Service Description: Psychedelic Preparation & Integration

Psychedelic Preparation and Integration Coaching provides in-depth support to prepare for and understand a psychedelic experience.

The insights revealed by psychedelic medicine can be challenging to understand and integrate. When used without preparation or integration time, psychedelics can prove disruptive to every day life.

Psychedelic Preparation and Integration Coaching provides the framework to successfully support growth. Healing comes from exploring psychedelic experiences in-depth. This includes addressing new ideas, identifying unusual sensations, and inquiring about emotional range. Finding ways to include your experience into every day life is key to making long-term, sustainable change.  

Psychedelic Preparation 

When preparing for a psychedelic experience, we will explore:

  • Intentions
  • Expectations
  • Emotional, spiritual, and physical challenges
  • The context in which the session will take place

Psychedelic Integration Coaching

When exploring the outcomes of a psychedelic session, we will address:

  • Big new ideas
  • Uncomfortable experiences
  • Physical sensations experienced during and after the session
  • Emotions experienced during and resulting from the session

 These coaching sessions include Indigenous practices, energy healing, and therapeutic techniques learned after years of specialized training, apprenticeship and experience with non-ordinary states of consciousness.

“I attended an ayahuasca ceremony in a community space with a group of friends. We came and went from the space in a single night. I went in one person and came out a fragmented little boy. I was feeling pretty lost, and downright hopeless about the predicament, until  I started working with Andrea. Her support helped me to frame the experience. I even came out with a better understanding of my anger, when I was just looking to be a whole person again.” - Paul | Vancouver, Canada
