Counselling & Psychotherapy Surry Hills
Make Sense of Your Experience
Ayahuasca integration counselling for individuals that have experienced, or are curious about, ayahuasca.
Please note, I am currently on leave for an indefinite period. I am not currently taking on new clients. As such, I am not able to reply to emails or requests for referrals.
Ayahuasca integration counselling helps you make sense of, or plan for, ayahuasca ceremonies and experiences.
I provide integration support to people who have experienced, or are curious about, ayahuasca. Integration sessions are offered in person in Surry Hills, Sydney or online via Google Hangouts.
For some people, the effect of psychedelics such as ayahuasca can make ordinary, familiar experiences overwhelming. Others may remain confused or anxious long after their experience is over. Ayahuasca integration counselling provides an opportunity for you to discuss your experiences, whatever they may be.
From Confusion to Understanding
The ‘aim’ of ayahuasca integration counselling is to make sense of and determine how to best incorporate insights gained from your experiences.
During sessions, I invite you – if you wish – to talk about the details of your experiences. I draw your attention toward any insights or emotional shifts that may have occurred, and help you consider how these changes may be integrated into your daily life.
Please note, I do not provide psychoactive substances, nor do I recommend their use. However, if you do intend to journey into altered states of consciousness, I offer support to those seeking assistance to integrate your experience.
Judgement-Free, Empathic Counselling
I understand the experience of altered states of consciousness, and I will not dismiss anything you might choose to share about your own explorations. I know that, after the ‘light show’ has ended, integration is key to understanding and growth.
I can help you make sense of the lessons from your experience and integrate them into your day-to-day life.
