From Teacher to Psychedelic Coach: How Psilocybin Transformed Ashley Ryan’s Life and Career

Ashley Ryan, a former teacher turned psychedelic coach, was featured on 9 News in a special report about psilocybin-assisted therapy. Psilocybin is a natural psychedelic substance found in some mushrooms that can produce profound changes in perception, mood, and cognition. Psilocybin-assisted therapy is a form of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy that uses psilocybin to help people with various health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and chronic pain. ¹²

Ashley Ryan shared her personal story of how psilocybin helped her overcome anxiety and depression, which she had struggled with since childhood. She said that psilocybin “gave me my life back” and allowed her to heal from trauma and reconnect with herself and others. She also explained how she microdoses psilocybin, which means taking a very small amount of the substance that does not cause any noticeable effects on consciousness, but rather enhances creativity, focus, and emotional balance. ¹³

Ashley Ryan is now a psychedelic coach who helps others who want to explore psilocybin-assisted therapy. She offers education, guidance, and support to people who want to use psilocybin for healing and transformation. She also advocates for psychedelic rights, including personal use and community healing using psilocybin mushrooms in Colorado and other states, as well as for more research and awareness on the benefits and risks of psychedelic substances. ³⁴
