Psychedelic therapy

Psilocybin session

Therapy while tripping

Psychedelic therapy is becoming increasingly popular Triptherapy named. During this form of therapy, psychedelic tripping agents are used such as ayahuasca, DMT, LSD, MDMA or psilocybin from mushrooms/magic truffles. After ingesting these substances, perception changes and the journey inwards is started under the guidance of an expert. Because the brain temporarily works in a different way, much better results are generally achieved than regular therapy. These psychedelic sessions work even better if a preparation plan is drawn up in advance.

Each psychedelic has a different effect and is used in different areas. For example, psilocybin is more often used for depression and MDMA offers good prospects for treating PTSD and anxiety complaints. In this article we explain which psychedelics are legal to use in the Netherlands and what the alternatives are to some well-known psychedelics that are illegal.

Therapy with psychedelics

Psychedelics are also known as plant medicine. Plant medicines have been used for thousands of years by various indigenous peoples around the world for therapeutic, spiritual and healing purposes. This goes back further than the scientific discovery of psychedelic substances such as ayahuasca, LSD and psilocybin in the twentieth century. The earliest known plant medicines were probably magic mushrooms (psilocybin), cannabis and hemp. In South America, ayahuasca was traditionally used by indigenous shamans as medicine and as part of spiritual rituals. Native tribes in North America also used mushrooms and peyote to contact spiritual forces.

Through scientific research and the invention of new substances in the laboratory, there is increasing awareness of the healing potential of these old classic psychedelics and new psychedelic substances such as MDMA and various derivatives. Although research shows promising results, many psychedelic substances are illegal and psychedelic therapy is not considered a medical treatment in 2024.

Individual therapy, duo session or ceremony?

Psychedelic therapy can be used in various areas. It is becoming increasingly common for couples to book a duo session as relationship therapy or as personal growth that starts at the same time. However, most people opt for individual sessions if the psychedelic session has a therapeutic nature. It is also possible to participate in psychedelic ceremonies for groups such as a truffle ceremony or an MDMA group session.

When making a choice, it is important to consider personal preference.

Psychedelics with therapeutic value

There are many substances that fall under psychedelic drugs and there are too many to mention them all. Some psychedelics are seen more as party drugs and others have great potential to be used as therapeutic tools during psychedelic therapy. In our overview we provide a list of the most potent and better-known substances for use during psychedelic therapy.

Psilocybin therapy

Our psilocybin sessions are based on magic truffles, part of the magic mushrooms. This is the only way we can legally offer these sessions in the Netherlands. These sessions will be truffle session mentioned or truffle therapy. They are all different names with the same meaning. Psilocybin is the substance that, after conversion to psilocin, provides the effects of this psychedelic. Psilocybin is mainly used for depression, addictions and social anxiety. Psilocybin is the all-rounder because psilocybin can also be used for trauma and PTSD provided the preparation is in order. More and more people are choosing psilocybin to experience creativity and spirituality. Another advantage is that during psilocybin sessions there are multiple doses from microdosing to a heroic dose where the visual hallucinations and other effects vary from almost none to very much.

MDMA therapy

MDMA therapy is mainly used for PTSD and trauma. The MDMA sessions have little or no visual hallucinations, but generally give feelings of euphoria and empathy while you can talk about negative experiences in the past without blocking. An MDMA session is seen as a gigantic accelerator of exposure therapy. MDMA sessions in the Netherlands can only take place with legal analogues, these are substances with a modified molecular structure and approximately the same effect.

LSD therapy

During the LSD sessions we use a legal analogue of LSD that is converted into regular LSD after ingestion by the body. This way we can legally perform the LSD session. The LSD sessions last much longer than all other psychedelic sessions and that is why we only recommend these sessions if there is already some experience with the effects of other hallucinogenic psychedelics and the long-lasting effects are desired. The effects of an LSD session are mainly used in the treatment of addictions, for creativity and to a lesser extent for depression and social anxiety.

DMT therapy and ayahuasca

Ayahuasca is a very well-known plant medicine from the Amazon and contains DMT. Due to the presence of DMT, ayahuasca is illegal in the Netherlands. We offer alternatives in the form of higher dose psilocybin sessions or psiloflora for people who want to use the healing and spiritual properties of DMT or ayahausca.

Psiloflora is a combination of psilocybin and the mild MAO inhibitory flower of the passion flower. The mild MAO inhibitory and soothing properties provide a stronger and longer inward journey than psilocybin alone. Due to the extended duration and the enhanced trip, psiloflora is only recommended for people who have had previous psychedelic experiences. Psiloflora can be used for the same reasons as psilocybin, but the emphasis is slightly more on inducing a spiritual experience.
