What role does the MDMA therapist play?

An MDMA therapist plays a crucial role during an MDMA session, integrating the use of MDMA into a therapeutic context. Here are some key aspects of what an MDMA therapist does during such a session:

Preparation and screening

  • During registration, it is checked whether the customer is suitable for MDMA therapy. This includes checking medications, medical history and any contraindications. This is done by a permanent employee.
  • Personal advice in preparation for the session is given to the customer.
  • The therapist discusses the client's expectations, intentions and goals before the MDMA session.

The MDMA session

  • The therapist remains with the client throughout the entire session. The therapist supports the client emotionally and helps where necessary.
  • The MDMA therapist sometimes emphasizes that the client can focus on inner experiences, emotions and thoughts that arise.
  • If fear or tension arises, the therapist helps the patient to deal with this and feel safe again.
  • If applicable, some exposure therapy is performed.

The integration

  • Immediately after the session, the MDMA therapist helps the client process the experience. This may mean talking together about what happened, expressing feelings and sharing insights.
  • The therapist helps the patient to integrate the lessons and insights learned into their daily life. This help can take place a few days to weeks after the MDMA session
  • After a period of three to four weeks, we will discuss together whether an additional MDMA session could be useful.
