The Kassel Stuttering Therapy:
Speak fluently, live freely!
For those affected, stuttering can be an extremely problematic speech flow disorder. It shapes every day, lowers the quality of life and often limits both professional and personal potential.
Idea and Founding of the Stuttering Therapy
The Kassel Stuttering Therapy was founded by Dr. Alexander Wolff von Gudenberg in 1996. He is himself an affected person and went through 12 stuttering therapies in various countries over almost 20 years. During this time, he made the decision to become a physican himself and to found his own institute in order to help stuttering people as effectively as possible. He formed the KST program based on the most successful therapy elements he experienced during his own therapy journey. Today the Kassel Stuttering Therapy Institute is an internationally-renown organization for people who stutter looking for professional support in overcoming their speech disorders.
Successes of the Kassel Stuttering Therapy
More than 4,500 stuttering persons have been treated with the Kassel Stuttering Therapy program. In 2022 Dr. Wolff von Gudenberg was honored with the Silver Commemorative Plaque by the Hessian State Medical Association in Germany for his long-standing, successful work in the field of stuttering.
Worldwide, only very few therapy programs can show as many long-term studies with such high evidence as the Kassel Stuttering Therapy.

Success in numbers
The results of the Kassel Stuttering Therapy have been analysed and evaluated by independent scientists right from the beginning: 93% of patients show significant improvements immediately after therapy, 89% still one year after therapy, and 75% of patients continue to benefit even 3 years after the end of therapy program.
In particular, the long-term and thus sustainable success is crucial for us, as only this brings a real increase in quality of life.

And this is what our clients say about stuttering therapy:
I will never forget the difference between the day I arrived there a little nervous and the incredible moment of confidence after the intensive course knowing that I had found a way to manage my stuttering problem.
The group dynamics in the classroom course were a great experience for me. We grew together incredibly and became friends; I still meet up with some of them today – three years later.
