How To Become A Psychedelic Therapist

Are you looking to explore a career in psychedelic-assisted therapy? Numinus provides certification pathway options and courses for folks from all backgrounds and levels of experience.

Where Do You Start?

Numinus has carefully curated a certification pathway with busy practitioners in mind, to provide best-in-class training for adult learners looking to expand their skills in providing psychedelic services.

The pathway is broken up into cohorts, in order to provide flexible scheduling options and to meet the pace of our learners. This also means that our learners will receive certificates for each component of the pathway they complete and can pause or stop their progress in sync with their own learning goals and needs.

Our learners should start with the Fundamentals of Psychedelic Assisted Therapy and begin planning which medicine(s) they want to work with, from either ketamine, MDMA, and psilocybin.
