How Do I Stop Talking So Fast And Other Bad Speaking Habits

“I hated the sound of my voice. It was timid and sing-songy. It was causing me to be interrupted, presenting at work. It used to take me as many as ten tries to record a voice-mail message.

When I listened to myself, it didn’t sound intelligent. I looked forever for help and never found it until I started working with Ita. She understood me right from the start and explained that I had to do my part of the work. It took time, but it wasn’t hard. The results have been incredible–my voice is charismatic and confident all at the same time. I’m never interrupted, and people love my ideas!”

“I’m originally from Japan, but after 17 years in Long Island, my accent was a mix of the two. It was awful. Twelve sessions later, I gave a speech at my best friend’s wedding.

  1. A fluency disorder causes problems with the flow, rhythm, and speed of speech. If you stutter, your speech may sound interrupted or blocked, as though you are trying to say a sound but it doesn’t come out. You may repeat part or all of a word as you to say it. You may drag out syllables. Or you may talk breathlessly, or seem tense while trying to speak. If you clutter, you often speak fast and merge some words together or cut off parts of them. You may sound like you are slurring or mumbling. And you may stop and start speech and say “um” or “uh” often when talking.
