The Ultimate Stuttering Solution in Israel
How was Siach developed?
About twenty years ago, Daniel (pseudonym), a bachelor in his thirties - an intelligent man with great personal charm - sought treatment from the Jerusalem Clinical Psychologist Gabriel Strenger. The reason for his application was his severe stuttering which he suffered from since childhood and had affected all areas of his life - especially his professional advancement and his ability to develop a stable love relationship.
Before seeking psychological treatment, he underwent several treatments by speech therapists, but to no avail. His hope was that in-depth psychotherapy might help him to discover the emotional difficulties or repressed childhood traumas related to the problem of stuttering. After hesitation, Strenger accepted Daniel for therapy, after making it clear to him that he had no experience in this matter, and that he doubted whether psychological therapy could help.
Following Daniel's insistence, their joint work began, which included the intuitive use of tools that Strenger had acquired in addition to his psychotherapeutic tools: voice development (diaphragmatic breathing and the correct use of the vocal cords), Kundalini Yoga, and a unique form of Jewish meditation that Strenger developed at that time. Looking back, the fact that Strenger speaks five languages also contributed to the formation of the method.
The therapeutic work resulted in a breakthrough that amazed both the patient and the therapist: within a few weeks, Daniel was able to converse in the clinic with a completely normal speech flow. Within two months, he felt comfortable speaking in ever-expanding social circles - in his work, where he began to make presentations to discussion teams, and in a developing couple relationship.
Over the years, Strenger refined and standardized his unique treatment method, combining tools from different fields of knowledge. Siach (Siach Hofshi - "Fluent Speech”) keeps helping people opening up new avenues of communication with the world.
