking completely
  • My stuttering makes others feel uncomfortable
  • I experience social anxiety at times because of my stutter
  • People think I am less intelligent because I stutter
  • I worry about what others think when I speak
  • I worry about job or school interviews

Increasing Speech Fluency

  • I repeat sounds, syllables or words
  • My speech is not as smooth as other people’s
  • Sometimes I get stuck on a word and I can’t get out of it for what seems like an eternity
  • Sometimes I am embarrassed about my speech
  • I cause others in group projects to get lower grades because of my speech in group presentations
  • I stutter less in my native language
  • I know before I am going to stutter that it’s going to happen.
  • My disfluencies usually occur at the beginning of a thought or utterance
  • It’s hard for me to move forward in the speech chain
  • There is tension in certain parts of my face or body before and during a disfluency
  • There are certain body movements that I use before and during a disfluency like avoiding eye contact
