What people are saying


I wanted to say how valuable my hour with you was!  After we hung up, I felt confident about navigating my way in becoming a solid and informed,  trauma focused, therapist.  I left with practical tools in my hand, confidence in my spirit, excitement about where I'm headed, and logistical support in how to get there.  I also walked away feeling part of a community, tied in with others who are excited about this work and passionate about sharing their knowledge.  Thank you, Guy!

I appreciated many things about my coaching call with you, but especially your knowledge on the topic of trauma work, your holistic approach and your genuine willingness to be of service to others. Thank you, Guy, I learned a lot in one short hour. Your coaching call was a true gift!
--Brenda L., New Brunswick, Canada 



I am so excited to to finally launch my one on one coaching program. 

For the last 7 years I have dedicated myself to the study of trauma and trauma therapy. When I first began in this specialization I knew I wanted to help individuals who had been traumatized, but I didn’t know what to do or where to begin. 

I was a more than a bit intimidated. 

Ok, let’s be honest--I was nervous and I was scared. 

I knew I was passionate about getting into this field, but had no idea where or how to start. 

While I was in graduate school I thought the answer was in that next workshop, or that special book that would have all the answers, or that conference that would immediately allow me to understand what I needed to do. 

I thought these were the things that were going to make me a trauma therapist. Well, not exactly. 

All of those things are important in our process. 

But they’re not everything. 

In fact, if you’ve been listening to the podcast, then you know, they might not be the most important aspects of being a trauma therapist. 

There are those other facets, such as: 

-Presence 
-Authenticity 
-Our own inner work

Our ability to raise our level of awareness in each of these areas is crucial. 

My goal with this coaching program is to guide you on the beginning of your journey. It's to encourage you to take the right steps to your becoming a trauma therapist.

What people are saying

The coaching session that I participated in with Guy was a great eye-opener for someone who is a new trauma professional like myself. Guy's insightful questions and intuition into the world of trauma was extremely helpful for me in improving my practice of trauma therapy. Having someone who is as down to earth as Guy outside of my own practice is a great asset... - Eric S., Minnesota
