I offer 60 - 90-minute sessions to support you to integrate deep experience, to get clarity, and to support you to take steps you want to take with purpose and strength.
Preservation and integration of deep personal work
Conscious integration of any transformation or transformational work maximises the potential of the benefits persisting and being carried over into your life and your ongoing relationship with others, with the world, and with yourself.
In order to capture and track what you are uncovering, your experience, your learning and your insight, integration sessions will support you to preserve what you have experienced and what you have unpacked, to integrate it and translate it into enduring life change.
“A psychedelic journey can offer valuable and significant insights that support the unlocking of deeply ingrained patterns. But often insight by itself is not a sufficient force of change, and psychedelic experiences can't replace the necessity for our inner work. If we outsource our healing and growth to psychedelics with out making the effort to support and integrate these experiences, abdicate responsibility, and adopt a passive stance towards our unconscious, we are taking an enormous risk in allowing unprocessed experiences to dictate our choices and our life trajectory. To genuinely transcend our wounds, defences, and early conditioning, it is essential to maintain our responsibility of bringing back the gifts of the imaginal world into a relationship with everyday life”
In my therapeutic practice, I facilitate ‘deep-dive’ one-to-one 5-hour experiential psychotherapeutic sessions for men and woman. The work is rooted in Jungian psychology and archetypal theory and employs various tools of facilitation to work with the inner experience and the inner and outer relational field. My therapeutic approach has strong parallels with the model of therapeutic work used in expanded states offered by MAPS and others.
Integration work can support you to preserve insight in well resolved experience, helping you to harness meaning and transform the experience into enduring life change.
Where there has been unresolved experience or overwhelm, integration can support to slow down and ground, reviving the capacity for you to integrate through containment and closure of the emotional material, supporting you to return to a sense of self that can sustain you in everyday life.
After transcendental experience, while the external world and the demands of everyday life may still be the same, there is an opportunity for deep change in personal meaning making, in how one makes sense of life at a fundamental level. Conscious integration maximises the potential of this being carried over into your ongoing relationship with others, with the world, and with yourself.
