Psychedelics can help with the goals of psychotherapy

Psychedelics allow one to think and feel things while not feeling intoxicated. The mechanisms in place that limit our perspective and perception of the world are lifted.

Our brains become more plastic and we begin to have an appetite for self-exploration.

The quality of the experience is very dependent on set and setting.

The psychedelics expand our state of consciousness to allow us to think about things and perhaps confront feelings and emotions that we long ago buried and have been avoiding for many years.

Psychedelics are another tool that when combined with journaling and psychotherapy can be very effective at processing our emotions and discovering ourselves.
