ABOUT ME

My name is Barbara Camarao and I am a transpersonal psychologist. I was born in Brazil and grew up in Germany where I studied clinical psychology and later worked with people who suffered from mental illness. Having had a history of depression and anxiety myself I understand mental illness from both sides.

It has been frustrating for me to see that conventional, modern psychiatry and psychotherapy are oftentimes not enough in healing deep psychological wounds. Because of that I turned to other unconventional methods such as the exploration of ayahuasca and its effects. My mental state has significantly improved and I feel confident in saying that now with the help of psychedelics and transpersonal psychotherapy I am depression-free.

Convinced of these methods I myself have become a transpersonal psychologist and my mission now is helping people with mental illnesses that also have experienced or at least are interested in working with altered states of consciousness.
