Join us for one of our best shows on the personality disordered. Vincent Guastamacchia is the CEO and Founder of Perimeter Agency in New York. He is a former NYPD Hostage Negotiator turned consultant and security expert. This one was totally off the cuff and we take a deep dive into the tactics used to ensare victims in a web of confusion, fear, non-reality, and trauma bonds. We talk about how empaths are the biggest target for these people and why it is important to be direct about this kind of abuse. Vincent was referred to us by the amazing Shahida Arabi and is one of the good guys out there helping victims reclaim their lives.

The stress of abuse can kill you. I am not talking about physical abuse only. Mine did not hit me. But they don’t have to hit you to do serious damage. Emotional, sexual, and/or psychological abuse is just as damaging as physical abuse. If you are in an abusive relationship, please find a way to get out or get help. You have to focus on you and your health (mental, sexual, physical, emotional, etc.). This is important and especially if you have children because they need you. Survivors of abuse need to take the time to get healthy and heal. Its hard but it is not impossible. Do what you have to do for you and yours. – NB
