A tearful VA came to ReCreate Me for support with her articulation. VA was unable to pronounce the /k/ sound in any position e.g. ‘cat’ ‘broken’ ‘bank’, replacing it with a /?/ – that is, a glottal stop.
VA was multilingual, this meant that she was unable to articulate /k/ in any of the languages that she spoke.
VA was ambitious with a wealth of experience across several commercial sectors and had sought help for over 29 years but was still unable to pronounce /k/.
The inability to produce /k/ had led to depression VA had become withdrawn and filled with self-doubt.
Over 2 half-day workshops, VA was guided to:
- Become aware of the position and shape of the tongue when producing /k/
- Become aware of what happens to the airstream when producing /k/
- Practice the production of /k/ in isolation, short words and paragraphs and finally, everyday speech
We also worked on improving VA’s confidence levels.
Alongside 2 workshops, VA completed her tailored-made exercises over the course of 2 weeks.
As a result, VA was able to produce /k/ accurately and fluently across all contexts and her confidence in communication reached new levels.

I would like to say thanks first of all for all the hard work and patience you had with me as the problem I had of not being able to say the letters c/k on their own or on any words had stopped me from doing a lot of things which otherwise I would have done.
I have had this problem for 29 years which made my confidence levels very low until I thought it was time to face the problem and with the little time I had with you I now feel like a totally different person.
My confidence is no longer an issue so once again I would like to thank you for all your help.
