I can say that I am a moderate stutter in the daily life but very severe when using the telephone.Can anyone give me some tips about how to control my stuttering when I make calls especially I have this problem when calling for example, my bank ,to ask something and the teller asks me questions too.

This may be of little help but many years ago I would record my phrases and play them with Fasttracker (where samples are assigned to keys) instead of speaking but that won't work where more interaction is required.

This was my number 1 issue when i was a stutterer.
I believe it induces speech stress. One of the biggest fears for a stutterer is being put on the spot to speak especially about an unknown topic and a stranger, the unknown of what some might say. etc.. I would stutter a lot less when answering a phone rather than making the call. When making a call, the ring is the killer we(stutterer) tend to hold our breath an undergo a valsulva manoeuvre (i.e locking the body and vocal chords)
Hope it helps
