The Importance of Talk Therapy

Talk therapy, also known as psychotherapy or counseling, is a form of mental health treatment that involves talking to a trained therapist about your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. It is a well-known form of mental health care and is an excellent practice to release emotions and talk with an unbiased person about your challenges or life circumstances. Talk therapy is an effective way to take care of your mental health, overcome roadblocks that you seem to be stuck on, and promote overall well-being.

Field Trip’s Online Therapy Program

At Field Trip, we combine the power of talk therapy with the transcendent experience of psychedelic medicine to supercharge your healing. If you don’t feel ready to embark on a journey that involves medicine work and non-ordinary states of consciousness, you can still take steps to improve your mental health with our new Online Therapy program. This offering provides virtual counseling sessions from a team trained from our network of psychedelic therapy clinics. Psychedelics foster an approach to therapy that is open, compassionate, connected and non-judgmental, and this spirit is what we carry throughout all of our services. 

Who is it for? 

Contrary to some of our other offerings, Field Trip’s Online Therapy is not just for people who are dealing with serious mental health issues. Our virtual counseling is for anyone looking to develop healthy coping mechanisms, improve your relationships with others and yourself, and achieve your personal or professional goals. Those who’ve had their own psychedelic explorations outside of Field Trip and in need of therapeutic support to process their experiences can benefit from this service as well. This is called integration.


One of the key benefits of talk therapy is that it helps individuals gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their problems by talking it out with a therapist. Through this process of self-exploration and diving deep into your thoughts and feelings, you and your therapist work to identify patterns of behavior that may be causing you distress. This self-awareness can be a powerful tool in promoting change and healing. While better understanding yourself is always a positive thing, traditional talk therapy is oftentimes focused on only the mind, ignoring the physical and spiritual aspects of ourselves which can prevent us from more effective healing. 

Our Online Therapy is a new approach to talk therapy that addresses you as a whole human with many complex and interconnected parts. We develop a holistic and therapeutic plan that incorporates a variety of practices such as meditation, breathwork, somatic release, and visualization techniques, to enhance your psychological, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. With your unique journey in mind, Field Trip’s Online Therapy team tailors their approach to fit your specific needs using their training and wide range of therapy styles. Through this personalized approach, you’re more likely to see an impact - they help find what works for you! 

Talk therapy also provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to process and express their emotions. The therapist's role is to actively and compassionately listen, as well as, offer guidance that is unbiased and considered based on their expertise. This environment encourages clients to share thoughts and feelings that they might be reluctant to talk about with friends or family. Talk therapy leads to a sense of relief, validation and emotional processing that is vital for emotional healing. However, there are times where you don’t feel connected to your therapist - and that can be normal. It may be an uncomfortable experience to switch therapists, and at Field Trip we have taken this into consideration. If you don’t feel right about your therapist after your first session, we will help you find another therapist on our roster and give you your next session for free.

Talk therapy is an important tool for maintaining and improving your mental health, and we have created Field Trip Online Therapy because we feel that you deserve a new approach to your mental health. It is more than just talk therapy - it’s a non-ordinary approach to personal growth that leverages contemporary styles of therapy and wellness tools to heal your mind, body, and spirit.
