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

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 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.

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

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 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.

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.
