Simon was a member of the leadership team at the inaugural conference in 2013 in Tarapoto, Peru of ATOP [Ayahuasca Treatment Outcome Project] a multidisciplinary research project headed by Dr. Brian Rush, PhD, Professor, Dept. of Psychiatry, University of Toronto Canada, and remains a Research Associate with ATOP. ATOP was formed in part because of a global increase in interest in the therapeutic use of Ayahuasca & Simon’s expertise in addressing energetic harm in these contexts a factor in Dr Rush’s extension of invitation to him.
Simon has conducted treatments for the patients of Takiwasi, Peru, a centre for the rehabilitation of drug addiction and for research on Traditional Medicines. Takiwasi is recognised by the Peruvian Ministry of Health and Simon attended as visiting Curandero. This invitation was extended as a result of various collaborations with the centre’s founder Dr Jacques Mabit.
Closer to home Simon is a acknowledged as working in a manner akin to Ngangkari, Maparnjarra or Marngitt by senior Law Men in the West, Northern and Central regions of Australia, and has been called upon to offer curing in that context. He maintains a private practice in Mid North NSW where he sees an increasing amount of clients needing assistance as a result of Ayahuasca & other entheogen usage. He also produces radio features on the subject of healing for ABC RN.
