A Little Love
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 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.

Thank you, Guy for this excellent website. I am truly grateful and appreciative to have found this fruitful orchard of learning and wisdom. Thank you for the opportunity of benefiting from not just the masters in the field of trauma. I am touched by the authenticity they bring, their integrity, even sharing the mistakes - Thank you so much - I am relatively new, my passion is building strong families, healing restoration, and hope after trauma in children, developmental trauma, attachment, and dissociation - best wishes.

I am feeling so inspired about this work thanks to my daily connection with your podcasts and videos in Trauma Therapist | 2.0. I'm starting to daydream about bringing some trauma training into my local mental hospitals. .. one day when I get there!
That's my rant over :-)
Time to sleep. Goodnight!

Hello! I just recently stumbled upon your podcast and I am so grateful! I am a master of social work intern working with victims of trauma. The education and input you provide and guest speakers are wonderful! I really appreciate your humility and talking about your own experiences as a student. It seems as though the things you touched on that you struggled with are the same things I am struggling with as well. It helps to know I’m not the only one, and I could still be a successful therapist if I want to. I often feel I have no idea what I am doing, but you remind me to trust the process. Thank you!!

I began listening to your podcast on a road trip last night and have been binge listening ever since. I am finishing a clinical psychology internship and am an aspiring trauma therapist. In your podcast I found the inspiration, passionate examples, self-searching questions, wisdom and guidance, I have been craving. I am still reeling from the implications of developing "presence" and how I can do that in my own life and in my work. I am so grateful you invested into your dreams and created this website and this podcast. I am on fire to be a contributing member to your community.

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

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.
