Psilocybin Therapy

Psilocybin Therapy with Angela

I have been honoured to be among the first therapists in BC offering government-approved Psilocybin-Assisted Psychotherapy for those with Sec 56 exemptions.

In December, the government announced applications should go in to the Special Access Program (SAP) instead, which allows your MD to request access to Psilocybin Therapy for you if you have a serious illness and you've already tried other forms of treatment. One person was recently approved for Major Depression.

Psilocybin Therapy is not typical therapy. It is about entering the space beneath the words and gainining access from the deeper wisdom of your emotions, your sensations, even your pain and tensions!

It requires preparation because working with non-ordinary states can be very, very potent. A high-dose journey can be life-changing. Sacred traditions have always worked with non-ordinary states in order to help ultimately tap into a deeper sense of self...but it should not be taken lightly. To achieve the benefits that a high-dose journey can provide, we also need to understand what we are in for, as we will need to be able to breathe with whatever feelings arise, in order to move through it, and find ourselves better for it on the other side. In other words, memory consolidation and the formation of new neuropathways occur when we can let go and trust the journey.

Contact me today to ask more about applying. I am happy to help provide more information. I am also happy to provide integration sessions, as I have been for years, for people who are returning home from plant medicine journeys elsewhere or have been working with a facilitator, but would like to integrate in a therapist in a safe space with gentle guidance.
