Starting Your Practice
Online course

This course is intended to help you start a professional psychedelic therapy/guiding practice. It does not teach or prepare you to become a psychedelic guide. It will help you create a sustainable business and it offers best practices working as a professional in this field.

About The Course

We created this course to help trained psychedelic guides and therapists set up a professional practice. Many of the people we train through Phoenix Academy come from the healing professions: MD, nurse, psychotherapist, psychologist, RMT, nutritionist, pastor, ND, chiropractor, etc. We also train lay people. In watching alumni setting up their own practices we understood that not everyone is a natural born entrepreneur and many struggle to put practices in place to create their practice.

This course brings you the best practices in business and guidance so you will set up on the right foot and build a strong foundation under you. We support you on your journey by connecting you to a valuable peer network and free resources. A separate workbook is included with this course to help you get the most out of it. All of your work is in one place which will make it easier to define your business.

Starting Your Practice is divided into two sections: Business Skills and Best Practices. You can dive into the course depending on what you feel like learning first.

This course is intended to help you start a psychedelic practice once you have been trained to work with clients and medicine.  It does not teach or prepare you to become a psychedelic guide.
