I've Been Waiting for This Book!
As a trauma therapist this is the book I have been waiting for, for so many clients who struggle between sessions. This book is gentle, practical and very effective. It provides many simple and easy to follow strategies for things to do, that offer moments of calm and respite from the internal storm. Fay offers just enough of her own story, to illustrate that she knows what she is talking about, but not so much that the reader will feel pressure to be like her. It is a resource that the reader can go back to again and again. It will make the reader's life a bit easier, the therapist's job a bit easier, and will probably give the therapist more ideas of additional ways of working. And for the many therapists who have their own trauma story, it may help them personally too!. Bravo for a wonderful contribution!

What Others Are Saying

Thanks for the training!

Thanks for your books and courses that fuel my training, powering a continual stream of inspiration. I recently used some of the exercises from them with a couple clients. They were great! I'm now having clients come back more steady. Ready to engage more fully in their own therapy. 

Janet Thorpe

Wow. Just...WOW.

I'm revisiting practices from a recent retreat I did with you and wow. The power of it didn't fully hit me until now. Doing the exercise agin dropped the disturbance immediately and dramatically. I'm busy sharing it with all my clients! Thank you. I cherish that you have given me tools to assit me on the journey of healing.

  ""Deirdre Fay is the real deal. Her compassion and steadiness radiate and heal simply by being. In addition, the practices she's created are inspired, deep, simple to learn, and highly effective. It's no small feat in our world to heal, and earn secure attachment and safe embodiment. Deirdre has both fiercely and gently carved out that path, and guides us all down it -- truly embodying the bodhisattva. Deep gratitude to you, Deirdre, and excitement for more learning in the years ahead!" -Mary Hartley Platt Zen teacher 

Expressing my gratitude

Wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for these courses. You've introduced us to some great tools that really work for me. It seems you have scanned the worlds of psychology, spirituality, neurology, etc. and have mined that which is most helpful for healing to create this wonderful toolbag. I am very grateful that you have chosen to share it with all of us. Especially because you are such a living embodiment of the work! I could hear and feel your presence and kind attention on the calls, coming from your heartfelt center. It's what I've been aspiring to for so long. So you are inspiring!

What I do with your audios...

Quick note of thanks! I have your audios in my itunes, so I just let them continue playing, one after the other, listening as I work, as I drive around. It's a really good way to stay centered in what I want to do, who I want to be. I pause what I'm doing and do the small practices -- and then get back to what I was doing, more grounded, clear, and able to focus. I should also add that my husband is really grateful to you as well! He's seeing the impact this work as on me and how I be with him. Best help I've had yet! Thank you!!!
