Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy for Anxiety

Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is a healthy human emotion.

It's our body's way of helping us prepare for the future so we may feel safe and in control. Without this feeling, we wouldn't plan for the future, take precautions, and achieve our goals.

When our anxious feelings don’t seem to let up, when they become too much to handle, and they start getting in the way of our daily life, that's when we start speaking about anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, panic attacks, and specific phobias.

They’re often associated with unpleasant physical sensations, like a heart rate that won't slow down, muscles that won't relax, and even stomach troubles, all on top of the ever-present emotional rollercoaster.

 

But there is a silver lining: anxiety disorders are treatable. With some understanding, support and professional help, you can learn how to manage these feelings, get back in the driver's seat, and improve your overall quality of life.

What is Your Level of Anxiety?

The Impact of Anxiety

Anxiety can manifest emotionally and physically, impacting the quality of your life.

 

 

Most people who struggle with anxiety & anxiety disorders experience:

Muscle tension | Restlessness | Rapid heartbeat | Digestive issues | Excessive worry  | Fear | Irritability | Panic attacks | Difficulty maintaining quality of life | Difficulty maintaining relationships | Disruption in work or school | Withdrawal from social activities

Maladaptive anxiety can hinder productivity, impair decision-making, lead to increased stress and burnout, and significantly impact one's sense of joy and fulfilment.
Anxiety can also occur with other mental health conditions, like  depression, specific phobias, panic attacks, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), & eating disorders.

Treating Anxiety with
Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy

What is Psilocybin?

Psilocybin (often referred to as “Magic Mushrooms”) is a naturally occurring compound found in some mushrooms. It is a powerful and hopeful form of treatment for anxiety.

Psilocybin’s impact on the brain

This compound seems to work its “magic” by indirectly influencing serotonin receptors, which can help regulate your mood and emotions. It also promotes better communication between different parts of your brain, allowing you to gain new insights and release suppressed emotion.

Why we use psilocybin in our evidence-based therapy framework

When psilocybin is used in a therapeutic setting, it can facilitate a state of “ego dissolution”, which allows us to feel connected to something larger than ourselves, allowing deep and lasting relief from painful emotions and thought patterns. It offers a special opportunity for deep self-reflection and personal growth, allowing you to view your hurdles with greater clarity and understanding, instead of judgment. 

 

To get the most out of your psilocybin journey, pre-journey preparation and post-journey integration therapy with a qualified, compassionate psychologist will help you process and grow from the experience, giving you the tools to heal from depression and sustain these changes long after therapy has ended.
