Psilocybin Assited Therapy
Psilocybin therapy involves the use of a psychedelic compound that is native to a specific type of mushroom in a psychotherapeutic setting.
What a Psilocybin Therapy Session Looks Like:
Psilocybin therapy involves a patient ingesting the psilocybin mushroom while in the care of a therapist. The patient goes on a psychedelic journey in this controlled, safe environment, and the therapist facilitates their experience.
The session lasts six to eight hours, which is the full duration of the medicine's effects. Though in some situations, patients may use the substance more than once. The general standard is that the psychedelic journey occurs a single time, with standard talk therapy often continuing after.
What is the goal of this therapy?
The goal of psilocybin therapy is to impact emotional obstacles and long-term problems in an expedient manner by utilizing the psychedelic journey, rather than spending months or years in talk therapy slowly working through them.
Benefits of Psilocybin Therapy:
Studies have shown that psilocybin is reported to result in significant changes in brain dynamics and functional connectivity (FC) between areas of the brain. This may help to explain why the results of its usage have been so dramatic, and why they have been more long-lasting than other forms of therapy.
Based on the various studies, the benefits of psilocybin therapy include the following:
Reduced rates of depression
Chronic depression moving into remission
Lowered levels of anxiety
Less fear of the future
Increased sense of spirituality and connection
Enhanced quality of life
Things to Consider:
Because psilocybin is a psychoactive substance, it's important to be fully informed before you contemplate using it. It should always be done in the company of a therapist who is specialized in its therapeutic usage.
It Might Bring Up Uncomfortable Emotions
Even if you have positive results from the therapy it may not be a completely enjoyable experience. That's why it's so important that it be facilitated by someone who can help you if things go awry.
It's important to realize that in order to move through painful parts of your life, you'll likely be confronting them head-on in the session. That can be scary and uncomfortable in the best of times, let alone when under the influence of psychedelics.
Patients With Heart Problems Should Exercise Caution
There have been some questions whether psilocybin might cause certain types of cardiac issues, however there is no clear evidence for this. If you have any cardiac or medical issues, check with your physician before considering its use.

"A very healing and amazing experience"
I had the pleasure to have a psychedelic guided healing journey with Cony.
The journey she created was very beautiful from start to the very end. There was a very warm welcome and a beautiful temple. She created a truly magnificent space, where I felt very comfortable.
The journey itself was guided perfectly. She was there present & guarding me, holding space. I felt very safe and secure during my journey experience, Cony really knows what she‘s doing and 100% with the client.
Cony was capable and knew how to handle the emotions that were coming up with me. I felt held but not influenced.
Towards the end of the experience, she waited until I was totally back with full awareness and presence.
All in all: A very healing and amazing experience. I will absolutely redo it with her.
