A form of therapy combining psychedelic substances and an individualized therapeutic approach. While this is a newer form of therapy, it is worth noting that psychedelic plant medicines have been used by indigenous cultures for healing for over 20,000 years!
At Soul Connections, we have streamlined our process to include the following steps:
1. Intake call including screening to assess the client's eligibility for these sessions.
2. Client meets with both Janet and Brittany to begin preparatory sessions (4-6) that assist in fostering a trusting therapeutic relationship and rapport. During the preparation, we will go through a thorough intake, provide psychoeducation, clarify client intentions, discuss client expectations, and answer any questions the client may have.
3. Janet and Brittany provide in person support and aid in the navigation of the client's psychedelic journey (8-12 hours). During the experience, the client is provided with different tools (e.g., eyeshades) to help facilitate a deep, healing experience.
4. Janet and Brittany support and aid in the integration of the client's psychedelic journey (3 sessions minimum). We assist in transmuting the client's experience into wisdom through meaning making and understanding the lessons provided so that they may be embodied in one's day to day life.
*Psychedelic therapy is not a "one and done" experience, as deep, lasting healing and transformation can require more than one psychedelic journey. You are free to repeat this experience with us as many times as needed.
We offer a mixture of online and offline counselling where applicable. Counselling sessions, hypnotherapy, and preparation/integration sessions are all offered online via video conferencing software. Psychedelic Psychotherapy sessions are only completed in person either in Lethbridge, AB or we can travel to you.
Yes! We offer individual and couples counselling for a variety of mental health concerns (see our About Us section for specific areas of practice).

Brittany also offers Clinical Counselling Hypnotherapy. If you'd like to inquire about any of our services, reach out to us here.
