Yesterday something that I experienced as overwhelmingly traumatic happened to me. I started to freak out, and then I remembered sitting with you, and I remembered to feel every sensation in my body and to let it run it's course, as unbearable as it felt. I felt extreme nausea; I felt like my stomach was on fire inside; it felt like there was a ball of fire turning over and over and over. I felt a tightening of my throat; I observed that I wasn't breathing. When the sensations would come, I just let them, and they didn't overwhelm me! After years and years of panic attacks to the point of passing out, I was able to NOT freak out that I was freaking out that I was freaking out, as you say. :) For the first time, instead of feeling panic and thinking there's something wrong with me (and that I need to control it) I knew that this was something right with my nervous system and that I could let the process run it's course. I could feel the support that you've given me from here.
Typically after a terrifying experience, I wake up with that pinched nerve in my shoulder which leads to a three day and three night migraine. This is the first time that didn't happen.
This is nothing short of a miracle. I had have been telling everyone I have a real conversation with about you. I am so thankful, I don't even know what to say. But I know that you will understand, because I think you yourself know the gratitude that comes with realizing it's actually possible to exist in the world and NOT live life as a hyper-vigilant or traumatized person. I can feel that gratitude for the work coming through you when I'm with you.

Working with Brian is a great experience. I never get overwhelmed during sessions, and it is great working with someone who "gets it." You're in good hands.
I've compared some of the experiences I've had with him to an exorcism because of how deep and poweful they are.
He's also a pleasure to deal with when it comes to scheduling and needing an extra phone call and just being available when you're hurting I need to help and comfort.
I'm so glad that I discovered him.

Brian immediately made me comfortable with him. His technique is different than anything I've tried before and it has been the ,ost successful out of anything over the last several years. It has made leaps of progress in my quality of life and how I approach different situations. An example, I was terrified of flying for many reasons (mostly due to airsickness and illness) and now I am flying every few weeks with minimal discomfort and dureness. I truly appreciate him and can't wait for more progress to come!

I have lived through very serious trauma, along with a chronic illness; as a result, my daily life is extremely challenging. I have had crippling physical and emotional repercussions to live through. I have been incredibly diligent with my personal survival and growth, and I am always willing to search for answers. Though I have found some things helpful, I have mostly been on my own when it comes to my emotional coping skills.
Brian was strongly referred to me by a friend from a support group, and I decided that I would try yet another angle of healing, so I booked my first appointment. Traditional talk therapy was helpful to a degree (which is why I continued to do it for many years) however, after a few sessions with Brian Mahan, an entirely new world of hope and rapid progress opened up for me! I really was constantly surprised by how much I would learn about myself after each session. And let me tell you, I am such an introspective and deep-thinking person. So when I learn something about myself, with the facilitating of someone else, it is just amazing.
I swear, Brian has helped to save me from a life of dark heaviness and horrible daily cycles of relived trauma. I honestly go to bed every single night thanking God for Brian Mahan. I am so thankful that I decided to do my first few sessions. Now, I feel like I have myself back. I really do owe so much of that to Brian. To think that one person has the ability to bring someone through such an important and viable process, and to do it so effortlessly-- it is incredible. I could never thank him enough. What a kind and generous person he is. I know that I am rejoicing very loudly here over Brian, but I usually do not gush like this. It is just that he really is this gifted. Very smart, very loving, very open and always excited to see growth in others. --Now THAT is the kind of health care professional that we all need!!! I have been searching for someone like this my entire life. Love love LOVE this gifted man!!!

Working with Brian has shifted alot of things in my life for the better. It's not easy or lazy work, but well worth it....especially if you've tried other types of therapy and haven't found real change I highly recommend Somatic Experiencing work for resolving past trauma. He's both a caring, talented and compassionate therapist and friend in the journey.
Brian was great! He called promptly at the appointed time, answered all questions, listened carefully, and was kind, patient, and clear in his responses. I look forward to our first session.
