What is Psychedelic Coaching?

Have you ever felt like you’re just going through the motions, disconnected from your true purpose? Like there’s something more out there, but you can’t quite put your finger on it?

I know that feeling all too well. As a psychedelic coach, I’ve seen countless people struggle with this sense of unfulfillment, despite having achieved success in their lives. That’s where psychedelic coaching comes in.

Imagine having a tool that could help you break free from limiting patterns, reconnect with your authentic self, and find a renewed sense of meaning and purpose. That’s the power of psychedelic coaching.

Sarah’s Story

Take Sarah, for example. She was a high-powered executive, with a prestigious job and a comfortable lifestyle. From the outside, it seemed like she had it all together. But deep down, Sarah felt like something was missing.

She tried all the usual approaches – therapy, self-help books, meditation – but nothing seemed to stick. That’s when she decided to give psychedelic coaching a try.

When Sarah first came to me, I could see the weariness in her eyes. She was tired of putting on a brave face and pretending everything was okay. Through our initial conversations, we explored her values, her dreams, and the patterns that were holding her back. It became clear that Sarah had been prioritizing her career over her own well-being and had lost touch with what truly mattered to her.

Together, we began the preparation phase of the psychedelic coaching process. We worked on setting intentions for her psilocybin journey, discussing what she hoped to gain from the experience and what she was willing to let go of.

As we dug deeper, Sarah realized that she had been carrying a lot of guilt and shame around her work-life balance. She felt like she was constantly letting someone down – whether it was her family, her friends, or herself.

During the guided psilocybin session, Sarah had a profound realization. As the truffles took hold, she saw her life from a bird’s eye view. She realized that she had been living on autopilot, going through the motions without truly being present.

At that moment, Sarah knew that something had to change. For the first time in years, she saw her priorities clearly and felt a deep sense of connection to her authentic self.

Integration was key to helping Sarah translate these insights into lasting change. In our coaching sessions following the psilocybin journey, we worked on creating a new vision for her life – one that aligned with her values and her true purpose.

Sarah began setting boundaries at work, making time for self-care and the people she loved. She started pursuing hobbies and interests that she had neglected for years, rediscovering a sense of joy and creativity that had been missing from her life.

Through the psychedelic coaching process, Sarah was able to break free from the patterns that had been holding her back and step into a new way of being. She found a renewed sense of purpose and fulfilment, both in her career and in her personal life.

Sarah’s story is a powerful reminder of the transformative potential of psychedelic coaching. By combining the wisdom of psychedelics with the guidance and support of a skilled coach, we can unlock our full potential and live a life that truly aligns with our deepest values and aspirations.

The Psychedelic Coaching Process

At FLO Coaching, we approach psychedelic coaching as a three-part process: preparation (3x 60-75 minutes online), the guided psilocybin session (a full day), and integration (3x 60-75 minutes online). Each stage plays a crucial role in ensuring a safe, meaningful, and transformative experience.

Preparation is all about setting the groundwork. In our coaching sessions leading up to the psilocybin journey, we dive deep into your values, beliefs, and the patterns that might be holding you back. We’ll explore your intentions for the experience and create a safe, supportive space for you to open up and be vulnerable.

This preparation phase is like packing your bags before a big trip. You want to make sure you have everything you need, and that you’re mentally and emotionally ready for the journey ahead.

When the day of the psilocybin session arrives, we’ll guide you through the experience with care and expertise. As the effects of the psilocybin take hold, you’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with your authentic self, free from the constraints of your everyday mind.

It’s like pressing the reset button on your brain, allowing you to see things from a fresh perspective. Many people report profound insights, emotional breakthroughs, and a renewed sense of purpose during these sessions.

But the journey doesn’t end there. Integration is perhaps the most important part of the process. In our coaching sessions following the psilocybin experience, we’ll help you make sense of your insights and translate them into concrete actions you can take in your daily life.

