Psychedelic Assisted Psychotherapy


For many years I have been actively exploring the healing potential of altered states. Particularly in working with trauma and pre-verbal wounds I have realised that accessing the 'inner healer' through various forms of 'energy work' such as Holotropic Breathwork can be effective in helping the client's process. All of this is most safely achieved within the context of a container of relational therapy.

More recently I have become involved in the burgeoning renaissance of psychedelic medicines and have been facilitating on medical trials of these substances, most notably psilocybin. I believe that these substances offer a paradigm shift in the help offered to people with various mental health presentations. During trainings to orient my practice towards psychedelic facilitation and particularly clinical trials, I have learned afresh the importance of preparation and integration for these experiences to be useful. I am also deeply mindful of the wisdom traditions of indigenous communities that have taught us how to use ritual and ceremony with respect to plant medicines.

I do not offer private psychedelic assisted psychotherapy sessions as this type of work is still illegal outside licensed facilities, nor do I encourage people to experiment with substances that have the potential to destabilise outside a clinical setting. However I am able to offer one-to-one integration sessions as needed when slots are available.

Supervision slots are on Wednesdays or Thursdays during the daytime, in Isleworth


Therapy slots are Mondays (daytime and evening) and Fridays (daytimes only) in Ealing. There are occasional one-off slots to explore working with me, or a limited set of three or four when on-going clients are away.


Please get in touch to discuss the type of issues you would like to address.
