Trauma Therapist | 2.0 is a community dedicated to supporting, educating and inspiring new trauma therapists from around the globe.
When I got to graduate school it was all about “What trauma book do I need to read,” or “What workshop do I need to attend,” that was going to help me be the best trauma therapist I could be. Both of which are crucial.
But what I missed was how much I mattered. And by that I mean, how much my self-awareness mattered, and how integral my own authenticity and presence mattered to doing this work.
And sometimes developing those elements takes a certain self-confidence, and self-belief, which at the time I honestly was kind of lacking.
I created Trauma Therapist | 2.0 to help other new trauma therapists learn the value of themselves and their uniqueness within the context of doing trauma work.
I wanted to create a community where new therapists could learn from seasoned professionals, and also learn from each other, from therapists from all over the world, without judgement, or embarrassment.
This community is not about being an expert. It’s about being yourself, and learning to honor who we are, and yes, also learning about trauma, but then learning how to put those things together all in service of helping people who’ve been impacted by trauma.
What Members Are Saying
Michelle Turnbull. I think it’s a great reflective practice to just sit and listen and watch the Master Class Video Interviews and gain those insights and build little gems into your own practice. I think it can be a really great part of your own supervision, in a sense.
Caroline Cook. When I found Trauma Therapist | 2.0 I felt like I was home. The education the community provides is a huge part of it. Your Trauma Therapist | 2.0 puts me in touch with so many different people who work with trauma—and who have more knowledge than I do—and they give me acknowledgement and affirmation that I’m on the right path.
Jessica Culp. I feel like we’re able to share information with each other and that we’re allowed to ask questions that are both professional and personal. A while back I felt really overwhelmed because I’d encountered a client that had a really serious trauma history and wondered whether I was going to be able to pull this off. I had so many people from the community jump in and just encourage me and just to make me feel that I was going to okay!
Some of seasoned trauma professionals you will learn from
You no longer have to do this alone.
Trauma Therapist | 2.0 is an online membership community dedicated to supporting and educating new trauma therapists, just like yourself.
You’ve just found your tribe of people who get it–who understand what it means to work with those who’ve been impacted by trauma.
This is where you get to engage with other passionate trauma therapists from around the world, and learn the steps they’re taking to manage this incredible journey.
This is where you can share your struggles. And your wins!
And this is the place where you watch your confidence soar.
Imagine Having The Confidence You Need
Sitting with individuals who’ve been impacted by trauma requires much more than reading and studying.
It requires doing your own work.
This means cultivating presence, compassion, authenticity, and vulnerability.
These qualities don’t just magically appear when they’re needed.
They have to be intentionally honed.
By surrounding yourself with other, passionate trauma therapists, through hearing their journey, and by getting access to the thought-leaders in the field, you will learn that a lot of this work depends not on what you know, but on your ability to believe in and know…yourself.
This isn’t easy.
Yet with this knowing comes a certain kind of confidence and authenticity, which are the cornerstones of this work.
Trauma Therapist | 2.0 is there to walk with you along this inspiring path.

My name is Guy Macpherson, PhD.
I’m host of The Trauma Therapist | Podcast and founder here at Trauma Therapist | 2.0.
Several years ago, during my commute to my post doctoral internship, I spent a lot of time thinking to myself…
I don’t know what I’m doing?
How come my clients aren’t listening to me?
Why should they even listen to me?
I know I’m going to retraumatize someone.
I dreamed of having a master trauma therapist sitting right there beside me in the passenger seat to mentor me.
To help others like myself, I started The Trauma Therapist | Podcast to help inspire and support new trauma therapists.
And that quickly led toTrauma Therapist | 2.0.
What Therapists Are Saying
I am so thankful you have put together this platform for different people with different backgrounds and life experiences to share their story in relation to doing this work. I am looking forward to staying in touch with this community! :)–Kelsea
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!!–Tara.
