Guy Macpherson is a psychologist who specialise in the treatment of trauma and early psychosis. For the last six years Macpherson has dedicated himself to the study of trauma psychology, trauma therapy, post-traumatic growth, and most recently, the intersection of trauma and psychosis, specifically the signs of early psychosis.
His inspiration comes from working with the courageous individuals determined to learn and find meaning from the trials they have endured. His inspiration comes from personal experience as well: his brother is a Navy SEAL veteran who suffered with PTSD.
As a result of these experiences Macpherson has focused his energy on the study of trauma psychology and trauma therapy.
His goal with the West Coast Trauma Project is to help other trauma therapists thrive–through providing actionable information, community building, inspiration and support.
He run a website dedicated to those clinicians – the psychologists, marriage family therapists, social workers, psychiatrists, any and all trauma workers – who specialise in treating individuals who have suffered psychological trauma.
He holds a PhD in Clinical Psychology and MA Clinical Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and BA in Extension and Pre-medical Studies from Harvard University. You can follow him on Twitter @guycmacpherson.
