His clinical approach is about providing individualised, bespoke care and believes that optimising the therapeutic relationship and understanding the whole person, rather than just the diagnosis, are essential in improving long-term emotional and mental health, and in improving performance and wellbeing. In this talk, he will explore possible avenues by which psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy may in the future assist such a holistic treatment approach.
