It is widely understood that psychedelic therapies can make significant impacts in neuroplasticity, creating lasting shifts in mood and habituated patterns. Whether you are seeking to understand yourself better, explore the nature of consciousness, or heal PTSD, depression, or anxiety, this can be exciting and hopeful news. In order to make the most of these powerful medicines, however, integration and preparation are key.
Please note, I do not offer plant medicine ceremonies or psychedelic therapy myself. Rather, I support clients who are either preparing for a session that they have arranged independently or are working to integrate an experience they have already had. This allows clients to get extra support before and/or after their medicine sessions. This can look like:
Before a Psychedelic Session: Your psychedelic experience will be most powerful if you’ve taken time to prepare, set a clear intention, and gained a level of comfort working in an altered state. If you’re new to psychedelics, your first experience can feel as though you’ve been dropped into a new country without a map. How do you navigate this entirely new type of experience? Together, we can support you to become more familiar with this new terrain and approach it with intentionality. This will allow you to embark on the journey ahead with greater clarity and comfort, and get the most benefit out of your experience.
After a Psychedelic Session: One of the great things about psychedelic experiences is their power. Often, clients feel as though they’ve been through years of therapy in just a handful of hours. New information, emotion, and insight may come to light for you, sometimes at a speed and volume that feels extremely hard to digest. Now that you’ve had these powerful experiences, how do you make sense of them? What does it look like to bring this new knowledge into your life and continued healing? Using Depth Hypnosis and Shamanic Counseling, we can revisit the experiences and issues that have emerged and support you to process and integrate them fully.
