“I chanced upon a bit of your work on YouTube and looked you up right away on FB. THIS IS THE INFORMATION I NEED. 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. We newbies often don't have tons of cash for the real education we need, but we want to help! Thank you for your generosity and expertise! I'm hooked.” Liz Golden

A Little Love
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.

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.

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.

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!

Guy Macpherson, PhD has made an important contribution to the profession for education, resources, and community for trauma-focused therapists, new and experienced.
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.

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!!!

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!
