Kosu Boudreau

Team Lead & Psychotherapist

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ― Anais Nin”

Her Role

Kosu is a registered trauma psychotherapist and integration specialist in a private practice in Ontario, Canada. She worked for more than 18 years as a spiritual care therapist in hospitals with a focus on trauma, mental health/addictions, and palliative care. Kosu provides trauma-informed facilitation as well as preparation and integration support for Beckley Retreats guests.

Her Story

Kosu has three graduate degrees in psychotherapy, social work, and theology. She is also a certified yoga teacher, an ordained Buddhist chaplain, and a student of Movement Medicine. Kosu graduated from the psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy program at the Integrative Psychiatry Institute (IPI) in 2020 and has extensive training in experiential, psychodynamic, existential, and somatic therapies. People tell Kosu she has a warm, grounded presence and a robust sense of humor.

Her Why

Kosu is a passionate believer that “the truth can set you free.” Prior to psychedelics, she had experiences of awakening through meditation and embodied movement. Kosu returned to school at 54 years old to complete a Master of Social Work with a desire to focus on social change. Once she discovered the transformative power of plant medicine, she decided to dedicate the rest of her life to working with these medicines, to alleviate suffering, facilitate change, and support collective liberation.
