Psychedelic and Plant Medicine Integration Counseling and Coaching
This treatment approach is for those who have had, or are considering, a psychedelic experience and seek a professional to help them integrate the insights that they have had, or expect to have.
This usually involves working to incorporate useful insights gained from the experiences into long lasting, positive life changes. Psychedelic integration counseling or coaching provides an opportunity for you to discuss your experiences, whatever they may be, with a non-judgmental and compassionate counsellor.
A psychedelic experience can be induced without substances. Similar altered states can be induced through many other avenues such as sound meditations, yoga, breathwork, shamanic healing ceremonies, lucid dreaming, energy healing and reiki. These can all induce profound emotional reactions, visions and experiences which can be challenging to navigate alone.
The term psychedelics typically refers to substances such as cannabis, psilocybin, MDMA, LSD, ayahuasca, 5meo-DMT, ibogaine and peyote. It is important that someone considering the use of psychedelics reviews available research which investigates their safety, applicability of use and ability to induce healing and spiritual growth.
Some people choose to ingest these substances recreationally and some choose to ingest these substances in a controlled group healing environment (e.g. a ceremony). Regardless of the setting, it is recommended that consumers be connected with a counselling professional prior to and following the experience
