Trauma Informed & Creativity Coach
Hi, my name is Sedef. I am humbled by the opportunity to guide individuals like you on their journey towards self-realization. As a certified coach, sound healer, psychedelic integration practitioner and musician my commitment is to assist you in overcoming any challenges you may face before and after your psychedelic experience. My current focus is on trauma, studying with Dr. Gabor Mate to specialize in this area.
I believe when we can look at who we are and what we need from a place of authenticity, compassion, and connectedness, we begin to thrive as fully expressed beings.
Growing up in a family where ancient teachings and wisdom were an important part of our daily conversations, I became fascinated with those teachings.
When I was 12 years old, I came upon a book in my mother’s library that talked about a story of a metaphysical journey home. It marked the start of my journey to the world of mysticism and that journey sparked my curiosity to delve deeper into this enigmatic realm, and it has never failed to inspire me to openly and curiously explore the inner and outer worlds, beyond time and space.
My first encounter with plant medicines started in 2004. Later in my life, I was going through a challenging time, and Ayahuasca started to come into my awareness. In 2017, I had my first ceremony and as I gained exposure to further psychedelics I understood that the use of psychedelics in therapy is not a one-size-fits-all answer.
I needed deep integration to truly grasp the benefits of this intense, overwhelming, and transformative experience. After my first experience, I felt alienated since few individuals shared this experience. That’s why I believe it’s crucial to find ways of integrating the thoughts, feelings, and experiences you have while on psychedelics into your everyday life.
The psychedelic experience can have a powerful transformative effect on how we view ourselves and the world around us. Returning to everyday life can seem challenging, and an integration practice can help transform the individual awareness gained from psychedelic experiences into the present everyday life. This process is an important part of psychedelic-assisted therapy, and the person needs to take an active role in it to get the most out of the experience.
I believe preparing for a psychedelic experience lays the groundwork for your journey. It demonstrates respect for the process and dedication to your recovery, as well as preparing your body to take the medicine. I was stunned to find out that the journey begins, in truth, with the phase of preparation as each of my preparation phases was so profound and filled with insights that I was fascinated. I hold this stage of the process in the highest respect.
This process can be challenging and confusing. I’m here to help you prepare for this experience by focusing on your diet, intentions, thought patterns, and tools to use during the ceremony to help it flow more smoothly, profoundly, and connectedly.
I intend to engage you in a deep integration & preparation by creating a calm space with an open heart.
Sedef's approach to integration
My approach delves into the profound interplay of embodiment, mindfulness practices, mindset work, and tangible, grounded action. It is through this combination that you will rediscover, release, heal, and reconnect, ultimately walking your path with greater freedom and care. I believe that compassionate and trust-filled conversations enable us to express and reconnect with our truth and experiences on a deeper level.
This journey is an exploration of your life experience, body sensations, feelings, and emotions. It is an invitation to embrace wholeness, confidence, and personal power. As your guide, I will provide the support and tools necessary for you to transcend limitations and step into your authentic self. By embracing your true nature, you embark on a transformative path of self-discovery, personal growth, and profound fulfilment.
I believe that you were born with wisdom and answers within your own body, and I will help you bring them to light. Together, we will navigate the depths of your being, exploring the realms of trauma and healing. By working hand in hand, we will uncover the hidden gems within your soul and transform them into radiant sources of strength and resilience.
We will unravel the intricate connections between your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, unlocking the keys to your personal well-being and happiness. Let us embark on this transformative adventure, where every obstacle becomes an opportunity for growth and every setback becomes a stepping stone towards your uniqueness.
