Dan Silvestri

Who are you?
And where are you on your journey?

Hiring a Life Coach or Hypnotherapist may be a last attempt at finally gaining some peace of mind, and living a meaningful life. Like many other peoples stories, I wasn't getting very far with therapy, councelling or self-study alone. I wanted to gain practical skills and tools, as well as understanding my emotional world, with better awareness, to move forward with my life after trauma, and learn how I could apply this to support me in the real world and in my life.


Learning how to relax, how to tune up my awareness, both inwards and in my life, and how to befriend and work in line with my inner world, is where I recognised the deep power of mindfulness, meditation and compassion, and along with coaching skills and hypnotherapy, I finally discovered how to slow down, relax, understand my emotional mapping, work through my traumas, discover an inner peace, build deeper relationships and authentically walk my path to navigate living, growing, and unfolding my own life from the inside out.

The 4 Pillars
To Lasting Transformation

Growth Mindset & State of Mind

Become a Mindful Architect: Lead a valued life in awareness and with compassion, and growth mindset. Explore, create, and take action with purpose, clarity, focus, and direction for lasting fulfillment.

Embrace Your Own Life & The Essence of Life: Experience your state of mind & being, cultivate sustainable balance, confidence, enjoyment, peace of mind & heart, moment by moment.


Embrace Your Wholeness
Learn to be present, and live with the past, present, and future

Are you in the now? Are you present and aware? Can you listen to hear? Are you seeing past your negativity, limiting behaviours and dysfunction? How are you sensing your world? Can you see past the patterns of your behaviours, and go through them to create a new outcome. Move from fears, desires, tension, trauma and resistance, and step into a balanced neutral observing position. Cultivate deep self-wisdom, learn, accept and move from the past, step into your power and embrace the present, moment by moment. Realise your vision aligned with your values, goals, and well-being. Dancing with possibilities, navigate the future with boldness by taking mindful commited actions.


Walk Your Path Boldly
Journey with mindfulness, compassion,
and courage

Through deepening your experience and further learning of your emotional landscape, discover stress and rest management and generate peaceful resilience, taking bold steps in your own direction, compassionately. Uncover your core values and human needs. Understand your behaviors, attitudes, and limiting beliefs. Mastering the art of being – energy, time, space, and synchronicities – empowers you to take bold, peaceful steps on your unique path. Deepen your connection with yourself and those who align, learn to navigate or release those who don't.


Love Yourself, Fully
Learn to love, and to be loved,
imperfections and all

Can you love? Are you loving? Can you give, can you recieve? Who do you want to love? And who do you want to be loved by?... Cultivate inner peace and connection through stillness, silence, self-discovery, and non-judgemental mindful practices. Discover your capacity for balance, centeredness, rest, curiosity, kindness, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-love. Deepen your connections and learn to relate in authentic reciprocity, fostering compassion with family members, key relationships, close circles, colleagues, bosses and peers, and even casual interactions.​


Flow with Peace of Mind & Open Heart
Carry insights, lessons, and learnings with confidence, strength, and humility

With self-reflection and mindful action, continuously adapt, adjust and unfold your life with a stable mindset and deeper compassion as you continue your journey. Live deeper and more authentically, moment by moment, informed by your understanding and nature of yourself, others, and the essence of life. Embracing the ongoing journey of deeper peace, compassion, synchronicities and freedom. As Jack Kornfield reminds us, "After the ecstasy, the laundry." Living with a Growth mindset and State of Mind is a continuous unfolding journey, not a single destination...

Are you on a journey of self inquiry, self discovery, embodied spirituality?


I work with a select handful of clients who are on a journey of deeper living, connection, relating. (Including specialist, therapists, academics, coaches, healers).

I provide legal psychedelic 'trip sitting' in Europe, as well as bespoke preperation and aftercare coaching - counselling - harm prevention education with psychedelics and plant medicine for a wide variety of uses.

From deep individual healing, acceptance, relational work, creative or consciousness exploring, or for personal/professional growth & expanded creativity/problem solving.

I serve, support, facilitate others to re-integrate their new perspectives with themselves, everyday life, family, and in community, or in their organisation/business.

