Adult Stammering Service

adults talking

We run a service for adults, aged 16 or over, who stammer (also called stuttering). This is supported by Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and our clinic is based at Flockton House in Nether Edge.

We realise that this might be the first time that someone talks about their stammer or talks about how it impacts their life and those around them. We do our best to provide a calm, safe and honest space, and work at the speed of whoever we are speaking to.


First appointments last about an hour. The therapist discusses with the client how the stammer impacts upon their life as well as understanding what they want from therapy.

Therapy sessions are usually individual but we sometimes also run groups if we have enough interested adults.

Referring to the adult dysfluency service

Adults can refer themselves directly to our service by calling or emailing us or by completing a referral form. Referrals are also accepted from carers, GPs, and other medical professionals. We aim to see new referrals within 18 weeks of the referral being accepted.

For further information please contact Claire Bull or Anneleen Kennard.
