The work you’re doing is so important, and the way you share your knowledge (freely or inexpensively) says a lot about your passion for the subject.

A Little Love
Hey Guy, just wanted to thank you for setting this all up. Loving the Podcasts!
Absolutely loved the transparency and compassion in this podcast! I think Dr. Mate' s statement about diving into our own childhood trauma is probably one of the most inspiring and important statements I've heard in these podcasts. Thank you for sharing these wonderful podcasts and for your wiliness to discuss your relationship with your brother Guy! So very brave and honest and truly inspires me to continue my own work on myself!
I just read the Road Map. I found many of the things you expressed were things that I have heard before, even though I am relatively new to the trauma field. I resonated with the fact that as therapists, healers, clinicians and fellow travelers that doing my own development and journey is vitally important in this work! So, about a month ago I decided (with a little anxiety) to get my own EMDR therapy. I am an EMDR therapist and saw how beneficial it was to my clients. And, even though I have not experienced the depth nor breadth of trauma that others have, I recognized the need to find healing and hope for myself.
Thank you for this opportunity to continue to learn and grow with and through others through this forum!

Had I not found out about his podcasts at The Trauma Therapist Project and the membership in Trauma Therapist | 2.0, it would have taken me much longer to find out how to progress in this important clinical focus. Everything about both is inspiring and educational.

Studying massage therapy and looking into how trauma affects the body. Just found you today. What a boon!
I just wanted to say thank you for the podcasts. I just discovered and am binge listening- Great information!!
Guy, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
I'm just starting my own private practice working with veterans with PTSD...your website and the podcasts are exactly what I've been looking for: some solid guidance as I start out helping people with some complex challenges.
I haven't had a chance to start listening in earnest to the recordings you've put together, but what a smart and humanitarian idea you have come up with.
Knowledge is to be shared, not hoarded, and your project is an admirable example of that.
I wish you every success.
I love the egalitarian environment in which any member is encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge. I believe this openness to the plurality of perspectives allows me to grow as a clinician.

I am a new therapist living in the UK, near London. I have done my BSC and MA in psychotherapy and now am starting to train in trauma as my specialism later on.
I came across your podcast early 2016 and really love listening to your shows and getting insights from lots of great therapists. So I wanted to thank you for what you are doing, it's been informative, interesting, guiding and many of the clinical errors have made me wake up to my errors that I pushed aside and minimised, so you have helped me and my clients!
Many thanks, look forward to listening more shows in 2017.
Happy New year to you.
So, so, so grateful for the work you are doing! thank you!
Hi Guy , I have been contemplating embarking in a new career in Art Therapy for sometime and stumbled across your Podcast through research. Since then I have been engrossed in vast information and inspiration from all this new knowledge, giving me a greater insight into my own "stuff".
This has given me such clarity about the past trauma I have been through in my life and also what triggers have been causing me anxiety and depression over the years. This now is the driving force behind why I now want to use my caring and creative skills to help others who may be experiencing similar past trauma.
I am now in the process of looking into going back to University and doing an MA in Art Therapy. This Is why I was thanking you for the work you are doing as it gives people like myself a sound starting block to hear all the different stories and information to encourage others to pursue their goals like yourself.
Kind Regards, Karon
Hi Guy, I have a small issue which I'm hoping you can help me with... I am a Trauma Therapist Project Podcast Addict!!! I cannot stop listening to all these awesome podcasts with such amazing, incredible, remarkable trauma therapists who give so much of themselves to help, heal and provide hope to the lives of others whilst remaining humble, honest and holding the utmost integrity in themselves. I feel truly blessed to have stumbled across your podcast and have been listening and re-listening ever since. I buy the recommended books. I write down the quotes - not necessarily the ones mentioned but I quote the therapists who speak so eloquently and present such candid accounts of their inner experiences as well as their genuine love and care for all of humanity. It is truly breathtaking and heartwarming whilst also being stimulating and provocative. I work in the field in two different capacities and am truly brought to my knees by these practitioners again and again. So thank you. Please keep on interviewing so I never have to suffer withdrawals. And I promise to go on to iTunes and give you as many stars as the Universe can hold.
You can be very proud of your enormous contribution to Trauma Therapy at a time in our History when thousands of our Injured Warriors and Families continue to suffer because of the lack of health resources and the protocol of psychiatry to cast a dark shadow on everyone they meet for a few minutes as they receive their cocktail meds and create the VA Shuffle....Suicides continue daily. These master therapists introduce alternatives that produce results of health, restoration and resilience without these chemicals. Thank you, my friend....you are the best there is and so timely. Great Year's Work!!!
Guy!I can't get enough of this podcast and I'm really thankful for the passion and heart you have behind trauma therapy.
I just wanted to thank you for the work that you do and share.
I've discovered your site for two weeks, since then I hear every day at least two podcast They are so exciting and inspiring,
Hi Guy, Thank you so much for this remarkable podcast. You have a mentor's heart...something I find to be truly rare.
I absolutely have found a huge source of comfort and inspiration in Guy's podcasts. I listen to podcasts prior to sessions as a way of grounding myself to what I'm trying to accomplish with the trauma work i do with clients. It's become a form of self-care for me in a lot of ways.
Recently I have been listening to your podcasts daily. They are exactly what a new therapist needs. Thank you for your generosity, sincerity and wealth of information you made possible. I am very grateful xxx
I am a licensed MFT and am so incredibly passionate about working in the field of trauma and find your podcast enlightening and inspirational. Is there any way I can be involved in this? Or in any project related to trauma? I am hungry to be part of a movement or a project related to trauma therapy. I also know I won't lose anything by asking, as the worst that can happen is you say no. So, if there's anything I can do, please let me know. Or if there is an opportunity for me to apply to work/volunteer with this project, I would love to do so. JF
Thank you so much for the (Trauma Therapist | 2.0 video mp3) download link, it has made a difference to my life!
I had been intending to watch the videos in the evenings at home but every time I tried to watch I got distracted or was too tired to concentrate. So now I can download them I play them in the car while I'm driving and just listen. This way I find it way easier to follow and concentrate and i'm thoroughly enjoying them, so thank you again!
I am feeling so inspired about this work thanks to my daily connection with your podcasts and videos. I'm starting to daydream about bringing some trauma training into my local mental hospitals. .. one day when I get there! (The background of that is that I did some placements at various psychiatric settings and was shocked at how infrequently trauma was mentioned, talked about and seen as relevant to patients' treatment. And how little trauma training most of the psych nurses who were running the places had.)
That's my rant over :-)
Time to sleep. Goodnight!
