Interview on MDMA therapy by the New Review
At the request of Nieuwe Revu, we collaborated on an interview about psychedelic sessions. We cooperated because Triptherapy is the first provider of MDMA sessions in the Netherlands. The interview should be mainly about the MDMA sessions we offer, what the reasons are of the clients and what kind of results these sessions produce. Furthermore, we would have space to tell a bit about the different forms of trip therapy and explain our working method.
The New Revu article is called "Tripping as Therapy" and is available in stores this week (week 11).
Below is only part of article. The online version will come out later and we will share the link to the online article later.
Marcel and Linda contributed to this article. You can read more about Marcel and Linda at the links below.
A piece of the article
Millennials with climate anxiety, lonely young people, 70-somethings with compulsive disorders or anxiety, burn-out cases, people with PTSD or mood swings, or just people
with no unambiguous complaints, but looking for "something new" or "spiritual enrichment. Marcel and Linda see quite a mixed audience come by every week. 'Nine out of ten
people feel helped by us. New insights, self-knowledge and less trouble from their complaints are the most frequently heard experiences.' Linda: 'We experience such wonderful things here. A man who had been disgusted with his body all his life only realized during his trip that he had been abused as a small boy and that he was actually homosexual. An enormous revelation. After just one session the man was able to move on with his life. How beautiful is that? The beautiful stories seem endless. Some people cry for the first time in their lives. Others want to go right back to their families, to tell them how much they love them. Some people need an arm around their shoulder, a hug, to be comforted or feel security. Beforehand, we set clear boundaries about the degree of interaction between the client and us.' Group sessions they also do. 'Some people enjoy undergoing such a new and, for some, exciting experience together with others,' Marcel says. 'For others, on the other hand, it is very private and intimate.'
Other media coverage
We have previously collaborated on podcasts, news articles and interviews. We do this because we believe it is important that psychedelic therapy is allowed to become better known and mainstream. See older articles, etc. below.
