Sometimes, feeling like you’re not alone can further help you cope with what is happening in your life. Knowing that others understand what you are going through can help you in many ways. That’s the general goal of modern mental health podcasts, especially those geared toward helping people cope with trauma.
Following are a few popular podcasts that may provide some comfort.
The Trauma Therapist – Guy Macpherson
Guy Macpherson, Ph.D., interviews thought leaders in the fields of trauma, mindfulness, addiction, and yoga. Listeners hear about the mental health therapists’ journeys, who dedicate their lives to helping those who have been impacted by trauma.
Therapy Chat – Laura Reagan
Host Laura Reagan, who is an integrative trauma psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, interviews therapists and other experts about perfectionism, worthiness, authenticity, self-care, trauma, attachment, parenting, relationships, mindfulness, and holistic psychotherapy methods. The podcast features discussions about the “emotional experience of being human.”
The Healing Trauma Podcast
The Healing Trauma podcast is hosted by Monique Koven, who has been a certified trauma recovery coach and social worker for more than 25 years. As a survivor herself, she features conversations with trauma experts as well as survivors to offer hope for the healing journey.
Life after Trauma
The Life after Trauma podcast is hosted by Licensed Professional Counselor Alyssa Scolari. Through her experiences as both a trauma therapist and a trauma survivor, she has realized how incredibly isolating and painful recovery from PTSD can be, and she shares her messages with others to help them feel connected. When she’s not podcasting, she has her own private practice in New Jersey where she specializes in treating clients with eating disorders, trauma, PTSD, and other types of life stressors.
