No, these are two completely different processes. Psychedelic assisted therapy is a modality in which a therapist is present throughout all three phases of a psychedelic experience which includes but is not limited to preparation, dosing/journey, and integration. Although I am a trained psychedelic assisted therapist, I do not provide these services within my consultation business as most psychedelics are not legal and are mostly supported through clinical trials. Psychedelic preparation/integration coaching is not long-term as well. You and I will decide on a treatment plan which will determine the duration you and I will meet which will either be between three-eight sessions. If longer care is determined, you and I will discuss options for ongoing therapy with an alternate provider.
No. Psychedelic preparation and integration therapy may be covered by insurance companies but coaching is not. This is an out of pocket expense. Therapy is usually longer term while coaching is limited.
As a coach, during preparation, we will discuss the importance of finding a trusted and safe sitter or practitioner. I do not advocate or advise the use of illegal substances, but I do also understand that psychedelic medicines have been an impactful component of the human experience for millenials.
Under no circumstances will I help you find or seek out psychedelics. There are ketamine clinics we can discuss about possible infusion sessions but other psychedelics outside of this conversation will not be discussed in regards to seeking or obtaining.
