    Episode 527: Sarah Peyton. Truth, Trauma & Self Warmth

    Episode 527: Sarah Peyton. Truth, Trauma & Self Warmth

    Sarah Peyton joins me again. (She’s joined me previously ( https://www.thetraumatherapistproject.com/podcast/sarah-peyton-trauma-relational-and-embodied-language/ ).) This time to Talk about her new book, Your Resonant Self Workbook: From Self-sabotage to Self-care.

    Why is it that we often don’t allow ourselves to feel warmth, to take a break, to chill out? And when we do, it’s often that we’re so hard on ourselves?

    Sarah talks a lot about this in her book and how our actions like these tend to cut us off from our true selves and a richer life. Yes, I’m guilty of that!!

    Sarah is a Certified Trainer of Nonviolent Communication and teaches people how language changes relationships and the brain. She works with audiences internationally to create a compassionate understanding of the effects of relational trauma on the brain, and writes about and teaches people how words change and heal us.

    Her special interest is the way that difficult events impact our automatic brain patterning, and how to transform our tendencies toward self-criticism into self-warmth. Her first book is titled, Your Resonant Self: Guided Meditations and Exercises to Engage Your Brain’s Capacity for Healing.

    Your Resonant Self Workbook: From Self-sabotage to Self-care takes us through the world of relational neuroscience and, using the lens of unconscious contracts, explores how our brains, nervous systems, and bodies react to the brains, nervous systems, and bodies of others.

    This workbook provides the tools to turn inward with kindness, warmth, and curiosity and create opportunities for self-healing.

    Episode 526: Jackson Goding. I Will Light Myself on Fire

    I loved having Jackson on the podcast. He pretty much represents everything I'm attempting to do with this podcast:

    Jackson is a Counsellor and a psychotherapist at Find Reason Therapy, a private practice called in crows nest, Australia. Jackson prides himself in helping individuals to find reason to live, to grow and to understand.

    Jackson’s foundations and core focus is in relationships and codependency, working in particular with understanding what has happened in the past that leaves emotional pain in one’s present.

    Jackson provides a safe space for people experiencing emotional pain that want to find reason to improve and grow in their connections and life. The focus is on working together with challenges and concerns that can stem from issues ranging from communication, trust, intimacy, past trauma, repeated patterns, grief and loss to suicidality, addiction and mental health concerns.

    Jackson is a registered member with Psychotherapy and Counsellor Federation of Australia. I have a Bachelor in Psychology and a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Jackson also runs a podcast on connection and mental health and loves writing and posting about practical and helpful gems.

    Episode 524: Kari Gleiser, PhD. Using Emotion To Heal

    Episode 524: Kari Gleiser, PhD. Using Emotion To Heal

    I think this is one of the most inspiring interviews I’ve done. Again, not because of me, but due to my guest and how she works with clients. In this interview we’ll learn about AEDP ( Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and the emphasis on being in the moment, and naming the experiences that are happening between the client and therapist. This calls for authenticity from the therapist as well as creativity. And each of these things excite and inspire me! I hope you enjoy this one.

    Kari Gleiser is a clinical psychologist in Hanover, NH, specializing in the treatment of complex trauma and dissociative disorders. She is a senior faculty member at the AEDP Institute ( https://aedpinstitute.org/ ) and co-founder/co-director of the Center for Integrative Healt ( http://www.center4integrativehealth.org/ ) h.  Keri has developed a relational model that incorporates AEDP into work with dissociative disorders, and dissociative parts of the self, called Intra-relational AEDP.

    Episode 523: Marianne Hennigar. Insight Healing

    Episode 523: Marianne Hennigar. Insight Healing

    Today it’s about what it means to be a healer in the true sense of the word. My guest, Marriane Hennigar was drawn to helping people heal from the time she was a young girl. Now, with some experience and education she’s created her own program to assist in the healing process.

    Since childhood Marianne’s been fascinated by how people work.

    She uses psychoeducation to connect the dots between the psychological and emotional experiences which expresses themselves in the body. Marianne’s currently engaged in masters level classes in psychology with the aim to finish her degree in the next year. Additionally, she’s seeking certification in Somatic Experiencing and Brainspotting, both body-based modalities which support the client harnessing their own internal wisdom through focus to discover healing.

Info we all need to know!

I am a therapist and first learned of the Trauma Therapist podcast from a client who resonated with one of the episodes. I’ve now listened to every single episode and can say I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in the field or already in the field and working with ANY type of mental health issues.

Trauma is something that touches us all in one way or another, whether or not we realize it. Research on the impact of trauma and best practices for treatment has rapidly advanced over the past few decades. These episodes shed light on topics we all (new therapists, experienced therapists, clients, and the world as a whole) need to be aware of so we can help heal trauma rather than prolong its effects.

Guy and his guests are friendly, open, honest, and forthcoming in sharing their experiences and wisdom, making it not only full of helpful advice and information, but fun and interesting to listen to.

A wealth of insight

I couldn't be more thankful for the wealth of advice on this podcast. I'm currently a student, and I think this podcast fills in some of that gap between book learning and experiential learning. A huge theme is the importance of being, not just knowing, and of the therapeutic relationship, not just therapeutic technique. Therapists share important realizations they had early on in their careers. Listening to this podcast is like getting to have coffee with hundreds of therapists and glean their wisdom. So awesome. I've learned so much important information that will help me to be a more effective therapist early on.

How do I find season one

This seems like a very interesting podcast. I’m just wondering how I can start listening from the very first episode?
