Kirsty MacLeod is a counsellor and addictions practitioner from Dunedin, New Zealand.

She began training as an ibogaine provider after her own transformative ibogaine experience in 2012, and has since provided treatments for addiction, alongside her mentor, Tanea Paterson.

Kirsty has a particular interest in transformative psychedelic experiences and states of consciousness. She is passionate about the relationship between these experiences and creating lasting change. Kirsty is a proponent of post-treatment therapy and proper integration of the experience.

Currently working in the family violence sector, Kirsty is studying psychodrama and runs men's and women's therapy groups, as well as providing individual and relationship counselling.

Kirsty is looking to the future of ibogaine therapy in NZ and the challenges of attempting this as a mainstream treatment for addiction.
