Radio One’s Surgery with Aled… revisited

In June of last year Gareth was interviewed by Aled at Radio One, on his ‘Surgery’ programme, which tries to help others in similar situations. Gareth chatted about Stammering, it’s dibilitating effects and breathing techniques that have helped him, through the McGuire Programme control his stammer (on good days). He is the first to admit there are many bad days too.

The interview talks of the BBC 3 Documentary when Gareth was comissioned to follow the successes of fellow stammerers and help them transform their lives.
