This program has been a game changer for me in my recovery because it explains why we are wired the way we are and behave the way we do when we experience betrayal trauma. I only wish I had found this program earlier to help in alleviating some of my pain and my reactions to my trauma.
This program gives knowledge and understanding to facilitate healing from betrayal that usually would take years to obtain. This is probably the fastest way to heal as the concepts presented are immediately applicable and are more thorough and go much deeper than most groups or materials that are available elsewhere. Michelle Mays is not only one of the leading Betrayal Trauma Specialists in the U.S., her knowledge and insight are above and beyond any other counselor in this field. Though this program is expensive, the investment is truly worth it.
I wasn’t sure the Braving Hope Program could add anything new to my healing journey. Michelle assured me it would and she was right! I have learned many new concepts, healing tools and have gained new insights. Michelle’s love for this work shines with her joyful, wise and compassionate presence in the live Q&A sessions, where she gently holds space for each partner. This really is a well put together, comprehensive, fresh and invaluable resource for betrayed partners! I highly recommend it!
I want to thank God for Michelle. She has created this program with so much love and care. It shows that she has gone through this whole healing process and that she has emerged victorious. The knowledge she has on the subject is AMAZING and she explains with such patience and care. The Braving Hope program is ideal for all those people who are going through betrayal.
Wow! For once in my life, I am able to find some peace and clarity. I have spent years in a fog, just barely getting by, allowing my world and my life to be consumed by betrayal and now I know by betrayal blindness. I allowed it to become a bad house guest in my mind and in my heart, constantly keeping me stuck in the hell of my past and self-destructing any hope of a brighter future. Thank you Michelle and your team for creating this very valuable program, for encouraging me to join the program for me, teaching me to put myself first, and to really take the time to work the program, deal with my issues and acknowledge and accept what my reality truly is and how to get unstuck and move forward.
I was feeling hopeless and stuck. I was desperate for recovery but didn’t know how to move forward. The Braving Hope program was exactly what I needed. I’m making progress, and I know my healing will take time, but I’m finally moving forward with Michelle showing me the way. I’m so grateful to have found this program.
This program has been completely life changing and I am forever grateful! I have gained invaluable knowledge from Michelle and the amazing women on this shared journey. I have been empowered to make informed choices and begin healing.
Without any reservation, I can recommend this course to any betrayed partner who has been reeling in the aftermath. Despite being post-discovery, post-disclosure (guided by CSAT therapists), I needed to reclaim my SELF, the person that I was before my husband’s sex addiction upended my life. While I had read reams of articles and books, listened to hours of podcasts, & spent hours with my CSAT, I still needed that guiding hand for where I was in the healing process. This course is exactly that. Michelle’s very approachable demeanor made me very comfortable and the course content was well organized. I can honestly say it is worth every penny!
Where do I begin? This program has been a Godsend for “such a time as this.” Michelle Mays has incredible wisdom in the area of complex betrayal trauma. She makes it easy to understand and has such compassion for us, the betrayed. I have learned more in the 6 weeks with her than I have in 2 years of counseling! I would recommend this program to all the betrayed out there. There is hope! You don’t have to live in fear, shame or as a victim. Michelle and this program will help you learn to stand in your truth and be free from the tangled web of betrayal!
Where do I begin? Michelle Mays is a treasure with a wealth of knowledge, insight, and brilliance. I only wish I had found this program a couple of years ago. I have learned and grown so much in the past few months. I have learned to set boundaries, use my powerful voice, and that everything I have felt in reaction to betrayal has been normal. This has truly been an enlightening experience and has helped me know that whatever the future holds for my marriage, I will be okay. I highly recommend this program for anyone navigating the confusing, painful road that is betrayal trauma.
I was shocked at how little I really understood the impact of my husband's SA and betrayal had had on my emotional, physical and spiritual life. This is the first time I "got it" regarding the impact of the lies over the past 15 years and how clueless my husband was. The course opened my eyes to how I deserved better treatment and gave me real-life skills to begin my healing and make important decisions for myself.
