The psychedelic renaissance is here, and it might be the best thing to happen to mental health in decades. The latest research confirms what indigenous communities have known for thousands of years: used consciously, psychedelic medicines are some of our most powerful tools for psychological and spiritual transformation.
But it's not just about the "trip". The preparation and integration container of the psychedelic experience is where meanings come together and true transformation happens. I offer a holistic approach based in harm reduction that integrates the insights of the psychedelic journey along with all aspects of the self.
How it works
While drawing from scientific, therapeutic and spiritual traditions, the process is highly personalised and designed to amplify your unique intentions and aspirations. My aim is to support your self-discovery by sharing my knowledge and experience, and creating a safe container for you to discover new parts of yourself. Our sessions may include elements of teaching, coaching, mindfulness meditation, tarot, as well as recommendations for reading or further practice.

Psychedelic Prep & Integration
"Although the experience is special, it does not happen to a special person. It happens to any of us when the conditions of letting go and opening the heart are present, when we can sense the world in a radically new way."
- Jack Kornfield
What is psychedelic preparation?
Preparation is all about setting the ground for a profound experience. Our sessions will focus on building a solid grounding in knowledge about the psychedelic experience, learning navigation tools, exploring your goals in the context of your life, and setting intentions. The aim of these sessions is to help you understand and trust the process, so that you can let go and have a transformative experience.
During our sessions, we will begin to go deeper into the issues that brought you to this work, and kick-start the journey of self-discovery through coaching, dreamwork, tarot, and mindfulness meditation. You might notice profound insights bubbling up, or you might start having memorable dreams, or "weird" coincidences happening to you. These are all signs that your psyche is opening up to the experience, and will ideally continue to be explored in integration coaching or your personal psychotherapy.
*While I'm happy to advise on what type of psychedelic might be best for you, I do not provide or sell any substances. Please be aware of the legal status of psychedelics where you live and make choices that support your safety and wellbeing.
What is psychedelic integration?
Psychedelic experiences are incredibly powerful. They can open our hearts, melt our defences, show us the love we never thought we deserved, and teach us acceptance. The insights we discover can radically transform our lives for the better - and that's why the work we put in integration is crucial.
Integration is the process of turning the wisdom and beauty of altered states into permanent traits. Part grounding, part storytelling, and part coaching, the process of psychedelic integration is where most of the work lies.
Our integration sessions will focus on a gradual process of grounding you back in reality, exploring the feeling-tones of your journey, and then diving deeper for the meaning and how it applies to your life. We will explore how these new insights can support your growth and bring you in deeper connection to yourself, others, your community, and the environment. And if your journey was a mind-boggling spiritual opening, we will work through your spiritual emergence with our feet firmly on the solid ground beneath us, allowing this larger consciousness to unfold at a pace that feels safe and nourishing.
