"If I can say ONE word anywhere, anytime, I can LOVE to say ANY word anywhere, anytime."
Coach Lee created Speech Anxiety Anonymous (SAA), a self-help organization, where people who stopped stuttering (PWSS) help people who stutter (PWS) to stop stuttering. Coach Lee estimates that as of December 2019 some 200 PWS have stopped stuttering using his methods and most of them have posted “Success Stories” on SAA. Excerpts of some of those stories appear below, with links to the full Stories of each on SAA.
"I started stuttering at age seven, shortly after my father was murdered in his bed beside my mother. The gunshots still ring in my ears...For years, I believed there was in fact, no cure for stammering...I have read Lee’s book now three times and I love how practical the steps are. No jargon, just easy to follow steps to assist yourself cure...Lee’s crutches are great...Lee is a modern day saint and you should trust his methods and start your self cure today."
"After stuttering severely all of my life and spending about $30,000 in two years of unsuccessful therapy in New York, I found Lee’s book and started Skyping with him. Within four months or so, I stopped stuttering. That was three years ago, and I haven’t relapsed."
"I was a severe stutterer from age 3. After 12 years of daily therapy, therapists told me that I’d just have to live with it. I worked learning Lee’s methods and practicing the Crutches. It works! No one now thinks I stutter. Four years later, I still don’t stutter."
"For those of you who have faced this struggle, Lee Lovett is the real deal. For the first time since age 3, I can now say that I am not going to live my life as a stutterer. The seeming weight of the world has been lifted from me. It’s been four years of fluency, and public speaking is what I do for a living."
"My mother and uncle stutter; so, for me, it was genetic. My stuttering was noticeable by everyone and had become a curse. I consumed Lee’s book and began applying its methods. I stopped stuttering in mid-2018. It took about four months, and I am thrilled beyond words." (This medical doctor confirmed her fluency 18 months later.)
"My son, Matthew, diligently applied Lee’s methods and we have seen incredible, fantastic improvement in his speech. We simply couldn’t be more pleased!" (His fluency continues one year later.)
"I am now doing job interviews without stuttering, and I no longer fear talking on the phone and I don’t stutter there either. The stuttering curse can be cured." (Over two years later, no relapse.)
"I highly recommend Lee’s books and methods to any stutterer that finds the conventional therapy not working or who has suffered relapse after a therapy. If you stutter, it’s time to stop. You can do it too." (Eighteen months later, his fluency continues.)
"The fact that I know the crutches is a huge self confidence booster, since it gives you 12 stutter killers to kill any block!" (Over 18 months later, fluency confirmed.)
"I recently began my new career as a nurse, and my stuttering was the worst its ever been…I found Lee…a man who understood every nuance of stuttering who beat it without additional therapy…I found that using the crutches can be fun…I haven’t stuttered…With Lee’s methods my speech grows better and better every day…" (No relapse in over four months.)
"It’s all about mind training, mind control and dictating your thoughts. It takes practice, concentration, determination, will power and above all persistence. I’m convinced that most can make Lee’s methods work." (No relapse reported 30 months later.)
"I began stuttering at age 5. That was the year my mother died. I had a grandfather who stuttered severely…I had inherited the “stutter gene”; my fate was decided. Lee Lovett was able to change this mentality…his methods do work. They take some work, but it’s worth it. You have an entire new life to gain. Stuttering does not have to be your life curse." (No relapse in the six months since.)
"From age 4, I suffered extreme blocks, nagging repetitions and facial distortions. For 16 years, I was forced to constantly address the entire student body at my school to improve my stuttering but it grew worse every month, despite having a host of different therapies. In less than three months, by using Lee’s methods, I stopped stuttering in May 2018, and I haven’t relapsed. This is a miracle for me, and I want to share it!" (This medical doctor reported no relapse 19 months later.)
"The Crutches are so powerful. I know that I can avoid stutters now. It’s time that all of us rejoice in the fact that stuttering IS a curable disease and Lee’s methods work." (No replase reported 15 months later.)
"I used to take pills for anxiety but I was able to quit once I started using Lee’s methods. Lee Lovett broke the stuttering code. There’s no reason to keep stuttering, not anymore." (One year later, no relapse reported.)
"Stuttering has always been a big part of my life. What cured me? The emphasis on mind control and trying to be a better person and using Lee’s Crutches." (No relapse reported 19 months later.)
"Lee’s book, methods and coaching have changed my life for the better forever. You don’t have to stutter either." (No relapse reported 9 months later.)
"When I use Lee’s methods, I sound natural and fluent. I can avoid nearly all stutters, even when under intense pressure, and, as I improve my ability to use his methods steadily, the number of stutters has fallen to near zero." (Nearly three years later, he re-confirmed his fluency.)
"I met with speech therapists but it was of no help. Lee’s book and his methods worked for me and I believe they can work for most who work at them." (One year later with no relapse reported.)
"Lee’s methods of auto suggestion and using “crutches” has been the only thing that has worked. I want to thank him once again for the impact his methods have had on my life!" (Fluency confirmed 14 months later.)
"I have struggled with stuttering most of my life. It consumed my thoughts and me. I tried various therapies but they didn’t work. I loved Lee’s weird and wonderful ways to create a memory bank full of positive images. Today my speech is phenomenal! It makes me so sad to think that people are wasting their lives when there is a cure. I stopped stuttering in September 2018 and I help Lee coach other PWS." (Fluency confirmed 18 months later.)
"I now use the crutches constantly. So here’s what I want to say to my fellow stutterers: You can stop your stuttering. Anyone who doesn’t believe that hasn’t really applied Lee’s methods. They work. I now help Lee coach other stutterers." (Fluency confirmed one year later.)
"I attended group speech theory, which actually made my speech worse. I began applying the methods in Lee’s book and I have not had a debilitating stuttering incident in over 6 weeks!" (Over a year later, no relapse reported.)
Watch Josh's story about how The Lovett Method changed his life forever:
Note: To read all Coach Lee’s posted Success Stories, go to Speech Anxiety Anonymous. Some will bring tears to your eyes, but the end of each one is pure joy. Many of these people who stopped stuttering refer to The Lovett Method as “life saving”. There are far too many to be accidents or fabrications. Lee reports less than 10% experienced relapses and most of those quickly got back on The Fluency Wagon. The truth is that stuttering and speech anxiety in all its forms can be stopped and are regularly and often routinely stopped by using The Lovett Method, which SAC has now refined and expanded into courses and other materials, all with Lee’s authorship or guidance. We believe the days of stuttering and speech anxiety on this planet are now numbered. A new day of worldwide fluency is near, and SAC is leading that charge – while Lee, the Licensor of his methods to SAC, continues to do what he enjoys most: Coach PWS and other speech sufferers for free. His time is limited to small numbers, which is the reason that he is helping SAC spread his methods throughout the world.
