Psychedelic Harm Reduction & Integration Psychotherapy
Why Therapy for Psychedelic Integration?
The return to “normal life” for participants following life changing psychedelic experiences can be difficult. Western society at this time lacks the cultural container to place many of the psychological and transpersonal experiences and many may feel isolated and alone not only on their return, but in going forward trying to integrate the lessons dug up during psychedelic work.
Michael Ledden as Psychedelic Integration Ireland provides Psychotherapy to those who want to go deeper into themselves in preparation or integration of psychedelic sessions, including helping them make sense of it all and tailor lifestyle changes.
Michael is an Integrative therapist and utilises parts of Transpersonal, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in his work helping clients integrate experiences.
Psychedelic experiences can change our view of ourselves and of reality in profound and permanent ways. The feeling could be summed up as “Am I crazy, or is everyone else crazy?”. This can be very lonely. Our entire meaning making system, our view of ourselves and the world can be radically altered - old behaviours might not serve us anymore and old relationships lose their meaning.
Having a therapeutic relationship where the therapist understands this can be key to alchemically turning the experience into gold going forward.
Typically clients require up to six-eight sessions depending on the case.
Normally one or two sessions are required before clients go on a retreat with the remaining sessions for integration afterwards.
