Sanctuary of Embodied Therapies - Psychedelic Integration

PSYCHEDELIC & EXPANDED STATES 
CARE & INTEGRATION 

 

In Australia,  Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy is only available legally in some settings although some people may seek out of the use of psychedelics for their personal healing journey at their own risk

Psychedelic Integration Therapy can be used for a variety of experiences that involve expanded states of consciousness including Holotropic Breathwork  &  Psychedelic Medicine experiences 

When using Psychedelic Medicines & engaging in work that offers expanded states of consciousness it may be useful for you to consider the preparation and integration phases as part of the journey that you are hoping to explore.  It is usually after the experience that offers the opportunity for life changes and transformation to occur and for these to be integrated into your everyday life. Therefore it can be useful to receive support throughout the process in addition to the experience itself

Psychedelic medicines & expanded states practices have supported civilisations for thousands of years and there is still  significant use of these medicines for recreational, spiritual and therapeutic purposes. The Taboo surrounding the use of these substances can make it difficult to receive the correct and safe practice guidelines as well as support with regards to the preparation, planning, integration and meaning making of these experiences.

My own experiences with expanded states including Medicine, Sound Therapy & Holotropic Breathwork along with my knowledge and training of the IFS Model , Psychedelic Specific Psychotherapy  & the Holotropic Breathwork principles (I am currently working towards certification) can all be used to assist you as you undertake your own journey with Psychedelics & Expanded States of Consciousness. I aim to offer you a compassionate, open and non judgemental supportive space that assists you have the best outcome for yourself.

Psychedelic Integration sessions focus specifically on safety, education, preparation and meaningful integration of your psychedelic journey. Along with education and guidance the use of IFS Therapy & Somatic Therapies (Sound & Breathwork) are used to support you with your journey.
