Michael Palin Centre for Stammering

The Michael Palin Centre opened its doors in 1993 to help children, young people and adults who stammer from all over the world. We offer specialist therapy for stammering in children and adults, supported by NHS Whittington Health and Action for Stammering Children.

* Please note that this website is still under development but we have turned it live in order to make our online resources available during the coronavirus outbreak. Feel free to contact us if you spot any errors or omissions, or if you have any queries.*


COVID-19: we have had to close the Centre until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, you can still access online therapy, online training, call our Helpline on 020 3316 8100 or find out more about stammering.
