The Impact of Depression

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

 

 

Most people who struggle with depression experience:

Sadness | Hopelessness | Fatigue | Changes in appetite | Changes in sleep patterns | Unexplained physical pain | Excessive feelings of guilt or shame | Difficulty maintaining relationships | Difficulty performing at school or work | Difficulty participating in social activities

If left untreated, depression can lead to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.

Treating Depression 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 depression.

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.