We’ll work together to create new habits and patterns that align with your values and your newfound clarity. This is where the real transformation happens – when you start living in alignment with your true self, day in and day out.

Like a Fresh Layer of Snow

I like to think of the mind as a ski slope. Over time, as we go through life, we create deep grooves in the snow – these are our habits, our patterns, and our limiting beliefs. We get stuck in these grooves, skiing down the same path over and over again, even if it doesn’t take us where we want to go.

Psychedelic coaching is like a fresh blanket of snow on the ski slope. Suddenly, the old grooves are covered up, and we have the opportunity to create new tracks – ones that align with our true values and desires.

But here’s the thing: if we don’t consciously choose our path, we’ll eventually fall back into those old grooves. That’s where coaching comes in. A skilled coach can help you identify the tracks you want to create and guide you as you make them.

With each run down the slope, your new path becomes clearer and more defined. You start to see your life from a different perspective – one that is more authentic, more fulfilling, and more joyful.

The ski slope analogy reminds us that change is possible, but it takes effort and intention. By combining the fresh powder of psychedelics with the guidance of coaching, we can break free from our limiting patterns and create a life that truly reflects our deepest desires.

Benefits of Psychedelic Coaching

So, what can psychedelic coaching actually do for you? The benefits are numerous and far-reaching, touching every aspect of your life.

First and foremost, psychedelic coaching can help you break free from patterns and habits that no longer serve you. Whether it’s a limiting belief about yourself, a negative relationship pattern, or a way of living that doesn’t align with your values, psychedelics can help you see these patterns clearly and find the courage to let them go.

In doing so, you’ll rediscover your true self – the part of you that is authentic, creative, and full of potential. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of your own mind and emotions, and learn to trust your intuition and inner wisdom.

This newfound self-awareness can translate into greater confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love. You may find that you’re able to communicate more effectively, set healthier boundaries, and build more meaningful relationships with others.

Psychedelic coaching can also help you find a renewed sense of purpose and meaning in life. By connecting with your deepest values and aspirations, you’ll gain clarity on what truly matters to you and what kind of impact you want to make in the world.

Many people also report improvements in their overall well-being after psychedelic coaching. You may find that you feel more joyful, more connected, and less weighed down by stress and negative emotions. While psychedelic coaching is not a substitute for medical treatment, it can be a powerful tool for enhancing your mental and emotional health.

Ultimately, the benefits of psychedelic coaching are as unique as each individual who experiences it. But one thing is clear: by combining the profound insights of psychedelics with the guidance and support of a skilled coach, you can unlock your full potential and create a life that is truly extraordinary.

However, these risks are minimal when the experience is guided by a trained professional in a safe and supportive setting.

How does psychedelic coaching differ from traditional therapy?

Psychedelic coaching is a unique approach that combines the insights and wisdom of psychedelics with the guidance and support of coaching. While traditional therapy tends to focus on past experiences and mental health diagnoses, psychedelic coaching is more focused on personal growth, self-discovery, and creating a fulfilling future.

We’ll help you translate these insights into concrete actions and changes you can make in your daily life, so that you can sustain the benefits of the experience over time.

How many sessions are recommended for psychedelic coaching?

The number of sessions recommended varies depending on your individual needs and goals. Most people find that a single psilocybin session, combined with preparation and integration coaching, is sufficient to catalyze significant changes in their lives. Others may benefit from a series of sessions over months of time to work through deeper patterns and create lasting transformation.

Is psychedelic coaching right for everyone?

While psychedelic coaching can be a powerful tool for personal growth and transformation, it may not be appropriate for everyone. Individuals with certain mental health conditions, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, may be at higher risk for adverse experiences. Additionally, psychedelic coaching requires a willingness to be open, vulnerable, and committed to the process of self-discovery and change. If you have any concerns about whether psychedelic coaching is right for you, we encourage you to speak with us to discuss your individual needs and circumstances.
