Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy

What is Ketamine?

Ketamine is used all over the world as an anesthetic.

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the therapeutic properties of ketamine as a tool for treatment-resistant depression, and other psychiatric disorders. 

In addition to its anesthetic effects, ketamine can have psychedelic properties that can launch people into an expansive, transpersonal space. Currently, ketamine is the only legal psychedelic available for psychedelic assisted therapy.

How is ketamine used in therapy?

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy combines the therapeutic effects of Ketamine with the support of the therapeutic relationship, to help clients explore difficult psychological material and to facilitate resolution.

 

During your 3 hour ketamine session, you will be supported by your therapist, while you enter a state of expanded awareness. You may be able to access feelings and memories that are normally beyond your awareness.

 

Your therapist will work with you to target and heal the underlying causes of your depression, anxiety or trauma. Our goal is to help you gain a greater understanding of your symptoms and work towards resolution.

In this approach to ketamine treatment, the medicine is typically administered via a lozenge.

What is the difference between ketamine assisted psychotherapy and ketamine infusions?

A ketamine infusion session usually lasts about 40 minutes and there is normally no psychotherapeutic engagement during or after the session. Ketamine’s biochemical effect on the brain can alleviate symptoms for many people, however those changes may not be lasting.

 

In our model, ketamine is used as an adjunct to therapy. We use the altered psychedelic state that gets created with ketamine, to help you access your subconscious mind. Ketamine’s anesthetic properties can help you access painful material with greater ease.
