I lack confidence because of my embarrassing lisp
Fiona Caine is here to help if you have a relationship, sexual, marriage or family problem.
I’m embarrassed to talk to people because I have a lisp.
I’m a 16-year-old boy but don’t join in with much social activity because I’m embarrassed and so I don’t have many friends — and I’ve never had a girlfriend.
Do you know anyone who can help me get over this? BS
FIONA SAYS: SEEK OUT A SPEECH THERAPIST
Ask your GP if you can be referred to a speech therapist, because you may be able to get over this.
There are corrective exercises that you can try and a therapist will know which ones are best for your type of problem.
However, there are plenty of successful men with lisps and speech impediments, so don't put your life on hold.
Most people will hardly notice anyway!
