The Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) process is designed to support clients in gaining access to the unconscious. The medicine acts as a facilitator to soften ego defenses and allow repressed material to rise to the surface. Talk therapy then allows us to work through and examine those emotions in a safe and freeing environment.
KAP can be used to treat a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, and PTSD. At lower doses, ketamine produces a hypnotic or dreamlike state. At higher doses, clients can have deeply meaningful transpersonal or mystical experiences.
Integration is at the center of the work we do. We’ll explore what emotions arose, what those mean to the client, what they saw, and how they felt after the experience. We explore what was seen and felt in a way that allows for personal discovery you wouldn’t otherwise get in therapy that doesn’t incorporate ketamine.
