Hi doctor,

My voice is very low. I am not able to scold or intimidate anyone. When my friends abuse me, I am not able to reply them. They take advantage of me. They never heed my words. Sometimes, I feel much worried about it. I also hesitate and vibrate while talking. People keep me down with their voice. I am not able to cope with them. My friends suggest me to increase my pitch. Sometimes, I am not audible to my friends also. I have this problem since my childhood. I am having some fear to speak to people and even my friends. Give me some tips to improve my speech and articulation skills.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • As reported by you, the possibility of you have stuttering is very high.
  • If you are scared of people do activities, which would decrease your confidence, then make sure that you stay in a positive environment.
  • Practice in front of a mirror. Try to do activities that would reduce your anxiety.
  • Do breathing exercise, so that the loudness of your voice would increase.
  • Make shorter sentence so that you would have adequate breath support.
  • Fear is not an option to survive. Practice with confidence. It would help a lot. Practice the wrongly articulated words in front of mirror. Follow this and consult a speech therapist nearby for a physical evaluation.
