Psychedelic Assisted Therapy

What is Psychedelic Assisted Therapy?

Over the past few years, there has been a significant surge of interest in psychedelic-assisted therapies (PAT), and this surge is well-founded. Psychedelic-assisted therapy is an innovative approach that utilizes the potential of psychedelic substances, such as ketamine, or psilocybin, MDMA, in combination with therapeutic support to facilitate profound psychological and emotional healing.

This therapeutic modality involves three essential phases: preparation, guidance, and integration. These phases work in harmony to optimize the therapeutic benefits of the psychedelic experience and promote lasting positive changes in individuals’ lives.

It is crucial to acknowledge, however, that these positive outcomes are achieved within carefully crafted environments that encompass specialized preparation before the psychedelic experience, guidance during the experience, and organized integration sessions afterward. The key takeaway is that while the psychedelic encounter is important, it constitutes just one component of the overall therapeutic approach.


The preparation phase is a crucial foundation for a successful psychedelic-assisted therapy journey. It involves thorough and intentional steps to create a safe, supportive, and structured environment for the upcoming psychedelic experience. Key elements of the preparation phase include:

Educating the individual about the chosen psychedelic substance, its effects, potential benefits, and risks.
Establishing a strong therapeutic alliance between the individual and trained therapists or guides, fostering trust and open communication.
Assisting the individual in clarifying their therapeutic goals and intentions for the psychedelic session.
Addressing physical health considerations, potential interactions with medications, and psychological readiness for the upcoming experience.
Designing a comfortable and secure environment for the session to minimize potential anxiety and enhance feelings of safety.
Providing continuous emotional support and reassurance to help the individual navigate the various emotional states that may arise.
Encouraging the individual to explore their thoughts, emotions, memories, and experiences, often leading to insights and breakthroughs.
Assisting the individual in managing any difficult or challenging moments during the session and guiding them toward resolution.
Promoting a state of surrender and acceptance, enabling the individual to experience the process fully.


The guidance phase involves the actual administration of the psychedelic substance under controlled conditions, with the support and presence of trained therapists or guides. This phase is designed to facilitate a transformative and healing experience while ensuring the individual’s safety. At the moment, Ketamine is the only psychedelic that we can participate in as a guide. It is important to note that psilocybin and MDMA are not legal psychedelic. Key elements of the guidance phase include:

The integration phase is a vital component of the overall psychedelic-assisted therapy process, occurring after the psychedelic experience. It focuses on translating the insights and revelations gained during the session into meaningful, long-lasting changes in daily life. Key elements of the integration phase include:
Engaging in structured discussions to unpack and make sense of the insights, emotions, and memories that emerged during the psychedelic session.
Collaboratively developing practical strategies and action steps to integrate newfound insights and positive changes into daily life.
Offering ongoing psychotherapeutic support to address any challenges, questions, or emotions that may arise in the days, weeks, and months following the experience.
Guiding the individual in making sustainable adjustments to their lifestyle, behaviors, and thought patterns based on the lessons learned.

Psychedelic-assisted therapy, with its comprehensive approach encompassing preparation, guidance, and integration, aims to harness the potential of psychedelics to facilitate profound healing, personal growth, and transformative change. Through these interconnected phases, individuals can embark on a journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.
