Therapist InfoAbout Me:
Landing in the real world after a peak psychedelic experience can be incredibly disorienting, bewildering and lonely. How do you make sense of these spectacular or frightening things you have experienced? How do you make decisions based on your insights?
With a deep reverence for ancient and modern wisdom, my therapy process utilises knowledge, science, body, soul and spirit for holistic healing on a deep and cellular level.
I have undertaken comprehensive training within the field of psychotherapy and navigating psychedelics, as well as having twenty years of nursing experience, bringing a wealth of physical and mental health expertise.
Having personally experienced transformational results from working with psychedelic medicine, and expansive states of consciousness evoked through breathwork and meditation, I believe wholeheartedly in this workDescription of Services:
I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and a Psychedelic Integration Psychotherapist. I offer online counselling, psychotherapy and psychedelic integration, on a short or long-term basis.
My training and experience is in supporting clients undergoing psychedelic, shamanic and expansive consciousness exploration; drawing inspiration not only from neuroscience and physiology, but also from the wisdom of the indigenous people, the plants, the earth and the ceremonial processes so absent in our modern world.

- Jungian psychoanalysis
- Transactional Analysis
- Attachment theory
- Trauma informed
- Creative therapy
- Relational therapy
- Transpersonal psychology
- Shamanic, indigenous and spiritual wisdom

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
The integration process can involve sessions both before and after a psychedelic experience.
I am unable give you specific advice about where to obtain psychedelics. I can point you in the direction of resources, books, websites, journals, workbooks, checklists, breathwork sessions, mediations and musical playlists.
I can help you to prepare by maintaining your safety and being conscious with your intentions. I can help you afterwards to work through your experience, make meaning and plans, implement changes and to be an enlightened witness to your process.
As a guide or sitter can make all the difference in the psychedelic journey, having a guide or sitter for your integration process will enable you to have the best enduring outcome from your experience.
Integration involves moving towards wholeness, moving your experiences forward and making meaning of them. Taking a profound and spectacular, life changing experience and integrating it into an everyday, mundane world.
Psychedelic integration psychotherapy is an important cog in the wheel of the integration process; having someone well trained to witness you, believe you, having curiosity and interest in your experience. As well as sharing theory, empathy, care, compassion and keeping a close eye on your wellbeing.
There is no such thing as a quick fix, this is important to understand. Psychedelics are an agent of change, they don’t do the work for you.
The psychedelic experience is one event in a much longer change-process. For best results, you must be willing to engage in the process and dive deep.
You may experience a totally disorientating loss of identity; “who am I now without my old buddy depression?” Our coping mechanisms, like depression, are unconscious defences, they serve and protect us from perhaps a more painful reality. In some sense there needs to be a “breaking up” process, you need to ask yourself, “what am I prepared to give up to get what I want?”
This is where the integration process is crucial. Making changes too quickly can be an extreme culture shock, a bit like coming up too quickly from a deep diving experience.
Focus on small steps, don’t make big life changes too quickly, allow your grief and regret to surface, and ground your experience physically within your body.
I can help you with all of this.Intake Process:
I undertake a six session, informal assessment process, before committing to longer term work.
