Evidence-Based Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy Support
If you are seeking therapeutic support for an independent psychedelic journey, EQNMT's qualified psychologists can prepare and guide you, using EQNMT's therapeutic framework.
EQNMT combines basic supportive therapy with evidence-based behavioral therapy, and embodied practices supported by evidence:
EQNMT's evidence-based preparation sets your journey up for success.
We start with a one-on-one sessions with your selected psychologist, including:
Guidance on Nutrition, Movement & Mindfulness practises
Once you have gone through our pre-journey preparation session, you should be equipped with the necessary knowledge and tools to embark on an independent psychedelic journey.
After an independent psychedelic journey, your EQNMT psychologist can assist you in making sense of your experiences and insights through best-practice integration therapy.
Integration is a key component of psychedelic-assisted therapy, with research showing more positive long-term mental health outcomes.
While psychedelic compounds are powerful change agents by themselves, published research indicates that psychedelic experiences, when paired with therapy, leads to better and more enduring mental health outcomes.
Published research indicate the safety and efficacy of psychedelic-assisted therapy.

EQNMT Results: 98% Success Rate
To date we have tracked psychological measures of 71 clients that have gone through our psilocybin-assisted therapy programs. The data shows that our program provides immediate symptom relief as indicated by 1 month post-retreat measures and that these results are sustained or even improved at 6-month follow-up.
The Science of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy
Psilocybin therapy, which involves the controlled use of the psychoactive compound psilocybin found in certain mushrooms, has shown promise as an effective treatment for a range of mental health disorders.
While research in this area is ongoing, several key neuroscientific mechanisms underlie its potential efficacy:
Disruption of Default Mode Network (DMN)
Psilocybin has been shown to temporarily disrupt the DMN, a network of brain regions associated with self-referential thoughts, rumination, and the sense of ego. Overactivity of the DMN is linked to conditions like depression, anxiety, and addiction. By reducing the DMN's activity, psilocybin may help individuals break free from entrenched thought patterns and gain new perspectives on their mental health issues.
Increased Brain Connectivity
Studies suggest that psilocybin can increase connectivity between different brain regions, facilitating novel connections and insights.
This can enhance cognitive flexibility and potentially help individuals reframe their experiences and emotions in a therapeutic context.
Psilocybin appears to promote the processing of unresolved emotions and traumatic memories.
This may enable individuals to confront and work through underlying issues, making it useful for conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Psilocybin may promote neural plasticity, the brain's ability to rewire itself.
This can be crucial in breaking entrenched patterns of thought and behavior and fostering adaptive change in the brain.
Enhanced Mood and Perception
The compound can induce altered states of consciousness, characterized by shifts in perception and mood.
These experiences, under the guidance of trained therapists, can potentially provide individuals with a fresh perspective on their mental health issues and facilitate a more positive outlook.
Some studies suggest that psilocybin may promote neurogenesis, the growth of new brain cells.
This is an important factor in maintaining overall brain health and resilience, which can be relevant for mental health disorders.
