In recent years, Zia has also supported clients during their psychedelic journeys at a Ketamine clinics, preceded by preparation sessions, and following up with integration sessions.
Many of you are exploring or considering psychedelic substances due to recent FDA trials showing success of psychedelics in tandem with experienced guidance or psychotherapy to alleviate symptoms of PTSD, anxiety and depression. In addition, in some places there has been a de-prioritizing or decriminalization of certain substances for therapeutic or personal use, such as psilocybin or “magic mushrooms:”.
Some of you may or may or may not be aware that there are alternative methods (such as intense breath work that can create Psychedelic states of release and healing for breaking through mental, emotional, physical or spiritual “blockages”. Zia also teaches these methods of psychedelic journeying
Zia, the founder of Soul Kintsugi™ therapy method, has helped clients who have complained that they’ve had good psychedelic experiences but the effects didn’t last. Or worse, they had bad experiences they are recovering from and sought Zia’s help. Zia has helped both those types of clients heal. She also successfully helps those of you who are curious and seeking safety information and guidance for optimal results. Zia’s guidance is based on the Harm Reduction model and thorough experience as a guide.
Some of the many successful results of Zia’s clients have experienced from her Journeys Program have included reduced symptoms or complete cessation of symptoms of complex PTSD, cessation of symptoms of depression, reduced anxiety, and access to a spiritual inner source, discovery of more purpose and connection, and a persistent feeling of belonging in the world, a renewed or new sense that life has a deeper meaning. Zia’s journey package includes assessment, coaching, guidance, and integration approaches to help you decide which path is right for you and to what extent you want to involve mind-altering modalities which range from breathing exercises, self-hypnotic exercises, sensation focus exercises, movement and vocalization, to ingesting mood altering plants or your medication prescribed by your psychiatrist or doctor, such as Ketamine. Sometimes specific breath-work techniques alone or combined with movement and guided visual and auditory journeys, fasting and other methods can be as intense and healing medicine without the chemical psychedelics. Sometimes micro-dosing may be more helpful for some people than a large dose. There are also many legal plants that offer subtler and more easy-going mood-altering effects that can be appropriate for people who want another approach
All of the above should be approached with caution, and Zia helps you weigh the risks vs. benefits.
