Psyon’s Mission

The establishment of our clinic has been a natural outcome of the “global renaissance” of interest in the research on the therapeutic use of psychedelics. Its founding was made possible by years of scientific research conducted by leading experts in the field, particularly Jiří Horáček, Tomáš Páleníček and their teams. Psyon – Psychedelic Clinic is a psychotherapy-oriented centre that focuses on the innovative use of psychedelics in the treatment of mental health issues and in personal growth and development.


Psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy (PAP):

As part of the expanding global interest in the therapeutic potential of psychedelics among medical professionals, Psyon also functions as a healthcare facility offering the so-called psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy (PAP), doing so in accordance with the applicable law. We currently work with ketamine using the framework of ketamine-assisted therapy.


Psychedelics – psychological support and assistance:

We provide psychological help for complications and issues that may have arisen out of previous use of psychedelic substances. We offer professional help with the so-called integration process of the experience.



Psychotherapeutic counselling:

We also provide standard psychotherapeutic counselling covering a broad spectrum of situations and difficulties that people can encounter in their lives. Our therapists employ an extensive range of psychotherapeutic styles and approaches.

Our therapists

What we have brought together is a community of psychotherapists who have special expertise in the field of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. In addition to that, our therapists regularly work with clients in need of integration following a difficult psychedelic experience. Many of our specialists have completed unique certified international training courses, assuring the highest standard in their work with clients. These courses include the Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies and Research (CPTR) at the Centre for Psychedelic Therapies and Research of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), which has already acquired a “legendary” status among psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy training courses. Many of our therapists have also completed the MDMA Therapy Training Program for PTSD (MAPS, USA and Europe), Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (Polaris Insight Center, USA), and the European-based training in psilocybin-assisted therapy for depression (Compass Pathways). Some have also participated as field workers in the PsyCare harm reduction programme provided by the Czech Psychedelic Society (CZEPS) and in psychedelic research projects at NÚDZ.

History of Psyon – Psychedelic Clinic

Psychedelic renaissance
A group of researchers including Jiří Horáček and Tomáš Páleníček revives the field of psychedelic research on human subjects at the Czech National Institute of Mental Health (NÚDZ), roughly 40 years after the ban was imposed on such psychedelic research in the former Czechoslovakia.
The idea of actually creating a specialized clinic comes about during Stanislav Milotinský’s and Filip Tylš’s participation in the Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies and Research Programme at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) in the USA.
Company “Psychedelická klinika, s.r.o.” is established with the support of the Miton investment group.
Therapeutic centre in Prague opens under the name Psyon – Psychedelic Clinic.
Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy


We respect and honour previous generations of pioneering professionals who helped pave the way for what we do now. 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:
“Dr. Tylš is known and highly respected in the rapidly expanding community of researchers and clinicians who are exploring the potential of psychedelic substances in medical treatment and the alleviation of human suffering.  Personally, I value our collegial relationship, past and present.  With his colleagues in the Czech Republic, he is carefully blazing a trail that is likely to transform mental health care for many persons and conditions.“
