Sonia Doulton, Howie Whitehouse, Damla Gungor

Sonia Doulton is an integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor who has worked with mental health in London, UK and Auckland, NZ, in both private practice and in the public sector. As an integrative therapist Sonia has always been curious about what else can be therapeutic beyond the traditional psychotherapy models, and in fact her Masters dissertation research was an exploration of the therapeutic potential of acting. Being passionate about psychedelics, Sonia has been investigating how non-ordinary states of consciousness can be therapeutic and facilitate healing and self-actualization. She believes that psychedelic practices, with the right set and setting, can produce unprecedented results in the field of psychiatry. Sonia is a graduate of the program Psychedelic-assisted Therapy and Research at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), she works in a ketamine-assisted clinic and runs her online international psychotherapy, counseling and coaching practice.
