About Paul Menze
My name is Paul Menze and my mission is to help others maximize the beneficial effects of psychedelic experiences. I offer specialized coaching services with a focus on proper preparation and integration. Since the end of the nineties, I have organized sessions with Psilocybin truffles, Salvia Divinorum, Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and other psychedelics in small groups.
In 2002, I completed my Master’s of Psychology, specializing in the field of drugs and addictions at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. There, I conducted research on the safety of Psilocybin and wrote my thesis on Ayahuasca in ritual and therapeutic settings. After my studies, I worked for two rehab clinics and started my private practice in 2005.
After years of therapeutic work, my focus shifted to helping healthy and resourceful people develop more awareness and structure around the life they truly want to live. I became an accredited master coach in 2019 and started offering my services online. Besides working as a psychologist and a coach, I’m developing a farming project in the Sao Mamede National Park in Portugal.
Paul Menze's approach to integration
I developed my unique way of coaching based on my background in psychology, therapy, coaching, meditation, and breathwork. I also draw on my own experiences of using psychedelics for professional, personal, and spiritual growth for over 25 years. I will be there along the way to provide guidance and confidence, with the understanding that a large part of creating lasting change depends on your intrinsic motivation, quality of attention, and willingness to change and invest your time wisely.
Sessions are designed to help you develop the trust, strength, and feeling of security necessary for an effective and purposeful journey of growth and change.
You will also receive guidance on having the best possible integration of this experience in the weeks afterwards.
We will use the first four sessions to get insight into your values, personality structure, mission and vision in life, current life circumstances, and goals for the future. We will also identify any obstacles in your belief system which may prevent you from receiving the full benefits of the experience. Of course, we will discuss your expectations for the experience and make sure that you are in the right mental state beforehand. We will also design a personalized plan for the four integration sessions following the psychedelic experience in order to translate and integrate the insights from the trip into your daily life.
