Welcome to our Psychedelic Clinic in Scotland

At our clinic, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive and innovative treatments for individuals suffering from depression. We believe in a multifaceted approach to healing, combining cutting-edge therapies with expert medical care.

Our clinic offers a range of evidence-based treatments, including ketamine therapy, psychotherapy, virtual reality (VR) therapy, breath work, and stroboscopic light therapy. These modalities work in synergy to address the root causes of mental health challenges and promote lasting recovery.

Our expert medical team is at the forefront of their fields, specializing in a variety of treatment approaches. Our doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists collaborate closely to develop personalized treatment plans for each patient. We understand that everyone’s journey to healing is unique, and we strive to provide tailored care that meets individual needs and goals.

Under the supervision of our medical professionals, ketamine is administered in a safe and controlled environment, ensuring the utmost comfort and care for our patients.

In addition to ketamine therapy, we integrate psychotherapy into our treatment protocols. Our skilled therapists utilise evidence-based techniques to help individuals explore and address underlying emotional and psychological issues. Through regular sessions, patients can gain valuable insights, develop coping strategies, and foster long-term resilience.


Transformative Approaches for Mental Well-being

Virtual reality therapy offers an immersive and transformative experience. By creating virtual environments tailored to each patient’s needs, VR therapy enables individuals to confront and overcome their fears and anxieties in a controlled and supportive setting. This innovative approach has shown great promise in augmenting traditional therapeutic techniques.

Breath work is another powerful tool we employ to promote emotional well-being. By harnessing the power of conscious breathing techniques, individuals can access deep states of relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance self-awareness. Our trained professionals guide patients through breath work sessions, empowering them to cultivate inner balance and emotional resilience.

Stroboscopic light therapy, a cutting-edge treatment, utilises rhythmic light patterns to stimulate brain activity and promote positive neural connections. This therapy has shown potential in enhancing cognitive function, mood regulation, and emotional well-being.

Throughout the treatment process, our dedicated medical team closely monitors each patient’s progress and adjusts the treatment plan as needed. We prioritise safety, privacy, and confidentiality, ensuring that individuals feel secure and supported throughout their journey.

We invite you to contact our clinic if you or someone you know is struggling with depression. Together, we can explore the transformative potential of our comprehensive treatment options and embark on a path towards lasting mental well-being.
