To introduce psychedelic-assisted therapy
as a commonly available treatment option. In a safe, professional and kind way.
Psyon is part of the worldwide renaissance of psychedelic research and it offers high-quality standard as well as progressive approaches to mental health care. Our approach is based on three main pillars - psychedelic-assisted therapy, standard psychiatric and psychotherapeutic care, education and research
We are the first health care facility in Europe to offer psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy in full compliance with the legislative framework. This follows a worldwide increase in the interest of the professional community in the therapeutic use of psychedelics. We currently offer ketamine-assisted psychotherapy for self-payers as well as for the clients of contracted insurance companies.
Standard psychiatric and psychotherapeutic care
Diversity of care and respect for well-established, well-functioning therapies is inherent in our approach. Therefore, we offer standard care in psychiatry, clinical psychology and psychotherapy. In line with our expertise, we also focus on psychological help for complications and difficulties that have developed in connection with previous unprofessional use of psychedelic substances.
Education and research
Due to the current renaissance of psychedelic therapy and research, the need for qualified personnel is increasing significantly. We will, therefore, soon start offering training in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy and courses involving theory as well as practice. The members of our team have completed a number of international certified training courses and are involved in innovative research on psychedelics, so they are more than familiar with the most recent clinical and scientific findings in the field.
Trust and safety
The Psyon Team
We are a multidisciplinary team of doctors, psychologists and researchers in the fields of mental health. Many of our therapists have completed unique internationally certified training to ensure their work meets the highest standards. We have many years of experience in research and clinical practice, publish articles in scientific journals, speak at conferences, and some of us teach university courses. With us, you are in the best hands.
We respect and honour previous generations of pioneering professionals who helped to pave the way for what we do. These are our mentors, people who have had significant influence on the way we work and whose legacy has helped us find and hold a steady course.