Standard sessions:
For these clients I work using a various blend of mindfulness, meditation, coaching, counselling, hypnotherapy and compassionate self-inquiry to help them connect deeply to themselves, loved ones, their work, business, nature and the wider world.
Professional preperation, facilitation, and aftercare provided.
Ethical accountability support, and supervision also guaranteed.

There is currently a great deal of research into the value and use of psychedelics in healing, well-being, and overcoming emotional and spiritual traumas, as well as for self-discovery, creativity, exploring consciousness, problem solving and deepening ones lived experience.

I have been following psychedelic work on and off since having near death experiences (NDE's), amongst many deeply challenging life experiences in my early 20's.

I've been concerned with the speed and way in which psychedelics are understood, being used, how training is being undertaken, and what will be of the mainstream cultural acceptance should these types of medicines become widely accessible. 


In recent years, I was very fortunate to be offered a sponsorship opportunity to further my work and studies with psychedelics powerful therapuetic potentials on a facilitator training and integration programme with professional healthcare providers - Essence Institute.

I have been liaising with those who are carrying out research studies and teaching various psychedelic courses, regularly attending Exeter University, UK, and speak with other academics and creatives in the field globally. I'm also very grateful to be enrolled on Psychedlics Today highy esteemed 2024 Cohort 3  Vital Training Programme.


I continue to follow and remain up to date on psychedelic developments in England closely, with both the mainstream, and underground. 

I am also available to provide specialist coaching (and consulting) services to therapists, academics, healers, businesses, and organisations supporting, educating, or working with psychedelics, or supporting others using psychedelics.

Live a Brave, Bold,
Better Life.

I'm available for private 1:1, couples, groups or team sessions

“I was struggling with anxiety and didn't feel I had the tools through previous attempts to control what I was feeling and how it affected my relationships. Danny was able to guide me down new paths to see things I hadn't seen before in an organic way, with nothing feeling forced.  All the realisations I came to were my own, Danny has a way of making you feel comfortable enough to connect the dots without doing it for you. Now, I feel my life is a bit more under my control, with a new found peace that lets me accept things for what they are. My symptoms have lessened to a point where I feel I can control them in a more measured way but I know Danny has my back if anything flares up in the future."

- Steve D. UK

“I came to the field both focused on ‘inner-work’, but also to psychedelic medicine, as a newcomer. The main factor I was looking for in a facilitator was trust. It was important to me to feel safe and in good hands, and that is exactly the experience I have had with Dan. His approach is the perfect balance of warm and caring, but professional too - and he knows when to push a little harder to get that extra depth or work out of his clients! Dan’s structured, bespoke and flexible approach to the whole journey has really made an incredible impact. The build up before ‘the event’, and the focus on continued integration afterwards using personal talking therapies has been invaluable. I really think it has made a deep and long-lasting effect on me, and I feel confident about my future having been armed with both knowledge and tools. I have had a transformational experience, and would recommend working with Dan to anyone who is curious about some ‘inner world’ exploration and finding some new ways to enhance wellbeing and your approach to life.”

“Although I wasn’t planning to have a second psychedelic medicine experience, I can say confidently in hindsight that the combination of the two has had a profoundly positive impact on my life. The combination of the medicinal experiences, and the integration work that Dan led me through (prior, in between, and following the sessions) all weaved together, somewhat magically, to create an incredibly strong therapeutic experience. I could not recommend working with Dan enough - his emphasis on the importance of the work in and around the experiences is unique, and where I believe the magic lies.”

- Sarah P. UK

"Would highly recommend connecting with Dan and Farside. I had been following a meditation practise for a number of months but found it difficult to bring mindfulness into my daily life. Dan has helped me incorporate mindfulness habits as part of my routine alongside bringing a real practical perspective to some of the concepts I had been struggling with. Thanks, Dan!"

- Tom C. AU

“As a longstanding client of Dan, I have had the privilege of getting to know him on both a personal, and professional basis, and can attest to his passion and thirst for knowledge in thefield of “personal development”.He is someone who genuinely cares about people and the natural world. In the process of getting to know Danny I have witnessed, first hand, his journey, and his strong commitment to expand his own knowledge in order to help others.”

- Christopher M. IE
