    1 Review on “Steve Elfrink”

    • Henry C. 2 years ago

      A good friend of mine sent me a link to Steve Elfrink’s podcast discussion on the PSIP model (Psychedelic Somatic Interactional Psychotherapy) and I listened with increasing interest on what was being discussed. In the dialogue Steve and the moderator mentioned a PSIP white paper that explained in greater detail the science behind the model. As what was discussed in the podcast really resonated with me, I looked up the paper and read it in earnestness.

      Similar to Steve’s story, I too was on a lifelong search as to why I was feeling chronically depressed, suffering from addictions, and disconnected from life. The podcast and paper prompted me to reach out to Steve for insight and hopes for healing. After our phone conversations, Steve and I felt that I might benefit from the PSIP work, so I decided to travel to Oregon to experience PSIP sessions.

      That decision was without a doubt one of the most important decisions of my life. I tend to be somewhat skeptical in general, and even after doing all the research that I had, I entered the process with a heightened sense of caution as I didn’t want to have my hopes dashed by another new “healing modality”. That skepticism has been replaced with a belief in the PSIP model and its effectiveness in accessing deeply held trauma in a way that will have transformative effects on the field of mental health.

      While I now have a deep conviction in the model, I know I wouldn’t have been able to accomplish what I have if it weren’t for Steve’s effective guidance and mastery of the process. His authenticity, calm demeanor, patience, reassuring manner, and his care and concern for my well-being was something I hadn’t experienced before. I also deeply respect Steve’s journey to get to where he is today. He has an incredible depth of knowledge (much of it garnered through his own experience) and is a leading expert in this field. Steve has truly “walked the walk” and now wants to share the healing that he has experienced with others who are searching. I could not recommend Steve more highly.

      If someone would have told me what I was going to experience during the sessions, I never would have believed them, but after having gone through it and witnessing it firsthand, I am truly amazed. The work is not easy, but it is transformative. While I know this is a journey, I can honestly say for the first time in my life I have a new sense of hope and a feeling of well-being. This is real, and I am reconnecting to life in a way that I’ve never experienced before.

      If you would like to discuss this in greater detail, feel free to reach out to me. I’ve let Steve know to share my contact information and would be happy to chat further.

      Wishing you all the best on your journey…Henry
