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.

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

Just wanted to tell you how grateful I am for your podcast. I am an English professor, not a therapist, but at home, I'm also a trauma worker... I learn so very much week after week from your podcast. I often end up buying a book and doing further research. There is almost always some nugget of wisdom that helps me see a current problem a little differently, that reminds me to practice self-care, that reminds me that presence is the greatest gift I can offer. And perhaps most important of all, after listening to the podcast, I usually feel inspired and even grateful to be able to go home and be part of my son's journey. It is not always easy to feel inspired and grateful when you're living with someone who has PTSD! The wisdom and insights you and your guests share sustain me in this challenging journey. Thank you for your work.

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.

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

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!

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.
