    Lani will share her lived experience and insights from the field of psychedelic education which has lead her to create the EMPATHS Integrative Psychedelic Somatic Psychotherapy. EISP is a trans-diagnostic approach to therapy that can be utilised with cannabis and/or ketamine or a as a stand-alone non-medicine process. Lani has created EISP as it draws upon modern clinical theory and ancient wisdom traditions and is tailored to each person’s therapeutic needs. This approach draws upon the somatic, relational, transpersonal, and metacognitive domains. The client is supported to explore parts, shadow work, legacy burdens and their wider relational field within the context of attachment, trauma informed therapy, and metacognitive enhancement. Metacognitive skill development is paired with attachment informed care. EISP is grounded in Dan Browns 5 pillars of attachment which can support meaning making, and the stabilisation of embodied behavioural change. 

    Lani supports the client to be present with arising sensations by voluntarily reducing defence mechanisms and copying techniques that have built up across a lifetime.This process is called Selective Inhibition, which is utilised across many modalities throughout somatic and therapeutic literature. The approach supports clients to drop into their primary consciousness and experience raw autonomic nervous system states such as flight fight, freeze, fawn and dissociate) and helps the client bring association to their specific nervous system states, unresolved trauma and defence mechanism. During the process, the client may experience somatic releases in the form of somatic waves, emotional releases, non-verbal memories, transpersonal connections, and insight.Sustained eye contact can be utilised to help evoke and explore both negative and positive transference. Client consent contracts are created, and all sessions can be recorded for safety and quality assurance. The depth of this work can only be achieved if both the client and therapist are building a solid foundation of safety.
