Brunch with Sifted: Amanda Feilding and Cosmo Feilding-Mellen on the psychedelic renaissance

Her childhood home is now the headquarters of one of the world’s leading experimental psychedelic medicine startups: Beckley Psytech. The conversation is halted by the arrival of Cosmo Feilding-Mellen, Feilding’s son and the CEO of Beckley Psytech, who has a lunchtime appointment to get to. She points me to the results of a 2018 study conducted by Imperial College London in partnership with The Beckley Foundation, a non-profit psychedelic research organisation founded by Feilding in 1998. Feilding-Mellen, meanwhile, is the more modern face of Beckley Psytech and affably plays the role of reining in his mother’s obvious personal passion for psychedelics. In January this year, Beckley Psytech secured regulatory approval to begin a clinical trial investigating the effects of psilocybin in the treatment of SUNHA.
