    Vass mainly utilises the psychodynamic modality to increase self-awareness and better understand the effect of the past on present behaviour. Throughout therapy, the focus is on how thoughts, feelings, and actions are interconnected and how they form habits that drive our behaviour.

    I work with individuals through the psychodynamic modality, with the aim of increasing self-awareness and better understanding the effect of the past on present behaviour. Over the course of therapy, we examine how thoughts, feelings, and actions are interrelated, and how they systemically form habits that drive our behaviour.

    Psychedelic assisted psychotherapy using psilocybin and MDMA is currently only available via a Special Access Scheme (SAS-B). Vass offers psychedelic harm reduction and integration for people who use psychedelics until these medicines are reclassified for therapeutic use. This can help individuals plan, prepare and gain insight and meaning from psychedelic experiences.
