A Little Love
Studying massage therapy and looking into how trauma affects the body. Just found you today. What a boon!

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.

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 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.

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 just found your podcast, and it is fabulous. After 20 years in the music business and a divorce, I have gone back to school in order to become an LCSW and work with returning combat veterans who live with PTSD. While I have no military experience, it is a population for whom I have great respect and gratitude. Your podcast allows me to learn a vast amount from clinicians in the field. The questions you ask are invaluable (clinical errors is a fantastic question!), as are the stories they tell. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your wonderful work and for giving listeners/students like me some insight into this wonderful profession. All the best, John. I look forward to taking advantage of the materials you have provided on your sight.

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 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.
