Can Ketamine and Psychotherapy help me?
Ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP) is the use of Ketamine alongside psychotherapy that together can be a powerful treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, substance dependencies, chronic pain as well as for existential, psychological, and personal growth.
Ketamine is a FDA approved medicine that is used to help people create a space of healing by inducing a mild anesthetic, anxiolytic, antidepressant, and at times psychedelic effects. Ketamine opens the space for relaxation from everyday concerns while maintaining conscious awareness. In this way, your thinking brain steps aside to allow for accelerated psycho-spiritual growth and deep Self-transformation.
If you are suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, alcohol abuse or want to explore the Self for personal growth, contact us now and schedule a free consultation. Find out if KAP is a good treatment option for you.
Role of the Therapist
The Therapist is focused on client safety, personalized care and facilitates the experience through guided therapy and integration. Though the experience is mild and for many people pleasurable, it can also feel unusual and cause a bit of worry in those that like to be in full control. The dreamlike state and low psyche input, allows your therapist to use effective tools that help in the healing of old wounds or the promotion of a new sense of awareness for sustained long-term relief of symptoms.
How Does Ketamine Work?
Is there side effects to the use of ketamine?
Research shows that ketamine binds to receptors in the brain that increase the amount of the neurotransmitter called glutamate. It works by stimulating new dendritic and synaptic growth between the neurons connecting the mood center.
The most common side effects of ketamine are nausea, dizziness, or drowsiness after the session.
