An online community dedicated to educating & inspiring anyone interested in learning about trauma.
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!

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.

Thank you so much for providing such stimulating podcast interviews. Your style of interviewing is excellent, as you enable each guest to shine.
I often listen to the podcasts a second & third time & find that I am learning an enormous amount of up to date information.
I work as a Youth & Family Therapist. Most young people who present have experienced trauma.
I had the pleasure recently of attending Bessel Van der Kolk's Seminar in Melbourne.
What really stands out to me is the openness & honesty of the guests. The message about self care & the importance of doing our own work is very clear.

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!!!

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

Dear Guy; I have been meaning to write you an email of gratitude and thanks for a while.. I am a trauma therapist in CT, and have been listening and benefiting from your podcast for a while. The honesty, and depth of the sharing has been amazing, and has helped me, and my (fairly new, 2 years) private practice. I primarily use body centered gestalt work, as well as chair work, similar to Pat Ogden's Sensorimotor, and the interviews have been wonderful. Thanks again very much, sincerely --Mary Ellen Lonergan, LMFT

This path has been a spiritual up-cycling of pain for me. To my point, that is why I am so grateful to your podcast and the guests on it who have survived their own traumas. The generosity with which they have shared their stories gives me confidence that I belong here too. Thank you for the inspiring, encouraging work you do. It's pointed me toward so many great directions for further study and experience. I hope we'll talk some day, And I too, will have something unique and valuable to contribute to the on-going, trauma-informed conversation. cheers!" -- Julie B.
